Dashboard Confessional are currently zigzagging the states on a seemingly mismatched co-headlining tour with Third Eye Blind. Consistently at each stop, Dashboard has been said to steal the show, and the tourís stop in Austin was no exception.

HypeBot has a good rundown on the current state of the music industry. Vinyl continues to do really well.
If you add in the new ways of looking at albums in the digital domain (track equivalent albums = 10 and stream equivalent albums = 1500), total album sales are actually up 14% over last year at this time.

The Huffington Post is reporting that Jackie Fuchs, who played bass for The Runaways from 1975 to 1977 under the name Jackie Fox, was raped by band manager and producer Kim Fowley. The link contains pretty graphic depictions.

Modest Mouse's Isaac Brock did an interview in Poland in which he had some pretty messed up things to say about Portland -- his current hometown (disclosure: and where I've lived most of my life). Pretty sure this means he's going to leave us for the San Antonio Spurs too.
Portland is weird, but it's kind of a crappy weird. It is the most vagrant-ridden [city]óit's really fuckin' up my liberal mind. I'm just like, what a collection of human turds.

Words canít describe how good it feels to be back, so Iíll just let the music do that instead. Itís been a crazy few years for all of us in one way or another, but with this much needed break and a new lease on life Sum 41 is back and stronger and more excited than we have been in a long time. Itís time to make a fucking great record!

David Greenwald, writing for The Oregonian, about the creation of Portland's first vinyl plant:
At every turn, Cascade had challenges: no one's making new presses, which meant tracking down 40-year-old or older gear -- and competing for it with existing plants and a handful of other newcomers.

In a recent interview, Father John Misty says he's already completed writing on the follow up to this year's excellent I Love You, Honeybear, and that the album "isn't about love." You can watch the interview in the replies.
I feel like writing about intimacy afforded me a real unexpected level of clarity and kind of turning that perspective outward, that's essentially what the next album is all about.

The BBC, reporting on how in Finland you can now get some money back for shitty live performances:
A landmark decision by the country's Consumer Disputes Board means music fans can ask for their money back if an artist's performance is well below what they reasonably expected, the national broadcaster Yle reports. It follows a complaint by a Chuck Berry fan, who saw the rock and roll pioneer perform in Helsinki in 2013. Berry, who is now 88 years old, seemed unwell during the concert, and apologised to fans while on stage. The consumer body decided that the event's organiser should refund 50% of the ticket price.

We spoke with U.K. breakout Wolf Alice about their debut album, My Love Is Cool. Check out the interview here.
Weíre four weirdos from North London who spent a good two years playing everywhere trying to get the fine folk of England to pay attention to us, so itís blowing our minds that weíve got the chance to do that over in the U.S.A. too. The U.S. crowds are so, so, so much fun. People yell stuff like good restaurants to check out or just welcome you to the city DURING the breaks between songs. Itís how I imagine American football games to be, full of team spirit and chanting. A good crowd at a show in the U.S. can be like getting hit with a sledgehammer and totally elevates the vibe.

Ethan Kaplan, writing for TechCrunch, on how the music industry could move toward a service model.
The problem? The music industry is still organized to support the traditional retail and digital sales cycle. As subscription services become the dominant source of revenue for recorded music, the entire business will have to shift gears to survive.

Itís no longer about pre-sales and Week 1, itís about nurturing an audience month-over-month to drive loyalty and increase returns on a streaming service platform. All of the promotion dollars and methods to support Week 1 have to be retooled for a longer cycle, up to 6 months in many cases.

Jonathan Ford, writing for the Financial Times, on how Taylor Swift is fighting the wrong part of the music industry.
Rather than agonise about Spotifyís model, artists might do better to direct some pointed questions closer to home if they really want to understand why their royalty cheques are so small. The economics of the music business have changed vastly in recent years. The deals they have with the music labels have not.

It is a point highlighted in a recent report from EY, the professional services firm, and the French record label industry association SNEP, which looked at where streaming revenues end up. What this showed is that while artists and songwriters share about 17...

Lambgoat is reporting that Francis Mark of From Autumn to Ashes was arrested on drug charges that led to the cancellation of their tour.
On June 29, Mark, age 32, was allegedly sentenced in Michigan for an offense of "maintaining a drug house." While he was not sent to prison, Mark appears to have received a year of probation. As such, travel restrictions likely apply, leaving Mark unable to continue touring for the foreseeable future.
