I received a google alert yesterday about something Indie Vision Music related and realized it was our very own Wikipedia page! I have no idea who or what created this but I should say thank you. A few things might be incorrect but for the most part, it rings pretty true. I’m not sure how long it’ll remain up since it says some references/links are needed to maintain relevancy. For now, click here to check it out …
Indie Vision Music presents Episode 6 of our podcast series. In this edition I discuss the new IVM App and other music related goodies. If you want to catch up on past podcasts, click here (or listen within the new app). Enjoy!
Happy 10 year anniversary to the Dismissed “Taking the Good With the Bad Album”, released in March of 2003 on Indie Vision Music. Not too many people know who this band was but they held a special place in my heart. I once saw them open up for Fall Out Boy to a venue of maybe 100 people max in 2003. It’s funny when you think of where one band went and the direction of the other band. I’ve learned a lot in 10 years but I still look back with fondness on those Dismissed guys and their music. RIP Dismissed. If you want to download Dismissed “The Complete Collection” click here or Kings to You “The Antidote” (name change after Dismissed) click here. Read more of my story, below.
The official IVM App is now available in the Apple iOS Store. Plus it’s also available in the Android Market as well. I have tweaked the app a bit from when it was first launched almost 2 weeks ago. The new version in the Apple Store reflects these changes. Please write us a review and score the app in each of the stores it’s available in. I love feedback so let me know how you like it. Also, if…
I have created a brand new Indie Vision Music Mobile site. It is viewable by visiting our website on your mobile device and gives you the option to add to your home screen. The App has been submitted to the IOS/Android Markets and it’ll be available for free, soon. For now though, enjoy all the functionality of our mobile app on your mobile device by visiting indievisionmusic.com in your browser. Enjoy!
I am now opening the door to all interested bands/artists/songwriters who would like to get their music featured in an upcoming IVM Podcast. I will gladly feature any band with a good recording who fits the content of this website (“Christian” musicians/songwriters). If you have a good recording, please read the information below on how to submit your song
I finally got my home PC to work long enough to finish up the new episode of the Indie Vision Music Podcast. This is Episode 5. You can listen/download it below. I will also include the artists in the podcast as well as links, below. Check out all the other IVM podcasts right here in case you missed one.
I am proud to bring you Episode 4 of our Indie Vision Music Podcast. This time centered around Punk Rock and the Thumper Punk Records roster of bands. I included as many of their bands as I could although I think some didn’t make it on this time around. That’s ok though, we’ll do another one in the future. So sit back, relax, and get ready bump some excellent raw punk rock. Make sure to check out Thumper Punk here on the web: [Facebook] [Website] [Buy Merch].

Welcome to another installment of the Indie Vision Music Podcast. Today’s episode centers around Indie Vision Music the label and all the bands who released albums through IVM dating back to 2003. 2013 is the 10 year anniversary of Dismissed “Taking the Good With the Bad” (March 03′), as well as Forgotten Arrival “Through Your Eyes” and Next in Line “Traffic” (both released in fall of 03′). If you never knew the back history of IVM or the bands associated with it from way back, now is your chance to catch up. So with that said, you can stream it via YouTube below and download it (in mp3 format) right here at IVM, below. Enjoy, and Happy 10 years Dismissed! (Part 2 will be up in a few days).
We are gearing up to refresh and repopulate the Album Release List with all the great releases scheduled to come out this year. We need your help though to accomplish this task. You can give us updates one of two ways, post band/title/label/release date in the comments below this post or email them to me here. Josh M. will also be working on this as well when he gets a free moment. For now though, I am going to…
[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.

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. If you want to follow Indie Vision Music just look up our username which is @indievisionmusic Enjoy!
[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).
[Update: Post updated today to allow for all your "new" readers/fans of IVM to get your comment pic shown (Gravatar)] Do you want to have your own image instead of the default IVM image to show with your comments?

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.…

Get Shakedown Boulevard’s 2011 full length “Heart of a Fighter” for free beginning July 25th at 1am PST. This 14 track album (+Bonus Squad Five-0 cover) is sure to win over any fan of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, The Gaslight Anthem, The Hold Steady, Gasoline Heart, and even Squad Five-0. I praised this album last year and was a big fan of it when it released (still am). So I am very excited to bring you this FREE full length download tomorrow morning right here at IVM.
These titles are MY personal faves of the first half of 2012 (so far). This is only an (MY) opinion and does not reflect the overall personal listening habits of other such staff members at IVM.
Get your new Indie Vision Music tshirts on sale for just $10.00 right here in the Benaiah Clothing store. Sale will last through July.
