Listen Recommends: CMJ 2014

Every October the CMJ Music Marathon descends on New York City in a wave of excitement over the chance to see the best up and coming bands. For five days the Music Marathon will invade the city with 1,300+ artists performing in 80+ venues to 125,000+ fans. That’s a lot of music, but to help you navigate this massive event we’ve chosen 15 artists that we think you shouldn’t miss. Check out our list below and listen to our picks and more on our CMJ 2014 Spotify playlist. Have fun and take some advice from a music marathoner of years past: “just because the drinks are free doesn’t mean you should have 12 of them”.
