Nilay Patel, writing for Vox, looks at the economic missteps in Taylor Swift's recent Wall Street Journal op-ed.
Taylor makes a nice little argument in favor of paying for music. "Music is art," she says, "and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is." This is an impressively-constructed syllogism. It is also deeply, deeply wrong.

The single hardest economic problem posed by the internet is the end of scarcity.

Bruce Springsteen's directorial debut, Hunter of Invisible Game, is now streaming at his website.
For a long part of the year, Thom Zimny and I have been talking about shooting a short film for “Hunter Of Invisible Game.” We’ve finally got the job done, and we think it’s one of our best. Thanks Thom for the hard work and brotherly collaboration. You and your crew bring it all. And to all of you out there in E St. Nation, we hope you enjoy! See ya up the road.

A track of Britney Spears "singing without autotune" was leaked online. The producer of the track, William Orbit, has defended the singer stating she was just warming up.
'I'd like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up,' he said. 'Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly.

George R.R. Martin says "fuck you" to those that think he'll die before he finishes his A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) series.
Merely saying it apparently wasn't enough; Martin also flipped the bird to make his feelings resoundingly clear. Martin has been slaving away on The Winds of Winter, the sixth novel, for some time now, but has refrained from offering fans a firm release date — or even a general window as to when they can expect it. He plans to wrap the series after the seventh novel.

Ryan Bort, writing for Esquire:
Summer festivals are the perfect analogy for how consumers interact with music in 2014. Our relationship with the industry is more fragmented and there are more pipelines for consumption than ever before. We have access to and are familiar with more artists than we can keep up with. They're on our friends' social media feeds, covered by the blogs we read, and we can listen, pass judgment, and move on to the next thing in an instant. We stream rather than buy. We listen to individual songs, not entire albums. We don't want to commit. Even if you claim to be a listen-to-the-whole-album purist, I've seen you bouncing around from one or two War on Drugs songs...

After 21 years, drummer Jeremy Taggart has left Our Lady Peace.
It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Jeremy as the drummer in OLP. Jeremy was important to us all and we wish him nothing but the best as he explores life outside OLP and pursues new goals.

A wise man once said "change is the law of life and those who only look to the past are certain to miss the future." We will always treasure our past but we are truly excited about the future. We've just finished recording new music with producer Mike Elizondo and will be showcasing some of the new material on the upcoming summer shows.

Amanda Dobbins, writing for Vulture:
This is usually when someone raises his hand and is like, “Oh, I’ve really been enjoying the new Spoon single, that’s my Song of Summer.” Which ... no. Let’s be clear about how this works: There is no such thing as a “personal” song of summer. We do not anoint multiple songs of summer. There can only be one; the Song of Summer, by its very definition, is a consensus choice. It is the song that wrecks wedding dance floors. It is the song that you and your mother begrudgingly agree on (even though your mom has no idea what rhymes with “hug me” and won't stop yelling it in public.) It does not necessarily have to hit No. 1 on the charts, but it should...

Hayley Williams talks with Rolling Stone about Paramore's new level of success:
We took so long making this album that we couldn't help but be disconnected with what was going on with music at the time. It was about how we felt in the moment, what was inspiring us and what made us excited to be in a band again, and it's so weird that those same songs are the ones that gave us the most success. Some of them are the poppiest things we've ever written..."Ain't It Fun" was like word vomit; it just came out, and now everybody's singing it, it's on the radio, it's really cool. I don't know if you get that twice in your career. This is the first time we've experienced it, and I'm just really...
