Rdio, Spotify, Bandcamp, QRD, Upcoming Releases, Etc.

So as a lot of you know I have super mixed feelings about free streaming of music.  I totally understand it is awesome for the consumer.  It’s convenient & easy.  But of course it also means not a lot of …

  1. So I’m thinking about launching a digital subscription series, here are a couple proposals I’ve come up with:
    5 in 5 – get the next 15 EPs for just $10
    Albums – get the next ten albums & receive all EPs released in interim free for $50.

Sun, Sequential Underground, Goddakk, Cyberpunk Apocalypse, Dream

Here’s a gif I made from taking a bunch of photos through pieces of broken glass.

So I’m trying to be upbeat.  Hence the photo above.  A couple rough days trying to work with distros.  Going to be re-working things …

    whooooa! why didnt you tell me the video was up?? bummer about the lack of blood – i will never get to see it!!! *PROUD*

    • Without the blood, the video doesn’t really make a lot of sense for me. I mean, I essentially wrote that comic for the exclusive purpose of spitting blood at a reading. It reads to seriously as it is for me.

Just a bunch of things happening.

So I’ve been pretty busy this past week trying to get some headway on the promotion for the new Electric Bird Noise record.  Here’s a pretty in depth interview he did about the album.

I also managed to help …

Droneuary, Goddakk, 5 in 5, Dreams

    CJBoyd’s argument is a flawed. Nobody sneaks in to sniff his farts nor do they pitch in to buy him bean burritos.

    He isn’t entitled to money to create music, however neither is someone entitled to hear/listen/own/download any of the music he created which is more the issue I think than the fact that a musician feels like a public is obligated to give him money to do so. It’s more that the public feels like it’s their right to hear the music and not the artist’s right to expect some token of gratitude in return.

    I’m not willing to pay for a new Guns n Roses but then i don’t think i really should be able to have the songs for free either. Not really anything to do with a musician’s entitlement any moreso than Charmin expects something in return if i decide to wipe my arse with their product. The worth of music, the practice of commerce those are the topics at play not a musician’s self-worth or ego, those exist independently of the issue.

    • Yeah, there’s definitely a problem with people feeling entitled to free everything here in the first world. & at times it seems like not only do people feel like they should have free music, but should be paid to do the artist the favor of listening to it. Which is perhaps related to the fact that now that everyone is a musician the quality of music has lowered to the point where maybe we should get paid to listen to some of it.

  2. I think there’s a disconnect between consumers of music and makers of music.

    The consumer doesn’t consider all the mundane financial and logistical details of what it takes to get that music to their ears.

    Music costs money to make. Especially music recorded in studios with all the costs that entails.

    Your average listener would never have reason to think about tracking, travel, mixing or mastering costs. Nor should they. They just download and (hopefully) appreciate the result.

    For an artist, posting music as a youtube video or in any other myriad ways available now online costs basically nothing. It’s possible to make and distribute music more or less for free this way now.

    What we’re going to lose though, is music that cost any time and money to make.

    There won’t be a new Black Sabbath, Cure, Bowie, Joy Division, MBV, Neil Young, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Velvets, etc.

    These are all musics that cannot be made, much less performed, by some dude sitting alone at a computer.

    Whether or not that’s a good or bad thing is up to you I guess.

    Anyway, this guy has some good points:

  3. That Collateral Damage series in The Wire is really good. One of the thing that has always been funny to me about The Wire is probably 95% of the musicians they cover don’t sell as many units as the magazine does. Maybe that’s true of Rolling Stone too when I think about it.

Sarah June, Clang Quartet, Star, Goddakk, & a Dream

So it seems like things might be going Silber’s way on the Sarah June front.  She’s a finalist for a contest as “up & coming artist to watch” for the Grammys.  She’s got a brand new interview up at Culturespill

    I knew about the Hayman thing but never got around to actually listening. Til today, maybe i should review it for the Finally çhecking it out blog but watching the videos makes me think somebody should hire him to write songs for Sesame Street. Also…if you haven’t maybe check out his Protons and Neutrons video.

Overworked & under nourished

Okay, so I’m starting to realize I’m over extended on the work I need to do, so the blog may be slowed down from indepth entries for a little while. If you need a blogging fix, there’s a good one …
