    How long until artists stop releasing albums entirely?

    Im in the process of reading a great article on Rick Rubin, and it occurred to me that it cannot be long until artists give up on the notion of the album entirely.

    Interesting video explaining how to try and understand the 10th dimension and those underneath it. Kinda lost me at some point.

    Surgeon and Dubstep
