Prodigy of Mobb Deep was not happy about getting a perfect score from Pitchfork for the re-release of Da Infamous. Dylan McCarthy at ToneDeaf takes a look at the entire situation:
He raises the question: should privileged middle-class white guys be commenting on rap music when they have no firsthand experience of the culture and the struggles and oppression that come with it – in other words, no credibility on the matter?

The AV Club has a long form article series about punk in the 90's, and today's article is about the year 1997. Bands discussed include a pre-fame Jimmy Eat World, a Glen Danzig-less Misfits and, of course, Blink-182. Good lunch time reading, for sure.
In 1997—as I was reminded the hard way at the Blink-182/Jimmy Eat World show at the Mercury—much of the punk scene was still fragmented, confused, and resistant to new things. Not for long, though. And a newfound willingness to evolve was about to hit the punk scene in an earth-shaking way.

Our interview with Boys On The Radio can be found here, the new project from Lovedrug's Michael Shepard.
I would say what balanced out Lovedrug, as far as the writing was concerned, was the other guys in Lovedrug were very much more into the indie side of music, the cooler, underground music. I was always kind of the pop guy who brought some of the hookier stuff to the music. So when I sat down to do a record by myself, essentially I’m writing pop songs. I’ve been going through this huge ‘80s thing lately. I was largely influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, stuff like that that I grew up loving, kind of writing from a modern standpoint but with a little bit of that...

Billboard is reporting that Spotify is finalizing a deal with Sprint to bundle their on-demand music service with Sprint family plans.
Mobile plan bundling is generally believed to be the Holy Grail for taking on-demand music services to mainstream users in the U.S. and Europe as the right kind of plan can make paying for music seamless – similar to how consumers pay for premium networks on their cable TV bills.
