After talking with staff over the past few weeks, we realized that the "free music friday" posts we were doing weren't really working and hadn't become what we thought the feature could be when we started it all those years ago. So, we're sunsetting it and will be trying out some new features throughout the week instead. Hmmm, how about: free music wednesday! Basically, the idea is that a staff member will find one song/album/whatever that's available for free and write a little something about it on the homepage. That thread will then be open to anyone else that would like to share free (legal!) music with other listeners. Your band, your friends' band, whatever. And, on that note: this...

Future has released a video game based on his song "I Won" with Kanye West, a highlight from his new album Honest. The game is based around turning women into trophies by throwing chains at them. It is appalling.

Miss May I have released a second, longer statement about the passing of a fan at their concert.
Hey everyone, apologies for the radio silence these last couple of days. After what happened we've all taken some time to reflect but we had to speak up today to give our heartfelt thanks. First and foremost, to those who've reached out tooffer their sympathies or who've kept Alberto and his family in their thoughts and prayers. In particular to all those who donated to his family; after only a few days they have almost reached their fundraising goal. If you can spare any amount, no matter how small, it will be greatly appreciated. You can do so here.

We're also looking into an auction....

Need to know how to stop a wedding when your beloved is going to marry someone else? WikiHow has you covered. I think we found the end of the internet.
If you were not able to contact her before hand, and you are sure that you want to proceed, find out the location of the wedding. Unless you have been invited, you will have to find out where the wedding ceremony is to be held, and the exact time. Ask family members or mutual friends if it doesn't appear too suspicious, or perhaps check the wedding notices in the local newspaper.

Rdio and Cumulus Media (a terrestrial radio operator) have announced a new partnership.
The arrangement will lead to a new iteration of Rdio this summer, which will include a free, ad-supported streaming music service, according to Dickey. “This will make it a level playing field in terms of the offerings of Spotify or Pandora,” he said. “This is a necessity to be competitive in the U.S. market.” The first version of its free, ad-supported service appeared in January.

In addition, the two companies are "in discussions" to include non-music programming, including content from properties Cumulus acquired when it paid $260 million for the Dial Global radio network -- since rebranded as...

Mariel Loveland (Candy Hearts) recently wrote a column for Noisey on "how to survive being the only girl in a band."
Your bandmates are your family, which means you take care of each other always. This could mean wing-manning your bassist the perfect lady when he’s feeling down on his luck, sharing cold medicine, using the band credit card to buy Chipotle when morale is low, having your bandmates walk you to the car at night in a dangerous city, or letting them carry you to a hotel room, take off your shoes, and put you to bed when you’ve had one whiskey past your limit.

Ok, not really - but the two did have some fun on twitter yesterday, with Regis poking fun at Raekwon's nickname of "the Chef" with #DownWithTheWu. Then Rae asked "Uncle Regis" for a turkey burger. I like to imagine a world where these two have the highest rated morning talk show in the country.
