Steven Hyden, writing for Grantland on "Lead Singer Disease" and the new album from Nate Ruess:
The cliché about solo albums is that they compel an artist to finally indulge his or her unrequited whims. But eclecticism is already baked into Fun.’s music — what’s left for Ruess to show off on Grand Romantic is the depth of his Rolodex. For “Take It Back,” a gently loping prairie blues that culminates in Ruess’s over-eager theater kid vocal histrionics, Jeff Tweedy makes a surprise appearance to lay down an impressively gnarled guitar solo. It’s both stunning and totally incongruous, like seeing Mark Kozelek suddenly pop up in a Maroon 5 video. But Ruess is angling for a seat at a more...

I recently spoke with Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind as he celebrated the release of the band's fifth album, Dopamine. Check it out here.
We were pushed into marketing and branding that we never recognized. We would do photo shoots and I would look at them and just flatline. I was like, “I have no relationship to this. I don’t know what this is.” It was just our record company trying to get the quickest line to a dollar. And we would have fights and arguments about it, but what we didn’t realize is that we could just say no.

Back in April of 2014, we hosted a stream of Northbound's Death of a Slug. Today, we're premiering the new and improved version of the album, which comes out on June 30th via Animal Style Records.

After the success of Taylor Swift's open letter to Apple, a photographer has penned their own open letter asking Taylor and company to re-think their photography policy.
Now.. forgive me if I’m wrong, but if you take points 2 and 3 in that contract (which is provided to Photographers who need to agree to those terms before they are allowed to do their job in photographing you for editorial outlets), it appears to be a complete rights grab, and demands that you are granted free and unlimited use of our work, worldwide, in perpetuity. You say in your letter to Apple that “Three months is a long time to go unpaid”. But you seem happy to restrict us to being paid once, and never being...

Cementing Taylor Swift's position as the most powerful person in the music industry: Eddy Cue of Apple just announced the company will pay artists (probably means the labels) for streaming that takes place during the free trial.

Update: Eddy Cue talked with ReCode about the change in policy.
Cue says Apple will pay rights holders for the entire three months of the trial period. It can’t be at the same rate that Apple is paying them after free users become subscribers, since Apple is paying out a percentage of revenues once subscribers start paying. Instead, he says, Apple will pay rights holders on a per-stream basis, which he won’t disclose.

Taylor Swift has posted an open letter to Apple Music on her blog about why she's keeping her latest album off the platform.
This is not about me. Thankfully I am on my fifth album and can support myself, my band, crew, and entire management team by playing live shows. This is about the new artist or band that has just released their first single and will not be paid for its success. This is about the young songwriter who just got his or her first cut and thought that the royalties from that would get them out of debt. This is about the producer who works tirelessly to innovate and create, just like the innovators and creators at Apple are pioneering in their field…but will not get paid...

Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney has a memoir called Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl coming out on the 27th of October.
HUNGER MAKES ME A MODERN GIRL is an intimate and revealing narrative of her escape from a turbulent family life into a world where music was the means toward self-invention, community, and rescue. Along the way, Brownstein chronicles the excitement and contradictions within the era’s flourishing and fiercely independent music subculture, including experiences that sowed the seeds for the observational satire of the popular television series Portlandia years later.
