New York's annual CMJ Music Marathon is a pretty big deal for musicians trying to break through to a wider audience. Artists from all over the country and beyond head to NYC hoping successful performances will get them noticed in a big way, and this year Tumblr is providing a helping hand by pairing music bloggers with performers to document their journeys. A few FADER favorites have found their way into the mix, including Ryn Weaver (pictured above) who'll play FADER Fort NYC this Saturday, Montreal indie-pop band TOPS, and GEN F graduates Adult Jazz.

Here's the full list of bands along with the bloggers that'll be tracking their CMJ adventures, so follow them on Tumblr for exclusive insights, interviews and photos:
