Bands Under the Radar

Today we are extremely excited to announce a partnership with Bands Under the Radar, featuring awesome new music from different up-and-coming bands and artists.  Check out the App Studio in your BitTorrent or µTorrent software to download now, or click here.

Since Kami Knake started Bands Under the Radar (BUTR) back in 2004, it has grown into a trusted online music channel for a niche audience of music lovers hungry to discover new bands that are truly the best of the rest.

Kami’s podcast has been downloaded over 3 million times, making her and BUTR a true tastemaker and advocate for independent music artists everywhere, plus growing its grassroots fan base all over the Web. Now the BitTorrent audience has a chance to get a taste of BUTR.

To kickoff the BUTR app, we have 13 amazing bands for you to check out including: Lovedrug (think Muse meets Modest Mouse); Ringside, featuring Scott Thomas and actor Balthazar Getty in their long awaited follow-up to their 2005 self-titled Geffen debut; The Daylights, known for their giant melodies and cinematic sound who have toured on sold-out tours with Katy Perry; and Nashville, TN sensation Slow Motion Centerfold.

Whether you’re into funky riffs, stadium anthems or you’re on the hunt for the next Radiohead, we highly recommend each of the 13 bands that debut with the BUTR app.
