About Us

Although IGIF might look different than the IGIFs of the past, our intentions are what they’ve always been.

For hours every day we strive to complete two goals: First, to introduce new bands to people who are just as excited about music as we are. Second, but not least, to provide an accessible avenue of promotion and distribution to bands and artists who might not otherwise pick up the recognition they deserve. This is the only reason why music blogs should exist.

That being said there are still two kinds of music blogs — 1) those that cycle hype and talk about bands that are already being talked about, and 2) those that seek out new bands and new sounds. We always strive to be the latter because that’s what IGIF is all about: helping you discover awesome new music and helping bands discover awesome new fans.

BBC“The blog that’s hosting this gig, I Guess I’m Floating, kind of sums up a lot of the best things from SXSW this year.”

The Phoenix“…uber-hip indie blawg.” [LAWLS - ed.]

Hello there,
We are a record label floating around the San Fran Bay Area and stumbled on your floatation device. We are on a similar mission. We would like to submit some of ours to you and certainly would follow suit in following or helping your wonderful venture in anyway we can.
Thanks for your time and efforts,
Don Zimmer
Floating Records
