and people are still releasing plastic cased cds. They still have pr companies that are producing promotional copies and sending them out to magazines, even gay ones. These cds are perused by, and occasionally listened to, by music/arts editors and then ceremoniously dumped into a big brown box in the kitchen. It certainly passes the time when the kettle is boiling to have a little flick through. Yesterday I found Matt & Kim. The are completely amazing for having brilliant lo-fi keyboard pop brilliance. They are totally awful for having a singer that sounds like sum41+blink182.
