Meredith Graves gave a speech at the Basilica Soundscape festival in Hudson, New York that has been drawing wide (and deserved) acclaim. The Talkhouse has published the transcript.
Women are called upon every day to prove our right to participate in music on the basis of our authenticity — or perceived lack thereof. Our credentials are constantly being checked — you say you like a band you’ve only heard a couple of times? Prepare to answer which guitarist played on a specific record and what year he left the band. But don’t admit you haven’t heard them, either, because they’ll accuse you of only saying you like that genre to look cool. Then they’ll ask you if you’ve ever heard of about...

Robin Thicke admits he didn't really write "Blurred Lines."
Robin Thicke admitted in court that he didn’t really help write the 2013 smash "Blurred Lines" -- in part because he was high on the painkiller Vicodin when the song was being written.

mewithoutYou have been forced to postpone the pre-order for Catch For Us The Foxes due to a lack of communication from Universal Music Group, who owns the masters to mwY's records. The full message from the band is in the replies.
But Tooth & Nail no longer owns the masters to our records. For whatever reason they were transferred to Universal Music Group. Once UMG had these masters in their possession they squelched all licenses. Gilead and Burnt Toast were no longer allowed to press vinyls of our records. That’s because UMG is a big label with big resources. Vinyl is no longer the niche product it once was and they don’t need smaller labels to handle manufacturing for them, making a...

Apparently Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon wasn't too pleased that The War on Drugs were playing at the same time as him during Ottawa Folk Fest.
Kozelek attempted to launch into the album's confessional "Dogs" before noise from the main stage drew the singer into a couple of false starts, prompting him to address the crowd with, "Who the fuck is that?" When audience members jovially informed him that it was Philadelphia band the War on Drugs, Kozelek replied by saying, "I hate that beer commercial lead-guitar shit" before exclaiming, "This next song is called, 'The War on Drugs Can Suck My Fucking Dick.'"

What I want you to do, Matt, what I want you to do is I want you to run the video that everyone is talking about where I so-called screamed at somebody.

You can check out the first part of our interview with Like Moths To Flames vocalist Chris Roetter here. In this half we talk about the band's time on this summer's All-Stars Tour, the band's live performance, as well as their current album, An Eye For An Eye. Come back tomorrow for part two.
No, we’re trying to change it up and go with more of a plan as a unit, as opposed to a plan as individuals. We’re trying to sit down and take the pre-production and the writing more into consideration instead of the studio to come and go “Shit, we have to write 15 songs”. We’re going in with the intent of having 10-15 songs, and then trimming it down to record 2 or 3.

Fall Out Boy's "Centuries" is officially the song of ESPN's college football playoff coverage. Now, the ESPN page lists this song as the "title track" from the band's upcoming album -- which would mean the new album would be titled Centuries, right? I haven't heard anything about this nugget of information besides this post on ESPN.
ESPN's coverage of the inaugural four-team playoff will showcase the upcoming single "Centuries" from the critically acclaimed, multiplatinum-selling band, the network announced today. The song, which is the title track from the band's forthcoming album, will be featured during playoff game and studio telecasts, and in on-air promotions throughout the...
