Uploading to YouBandCloud is not the same thing as "releasing an album".

    To the OPs original question, here's one.

    Owning a guitar and being able to play it are not the same thing.

    i don't think it's a nowadays thing. just read albini's "the "problem with music" from 30 years ago. it was always a broken model for the vast majority. it only works for pushing top 40 sales numbers.

    the only people i personally know still releasing physical records on the regular are dance labels, and some of them albeit fairly successful are pretty much just breaking even. sure, there was a time where it was cheap to put CDs out and one could feasibly make some profit, but that was a brief moment in the grand scheme.

    playing music is not the same thing as playing music!

    but I really don't think it's quite as cut and dried as that.

    Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas won a whole mess of Grammys for recording and mastering in their house. Their album was released without any additional modification by anyone.
    In addition, stars like Billie and Bieber and many others got 100% of their promotion from posting home made YouTube videos. Sorry, that's the new world we live in.

    I'm feeling "micro-agressed" and I've only read the 1st page of posts.....

    I realize the OP was asking for cynical observations about pretentious blather concerning recordings, but here's one about live performance:

    Playing on one of the festival side stages at 9 a.m. is not the same thing as opening for the prime time headliner.

    No, you’re wrong about every part of that except for the mastering.

    If you’re talking about a record, it’s an lp.

    Why not make it sound and look just as good as the “official” records? What makes them “official” and yours not outside of your own insecurity?

    If you get into circuit bending you could make some really cool noise music with that, especially if you figure out how to use that tape recorder for loops of some kind.

    Punk rock/noise/metal/goth/industrial/garage/indie are all still putting out physical releases.

    The new blu anxxiety lp is great.

    Sure. But I feel for a lot of underground rock stuff mostly it’s either tape for the physical, or digital now...actual vinyl being like a “special” once in a while thing. They seem to be a lot more steadfast in the techno/house community.

    I guess I haven’t been posting enough lately. What in gawdsname gave the impression that anything I ever say here should be taken seriously?

    Way too many angry replies. But apparently I’m the hurt one. This isn’t the other guitar forum. Lighten up, Francis. We’re all good here.

    Good post, with a slight nit to pick - outside of Billie and Finneas, the albums were worked on by mixer Rob Kinelski and mastering engineer John Greenham. But you're 100% right that they were recorded and produced in Finneas' bedroom.
