Sam's thoughts on music industry, artists and more
Posted Thu Oct 23, 2014 11:56 am by Bert
EM News Here Sam Rosenthal's (Projekt Records) recent thoughts, ideas etc about the music industry, artists and releasing music:

"On Friday afternoon, I hung out with the people behind the electronic label Spotted Peccary Music. They release great CDs plus they're the company that serves up Projekt's 24/96k high res files.

We were sitting at picnic tables in the open-air back-porchy-like room of a typical Portland-styled drinking establishment. Wood-planked walls, beer signs over the steps to the bar, a food-cart belching scented smoke as it turned out Philly-styled Italian food. I'm painting a picture for you, a little setting of reality before this blog heads off and becomes cerebral. We're sitting there, drinking our what-have-yous, having a really great brainstorming session concerning many tangents in the music industry, including physical vs. digital, will people pay for music, and the new landscape for survival.

Howard looks up and asks a question, I begin to answer, but then go off topic and start talking about how fans interact with bands. In "the old days" (the mid '90s), Projekt could release an album from a band with no image (and a lot of mystery), mention it a few places, buy a few ads, send postcards and catalogs, and wham! We'd sell 2-3000 copies. People were itchin' to hear new music, and Projekt was a reputable source for interesting new acts.

But that's not how you get involved with music, these days, is it? Let's face it, "fans" can access most music for free, if they really want to. The old model of a label releasing a faceless band, you heading to a record store to buy their CD, and then hearing their music for the first time when you get the CD home... that's sort of over. What I find through my blogs, Facebook, and Kickstarter campaigns is that you want a connection to the artists you're excited about. Few bands can survive, reclusively hiding in their bedroom-studio-caves. Yes, maybe a few legacy bands can get by . . .

centrozoon - The Room of Plenty
Posted Wed Oct 22, 2014 7:08 pm by bewoest
New releases Pre-order and audio stream here:



centrozoon releases The Room of Plenty, a collection of recordings from their We Will Tongue You Tour 2011.

In the fall of 2011, after several years without live appearances, centrozoon embarked on a 11 date tour of Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Austria. Having never played live in this formation before, the band simply trusted their musical intuition and went into the first concert without any prior rehearsals. The final piece from that Berlin performance now also marks the finale of this album. centrozoon concerts, all composed in the moment, can go anywhere from hectic, percussion-driven, stop-and-go music to ambient soundscapes or twisted and distorted polyphony. The Room of Plenty represents some of those latter, more brooding creations across five nights.

The WWTY tour, which included several radio performances, also served as a launch platform for Bonestarter, the band's homemade crowd-funding campaign for their studio album, Boner. Launched late at night after a loud and powerful concert in Bielefeld (represented here with the first two tracks), the campaign ran on their website without the help of a dedicated platform, and helped finance the manufacturing of the album and the CD release of two separate mixes.

After numerous studio and live-in-the-studio releases, The Room of Plenty is centrozoon's first ever live album. Beautifully mixed by Marziano Fontana and mastered by Markus Reuter, it does convey some of the raw energy of the live concerts while being a complete work in its own rights.

ANODIZE October & Fall News
Posted Mon Oct 20, 2014 6:21 pm by ubikman
EM News ANODIZE / OCTOBER & FALL NEWS / The Pool, Emerald Web reissues, & more



Release date: 10.31.2014 / Preorders, samples & info: https://anodizesound.bandcamp.com/album/333-october

Autumn has finally revealed itself in a burst of colorful splendor around these parts, and here at Anodize HQ we're responding in kind with our own collection of equally vivid aural delicacies ripe for the picking.

In this, the 14th year of the millennium, the dissemination/distribution of music continues to wrestle with numerous artistic and economic dilemmas, offering no adequate exit out of the maze of its own bewildering pretzel (il)logic. The format wars (or, at the very least, skirmishes) wage on. CD vs. vinyl? Physical hard media vs. digital ether? In what form should music be released despite multimedia brainwashing and the endless parade of dis/misinformation?

For us, it's simple: we remain committed to the silver, factory-pressed CD and its attendant physicality. Beginning with the upcoming release by The Pool, all subsequent Anodize issues will be in newly designed six-panel digipaks, the better to augment each musician's varied sonic hues, tints, and textures.

To that end, it gives us great pleasure to kickoff the final quarter of 2014 with not only two timely reissues but a couple of new recordings by artists both forging reputations and building upon established ones.

One of a handful of recordings long cherished by those of us at Anodize, languishing for more than thirty years in relative obscurity, finally arrives on silver platter. 333+, by The Pool, aka Austin, Texas multi-instrumentalist Patrick Keel, trades on a brand of DIY applied rhythmic technology that realigns Bill Nelson, Manuel Gottsching, and John Foxx with contemporary artists making similarly-themed gestures. Originally released on Enigma Records in 1984, Keel's sparkling works presaged the following decade . . .

syndae - episode 275
Posted Fri Oct 17, 2014 10:00 pm by treibklang
EM News I know, I know, it's bits and beats again tonight, but I could not help myself for being on the road tomorrow on my way to E-Live. So no sleepy music, and a bunch of crazyness in there as well. The show goes straight off with trance-ish Vortex Elements presenting a Transmission. We then have Continuity by Cirqut. Of course, having some DaoLogic giving the Groove Command. And then we have the great Plus by Drehton. We surely are up for the lastest Weldroid pleaser with Silicate Garden. Fading out with Part of the Industry by well known Stockman.

Sound's fantastic on: http://www.syndae.de/episodes/631-episode-275

Yours, Stefan
