We've reached the point where even the less than perfect ideas of years past are being mined for nostalgia. No, I'm not talking about acid washed denim's resurgence (ugh, why?), but that of derided music mediums like the MiniDisc and 8-track. Next month, British musician and producer Trevor Jackson's experimenting with Format, an album spanning 12 different err... formats, each with one song per physical object. Meaning, the release is going to be spread across three sizes of vinyl (12, 10 and 7-inch), CD and mini CD, reel-to-reel, USB, cassette, VHS, MiniDisc, DAT and 8-track. It isn't exactly practical, but it represents another way that artists are expanding beyond a box-standard MP3 download to get their music out to fans. Format's not quite the most outlandish example we've seen, OK Go's DNA album still holds that title, but it's still pretty cool when you stop to think about it. How's that? Well, it chronicles the varying forms of physical media that music's graced over the years.
