Back in olden days of yore, artists released 45s of their latest songs, and if they were good or if certain people got paid those songs got played on the radio and became hit singles. After releasing a few singles, the record company would compile those singles into an album. The advent of online digital technology has eroded the album concept, at least with popular music.
Nowadays, kids download or stream the songs they want, and place them into playlists with other singles. I like the idea of bands, especially local bands, releasing two- or three-song singles every few months.
It gives me a reason to go see them again and again rather than seeing the same band play the same material for a full year between albums, choosing to hold back on the new stuff until they get into the studio again. Vinyl singles give fans something they can collect, or they can wait and see if the songs will be included on a future album, just like they did it in the old days.

Is that a wrought-iron skillet, Mr. Omaha 4-piece rock band Pro Magnum released a new 3-song 7-inch opus earlier this month designed to fry your head off. This is some heavy shit, but its crazy melodic. The Arrows are in the middle of a lengthy U. You can pre-order the new album, which comes out Nov.
The band returns to The Holland tonight. Toward the end of the interview Oberst describes how Meltzer let him out of a multi-record contract with Grass when Commander Venus broke up, apparently because Conor reminded Meltzer of his son, who had recently passed Laura burhenn conor oberst dating nake.
