That quote came from an interesting interview that evolver.fm did with DIS's Sean Adams, entitled 'Legendary Music Blogger Sean Adams on ‘Slow Death of MP3 Blogging’'. But I didn't find out about the article until after I saw yvynyl's tumblr post saying this:
This is a great piece on somewhat of an over-played topic. Personally, I think we’re living in the Golden Age of music blogging. Sean has a lot of great points in this piece, and I don’t think he’s as negative as the title of the piece implies. But what’s so exciting about this is that we ARE seeing a whole new paradigm emerge, and that we’re all invited to play around in the space. Most innovative ideas win. It’s fun!
Personally, I think they both make valid points. We are in a golden age for making and discovering music… but that also has a cost (and I think we're all starting to realize it). Music has such a high turnover rate / short shelf life that it often feels like an album gets only about a week of attention before it becomes completely forgotten about (a week is probably being a bit generous… a day or two might be more accurate).
I think the tweet that Sean mentions in his interview sums things up quite aptly:
“Firsties Is Killing Music.”
I know it is something that I noticed it every since becoming a casual blogger. There is just such a daily churn of new music that it ends up burying all music.
