Happy Wednesday once more, readers and music video lovers. Today we’re celebrating “Underrated Drummers Month” and wishing Rick Buckler, drummer of British trio The Jam, a happy 62nd birthday! Who are The Jam? Only one of the finest rock outfits to come out of the 1977-82 UK punk/Brit-pop era, (if you ask this editor, anyhow). If you’re less familiar, dive into The Jam’s wonderful discography AFTER you enjoy these wonderful TuneCore Artist videos.
TuneCore Artists are releasing tons of new music every day. Each week we check out the new TuneCore releases and choose a few at random to feature on the blog.

It’s Wednesday once again, and we’re hear to entertain and distract with a new round-up of TuneCore Artist music videos. We’ve also thrown in a bonus video below, in an effort to commemorate The Beach Boys’ September 27, 1964 TV debut on the Ed Sullivan Show! They performed “I Get Around” and (one of this editor’s favorites) “Wendy”.
Happy Wednesday, everyone. In this week’s dose of weird music history, on this day in 1982, our main man Rod Stewart got jacked for his $50,000 Porsche by a gunman – midday, while out shopping, mind you – on Hollywood Boulevard. Ah the 80s. In the theme of getting all shook up midday, please allow us to bring you this dose of afternoon distraction courtesy of some very talented and entertaining TuneCore Artists!
Here at TuneCore, we’re always on the move to offer independent artists with as many outlets by which to reach fans as possible. That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with Boomplay Music, a streaming and download platform serving music fans in pan-Africa and African diaspora markets.
Boomplay Music – an app developed by TECNO MOBILE LIMITED – aims to deliver the best African and International music while also “building a sustainable digital music ecosystem for African artists.” With seven million users and a growth rate of over 700,000 new users per month, the platform seems to be doing just that!
As a global digital music distributor, TuneCore allows artists in all territories to take advantage of the major growth in streaming and discovery occurring all over the world and well outside their markets. Just because you aren’t touring in African countries (…yet), you can still make your releases available for music fans there to enjoy. By distributing your upcoming or existing singles, EPs, and albums to Boomplay Music, you’re able to enjoy a wider potential reach in an ever-expanding market.
With the Boomplay Music app, music lovers can do the following:
- Download music,
- Subscribe for unlimited music,
- Listen to their favorite songs,
- Watch videos on the go,
- Curate personal playlists,
- Follow, engage and interact with fellow users,
