New Blog Coming 1/11/11

After nearly 5 years (2 w/ Kiwi Tapes + 3 with this blog) I think I have reached the point where I can say that the "full album" download blog concept has run it's course and it's time for something new. My goal has always been to provide rabid music fans with an outlet to find interesting music that may have otherwise gone unheard or unappreciated. Looking back I think it would be fair to criticize me for often doing things that were not in the best interest of the artist and moving forward I would like to operate with the creators in mind first and foremost. Without the artists we do not have any of this great music to enjoy and as a music fans we need to keep our sense of entitlement when it comes to freebies in check.

Details on the new blog will be coming soon. Regular posting will continue on this blog up until the end date.

Understand the reasoning, dude. Owe you a profound debt of gratitude for introducing me to so much amazing stuff (New Zealand indie, Jim Shepard, Siltbreeze... goddamn) and hope the new blog will continue to do so, in some manner. Best regards
