Celebrate Independents’ Month With The Orchard & A2IM

Celebrate Independents’ Month With The Orchard & A2IMIf you haven’t heard, indie music coalition A2IM has named the month of June Independents’ Month. From June 5th to July 5th, the music world is celebrating some of the most creative and driven minds in the industry. Want to get involved? Consider this your official invitation.

First thing’s first, you’ll need to know what to listen to. You can find full spreads of incredible indie artists on some of your favorite digital platforms. For example, the Apple Music and iTunes teams put together a spread of music from independent artists, labels and curators inspired by A2IM’s Libera Awards and other sonic trailblazers.

Among this wonderful flurry of features are countless friends of The Orchard. You can find Daptone Records, Dangerbird RecordsNuclear Blast and more under the curators section, dishing you releases from some of the best in the biz, new and old. Flipping through the numerous featured records on these pages, you’ll also notice albums from Red Fang, 3teeth, Adrian Younge, Diet Cig, Anderson .Paak, William Onyeabor and way more.

You can also join in on the fun using Pandora and iHeartRadio. Hear from Libera Awards winners, such as our very own Charles Bradley and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, via official Libera Awards stations and playlists. No matter your taste or genre, these killer curations have you covered.

Mark your calendars for next year, #IndieMonth is here to stay. Until then, tune in to these outlets and get your fix of indie’s finest.
