Salon has posted an article looking at the reaction some fans of The Postal Service had upon learning that the opening act for their recent tour was Big Freedia. The title of the article, "White music fans are afraid of difference: When Postal Service fans get aggressively upset over a black opening act, that's evidence of a bigger problem," may turn some readers off -- but the article is definitely worth the read and discussion.
Maybe the most pissed and confounded Twitter responders to Big Freedia’s show hate rap, hip-hop and butts. But I bet they don’t. They appear to be white people mostly in their late 20s like me, and I bet they consume all kinds of music. But they were walking...

A lot of you are asking for a "return to Kingdoms"... A lot of you are going to be quite happy with this new record.

Update: Ok, looks like that was an overzealous page admin.
Hey what's up guys. Misha here just wanting to clear up a few things. We actually have a page administrator that runs the Facebook in our off time but it seems he got a little overzealous in that last post.

I am very excited about this album, as it holds an idea and concept I came up with on my own and for six months carried to fruition (and yes Jake, Sean, Gabe and Felipe wrote all the music with me). It is literally, my baby. And when the...

We Are The In Crowd recorded a new single to be released later this month.
Many of you have been curious about what we were up to in LA this week and it was so hard to keep it a secret.. and not instagram every minute of it haha.

So here it is: We decided to head into the studio early just for you and record a brand new single that none of you have heard yet! It will be released later this month so stay posted!!

Best Intentions has been out for 2 years now! That’s a long life for our first record and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for that. The least we could do is release a new song in return!

We are so happy and proud of the new music we’ve been writing together....

Former The Downtown Fiction drummer and current From Indian Lakes manager, Eric Jones, wrote a blog about signing a record deal, what it means for bands, the misconceptions behind it, and advice for young bands - check it out here.
I think a big misconception amongst young bands is that signing to a label is the end-all be-all. That it is the pinnacle of your career. But here’s the truth: at best, it’s a platform to build off of. I wish someone would’ve told that to me when I had first signed. I hate to say it, but I got a little lazy. The entire band did. We waited for the label to make us rich and famous, as if the label could churn out the hits, put a few 0’s in our bank accounts,...
