How musicians cope with the paradigm shift
As adored readers may have notice, I keep looking into how musicians cope with the paradigm shift. Other times, I simply get sucked into a good story by something astonishing I haven’t yet heard about.
So yes, I noticed the shift on the so reliable, illustration art based Decemberist site, when it radically changed from being centered around what Peteski would call “I’ve got an art blog”. They even had a very involved huge following supplying them with Decemberist art doodles, album cover art, all amazing and well done!
Suddently the site shifted from user side content to a commercial merchandise shop type story. I trust, most everyone understood that the Decemberists had come to understand, that they can’t serve their audience if they fail to support the band members with some security.
