XL recordings = British independent label

it has some commercial acts and some underground acts. . .but their hip-hop is not mainstream

Cool Kids is also on that label


smarten up. . .
Goblin is a mainstream release. So was Adele's album. Because they originate from what it ostensibly an indie label does not change that they are marketed towards wider bigger mainstream audiences. Adele had a big push, and Tyler has a big push as well. In other words: mainstream.

Wasn't he signed to Universal at one point in his career?

And, didn't he just appear on Comedy Central's "Comedy Awards" along with Jon Cryer from "Two & a Half Men"?

Zero airplay?

You don't listen to alot of Satellite Radio, do you?

Also, even big artists are responsible for their own music videos, whether they choose to direct 'em themselves, or hire a director, it's in the artist's hands. So, not an apt comparison.

Actually, Desire was a mainstream release. It was released through UMG. Actually, he ended up on UMG after there was a big bidding war to try and bring him to Shady.

so wait

a big push now consists of getting satellite radio play?

ANYTHING can and does get play on satellite radio. MF Doom gets play on satellite radio from time to time


its pretty simple really. . .If i dont can turn on MTV hip-hop and see your video ever
And cant turn on the radio and hear your song ever

you arent being marketed through mainstream channels

so?

my point is this. . .what exactly qualifies Goblin as a mainstream release?

they get no radio play
they get no video play
The dont have commercials, video game songs
Theyre on an indie label with plenty of other underground acts
Most people still dont know who they are outside of the internet
Theres no famous guest appearances on the album
No famous producers even giving them a beat
All the videos are self produced


All they have is a bunch of magazine covers on niche magazines and a Jimmy Fallon appearance
