thanks for the support folks
digital is absolutely coming. we are working out specifics with the sweet people who orchestrate Commend Here. accessibility is super important to me for any music that i make. never will there be a release i am a part of that is exclusive only to those with specific means/time to snag it. today was the “hey look!” moment for announce, as well as the label sort of testing the waters i think, as this size run is standard for all the previous releases they did for the series.
@misc_frank if someone emails me and says they for whatever reason can’t afford my music, i will always send them a dl. what happens beyond that i have no control over, but in general it’s my belief that artists should get paid for what they make, as directly as is possible. in the case of this release, we are telling people that is it going to be digital so i think it’s fair to wait for that to eventually happen. if something is flat out unavailable/rare/out of print or astronomically high in price (like some mixtapes or old private press releases), i personally have downloaded from sharing sites if i couldn’t obtain any digital or physical copy of the music. but besides that i always buy music and really think we should normalize doing that. artists make such a small amount of money from record sales, and when you are a small scale artist, every one of those adds up and is the difference between a meal being paid for or not.
