Breezy and fuuma pretty much got it.  A traditional 'band' will do a release like this: album announcement > (occasionally) demo/EP > album release.  You get the whole thing at once.  The electronic music scene is moving much too fast for that model to work right now; on an incredibly aggressive schedule you could maybe record enough tracks for an album in a year, which is enough time for the de rigueur subgenre of the moment to shift out from under you and half the album to sound out-of-date.  So most songs are either a free single, or packaged in an EP with 2-4 originals and some remixes by other artists.  When artists do a full-length album, which is rare, they pick the 2-4 'hits' from the album and release them in EPs months in advance, so by the time the full album drops you're already sick of the good stuff on it.  Also, music discovery is usually done through soundcloud/BBC radio/Sirius etc mixes by other artists, rather than handed down from Pitchfork et al, which means people are more often looking for individual tracks, rather than packages (albums).

 

I was just remarking that I hadn't listened to an album end-to-end in ages.

So, ever since I posted my imgur album on reddit's menswear section, it somehow managed to collect over 40,000 views. Crazy. That place might be a stultifying cesspit, but it gets mad volume.

It's 98F, and for some reason I started thinking about knitwear already. I'm thinking of trying Howlin' by Morrison this AW.

I know, right? What a fucking dick!

Yeah man, screw compassion. That shit's weak. foo.gif
post #61752 of 97747
how is that compassion? i'd be compassionate if something happened to synth (god forbid), but.. nothing did. i just don't understand the logical progression from 'he hasn't posted on sf for a few days' = 'something horrible, horrible happened!'
post #61753 of 97747
it doesn't matter because we're all doomed anyway
post #61754 of 97747
I dunno man, it's just kind of easy and mean to call someone out for "caring too much," or something. And, unless I'm conveniently forgetting something, I don't remember reading any fever-pitch posts from mikey about the general welfare of another user. I just don't see how it's worth being snarky about.

Holy shit, are you me? uhoh.gif

I'd be interested to know how you came across the bolded works; I've never met anyone IRL who've read these, especially the Roussel. (I did get into an argument w/ Blake Butler about Infinite Jest once, on his web site. That was cool. laugh.gif )

Great list. Going to seek out the ones I haven't read.
