We recently had the chance to talk with Justin Pierre about Motion City Soundtrack's latest album, Panic Stations. Find it here.
So my relationship with this record is such that having had it for a year, as I’ve gotten older and as I’ve written songs I think a lot more of it I’ve gone with my gut instinct. I sort of let instinct take over. Like I think I had the chorus for “I Can Feel You” but I didn’t know what it meant, and then I had to write around that even though I didn’t know what it meant. Then as I started piecing together the verses, then what the song was about changed and the chorus made sense to me.

The New York Times is reporting that Playboy will soon no longer print nude photos in their magazine.
Previous efforts to revamp Playboy, as recently as three years ago, have never quite stuck. And those who have accused it of exploiting women are unlikely to be assuaged by a modest cover-up. But, according to its own research, Playboy’s logo is one of the most recognizable in the world, along with those of Apple and Nike. This time, as the magazine seeks to compete with younger outlets like Vice, Mr. Flanders said, it sought to answer a key question: “if you take nudity out, what’s left?”

Peter Kafka, writing for Re/Code:
Okay: YouTube wants us to know that the video for “See You Again,” Wiz Khalifa’s Paul Walker tribute from the most recent “Fast and the Furious” movie has been seen a billion times. But what YouTube really wants us to know is that lots of music videos have generated a billion views recently. Up until a few years ago, no video had generated a billion views, but now it’s happening all the time.

The new book, Notes From The Velvet Underground, paints Lou Reed as a pretty big asshole.
Following Reed’s death in 2013, Howard Sounes interviewed more than 140 of his school friends, bandmates, girlfriends, and family members. “I loved his music, but you have to go where the story goes,” Sounes told The Daily Beast. “The obituaries were a bit too kind, he was really a very unpleasant man. A monster really; I think truly the word monster is applicable.”

Week one of Brian Fallon's recording with Butch Walker is in the books. Brian posted a blog update about the progress.
We’ve been starting every song out with acoustic guitar, vocal, bass, and drums live and then we pretty much build from there. It’s a great way to do it because as each thing goes on top you start to hear more and more of a finished song. We’re choosing each layer carefully and only putting on what we feel adds to the song, not just layering for the sake of slapping 32 guitars of the same part.

So far there’s been pianos, mandolin, a LOT of 12 string guitars (yes!), a banjo, and one song with pedal steel!!!! What?!? RULES! I’m from NJ, so I never heard pedal steel on...
