Over at NPR Music, there’s this excellent interview with Eliot Van Buskirk who writes the Listening Post blog for Wired.com.
He does a pretty good job at explaining the current state of the music business. He puts TuneCore in relation with iTune and CDBaby. He can’t go too deep about hip hop as he’s mostly a rock guy, but that’s OK. Highly recommended.
Speaking of the record industry, don’t miss next’s week MacBreak Weekly with special guess Pat Wilson, of Weezer. With fan Merlin Mann onboard and Alex Lindsay’s experience as an ex-Sony Music employee, things are bound to get interesting.
