PLAYLISTS: New Iowa Music on YouTube 2

Well, it was moving day for me yesterday, and unpacking day today. So even though I had this playlist ready early in the week, it's only coming out now!

We have one of new Iowa music playlist once again. This week, the new stuff up on YouTube!

If you're an Iowa artist or band, and have a YouTube channel, send me a link at!

We start off with an acoustic cover, then a string quartet cover, followed by some hip hop, piano boogie-woogie, Americana, and blues!

IOWA MUSIC SHOWCASE PODCAST - Episode 51: Iowa Hip-Hop and Rap 2 (and 3 episodes of the Iowa Block Radio rap podcast)

Well, we once again look at the hip-hop and rap music in Iowa.

There are other genres I haven't even covered yet, but the submissions are piling up, so here we are!

And if you want to hear more Iowa hip-hop and rap, don't forget about the podcast, Iowa Block Radio, that deals exclusively with hip-hop and rap from our fair state! You can find them at

They don't seem as active as they once were, but they got 105 episodes running from 1 to 3 hours, so there's plenty there to keep you busy. In fact, I'll embed the last three episodes on the bottom.

And just a gentle reminder that all of these were submissions, and you can send me your submissions at

OTHER SOURCES: An Iowa Noise Music Compilation

Although it doesn't have a big following, the noise music scene here is still strong. What the scene lacks in numbers, it makes up in dedication.

One of these days, I plan on doing a podcast episode on Iowa's more experimental music, including noise. But for now, I can give you this compilation put together by The Centipede Farm, an Iowa record label that has supported the noise scene for many years.

But in the meantime, here's a compilation put out by Centipede Farmer, who is well known to the noise and metal music scenes.
