Celebration Give It Away

...according to reports from Gorilla vs. Bear, Baltimore trio Celebration have boldly moved into the future of the music "industry", announcing a direct release approach that may finally eliminate unnecessary barriers between artist and audience. The band's decision to forego the traditional label release routine (with 4AD in their case) stands as further evidence of a burgeoning reformation. From Celebration's website:

We as Celebration, have felt the continual growth of web culture's need for barrier-free exchange. We also feel that the traditional methods of releasing music have put too much distance between us...Our plan and experiment is to post new songs monthly, as we create and record them. Under the creative commons attribution non-commercial share alike license, all of our new music will be free to download on our new website. When we have enough music for an album, we will release it on vinyl for those who want to have something to hold. As artists we can only stand for our music, our art, our creation. So here it is--laid bare.

what the hell is this blog anymore? a cheerleader for (mostly) mediocre indie acts? the fucking writeups on here read like something you'd read on a placard at Best Buy in their "Hear it First" section.

be what you are. there's already a website called STEREOGUM, and dozens of others...doing this kind of thing better.

the buddha den was much better when it looked at the rich and diverse dayton music scene with the same seriousness and attention that scenes in bigger and/or more recognized cities get.

now it sucks. perpetual cheerleading for legions of junior varsity teams.

maybe kyle has something bigger in mind, like exposing dayton bands to others while exposing out of town bands to us, i think it's a good trade.

start your own damn blog, are you part of the problem or part of the solution?

the only person that can write a blog about YOUR tastes is YOU...

there are a lot more bands doing things and now dayton info is just buried in between pitchfork re-posts. you can do whatever you want with this site, but it was cooler when it was just dayton related.

It's reasonable to include other music you're interested in, but I feel like it's making your site a little un-navagable.

I do feel like your Dayton postings should take precedence over non-local things, so maybe it would be a good idea to have something like a 'read more' button after the photo or first sentence that takes you to the full story, only for non-local news.

Your efforts are a great resource, but it's become a bit noisy with all the other posts.
