Spotify has redesigned their platform ... going with a darker theme and feel.
Now Spotify functions more like the familiar iTunes interface, where you have a home base of all your favorite jams. Except instead of keeping a copy of the actual sound files, it’s a cloud-based collection. This is a big step up from the Starred playlist, which was just a rearrangable list of songs that couldn’t be sorted. You can dump whole artist catalogs, albums, or friends’ playlists into Your Music, and then sort it all any way you want.

The new documentary Heaven Adores You, will be the first full-length feature that is allowed to use Elliott Smith's music -- and, reportedly, will also contain some unreleased music.
Directed by Nickolas Rossi, the film is billed as “an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith.” It will feature unreleased songs, personal pictures, and rare footage in addition to interviews with Smith’s friends and collaborators. Among those appearing in the documentary are Smith’s sister Ashley, Joanna Bolme, Jon Brion, Neil Gust, Larry Crane, Rob Schnapf, and many more.

Emery have launched a crowdfunding campaign to help support their upcoming album, You Were Never Alone. It will be released this summer on BadChristian Music. The packages inlcude autographed merch, limited vinyl, personal fan experiences, and more. All packages come with downloads of two new, rough-version tracks from the upcoming album.
Something didn't feel right about someone else owning Emery's future recordings in perpetuity, especially when independent musicians are getting better opportunities to succeed every year. We want to own our music. We want to be able to sell it, give it away, re-record it in different ways, release vinyl, and do whatever we're inspired to do with it

Amazon has announced their own TV streaming device, dubbed Amazon Fire TV. The very small box will retail for $99, will be voice-activated (but can also come with an optional gaming controller) and connect with Hulu, Netflix and more. Lots of information can be found everywhere on the internet by now, but also there's stuff here.

Check out a demo of "Beat It" performed only by Michael Jackson's voice. Holy shit. If I was writing some viral headline I'd tell you how this will just about blow your mind-hole.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part....

The Republic Of Wolves have released a "new" song called "Kaspir."
When we were writing and recording for our latest album, No Matter How Narrow, we came up with a lot of songs that we really liked, but didn't necessarily fit in with the overall sound of the record. "Kaspir" is one of those songs. It's definitely one of the heaviest songs we've ever recorded and it's probably a good representation of what our next release will sound like. Check it out! We hope you enjoy it!

Somewhat predictably, given this weekend's announcement, The Dangerous Summer have broken up.
To keep you all informed (accurately and unbiased) we are here to let you all know what the real deal is with TDS. Yes we are no longer a band. We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for letting us travel the world, create albums, and meet some of the coolest people and musicians on the planet. Thank you for over 50,000 record sales and over 200,000 single sales and a fan base that blew our minds everytime we went on tour. Sadly the day has come where AJ has decided to take up being a father and focusing on that aspect for his life. As for future music Matt is planning to...

Universal Music Group has announced that Island Def Jam will be transformed into three separate labels: Motown Records, Def Jam Records and Island Records.
Universal said it will dismantle the Island Def Jam group and form three stand-alone labels — Motown Records, Def Jam Records and Island Records. The move will allow the labels to enhance their own marketing and publicity and A&R teams, according to Universal. Def Jam will be led by CEO Steve Bartels, who was previously president and COO of Island Def Jam. Ethiopia Habtemariam will become president of the Motown Records label, which will leave New York and return to its prior home in Los Angeles. Island will continue to be led by...
