Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie opens up about Tidal, Indiana, and divorce in an interview with The Daily Beast.
“If I had been Jay Z, I would have brought out ten artists that were underground or independent and said, ‘These are the people who are struggling to make a living in today’s music industry. Whereas this competitor streaming site pays this person 15 cents for X amount of streams, that same amount of streams on my site, on Tidal, will pay that artist this much,’” Gibbard says. “I think they totally blew it by bringing out a bunch of millionaires and billionaires and propping them up onstage and then having them all complain about not being paid.”

Rolling Stone recently sat down with Ben Gibbard to talk about his work on Foo Fighters Sonic Highways album.
For me, seeing bands not only being great but also humble and acceptable – that's something that's always been built into the ethic and aesthetic of this city. It doesn't matter how famous you get outside of Seattle; you can't come back and act like an asshole "rock star." If you move to New York or Los Angeles or maybe Nashville, you could go out and be like, "That's a super famous rock star. That's just how he acts." But Seattle doesn't play that shit.

Death Cab for Cutie talked with Stereogum about preparing for their final album with Chris Walla.
When we finished the last record he had actually suggested that maybe we work with an outside person the next time, just as a way to shake things up. He’s produced all of our albums, so he’s always kind of had the right of first refusal anyway. When we got started on this record he just sort of resumed the producer role, but as we got a little further into the process he was like, “Well, maybe I’m not the best guy for this record,” and that was really fine. It wasn’t like we suddenly had the rug pulled out from under us or anything. We weren’t suddenly in a state of free fall.

Chris Walla has left Death Cab for Cutie.
Short version: I’m leaving Death Cab for Cutie. My last show with the band will be September 13, 2014, at the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC. I hope you guys can make it. Longer version: I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple. I will miss being a quarter of this band, and will support whatever course Death Cab for Cutie chooses from here. I am profoundly grateful to Ben, Nick, and Jason, for the experiences that define my adult life. Truly grateful, beyond words. Thank you.

Read my review and check out my photos of Day 2 of the Boston Calling Music Festival, which featured performances from Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Frank Turner and more.
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls may have put on the best performance of Boston Calling. The pace was set immediately as they opened with "Photosynthesis," in which Turner wailed on his trusty acoustic and guitarist Ben Lloyd ripped a solo on the electric mandolin. It was Turner's 1,568th show, as he proudly told the audience, but his boundless energy (perhaps owed to his hardcore roots) made it feel one-of-a-kind.

Salon has posted an article looking at the reaction some fans of The Postal Service had upon learning that the opening act for their recent tour was Big Freedia. The title of the article, "White music fans are afraid of difference: When Postal Service fans get aggressively upset over a black opening act, that's evidence of a bigger problem," may turn some readers off -- but the article is definitely worth the read and discussion.
Maybe the most pissed and confounded Twitter responders to Big Freedia’s show hate rap, hip-hop and butts. But I bet they don’t. They appear to be white people mostly in their late 20s like me, and I bet they consume all kinds of music. But they were walking...
