The Music Alliance Pact is two years old this month and there’s a treat in store for you today in celebration of the occasion.
I’ve tried to take music blogging in less obvious directions with The Pop Cop, but the success of MAP has been completely unexpected.
Since its launch in October 2008 with 12 blogs – each representing the finest new music from their country of origin on the 15th of every month – the project has trebled in size and currently incorporates all the territories listed at the foot of the blog.
To date, 24 Scottish artists have been picked by The Pop Cop for MAP exposure and now 23* of them have donated a song for a special anniversary compilation which you can download for free.
Many of the tracks are exclusive to this album or very rare, so think of it as a little thank-you to everyone who has supported the Music Alliance Pact.
