    As the 90s came to a close, the business of music began to change profoundly. New technology allowed artists to record and produce their own music and music videos, and the internet became a free-for-all distribution platform for musicians to promote themselves to audiences across the world. The result was an influx of artists onto the cultural scene, and audiences were left wondering how to sort through them all. In this episode we discuss these massive changes, and reveal how music blogs and websites have arisen as the new arbiters of quality. Featuring: Jon Cohen, Co-Founder, FADER Label Ryan Dombal, Senior Editor, Pitchfork Blake Whitman, VP of Creative Development, Vimeo Anthony Volodkin, Founder, Hype Machine Music by: Flex Blur: http://soundcloud.com/flex-blur Mindthings: http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/mindthings Dub Terminator: http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/DUB_TERMINATOR Nestor Gonzalez: http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/Nestor_Gonzalez Special Location thanks to Converse Rubber Tracks Studio Artists from Music Video Section: Rihanna - We Found Love - http://vimeo.com/33123323 Miss Eaves - Diva Pop - http://vimeo.com/34415367 My First Earthquake - We Float - http://vimeo.com/31941995 Moullinex - Catalina - http://vimeo.com/19723907 Sleigh Bells - Riot Rhythm - http://vimeo.com/16668477 Keep The Heat Morning Teleportation - Expanding Anyway - http://vimeo.com/14304059 Da Silva - Les Stations Balnearies - http://vimeo.com/33569324 Goose - Synrise - http://vimeo.com/20913850 Tim and Puma Mimi - Perspective - http://vimeo.com/11742651 DYE - Fantasy - http://vimeo.com/30798517 Dan Wholey - Amateur Rocketry - http://vimeo.com/29672263 Health - We Are Water - http://vimeo.com/10818338 Colours - Colourfornia - http://vimeo.com/26906724 Dancing Pigeons - Ritalin - http://vimeo.com/13639493 The Naked And Famous - The Sun - http://vimeo.com/27790801 The Limousines - http://vimeo.com/18665622 Flying Lotus - Kill Your Co-Workers - http://vimeo.com/15568767 Follow Off Book: Twitter: @pbsoffbook Tumblr: http://pbsarts.tumblr.com/ Produced by Kornhaber Brown: http://www.kornhaberbrown.com

                While shipping the shirts we figured to document what it all looked like. Hopefully, you already got yours, but if not, then watch this! During the process we also missed a Battles show here in NY, so we knew just the track to pick.
