Now, as always, we here at Beats Per Minute are looking for budding writers and photographers with a distinct voice and ambition and drive for discovering, writing about and photographing new music. As BPM moves into the future, we’re seeking to scuttle a bit closer to the fringes. We want writers willing to dig past the surface level cobwebs of the internet, to constantly expand their musical knowledge not just in breadth, but in depth. Reach out if the possibility of being involved in an intensely passionate music community, built around the process of digging for hidden gems and meeting in the middle to cover the most vibrant and forward reaching larger releases, sounds like a rewarding effort.
If you are the writer or photographer we’re looking for (or know someone that is!) shoot us an email at email@example.com between now and February 15th with a list of your top ten most interesting records of 2012 and links to any recent music writing samples you may have.
