The Revue Takes an Indefinite Hiatus

      Our favorite Indie blog announced that it is on hiatus, indefinitely. We are hopeful that the staff at The Revue ( just needs to refresh themselves. This is the third blog in five years that we considered our “go to” site for Indie discoveries before its “break.” We are more optimistic of The Revue returning than we were the first two, but…

     Pasting the January 3, 2019 announcement:
     We would like to inform you that we will be taking an INDEFINITE HIATUS. While we still greatly enjoy searching and hearing new music from emerging artists, it's time for us to take a break after 5.5 years. This started off as a hobby, but it turned into a non-paying, 7-days-a-week, 50-out-of-52-week job. We do not know how long this hiatus will be, but it could be permanent. We will, however, still be searching for new music, but for our own listening pleasure.
     We would like to thank everyone who has supported us over the years, frequently visited our site, and sent us comments. We would like to extend our gratitude to all the publicists and record labels who sent us music, and many of whom have become friends.
     And finally, we would like to extend a very special thank you to all the artists and bands who dazzled, amazed, and wowed us; who had us pumping our fists in the middle of a café or on the bus; who made us dance in the kitchen or in the office; and who made us exuberantly exclaim, "F*ck yeah!" Continue to push boundaries and not succumb to the mainstream because there are people listening. We will still be listening.

      Indie Obsessive understands the reasoning. But we hope to see you return. You are missed already.
     Here is an appropriately named track, which The Revue featured on December 13, 2018:
“Don’t Quit” by Pure Mids

  1. Very sad to hear - I hate the mainstream. I am certainly listening.
    I understand the pressures of having to work to live versus the desire to create. A constant battle. It's a very tough business, no matter which creative field you're in.
    Appropriate song.
