Haulix Weekly Update #54: You And I Both Know That This House Is Haunted

The arrival of September is yet another sign that summer is coming to a close. That may make a few of you tan-loving readers sad, but those who have worked in the industry for a while know all the best albums come out in the fall. Right now we are on the verge of what could be the best fall for new music in recent memory, and as far as we can tell there is not a single genre lacking a major release in coming weeks. We will probably feature a slew of our favorites as time goes on, but today we’re going to keep it simple and introduce you to a lovely folk outfit known as Shakey Graves. Their latest album, And Then Came The War hits stores October 7.

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

On the development end of things, the first end of September was spent more on developing and refining tools than launching them. We have a very large list of planned updates and changes that we hope to roll out before the end of 2014, but as you know we like to things close to the chest until they’re ready for release. We hope to simplify everyone’s experience on our platform, and we think you will be pleased with all we have planned. We’ll post all updates here first, so go ahead and click ‘Follow’ in the upper right hand corner if you not done so before now.

The blog was a busy, busy place in recent days. I don’t know how much time you spent clicking around this site, but we have run eight article in the past week that I think are among the best to ever go live. I know we say things like that a lot, but we are constantly trying to outdo whatever it is we accomplished the week before. We want to raise the bar not just for us, but for everyone else writing informative material on the industry. If not us, then who?

In case you missed something, here is a quick rundown of all the content we published in the last week:
