Musique Machine is a totally non-profit webzine that has been reviewing all manner of extreme, odd and experimental music and art since 2001.
We don't list an address for sending in review submissions as we like to first hear samples of artists work - to see if it fits in with our likes and sonic ethos, but if you would like to send an item in for review consideration please contact us at questions=at=musiquemachine=dot=com.
As you'll see unlike many music websites/webzines, we don't have any advertising or connection with other media parties (who could possible pull our strings)- so we are fully independent and very proud of it!
The site, it's hosting and posting of review copies to our team of writers is self funded, so if you would like to support the sites running costs- donations via paypal are most grateful and can be sent to: helpmusiquemachine=at=gmail=dot=com. We also now have a pateron page here https://www.patreon.com/musiquemachine
