6forty project’s goal is to be a comprehensive on-line resource for independent music, spreading the word to as many ears as possible. As long as listeners are streaming and buying the releases that they read about on this site or on 6forty’s various social media feeds, or hear on a 6forty mix-tape or on the radio stream, my efforts have been a success. So when it comes to selecting favorites from 2019, I’ll leave that decision up to you. Listed below are 50 brilliant records that have been on heaviest rotation at 6forty HQ throughout the year (release date order). Follow the links (click on each band name), press play, and most importantly, spread the word about the music that you love, and encourage others to do the same. Even if you can’t afford to pay for releases, a simple social media post can be an invaluable benefit to the bands. Thank you!

At the end of this post is a compiled list of the 2019 weekly releases along with links to all 6forty project social media feeds and radio stream. The weekly releases document includes live links for your convenience – countless hours of music to explore and enjoy. Feel free to download and share the PDF.
