This is my first blog post in a long time – it will also be my last one.
I’ve thought about this for a long time and lost a lot of sleep over it, trying to bring everything under one hat, as we like to say in Austria, but I like to do things properly or not at all. I currently find myself in a situation where I don’t have enough time to run this blog the way I want to, so I’m calling it quits now. This might have been one of the hardest decision in my entire life, seriously.
I’m not going to get all sentimental now (ok, maybe a little), so I’ll just say thank you. To each and every musician out there saying fuck you to mediocrity and making incredible music that really stands out – at the risk of sounding cheesy, but you are the reason I started this blog six years ago. To all the labels who believe in upcoming artists and help them getting the word out – and who also provided me with a constant stream of quality music. To everyone who contributed to the site, who helped me with tech stuff, gave me advice or just told me not to stop. To all the other music bloggers, always digging for the most exciting new music out there. To everyone who took the time to listen to the music I posted, and to read what I had to say about it.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
