I’ll be back at some point and will post the odd bit here and there, but updates are going to get scarce for a while around here.
From 2000-2005 it seemed like every netlabel that was popping up was putting out at least one, really killer, free album every few months. Has anyone else noticed that the days of the great netlabel seem to be over?
There are still a few shining lights out there, but it seems like when Fukkgod Let’s Create went away (in their familiar form at least), a lot of other netlabels disappeared as well, or started putting out sub-par material. Autoplate is no longer putting out new stuff, and the rest of Thinner has gone the route of paid downloads. Monotonik is still going strong, but I haven’t heard anything vibrant out of that camp in at least two years, not since Bliss’ “Hello Brain Goodbye Heart”. No Type offers fewer and fewer releases overall every year, and sub-labels Sine Fiction (a netlabel project that could be amazing) and Nishi haven’t had any new releases since 2007.
So what’s going on out there? Am I just not finding the good shit on Google anymore or have things really become that stale?
I’ll write more about this soon. I just wanted to get this initial part down here first.
Okay, so the point of that little rant?
I am going to delve deep into the netlabel land again and find some of the good stuff.
But it seems like everyone I know who went to art school was never taught how to make money from their art. I’m not saying its good or bad, I’m just saying it seems like by now art schools should teach artists how to make money if they can’ t figure it out on their own. Its kind of a fine line I suppose.
I don’t make money from making music, but I still do it of course. I never went to music school either and it seems like some people who did go to music school are worse off than I am and they have a B.A..
In a round-a-bout way it kind of makes me think that I’d be happy teaching skills at a trade school, instead of producing art for car and travel companies.
