We have reached the purpose the place even the lower than good concepts of years previous are being mined for nostalgia. No, I am not speaking about acid washed denim’s resurgence (ugh, why?), however that of derided music mediums just like the MiniDisc and eight-monitor. Subsequent month, British musician and producer Trevor Jackson’s experimenting with Format, an album spanning 12 totally different err… codecs, every with one music per bodily object. Which means, the discharge goes to be unfold throughout three sizes of vinyl (12, 10 and seven-inch), CD and mini CD, reel-to-reel, USB, cassette, VHS, MiniDisc, DAT and eight-monitor. It is not precisely sensible, nevertheless it represents one other method that artists are increasing past a field-normal MP3 obtain to get their music out to followers. Format‘s not fairly probably the most outlandish instance we have seen, OK Go’s DNA album nonetheless holds that title, however it’s nonetheless fairly cool if you cease to consider it. How’s that?
