Samples of new Eno record up

Post by FORMAT » Sat Oct 16, 2010 10:08 am

There are now samples up at http://itunes.apple.com/de/preorder/sma ... d398420196.

Sounds much better than I expected from the first snippets at Soundcloud.

Joy!

gah, 30 second previews are the worst possible method of advertising a song.
For About 90% of genres it makes no sense at all, the only ones it really works for are Pop and Grindcore (Eg this)


Dear Everybodywithamusicsellingwebsite,
please use the better preview method : 'play 20 seconds then skip 10 seconds' . It's not hard to do, and you'll sell me more music.

You're right. But in this case, the samples were able to convince me that this is going to be great.

Not what I was expecting at all.

Interest: well & truly piqued.

he could have got away with a bit of his old-style 'singing' on that one. Would have been fun.

So this is on Warp eh? interesting

A bit of the 'Third Uncle' vibe:

I agree that an Eno vocal would be welcome.

Two more tracks up now.

I'm really glad I pre-ordered this, can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

What bugs me is that I won't have the 4 extra tracks, but that's hardly worth the extra for the vinyl edition.
And there still another bonus track on the iTunes.

I couldn't tell you the last time I got bonus tracks by any artist that were actually worth a shit.
