I had never heard of Oink, but apparently it was a Bittorrent-fueled haven for file-sharing audiophiles and DJ /rupture gives a run-down about what Oink's existence should be teaching us all about the future of the music industry (or lack thereof).
It's especially interesting to see Rupture's perspective as both a music fan AND someone trying to make a living from creating and selling music.
The Signal: EP034 - Music arranged sequentially for the only sensory organ we can't easily disengage from stimulus. Here for a limited time. Tracklist in the id3 tags. Notes behind the cut.
Are there any new listeners out there who really need the full run down? I think most of you know the deal. It's an eclectic grab bag of stuff.
Continuing our theme, why not check out thirteen different versions of the drifting, dreamy guitar instrumental "Sleep Walk"?
The name of the post is "Six Versions of the Perfect Tune."
The tune? "Heartbeats" by The Knife.
Hard to argue with that one.
Oh yeah... there's a new Beirut album out there that I have to pick up.
Enjoy some video of Beirut playing... it looks like in someone's back yard. Brilliant.
It looks like maybe there's a video for each track here. Though I'm not going to look myself, as I want to experience the album first. But you go ahead.
