Even though we've posted about Aaron Marsh's (Copeland) studio The Vanguard Room multiple times, we thought we'd let you know that they have a brand new website. There's some neat live session videos on the site and Aaron's always looking for new bands/artists to produce so give it a look.

Welcome to My Back Pages, a collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike, most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

Today, we're finally reaching the artist whose song gave our feature its name: Mr. Bob Dylan. How it took us 11 volumes to get...

If you're doing hardcore right, you'll have at least one of; menace, grit and ferocity in your armoury. Fortunately for London crew Lay It On The Line, they boast all three.

Spotify has announced that they will be dropping all time limits on their ad-supported desktop streaming platform.
Most companies that use a so-called "freemium" model report that the longer a person uses their service, the more likely they are to pay for that service at some point. That's one reason that Spotify has millions more users than any other on-demand music streaming service: its free offerings have always been significantly more generous than its peers. Eliminating the caps on free listening will cost the company more money in the short run — but it may also help the company pull away from its competition even faster.

Ryan Key (Yellowcard) talks a little about the band's current status and what their plays are for this year in an interview with the OC Weekly.
I've written more than I usually do at this stage...everyone in the band is really spread out geographically right now. Usually, Ryan, Sean and I start writing together early on, but that's kind of hard to do this time. We've talked a lot about it though, and the general consensus is we want it to be really big sounding. We want to open it up big and wide. Songs that we reference are "Be The Young" and "Only One," so more stuff like that maybe...Also, I'm not sure where I'm going to go lyrically with it, but going through this insane personal...

The concert industry grossed a record $5.1 billion in North America last year, according to a new analysis from trade publication Pollstar, thanks to near-record prices and a huge number of shows by major acts.
