@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka i know a lot of bands/musicians went to shit like patreon/bandcamp subscriptions but i'm sure it's still a drop in the bucket 03:51:15
@_discord_323578693328830465:t2bot.ioSynergyAddict Maybe the modern landscape for musicians is grimmer than I realized 03:52:01
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka wow there's a lot going on on this cfcf record 03:54:51
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka random pop-punk song in the middle, had to check and make sure i hadn't accidentally hit the end or something 03:55:28
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka i think the biggest part of things being grim is just the fact that streaming services are so ubiquitous 03:57:23
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka and you're just literally making nothing at all off them if you're a smaller band 03:57:46
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka so yeah bands basically have to eat that because if you're not on streaming you don't exist 03:58:09
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka * so yeah bands basically have to eat that because if you're not on streaming you don't exist 03:58:14
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka and have to monetize through other means which yeah just doesn't exist during corona times 03:59:01
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka apparently i was wrong about the bands themselves being the ones pushing records back though 03:59:20
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka >Ultimate Success Today was originally slated to drop in late May, but as the coronavirus forced most businesses to close, the label made the call to postpone the release until July. “At the time I was quite pissed off.” Casey says. “But they really expressed the point that, as a band, we sell a lot of records, like actual records — we’re not much of a streaming band. So they were actually kind of optimistic where they thought if they pushed it to July that record stores could actually be opened, and people will buy the record, which I guess now seems like it will be true in some capacity.” 03:59:37
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka re: the protomartyr record from last year, there were a few other records i was thinking of that did this as well but i guess you can assume something similar 04:00:36
@_discord_323578693328830465:t2bot.ioSynergyAddict Yeah I figure it would be labels 04:05:22
@_discord_323578693328830465:t2bot.ioSynergyAddict Fair enough 04:05:39
@_discord_323578693328830465:t2bot.ioSynergyAddict Hope protomartyr still exists 04:05:52
@_discord_421142649307922432:t2bot.ioArtieLaing thats strange 04:11:45
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka yeah i dont really get the reasoning either 04:14:47
@_discord_561669773985972264:t2bot.ioekka a huge chunk of record sales are done online at this point 04:15:05
@_discord_421142649307922432:t2bot.ioArtieLaing yeah 04:15:51
@_discord_421142649307922432:t2bot.ioArtieLaing i get there's a resurgence in vinyl sales 04:16:01
@_discord_421142649307922432:t2bot.ioArtieLaing but EVERY band is a streaming band 04:16:12
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks im glad you all like the cfcf record, its nice but it sorta misses the mark on a lot of things i thought it would go for 04:32:27
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks he sorta 3/4ths asses the late 90s early 00s electronica chic angle 04:32:44
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks music overall rn is so strange, its so corporate and the only way youll even get some gas money from it is if you play along and sell out hard 04:33:42
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks but youll get nearly no push back from selling out to a point of grossness because were cucked 04:33:59
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks socially 04:34:03
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks also the demands and trends are surreal 04:34:53
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks songs that dont go over 2 minutes, and are comprised of like just a hook 04:35:18
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks also all this at the cusp of new microgenre waves and people cashing on in it 04:37:23
@_discord_237012885685927937:t2bot.ioFroks * also all this at the cusp of new microgenre waves and people cashing on in it 04:37:41
