Hey! An article at Noisey I totally agree with: People need to stop calling Kanye West a gay fish.
But this isn't just a Bonnaroo problem, even if that festival's admirably devoted fanbase has a particular grudge against Kanye and a higher-than-average number of gay fish-themed signs in its midst. It’s everyone’s problem: It’s our problem that we still think that calling someone gay is an inherently OK way to insult them. More than that, people need to get over the three things Kanye West did in 2009 that they thought were lame, and pay attention to what he's doing now. You might like it. Even if you hate it, maybe you'll at least find something better to make fun of than the one...

Listen to Jessie Ware's brand new single "Tough Love", which was produced by BenZel, in the replies.
“I had just finished a run of shows in the States and went to NY to work with BenZel for a couple weeks, mainly as a different focus to touring. I didn’t have any expectations or pressures with what would come out of those two weeks, and think ‘Tough Love’ sums this up. It was me experimenting with my voice and having fun with it. It just felt right and kind of dictated the route of the next album, much like ‘Devotion’ did on my first album” – Jessie Ware

Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood wrote a piece for The Guardian on how classical music has led him to love live performance.
And yet, applied to acoustic classical music, all bets are off. I don't trust microphones or speakers for that, whether it's recorded or played live. They approximate and inflate rather than distil and concentrate. And with sonically complex contemporary music such as Ligeti or Penderecki, mics and speakers make things sound harsh and discordant. The live experience is far softer, stranger and more colourful than two speakers can put across. If you haven't heard it live, you haven't really heard it – and yet 90% of judgments on classical music are made from hearing...

Gerard Way debuted "Action Cat" earlier this week and there were some comments about how the vocals sounded "buried" in the mix -- while the merits of if it works are definitely up for the debate, Gerard has clarified on Twitter that it's exactly the sound he was going for. Personally, I'm always interested in seeing an artist's thoughts on choices made in recording that listeners react negatively too. I feel like we usually go into a listening session with the assumption that if something sounds "off" or "wrong" that it's a mistake and rarely do we focus on why that choice may have been made intentionally.

Swedish artist Avicii mentions in a new interview that he plans to work with Billie Joe of Green Day on his new album.
It seems as if he still can not quite believe it, that he has outgrown his little room in which he created the first songs on the computer - and now plays along, even in the big leagues. "For my next album I got myself Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, Brandon Flowers of the Killers and even Chris Martin into the studio - this is so great for me, I have always admired them all."
