Apologies if this is the wrong forum or if this has been covered (if so, please link), but anywho... Thom Yorke of Radiohead is warning new artists against signing with labels - going so far as to say the labels will be dead and buried soon. I really don't disagree. But what I am more interested in is what new artists should be doing to (1) get release-quality music made, (2) distribute said music, (3) market themselves, and (4) tour. That's not a rhetorical thing I am inquiring about, either. I'm just wondering if anyone/anysite has solved that riddle to replace what the soon-to-be-dead labels offered. I've listened to/read Yorke's thoughts on the dying industry, and Trent Reznor's thoughts, and so on and so forth, but I don't hear a clear answer on those points. Curious if anyone else has. Thanks.
