Best thing to do is make a bandcamp page, set it up as an album via preorder, put 1 banging track up (for listen only) then promote the crap out of it. Get people excited to anticipate the full length (including potential indie labels).

I was doing underground hip hop for last 10 years with decent success, just last year got into synths, and started doing my alias "extra garlic" thing. Havnt really promoted it much, but I was quick to realize how diverse, spread out, and tough it is to get known in electronic vs other genres. But I do think doing it yourself is the way to go. If you want good honest critique of your music before you release too, got to soundout.com for like $30 you get like 100 to review your song and give you feedback, and see how its taken by the masses.
