Title
Founder of Infectious Magazine & Muddy Paw Public Relations
Bio
Angela Mastrogiacomo is the founder and CEO of Muddy Paw Public Relations and Infectious Magazine. Both avenues allow for her intense love of the emerging artist to shine—at Infectious this comes through in their many guest blogs and features, while at Muddy Paw, she works to bridge the gap between artists and publications, incorporating heavy personal outreach with traditional press releases for a strategy that has seen her artists placements on Noisey, Idobi, Substream, New Noise, A Music Blog, Yea?, and many more. Artists she's worked with at Muddy Paw have gone on to play festivals like So What?!, Warped Tour, and open for nationally recognized acts, as well as secure licensing placements.

When she isn't working, she can most often be found hanging in the park with her dog, or curling up with a good book and some hot tea. (And probably a cupcake or two.)

Firebrick by S.O.S

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I love the message and symbolism behind this song! I would love to work together on this—it's really clear the passion behind it, and I think it's incredibly catchy and well done.

Really love the storyline and creativity of the brand and that it's so well conveyed through this music video. That's such a rarity in today's music scene, but I can tell you guys have really thought it through.

I'm really enjoying the music as well—super catchy, well polished, easy to get into, and incredibly accessible. I also think the video tells an intriguing story to support the track. 

I would love to work together on this!

Heart Beats by The Twelve AM

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Really enjoying this! It feels really accessible—definitely pretty easy to get into and have on in the background, but I can also see getting pretty into it after a few listens and dancing along to it. Would love to work together on promoting this, let's touch base for sure!

Memories by Asymmetrical

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Really enjoying the pop-punk vibe of this, and it's obviously incredibly reminiscent of Blink-182 and that era of bands, but something about the vocals is a little off for me—I can't quite pinpoint it, but I think it's that it sounds a little TOO much like it's trying to sound like Blink-182 and I'd like to see a bit more of your own uniqueness there. I think there's a lot of potential here!

Someone by Plastic Farm

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I love this! It's right up my alley in terms of sound, and I think it has a really dreamy, ethereal vibe that's super easy to latch onto and get lost in. Would love to work together to promote this.

Although the first 20 seconds or so were a little slow for me, I thought the creativity of the rocks (once I saw where it was going) and the way it carries through the video is really clever, especially with even including the music notes.

That said, it's still a little bit slow for me and the shaky camera and poor lighting makes it a little bit hard for me to get into as much as I'd like. It's a creative idea though!

What You Breathe by Cyrano Grier

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really like this! I wouldn't say it's something I normally gravitate to, but there's no doubt it's super catchy, and definitely a throwback to my early days of Warped Tour and that overall scene. I also love that there's going to be inclusion of a cartoon, clothes, and ice cream. It sounds like your branding is tight and the way you're spreading your message is diverse—would love to learn more!

The music and vocals feel a little out of sync to me—it seems the vocals should be a little softer, but I have to say the instrumentals are beautiful. It creates a really strong, emotional response, which I just love.

UNBREAKABLE by Rose Dickeson

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I love the melody on this, especially around the 2 minute mark, it's really powerful. But something production wise on the vocals sounds off. It just isn't syncing up for me, it sounds a little too low for the music, and slightly too unpolished. I think there's lots of potential here though.

First Time by The Como Brothers

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really like this! The music itself is beautiful, and the video is really captivating. Even though the song itself could easily be a love song, (which it sounds like it was) you guys gave it new meaning with the incorporation of the home videos and made it personal by having it be videos of you both. The story behind this is really beautiful too. Happy to work together on a feature and promote!

Winter (feat. Tash James) by James Myhill

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Really interesting and unique sound! I'm not able to do Spotify placement for this song, but please do let me know if you'd like to feature the song via my blog.

Micah Elloh submitted media.

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Super catchy! Lots of energy, very accessible—I'd love to work together! Also a big fan of this single art. It's simple, but the branding is clear, and the color stripe across your face adds an extra dynamic. It's honestly a big part of why I chose to hit play, is how intriguing it is.

This isn't the style of music we cover so unfortunatly I have to pass on coverage but I have to say I love the video! The scenery is gorgeous and I just love the positivity and energy of the song.

THE NOTHING HERE LYRIC VIDEO by BRUTUS BEGINS

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really love this track! It's incredibly catchy, and the dancers in the video keep it engaging enough to watch. I'm not super into the font/colors of the lyrics, but I do appreciate the contrast to the black and white video. Like I said though, the track itself is super catchy and I'd love to work with it!

BETTER OFF (OFFICIAL) by WILDER DAZE

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really enjoyed this video! The song itself is really intriguing, and the accompanying video just makes it all the more captivating. Production wise it's really well done, and I love the storyline. 

Emily Ronna submitted media.

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really enjoyed this! Edgy, captivating vocals, and I love the energy of the music. Production wise, something sounds slightly off (maybe the blending of the vocals and music?) but honestly, the whole track is super catchy so it's not a huge hinderance. I also love videos with storylines, so this one is naturally engaging for me.

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Super catchy! I love this, it's right up my alley. I actually thought for a second that I was listening to my Spotify Discover Weekly, because this is so close to what I normally listen to. Would love to work together to promote this!

Jealous by Natalie Bancroft

The Gift by Victims of the New Math

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really appreciate the rawness of this track. I think personally, an album of this quality would end up being too much for me, but in this song, with the lyrics as they are, I think the quality and rawness work.

ART CAMP by TOPICS

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I love this! Everything about the video and the music is super quirky, and it's just so incredibly catchy and loveable. I'd love to feature it on Infectious and talk about doing PR for the March release!

Paranoid (Official Video) by Madison Ryan

Angela Mastrogiacomo

The song itself is really catchy (though I'm not a fan of the autotune—I don't think you need it!) And I love the video. It was a smart choice to put it in black and white, and for as simple a concept as it is, it's really compelling to watch, and it fits the mood of the song really well. 

Stephanie Lima submitted media.

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I like this! I like the moodiness of both the song, and the video, it's well matched. I'm also a sucker for a video with a plot, which makes this one all the better. The music itself reminds me of an older, more low-key CKY, so I definitely dig it!

Blake Preston - "Gone" by Blake Preston

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really like this! It's catchy and I love how fun the music video is. Lots of personality and it makes it all the more captivating. I love that it has a story line, and that you get to know all these characters through the few minutes of the video.  Let's set something up!

Riley Jensen submitted media.

Angela Mastrogiacomo

I really liked this! It's definitely the kind of music I can get into. Super catchy! I also love your strategy of releasing a new song every month, as a way to presumably keep fans engaged and interacting.

Really catchy! Lots of energy, the artwork really matches the personality of the song, and it grabs you right away. Really like this!

Top Of My Lungs by DATABOY

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Pleasantly surprised by this! I wasn't sure what to expect with the artwork and artist name (both seemed to indicate different things to me) but the music is right up my alley. Lots of energy, super catchy. It does feel a little long (I think around the 3.5 minute part is when I started to feel like it should be wrapping up), but that's really the only constructive piece of criticism I have. Great song!

Wandering (Radio Edit) by Laini and the Wildfire

Angela Mastrogiacomo

This is really beautiful! You have a wonderful voice, and this song is a great demonstration of it. Lots of strength, and completely entrancing. I can definitely see this reaching a lot of people.

I'd love to set something up with you—we can go over the details in the review message. :)

Even by The Pulltops

Angela Mastrogiacomo

There's something really intriguing about this. I still feel that same album rock vibe to this song as I did the other one you submitted, but I do personaly like this one a bit more. (I still wouldn't describe it as power pop though).

Are You Really Here by Across The Board

Angela Mastrogiacomo

You have a really beautiful voice, and I really appreciate the storyline and grittiness of the video. (I do have an affinity for abandoned buildings though!) Let's connect when you do your review, I'll shoot over my email, and we can see about working together.

Money by Blake Preston

Angela Mastrogiacomo

Really compelling video! I love how fast paced it is with all the images, and how each one is so different, and yet they all seem to fit togehter really well. Honestly, I'm not sure that I would have listened to this song on my own, or just as audio, but with the video, I really wanted to keep watching, so I think that says a lot. It adds a lot of value.

I Revenge by MXMS

I love this! I hear a lot of Lorde influence in this. It's light, airy, and yet so full of deep emotion and substance. It's hard not to get caught up in it. Very beautiful.

I like this, I enjoyed listening and would probably listen again, but nothing about it is screaming unique or totally captivating to me.
