Honestly, you know how everyone says they’re their own worst critic? When I listen back to An Eye For An Eye, there’s a lot of shit that I probably would’ve changed lyrically. Some stuff we tried to write in for our fans, like the cheesy one-liners that are there because they make sense in context of the song, but you pull it out by itself and it’s like “Wow, that’s super lame.” I kind of want to stray...

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...

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...
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.'"
Kanye West has responded to criticism from the media about the incident over the weekend in a speech during "Runaway" at his concert in Australia. Watch the video in the replies.
I wanna start with Matt Lauer, because I heard the story's gonna hit the Today show tomorrow: so Matt, when this runs tomorrow morning, I want you to do me a favor. Don't try to force me into some fake apology like the last time I was on the show with you. 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. I want you to run that, since this is such big media press news and obvious shit where you try to demonize...
