The Way Music Should be Made

Good article about Nonesuch Records (the label of Wilco, Magnetic Fields and other favorites) in the NYTimes Magazine.

“Nonesuch is piracy-proof,” the singer Emmylou Harris — who became the label’s first ”adult pop” signing four years ago — said when I asked her to list the things that set her label apart. ”Their audience actually enjoys buying a record. When I got into music in my teens, the album was a thing in itself. It was a whole piece of work that had a reason to flow the way it did. You weren’t interested in just one or two songs. Nonesuch is still in the business of supporting album artists.”
