[Update: Podcasts have been added as downloads via IVM, below] Greetings friends and readers. I have now finished producing Episode 2 of our weekly podcast series. This is Episode 2 and centers around 90′s music. Find out more info below. If you missed Episode 1 of our Podcast, you can listen here/download at Soundcloud (or here on YouTube). This podcast was edited with help from Scott Hamilton. Thanks Scott! (The reason I am posting this so soon after the first edition went live is because I finished the first one last weekend but it technically didn’t go up until Wed.). Future editions will appear on the website weekly. Remember, you can “Download” the podcast exclusively through Soundcloud now for a limited time. Once we max out our allotted downloads, I’ll put it on IVM for free download. Take care and thanks for listening.
Check out our first ever Indie Vision Music Podcast, produced by yours truly. This is my first time ever recording my voice in podcast form and doing this sort of broadcast. I promise with your suggestions, it’ll get better and better. Anyway, you can check it out below. I hope you like it (or hate it). Enjoy!
Hey all, how are you on this fine Wednesday? Hopefully you’re all doing well and staying out of the cold. So let’s get this started. It’s been previously reported that we intend to do some big things this year in relation to site re-design and features implementation. We fully plan to do some things but first we wanted to come to you and ask what you’d like to see us change, feature, or implement in the new IVM website? We…
Greetings to you all and a very happy new year. I am sorry for my absence and lack of updates here on IVM the past few weeks. During this time of year it’s always pretty crazy around the jones house with all the holiday preparations and what not. I usually take a break around Christmas and New Years just to relax and detach from the Internet. Now that we are in 2013, we would like to start getting to work…
Rottweiler Records and Indie Vision Music present “Fleas Naughty Dog Vol. 3″, a 15 track Christmas themed free compilation. Check it out below.
Instead of trying to come up with new Artist of the Week and Featured Release spots for the month of December, the final month of the year, I thought i’d come to you our readers for advice on just who to feature. I was thinking of mixing it up with some great “Christmas” albums from artists we write about or maybe some albums we missed during the year that deserve the “Featured” treatment here at IVM. Sound off in the…
I put up a new poll for fun. I just selected a random bunch of bands who have releases planned for 2013 (or rumored) and put them up for voting. You can select up to “6″ from the choices available. If you see an album missing, you can always discuss it here and vote for “other”. I couldn’t remember every band out there with a release so I did my best just to select some that I knew. Thanks!
Don’t forget, we have our brand new hoodies available for pre-order right here. They are available in Gray and Black, sizes Small-XXL and only $20ea. All orders will ship the first week of December. Please support us and Benaiah Clothing by purchasing one of these cozy hoodies. Buy one for your friend, your family, heck even Grandma or Grandpa would love one! Thanks everyone.
I am doing a special “Where Do You Get Your Music” Poll just to gauge the public’s (readers) recent opinions regarding where they get their music from. You can vote anonymously, just be honest. Feel free to come back here to this post and discuss where you get your music these days. With the fast pace of technology, some people might not even “buy” music anymore but rather stream it from an online source/radio station. Let us know what you…
Our brand new IVM Hoodie is now up as a preorder on Benaiah Clothing for $20.00 and two different color options. All orders will ship December 4th. Keep cozy and warm this Christmas and support Indie Vision Music. View the two color options below. Pre-order here.
[Update: I uploaded a better mockup image below] That’s right friends, I have decided to move forward with the new design and print it on a black pull over or as Phil Metalhed would say, “old generic+ ovadun blak”. Most people, including myself, prefer Black hoodies so this time around that’s what we went with. Gotta sell them right? The fine people at Benaiah Clothing will be selling this merch for us again on their website. Pre-orders go live beginning Sunday! All orders will ship December 4th. We definitely plan more designs/merch in 2013 so stay tuned. You can take a peek at the hoodie, below. We hope to sell these for $20ea!! Insane! So those of you who love IVM and what we stand for, please consider buying one of these hoodies. It’s great promotion for us and helps our friends at Benaiah Clothing. Thank you.
The Votes are in, Barack Obama has been re-elected as President of the United States of America. Whether you love him or hate him, let’s put all that behind us and focus on our Faith and Love for one another. I am personally glad to finally have breathing room when watching TV without being force fed all these different political commercials and ads. It’s over and now the next 4 years begin (to go downhill, lol).
2012 has been a tremendou…
I have decided to start an instagram account for IndieVisionMusic. There you’ll find a collection of photos representing our website and hopefully in the future a few “Live” Pics from various shows as well. I’ll try to keep it interesting.

[Update: New Poll regarding which color Long Sleeve or Hoodie has been posted on main page of this site. Please vote and let us know what color you'd most want to wear. Thanks] Benaiah Clothing were kind enough to design us this idea for a new merch item. We are thinking it’ll either be a long sleeve or pull over hoodie. Please sound off in the comments with your thoughts and which merch item you would prefer to purchase. (We can also remove the little “eye” logo from the bottom left side if everyone wants us to do that).

We will soon begin work on designing a few new merch items for Indie Vision Music. We are interested in a new Tshirt design and a Zippered Hoodie (would be our first one ever since launching 12 years ago!) but we are open to more ideas/input. What type of merch from Indie Vision Music would you be most inclined to order? Tshirt, Long Sleeve T, Zippered Hoodie, Sweatshirt (Crew), Flex Fit Hat, Stickers, etc etc? This would be another collaboration…
I need to be clear about something. Neither myself, the graphic artists (Benaiah Clothing), or any staff member at IVM are into Illuminati, Free Masonry, or any other “Occult” type organization. The “new” logo was simply chosen because I thought it looked cool and I dug the colors/design. There is no deep hidden meaning behind the lightning bolt eye other than it representing our “Vision” (Indie VISION Music). I’ve been hearing some complaints and/or confusion relating to our new logo.…

Today’s blog is mostly about those long forgotten “Classics”, the bands and/or albums that have been largely overlooked by a new generation (and those that follow). I made a post about this on my facebook page and I figured i’d elaborate on the subject here. Here is what was said: Even though some bands have enjoyed recent reunions (and success), there are numerous others that have been virtually forgotten. Our society moves at such a quick pace that some truly inspirational and innovative bands have been left in the dust. Why is it that the “industry” hardly looks back at what makes current music so great? I know that in the Christian market, there is barely any room for “Classics” and the trend is to keep progressing forward to the point that we forget where we came from. Every decade has some winners and losers but let’s embrace the past and remember the “once greats” for then we’ll know what makes us so great.
In order to cut down on the massive amount of tracks received for the Passionate Hope series, I have decided to split the next compilation into two volumes. Vol. 2 will release for free download beginning July 1st and Vol. 3 goes up August 1st. To see artists for Vol. 2 check out the official Event page here on Facebook. For Vol. 3, click here for Event Page. To start building hype and anticipation, tweet to @ivmusic and use hashtag #passionatehope when mentioning these free compilations. Like all the music offered here at IVM, these compilations will also be FREE! Spread the word. Album cover can be seen below.
Interested bands, singer/songwriters, and general artists, please read the message below in regards to our new FREE compilation I am putting together right now. It will be titled “Passionate Hope Vol. 2: Songs of Worship” and I hope to release it July 1st for free through this website. Remember, tweet #passionatehope2 on twitter when mentioning this post. The message below contains information for your band/artist to get a place on our free compilation. *Remember, songs should be submitted by June 15th! Join the Event Page on Facebook
