Top 10 Reasons to Say No to Eno – Number 8

October 26, 2010

Number 8

Remember that this countdown is a celebration of netlabel music, not so much a slam on Brian Eno. Any sleight is just a side benefit. What I firmly believe that much of the adulation being pointed at Eno and his new album could be better directed to a lot of beautiful music in the netlabel world.

Number 8. Ian D. Hawgood. You might know Ian Hawgood as Koen Park or as the curator of Home Normal, but regardless, Hawgood’s work stands head and shoulders above many of his peers. He has appeared on many netlabels including Acroplane, Headphonica, and 12 rec among others. One of my favorite albums is his 2008 release, A Life in Abstract Colours (Resting Bell).

  1. My comment yesterday wasn’t really meant to be a slam on Eno, just to say that perhaps he didn’t influence my tastes as much as he has other folks and that nowadays, the true innovation in music is happening in the netaudio world.

    Who are you to tell what labels should promote whom and when? It appears that you are just wanting to jump on some of the attention. So, in essence, you seem like hypocrite. Promote what you want to promote, but please step down off of your pedestal and stop pointing fingers. If all of this really has nothing to do with Eno, you wouldn’t be using his name for your sensation. The end.
