Art for art’s sake. (A pun? No, no – a play on words.)

Gillian Welch weighs in on the current state of music distribution. (And yes, I am aware of the irony of posting a free version of this song.)

    "That we're gonna do it anyway, even if it doesn't pay."

    Thanks to digital music (all legal, in my case), I've easily bought far more music over the last 5 years that the previous 15 combined.

  2. Matthew Lickona says

    But was it Gillian Welch music?

  3. notrelatedtoted says

    Matter of fact, yes…..and 2 of the 4 were bought online! And I can honestly say that I would have never really discovered her music, were it not for the interwebs. Sure, I learned about her through Oh Brother Where art Thou, but that was, what, one song?

    My days of buying a cd (or a tape, remember those?) based on one song are long behind me.

  4. Hung out with her one night when i was in college, after a show. Amazing 10 minutes in my life….

    Yes, I still talk about this.
