We premiered This Good Robot's full-length debut, The Light is Taking Me to Pieces, back in April. Now we're debuting their music video for the album's new single, "Get That Money," in the replies. The video captures the frantic nature of the music, as swirling visuals accompany the experimental pop-rock instrumentation. The genre-bending Long Island group is fronted by former Patent Pending vocalist Michael Ragosta.

Last week, Spotify launched a new feature called Discover Weekly. David Pierce over at Wired wrote an article explaining the new feature along with Spotify's goal to "build better playlists by any means necessary."
Itís a completely personalized playlist (updated, you know, weekly) full of songs Spotify is pretty sure youíre going to want to hear. Some hits, some new stuff, that Foreigner song youíve never been able to get out of your head... Itís no longer enough for a music service to offer unfettered access to 30-plus million songs for a monthly fee... Now the race is on to become the place for music discovery.

Pierce also discusses Spotify's fascinating employee-only tool, Truffle...

The Gaslight Anthem have confirmed they're taking some time off as a band.
We wanted to let everyone know that we'll all be taking a break from The Gaslight Anthem after this next European tour in August. We're all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we'd like to step away from the band until we decide what we'd like to do next. We'd like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us.

Thank you to everyone who...

In an interview with Substream, Nate Ruess has stated that he was disappointed with his lyrics on fun.'s album Some Nights.
Iím proud of Some Nights, but there was stuff that I wanted to do differently. After spending a bunch of time on tour, you listen to other music and your tastes change a little bit, so I wanted to bring some of those things into my next album. For me, I was more disappointed with my lyrics on Some Nights, and wished I could go back and change certain things, so this time around I was very hyper-focused on my lyrics.

If you have been jamming Lord Huron and Ace Enders' new albums, it's time for Side Saddle to be on your radar. Having collaborated with Rick Parker (Lord Huron, Good Old War) on their debut LP, The Astorian, in 2014, the six piece folk-pop ensemble are back with a brand new EP, entitled Young Professional, released on July 20. While doing my research on Side Saddle for this feature, one thing became very clear: while some songs make you want to dance, and others make you want to weep, they will always make you want to sing along.

"Young Professional is the story of love lost and love found in the concrete jungle of New York City," according to Ian McGuinness, Side Saddles' lead singer...

HitsDailyDouble is reporting that Apple Music's subscription numbers are in the 10 million arena after four weeks. That would be far higher than what I'd previously guessed.
Apple doesnít make its streaming numbers public but is showing reports to those rights holders, who have been surprised by how big those figures already are. Some streaming numbers (notably on a couple of cutting-edge hip-hop titles) are actually competitive with Spotifyís. Some rights holders feel Apple should publicize these figures; the decision to do so or not falls to Eddy Cue. But releasing the numbers would likely go a long way toward turning those who donít yet get it into believers.

Buddy from Senses Fail posted a lengthy message on Twitter last night about the state of the music scene and the bullshit going on in it right now. It's definitely worth a read.
This music scene is literally filled with dudes in bands who are trying to have sexual relationships with underage girls. It's fucking crazy. People in newer and younger bands are extremely uneducated as to proper behavior. We are in serious need of people in the community to speak up and set examples on how to conduct yourself online, at shows and in private because apparently there are a lot of men who aren't getting the message, don't care and don't think their actions are causing irreversible harm. Silence...

Getting kicked off Warped Tour was the "best thing to ever happen" to Slaves. So, we're now at the point where harassing a woman to the point where you get kicked off a tour for it is now the best thing to happen to a band. Well, that's depressing as hell.

Queen Moo is a young Connecticut-based punk act with members that have played or currently play in Two Humans and Sorority Noise. Incidentally, bands like Sorority Noise and Modern Baseball serve as good comparisons for Queen Moo's new song "Have It," which you can stream exclusively in the replies. Don't fret if there are aspects of those bands you dislike, though: Queen Moo is best characterized by their unique blending of group vocal melodies and interesting chord progressions. Their self-titled LP is out August 10, and a pre-order will be live soon.

I recently spoke with Jose Pasillas, the drummer of Incubus. The band had originally planned on releasing another EP later this year, but now they're considering doing a full-length instead. See the interview here.
This is an experiment for us. Weíre writing, recording, rehearsing, and touring all back to back. Weíre exploring our options and we donít have anything set in stone, so that may be an option for us to put out a whole record.
