Release readers come from around the world
Over a period of time, we have counted the home countries of our readers (going by the loads of e-mails we've received, like contest applications). Not only does this reveal where our readers are located, but it also gives us an idea of where our type of music is popular.
Shouldn't the web statistics do the job, you may ask? Well, they can't give us an accurate picture, because we can only see the top domains like .com, .net, .nu alongside the country domains (like .de). A .com visitor can originate from anywhere.
Maybe it's high time to redraw the map for our music? We note that Eastern Europe is present all over the list, starting with the eighth position for Poland, eleventh for Russia and sixteenth for Romania. We are interestingly enough also quite popular in Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, Greece, Estonia and Indonesia. Ireland, Switzerland and Turkey, for instance, didn't make it to this top 50 list at all.
Throughout the years, we have heard from readers from almost all the countries in the world (except many of the tiniest ones, of course).
Feel free to mail us and tell us a bit about the musical scene in your territory.
