The News – 5 June 2010

Not too long ago, we made a number of big new announcements, one of which was the new release schedule.  Since we’ve gotten a number of questions about it, I thought I would make a post explaining the release schedule and what it means.

There will be new releases every single week, barring any unforeseen complications.  Each week has two release slots.  One slot is reserved for regular releases, and one slot is reserved for shorter releases as part of our Singles Club.  In addition, we will release a compilation every month.

This is not set in stone, of course.  Sometimes both release slots will be filled with full EPs/albums/splits/etc.  Sometimes we’ll only have one release during the week.  Some months may not have a compilation.  But regardless of these minor fluctuations, you can expect new music every week. You should also note that physical releases (we’ve got several planned) do not take up a release slot.

No on to what this means and why we’re doing it.  We currently have a very large queue of unreleased items that are scheduled to come out (around forty).  The downside to this is that artists and their listeners may have to wait as long as four or five months for their release to come out.  But the upside is that we can dedicate the time each release deserves.  Each release will get about the same amount of face time, and things won’t get buried so quickly.  This also means that we can provide a steady stream of content.  In the end, the wait will be worth it.

Artists: if you are submitting material or have a release planned, let us know as soon as possible, and be prepared to wait four or five months.  Take this opportunity to push yourself toward a goal, and let us know if you’d like to do an issue of the Singles Club in the meantime.

This next week: There might be some hiccups as John (that’s me) is moving from Norway to Wisconsin on the 10th.  Releases scheduled for the 8th, 10th and 15th might be affected, but if all goes to plan, Corey will be able to get those releases up on time.
