No Smoking Media is an NYC-based music and culture blog, primarily covering new independent and DIY music releases. Established in 2014, No Smoking was founded as a response to negativity in music journalism – we seek only to share and promote the best new music. We don’t use numerical ratings for album reviews: you can read our ‘art criticism’ philosophy here. We curate and book some pretty dope live music events at different spaces in the city, and are currently working on a print zine.
We also have photography, interviews, poetry, art thinkpieces, and the occasional food review.
You can submit your music to us here.
