Allyson Burnett had filed a lawsuit against Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City's hit song "Good Time" -- the lawsuit was dropped last week. Along with that TMZ is reporting Owl City made over a half-million in royalties on that song. (We reached out to Ally and she declined to comment on the situation. - Thomas Nassiff)
Today, attorneys for Owl City -- real name Adam Young -- filed a proposal in Federal Court that would award him $525,901.77 in disputed ASCAP royalties for the song.

Amazon has unveiled a new music streaming service, Prime Music, which is in a similar vein to Spotify and Rdio. Subscriptions are included for people who are already Prime subscribers, and it marks an interesting new turn in the website's popular service. What do you think? Will Amazon be able to break into the market in a meaningful way, or is it already too late to make an impact?

David Carr, writing for the New York Times:
Late last Thursday, I stopped at the fruit stand and some big, vivid red grapes caught my eye. The vendor said a two-pound bunch would be $6, which seemed steep. I was about to tell him as much, and then came to my senses and gave him the money. I wondered why I hesitated when it came time to pony up and realized that, as just one more participant in the Something for Nothing economy, I’d grown accustomed to getting all sorts of lusciousness for the price of zero.

This week's Free Music Wednesday showcases an innovator in the world of yoga, meditation, and the healing arts. East Forest’s Trevor Oswalt has created a new type of aural experience using music as a “technology,” combining modern scientific sound healing knowledge with the organic field recordings of people and places he encounters along the way — a way that can intentionally facilitate a heightened odyssey of body, mind, and spirit.

Reminiscent of Sigur Rós, Balmorhea, Ólafur Arnalds or The Album Leaf, his music weaves ethereal soundscapes from his vintage keys, intimate vocals, and original field recordings. Listen to the blissful, gentle and uplifting Prana EP, and download...

Between the Buried and Me won't be playing anything pre-Colors anymore.
Yeah it has a special place in my heart as well but the reality is that most of our fans came on board with Colors or maybe Alaska so we have to cater to that, unfortunately. We would like to play some old stuff but the fact of the matter is that most people have never heard it, don’t care, and don’t know what it is.

Update: The band posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
We are an active band and we continue to write new music. As this happens, older material begins to become less relevant to what we are currently doing. If you've seen us multiple times over the last 4 or 5 years, you've probably...

We've been a band for almost twelve years, played on five continents and never had to sell tickets to play a show. You don't either.

Lucky Boys Confusion are working on an EP.
So, my June is filled with shows, writing, rehearsing and recording - I'm exhausted all the time but loving it! It's what I was born to do! After this grueling month, it looks like I'm going to have a pretty relaxed and awesome July. Amongst many other fun events, like Punk Rock Lakehouse and playing Q Bar in Darien - July 26th SHFC plays with the Gin Blossoms at Taste of Lincoln and the day after Ill be lounging on a Lazy River drinking, catching some sun and working on a much needed tan!! Then it's back to grind in August - finishing up the LBC EP and getting in shape for my September vacation! Loving life!

A reddit user going by andrewmn8 who says he exepriences chromesthesia (a variant of synesthesia where a person experiences visual representations of sound) has put his sights to paper. He drew representations of what he sees while listening to "Get Lucky" and "Gangnam Style," among four others. Check out the relatively crude yet interesting paintings in the replies, and maybe submit a song for him to paint in the future.
