SXSW has banned most drone usage this year.
"This policy was established after consultation with drone experts, user groups, municipal authorities and aviation safety experts," read a SXSW statement. "While SXSW may make exceptions to this policy if the drones are used within certain trade show areas where safety measures such as tethering to the ground are implemented, the airwaves and/or frequency spectrums generally used in the remote control of drones are too congested during the SXSW event to ensure operation safe from interference."

Head North are releasing a new EP called Bloodlines on March 24th via Bad Timing Records. You might remember when we premiered "The Planet" last month, and today we are streaming the whole EP. Look no further than "Brave Hands" for the best song the band has written, equipped with emotion-drenched vocals and guitars to match. "Bluejay" showcases some of the band's best guitar work, while "The Path" features gritty strums and haunting dual vocals that approach screams. Fans of Have Mercy's The Earth Pushed Back should really enjoy these tracks, as it makes it pretty clear why they're on the road together right now with Weatherbox and You, Me & Everyone We Know. Stream the whole thing...

Travis Barker of Blink-182 sat down with Yahoo! and has posted a new band photo of Blink-182 with Matt Skiba on Instagram.
According to Barker, a big part of the issue was that DeLonge’s heart wasn’t in Blink. “If I showed up for this interview and I was like, “Oh, man,’ you wouldn’t even want to do this interview. You would catch my vibe,” he says. “That’s what it was like playing at practice with the dude forever. It was just like, you’d drive to Orange County to practice, drive an hour and a half to get there, dude’s upset, bummed-out or venting about something. We’re all, ‘Everyone’s got their issues, let’s just play music and have fun and be happy and kick ass.’ So it feels good to...

Jeff John Roberts, writing at Gigaom, looks at the different legal cases related to royalties and the music industry that are set to shake out this year.
A solution from courts or Congress is in order. The danger, though, is that a partial solution will protect parochial interests such as FM stations or labels that own 1960's recordings without creating a sustainable system for royalties in the digital age. There's also a risk that changes to the law will simply scapegoat companies like Pandora and Spotify, which represent the future of music, or even kill them off altogether. In any event, watch closely. This is the year that a lot of long-time log-jams in the music industry appear set...

Zac Lomas, writing for PunkOut, looks at pop-punk's heteronormativity:
The pop-punk scene needs to make a stand and support pop-punk bands that openly identify as LGBTQ and whose songs give the LGBTQ community something to identify with. The LGBTQ community needs to hear Jordan Black from Like Pacific scream about his failed relationships, they need to hear Against Me’s Laura Jane Grace sing about the harsh realities of being Trans in America, and they need their own Soupy.

Quick question before we begin. How much time do you have? Two, three days? That might be enough time for me to talk about how much I love All Get Out, but no promises. Follow-Up question: Is it ok if we make this whole thing about me? No? Fine. So this band, who have not released new music since they recorded my favorite album of all time (personal revelation!) The Season, in 2011, are releasing an EP called Movement on April 14th via Bad Timing Records and Favorite Gentlemen Recordings, and it'll slay you. Forget about the passage of time, because with Movement, and especially the song we're premiering, "Balance," it's all just the continuation of Nathan Hussey's search for calm in a...

Meredith Graves has interviewed her dad all about Radiohead.
I have almost nothing to say on the subject of Radiohead. I barely know anything about their music, because I’ve never liked it. It’s not a value judgment on their personhood or anything — it’s just not for me. The only person in my immediate life who likes Radiohead is my dad, who also happens to be pretty much my best friend in the world. He’s super smart– he’s a journalist and a tech wizard, and he’s also a huge music nerd. He also, historically, doesn’t take shit from me, so I figured I would ask him to explain why Radiohead is good, rather than sit here and write about why I don’t like them.

As I recently exclusively revealed on this here web portal, all facts and evidence point to the conclusion that Philadelphia rock band The Weaks is The Greatest Rock Band On Earth™. In the replies, we're streaming a song by The Weaks, which is called "Still Courting." It's one of the songs that sounds like a mix between grungy Nirvana stuff and poppy Weezer stuff underlined by inherent emo-ism; there are many such songs on the band's new full-length, Bad Year, which drops on April 7 via Lame-O Records and can be pre-ordered now (physical / digital). So, if you think you would enjoy The Greatest Rock Band On Earth™, feel free to check them out in the replies.
