The Verge did a blind test to see what sounded better: Apple Music, Tidal, or Spotify:
The results were very, very surprising to me. It was generally random across the board, though Spotify fared slightly worse than Apple Music and Tidal overall. In roughly 29 percent of the tests, subjects couldnít tell any notable difference at all. Tidal ó which wants you to pay more for lossless quality ó most definitely didnít take the crown, and in several cases, subjects actually identified it as the worst-sounding of the three.

I agree with Marco Arment's take:
If you need to try really hard to identify whether thereís any difference at all, it probably doesnít matter. Invest your energy and...

I recently spoke with Jarrod Gorbel of Night Terrors of 1927 (and formerly of The Honorary Title) about his new songs, falling out of love with the music industry, and more. Check it out here.
I started to doubt my abilities. Also, being in a band was really stressful and I wanted to try and do things by myself. But left to my own devices, I just go inward and get really sad. Itís a downward spiral. So I thought, ďWell, maybe musicís not for me.Ē

John Feldmann of Goldfinger recently talked with Fuse:
I don't know where the joy would be for me. It can't really be the money or the success or the possible tour that would come after. If I was to do a Goldfinger album it would really just be me writing all of it and producing all of it and then bringing in one or two of the guys to play on top of it and that just doesn't really feel like a Goldfinger record. I can't imagine seeing the studio with those dudes hashing out what I do every day with other artists. When other artists come in they trust me. And if I really take a stand for something, the artist typically listens to me, like, "Okay, John's got experience, John has had a lot...

We recently spoke with Mike Shinoda about the return of Fort Minor, as well as the past and future of Linkin Park. Check out the interview here.
I kind of donít care where and if [Fort Minor] fits in. For me, trends will come and go. Rap music right now is in a really exciting place... Thereís a lot of room for individual, unique voices. Iím excited for what thatís going to develop into in the coming years. My role in it isnít to be a part of any movement, or a part of anything at all. I just make what I make. If people dig it, then they dig it.

Last month, we introduced you to new Roadrunner Records signees More to Monroe. While the video we premiered is indicative of the post-hardcore stylings you'll find on their upcoming EP, Appalachia (out September 15th), the band also has a softer side. Head to the replies to watch the quartet perform a stripped-down cover of The 1975's "Sex."

Altoona, PA's Post Season are releasing a split with fellow pop-punkers Such a Mess, titled Greetings From, on August 28th through Common Ground Records. Head to the replies to watch a lyric video for a new song titled "Backroads." Boasting more hooks than your grandad's tackle box, the group fits in perfectly alongside the new crop of pop punk.

Rivers Cuomo of Weezer talked with Vulture about how that TV show sorta based on his life won't end up happening after-all.
'DeTour' did not get picked up. So that whole chapter is closed. Itís weird; in music if you make an album and your label decides not to put it out, you can bring it to another label and sometimes it can be a big success. At least it gets out. In TV, Iíve learned, itís not like that. The pilot was made, completely finished, and we canít show it to anybody! No one will ever see it. Itís a huge waste of money.
