Indie Music Feedback is a free community that helps indie musicians to get valuable, constructive feedback to improve their songs.
You can join this community for free, without meeting any previous requirements. The main communication channel in Indie Music Feedback is the subreddit with the same name. Here, over 68,400 indie musicians from all over the world gather to give each other feedback on new tracks they release.
The rules are simple. To publish a song and get constructive feedback from others, you first need to contribute by giving feedback to at least 5 songs from other members of the community. Your feedback has to be useful, constructive, and at least three sentences long. To make sure all members comply, the subreddit works through a bot.

Lastly, don't forget to visit Indie Music Feedback's website. There, you will find a helpful blog, the community's Spotify playlist (which is updated every month with songs from members), interviews from the podcast, and the community's monthly zine.
