The news of Spotify’s growth comes as speculation mounts about the company going public later this year. The anticipation has grown as Spotify has advertised for SEC regulatory staff, agreed a $200 million credit line with several Wall Street banks, inked a partnership with Sprint wireless partnership, expanded in Latin America and acquired EchoNest, a data service.
[It's] very soft, very quiet music, played utterly in synch with the heart rates and breathing rates of the musicians performing it. Every note you hear is either in synch with the heartbeat of the person playing it, the breathing of the person (or one of the surrounding persons) playing it. So what you hear when this music plays is played precisely in time with someone’s quiet, internal rhythms. Brought to musical life by a handful of different ensembles.

Coldplay's performance of "Magic" on Ellen can be found in the replies. I still haven't heard the album yet because the band apparently isn't putting it on streaming services. It's weird how much my listening habits have changed completely these days -- I barely keep an iTunes library anymore.
A lot of that was starting at a young age, not realizing that it wasn’t cool to, like, express your emotions. I wasn’t old enough to be cynical or jaded. I had a similar reaction when I heard your music. So much stuff at your level, in the Top 40 world, is just like vapor: You hear a song and maybe you can hum the melody but you walk away with zero ideas having been communicated. And with your writing, you can do it all at once. You can have this amazing pop anthem that the whole world’s going to sing, and you can still communicate solid, concrete ideas and paint this very vivid picture of lost teenagers in...
A Facebook user has posted a video of what appears to be Unwritten Law losing their shit and trashing the stage. From what we can piece together this took place on the final night of the Hits & Pits tour at Capitol & Amps in Perth, Australia. Apparently the band were upset the venue shut off the power after they had played their allotted minutes? Reading the replies of the video makes it appear this is not the first time on the tour Unwritten Law have been ... less than easy to deal with.
The most generic, cheesiest pop-punk song ever has been written ... and shockingly it's not by Real Friends! Instead, it's by Sunrise Skater Kids, the joke band from Jarrod Alonge. Hit the replies to hear "Pop Punk Pizza Party."

Today, we're premiering a brand new Muscle & Bone song titled "XO," which is off the band's upcoming new LP, Peace & Light, which will be available next Tuesday, May 27th, via Black Numbers. The song is a delicious slice of 90's alt-rock with a splash of contagious melody thrown in for good measure - if you liked Weezer back when they were good, then this track is for you. Check it out in the replies and then scoop it up by pre-ordering it.

Hit the replies to view our premiere of Tied To Machines' video for their new single, "Tampa Bay Mutiny". "Tampa Bay Mutiny" is the raging follow-up single to the Belfast-based hardcore punk band's critically-acclaimed debut album, Carla.

If you're looking for two minutes of rage and anger to kick off this fine Wednesday, the band are at your service. The track is available to download on their Bandcamp.

I was searching #saosin on Instagram to see if I could see any shirts from the reunion shows. I eventually found one and on the back of the shirt it had the dates of the mini-tour. However, it also had June 5 - Anaheim. An Anaheim date has never been announced. I looked up house of blues and it's booked for that day but chain reaction isn't ... maybe?
