Archived: Shmat's Reviews
!!!Please Read!!! There will be no NEW reviews at Shmat Records

But to clarify, the Shmat is basically splitting the label stuff from the review/feature side of Shmat. It has become too difficult to manage the two sides within one site. All new reviews will appear on the Shmat sister site: Palebear.com

Please note: The Shmat IS still accepting CDs and Records for review, and you can continue to send material to the exact same address as before on the Contact Page. Everything sent to this address will be received by Palebear staff and will have a chance at a review.

If you are a band or label who has an existing review currently on Shmat, there is no need to change your link. It will continue to function and will not be moved physically to the Palebear site. The Shmat is going to keep everything archived here.
