The return of our still untitled music podcast. This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions and is co-hosted by Rob Levy, Tuffley and myself. Let us know what you think.
This episode’s central topic is “The State of the Industry.” Within you will find the discussion of self-titled albums, music blogs going bye-bye, the importance of doing backups, obligatory mentions of Beach House and Them Crooked Vultures, how to release albums in the 21st Century, major labels vs. indies, Labels That Kill, Ticketmaster and LiveNation and the potential for evil (or good), live music (in general and why), radio, MTV, Kurt Loder as the harbinger of doom, the fate of Abbey Road Studios* and more.
*NOTE: We recorded this this past Sunday, and within forty-eight hours, guess what happened.[audio:http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/www.needcoffee.com/podcasts/untitledmusic022410.mp3]
