Series Creator: Anthony Fantano 

The Needle Drop is your weekly fix of rock, pop, electronic, and experimental music of the independent persuasion.

The Needle Drop is a radio show, podcast, and blog about music that will excite you. It's nothing but songs you've never heard on albums you haven't seen by bands you don't know.

We take a special focus on independent artists, so we avoid the mind-numbing garbage major record labels are putting out these days.

Every week, The Needle Drop features an hour of the best rock, pop, electronic, and experimental music out there today. It's hosted by Anthony Fantano, a music enthusiast, blogger, bass player, weightlifter, vegan, and professional weirdo. He tries to make the show an authentic new music experience, and the next best thing to having a friend with an almost endless record collection.
