Today we're introducing you to New Jersey emo-rock quintet Sleep In, a band whose guitarist, Eric McNelis, was a member of Evan Weiss' former band The Progress. The group will release their debut LP, Settling, on April 29 (digital) and May 27 (vinyl; preorder here) via Hide Away Records and you can stream a new song from the release, "Sleep Sound," in the replies. Check out the song if you're a fan of Topshelf Records emo and enjoy some pop sensibility with your emo; you can also listen to the album-opening "I Do Know and I'm Not Sorry" here if you want another taste.

Check out the song in the replies - it's off the band's upcoming new LP, Thousand Yard Stare, which will be available on May 20th and can be pre-ordered now via Broken Circles.

Sky Ferreira released the music video for a 2013 highlight "I Blame Myself" yesterday. At the time, she wrote that it was "obviously based off of real events," referring to her 2013 arrest alongside DIIV frontman/boyfriend Zachary Cole for posession of controlled substances. Now, she's taken to Facebook to defend herself against accusations of racism in the video. Read her response to the accusations in the replies.

France has dropped the anti-discrimination case against Bob Dylan.
Now that the five-month investigation into Dylan's case has been closed, the same charges he faced have been brought against Rolling Stone France publisher Michael Birnbaum, who faces up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of €45,000 ($62,000) for publishing the remarks. Neither his lawyer nor representatives from the U.S. edition of Rolling Stone gave comments to the Wall Street Journal.

Fun. are getting back to work on a new album.
"It's weird to talk about this, but it is interesting when you look at a song like 'Some Nights.' I remember when writing it, the thought was, 'No one’s gonna understand this. This isn't gonna happen. And this is the last chance, and then I gotta go get a real job,'" he said. "The first song on this new album is like the opposite of that, lyrically. You know, 'You got what you wished for. What the fuck are you wishing for now?'

This version has been remixed by Taylor Young (Nails, Twitching Tongues), remastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and will be presented with brand new artwork. Look for a release later in 2014 along with the band's debut LP on Revelation.

Brenden Kelly, of The Lawrence Arms, reflects on the last six-years of blogging.
As for things I’ve learned that aren’t about the craft of writing: Don’t say shit that’s controversial or antagonistic unless you’re sure you mean it or you REALLY don’t care. The internet is full of trolls and all they want to do is hurt people who make stuff (even stuff as inconsequential as a dumb blog or thought catalog listicle). That’s just their general MO. If you insult something they like, watch the fuck out.

Music attorney Lee Phillips believes that labels made a mistake by not doing a deal with Napster. Hindsight is twenty-twenty and all that -- but the article raises some good points.
“The labels will pay anything to keep prestige acts,” he says, pointing to his recent handling of negotiations on behalf of Barbra Streisand to re-sign with Columbia Records. “But there are only a handful of artists in that category. In signing new acts, it’s not only about talent, but what kind of following you bring to the table. That’s why labels have started signing these 360 deals. Since they’re not making money from albums sales, they want a piece of touring, publishing merchandising and endorsements.”

You Me at Six will be postponing their North American tour.
Following more than a year of straight touring, Josh is suffering from vocal exhaustion and is under doctor’s orders to rest his vocal cords for a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Matt, Max, Chris, Dan, and of course, Josh, are therefore sorry and disappointed to announce the unavoidable postponement of their upcoming North America Tour, which was due to start in LA on April 21st. Given Josh’s need for rest, the band is unable to perform at the high energy level for which they’re known.

ALL VIP & GA tickets for the tour will be valid for the rescheduled shows, which will now run from September 15th through October 20th. The new shows...

Tim Hirsh, writing for EDM.com, has written an article on why Outkast "flopped" at Coachella -- placing the blame on (you should have guessed) EDM.
We all like to party and dance around. But now a great deal of people that come out to festivals have an expectation of immediately accessible music. You could have wandered into Dillon Francis’s Coachella set without knowing a single song and absolutely loved it. EDM, in a live setting, has a way of being instantly entertaining – and here’s the kicker – in a way lyrical, 90s-style hip hop really has no chance at matching. When you’re accustomed to thousands of perfectly synced strobe lights and the energy-building peaks and valleys of a...

Coca-Cola's head of global entertainment recently sat down with Billboard to talk about their music strategy.
I think the payoff is it allows us to have another sensory experience for the brand. The vision is to have the same expression through music where people can find that happiness, that uplift, that positivity through music, through a Coke Spotify page, through something we’re doing on our web site, through one of the experiences we’re creating around the world. It's creating that consistent experience around music that brings to life our brand and what the brand means.

Speaking exclusively to the UK’s The Telegraph, he said: “We are definitely getting together in May in Vancouver. We’re going to pick up some guitars, have a plonk, and see if anybody has got any tunes or ideas. If anything happens, we’ll record it.”
