uTopian TurtleTop, on being shipwrecked:
If I were shipwrecked and abandoned, I would be freaking out. Alternating between out-wild panic and inconsolable tears. It’s hard to know what music would console, sitting here in my living room, staying up too late, listening to Lester Young, and contemplating what single album, were I to find myself there, would be the most likely to inspire the response, “Oh, I’m glad that this is the CD that I had in my coat pocket when I jumped into the lifeboat, and fucking-A, here’s a working CD player with solar cell batteries!” It’s impossible to know.
The Existence Machine, on Tom Breihan's inability to believe this exists:
I like the phrase. I think we get so caught up in evaluation and assessment and moving on to the next big thing (or the next small thing) that we too rarely stop to consider how amazing artistic creation is.
JS: The mission of Catbird Record's currently seems to be this: Produce very limited edition runs, often handmade, of very good music. That said, what happens when you take the obsession with bright lights and huge profits out of a record label?
RC: ...the short answer? As a business model: it sucks. As a creative outlet: it rules.
