You don’t have to hold your ear to the radio to hear a new song, anymore.
The days of pay-per-play and “hit new single” are over. Now, artists are pushing their new songs out to the public, hitting them in their own homes, via Spotify.
Who is a perfect example of a band who is disseminating their music humbly through the net? Pg.lost.
You won’t see ads extolling the new album. There are no bells and whistles. Their label, Pelagic Records, is even selling the album for 7€ ($7.81) which is unheardof. These guys aren’t looking for celebrity, and yet they consistently make an impact on the lives of their devout fans.
They released Ikaros on Aug. 30, then Off the Beaten Path on Sept. 7. These little teasers gave us insight into the new album, showing fans that pg.lost still has their fingers in developing hour-long story arcs of auditory construction that send us on imaginary adventures.
Is there a better band to listen to when you’re playing that one RPG that you revisit every year, ritualisitcally?
Pg.lost just released their new album, Versus and you can listen to it on Spotify. Of course, no local radio station is going to play lyric-less prog rock, so you’d be hard-pressed to find this tune anywhere, but online.
Listen to Versus, by pg.lost, on Spotify and add a little whimsy to your workday.
