The Final Top Five...

Thanks for the support. We've worked hard to get through this season and the only reason we have is because of you the fan. Thank you to each and every band that has been apart of this project. I hope some where in all of this we've done some good for some one. Thank you to Tony for helping to develop the concept and to Adam, Johan, Nicole, Jacob, Travis, and Charles for being brave enough to join in as reviewers and offer up some much needed advice and input. Thank you as well to our guest hosts this year Brent, Rocky, Erik, and Andy for helping out. It's been an honor to get to know you all.

The beginning Of The End...

Thank you to everyone that has been involved in the creation production and success here at The Unsigned Countdown and The Underground Recap Sessions. Your support and interest, your shares and likes have been what has kept us gong even in times when we've wondered if we should go on. Still at this point in time questions remain. Should we consider a third season, How should we evolve, and what should our goals be if we were to continue?

This episode is the beginning of the end of our second season. We will be taking a month after this to reflect on our future. To gather feedback and advice and decide if we should come back stronger then ever. If you have an opinion Tweet us @jarcodes and let us know what we can do to become a better platform for the Bands Musicians and Artists that are so special to us. Thank you to all one hundred bands that have allowed us to feature their music. Here and now we have for your entertainment ten new unsigned and Independent songs just for you.

And I'm Like It Just Makes Me Angry...

Thanks for checking out our The Underground Recap Sessions. I was and am lucky enough to be joined by Travis, Jacob, Charles, and Andy this month as we discussed The songs previously featured in our October First Five. The idea here was never to gather a goup of haters, or ass kissers but instead to get a group a cross section of pure music lovers. Ask them to listen, rank, and then review the music we featured in our Countdown episodes. So while some may love a song and others hate it. In the end these episodes will offer honest feedback in a way that no other show can or does.

Some other review type podcasts might feature a band and tracks from that band, they might offer some middle of the road review as to not offend, and some shows may feature a song and kiss the musicians ass, How would that help anyone? Fans know what they like, Whats good. They don't need some broadcast telling them to like garbage just because the host wants to cozy up to some artist. Thats why we exist. To offer honest feedback to up and coming bands. To offer an outlet to them, and to promote what the record labels are worried about. Great and fresh Independent and Unsigned music. Hopefully you have as much fun listening as we have discussing. Hopefully you discover a new band or musician or artist to follow and support.

Don't be scared...

Welcome to The Unsigned Countdown. This is our Top Five of October and what that means is that these are the songs out of the ten featured this month that our expert judges liked the best. You will just have to listen to find out id in fact you agree with them this round.

What we do here at Jarcodes is we gather some of the best new and brutal independent and Unsigned music from across the globe and bring it to our judges in a list form. They list and come up with their own opinions based on things like personal preference style production innovation and more. They then submit to us their list in order of favorite to least favorite and along with the other judges lists we add the points up and come up with our Countdown. We then feature those tracks based on that order and then put those judges on the hot seat when we record The Underground Recap Sessions

In those episodes and during the Live stream recording we ask the judges why they ranked the songs the way they did. We ask the musicians bands and artists to join and listen in to the broadcast on our YouTube Channel @Jarcodes so they can help offer information as needed, and we ask the fans, Theirs and ours to listen as well so as to offer their insights and opinions. All during one recording. We offer feedback, interviews, and more that night and then we break that recording down into two podcast episodes. Stream those across that globe I mentioned, and Boom.

We air our episodes here on SoundCloud. We also use the power of The Stitcher Smart Radio app and iTunes as well as We can be found by searching The Unsigned Countdown. We can be supported on places such as Facebook, Twitter, InstaGram, YouTube, SoundCloud, HypedSound, MixCloud, Google+, and Tumblr by searching Jarcodes. And we do all of this for free all for the love of music, and the promotion of the brave musicians that allow us to feature their music.
