Prince & Place

quote [ Listening to Prince, we are immersed in the soundscape of Minneapolis ? a musical geography shaped by racism, class inequality, sexuality, migration, habitation, and displacement. ]

?It?s unmanageable?: How the vinyl industry reached breaking point

quote [ Every time a new record is pressed, a plate must be changed. Therefore, it makes economic sense for plants to prioritise major label orders, which tend to be large quantities of the same record, compared with an indie order, which may require several plate changes before a run is complete. ]

Oh well, this looks worse than last time. Buy CDs instead?

An Interview with Will Oldham

quote [ Propaganda can be gently persistent. Don?t we listen to certain musics again and again because there is something about that music that we want to integrate more completely into ourselves? ]

Deep interview in a hipster mag ? good albums.

Looking Back At 20 Years of Rez and Synesthesia (2001 - 2021)

quote [ It's something I've played cross-legged on the floor of my old basement flat in Brighton, taking respite from a heavy-hitting day-trip and rushing up when Adam Freeland's Fear properly drops. I played it on Xbox 360 with a couple of extra controllers stuffed down the back of my shirt for the full sensory experience. ]

Interview feature from the creator's studio found via some Eurogamer article. Interesting to see how much this was driven by techno culture.

Steele probably knows about the game, right?

The Invisible Man: Hermon Hitson Might Be the Greatest Guitar Player You?ve Never Heard Of

quote [ ?That?s my song,? Hermon says today. ?Jimi heard it, and he would go to the studio with me [?]. He [Hendrix] didn?t never play no lead on nothing of mine. And he didn?t sing on nothing of mine. In fact, back then he thought he couldn?t sing. We had to keep pushing him: ?Man, you can sing. Man, just sing like you. People going to love you for you, man.?? ]
