Three major labels are taking VKontakte, a Russian social-network (and the website where New Found Glory's recent single leaked), to court over piracy.
A judge in arbitration court for the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region decided on Monday to consolidate separate complaints from Sony Music Russia, Universal Music Russia and Warner Music U.K. into one case against VKontakte, which boasts 142 million global users and is Russia's second most popular website. VK openly allows users to upload copyrighted music and videos to their profiles, but the site has yet to secure licensing deals with rights holders, despite numerous warnings from regulators. The labels want VK to pay damages and...

The Buffalo News did not like Brand New at Edgefest.
Wow. I’ll go out on a limb here and suggest that Brand New is one of the worst bands I’ve ever seen in decades of concert attendance. Horribly out of tune, dedicatedly dirge-dedicated, apparently hostile to anything resembling a melody, and, one would guess, comfortable with the idea of blending emo, metal, hardcore, and punk with an ear for the atonal, the group offered a set that just didn’t seem to want to end. It did, eventually.

“But on this one they’re like, ‘Fuck you guys, you’re not saving anything. This record blows’. I’ve read some pretty funny reviews that are obviously like, ‘Fuck those guys, they suck’.

She & Him's Columbia Records debut will be a cover album titled Classics.
She & Him recorded the album live, allowing a spontaneity that captured the spirit of the songs in their truest form. Ward exercised his acute ear for string arrangements, co-arranging a full 20-piece orchestra. The result unfurls as thirteen classic cuts as heartbreaking as they are uplifting.
