Mobtown Studios

It’s one thing to record, market, manufacture, distribute, and promote music—which is the historic all-in record label model—but Mobtown Studios is onto something entirely different, something that might resemble a bit more closely the future of music and how we get it. The music from the micro showcase is free, first of all, via a download on Mobtown’s web site. Second, the music is recorded live, mostly at house concerts, and, even more than that, at shows that are designed to be something “new” for the band or artist. A new arrangement, perhaps, or new lineup. An acoustic set rather than plugged-in, maybe. In other words, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime performance. The whole thing winds up a curious hybrid of venue, label, and recording studio. Releases so far include sets from Secret Mountains, Dustin Wong, Yukon, and many more.
