I think it's only fair in a world where everything is at your finger tips that digital distribution is first and foremost but it can't be the end of the line. I think far too often people forget about the genuine "collectors" who enjoy having something physical. You can't win them all but I think you have to consider all of the current available well-consumed media formats and try and pick a broad enough spectrum.
What I'd personally like though is something much more personal at the recording level itself. I'm not just talking behind the scenes videos and blogs. I'm talking real-time, It would be cool to witness the recording process. Not just in small snippets but how a track is laid down and why it succeeds or fails.
I appreciate that music is Machine Head's art and agree that the decisions about what is or isn't going to be on the record ultimately belongs to you... but take me along for the ride man, show us how fun, frustrating, satisfying it really can be.
I realise it's not everyone's cup of tea but there's definitely people who would dig this intimacy.
I think Kickstarter and the like are a great idea for distributing and raising money for recordings but it always feels like people are selling themselves short by offering small incentives. I don't know if this works, it could just be me but if I'm contributing to something then I'm giving you my confidence you'll sign seal and deliver this fucker I don't need trinkets to keep me patient. Just make it about the music and show me where my dollars are going... Bonuses can be good for some but in the scheme of it, it feels like wasted money to me.
Anywho dude, it's your bbq. Keen to hear your thoughts hit me back.
