A pretty cool new app called Keezy was released today.
It's a deceptively simple app. You have eight buttons, each of which can record a short sound clip. To create a clip you sing, scream, beatbox and spit into your iPhone's microphone. You mix and match the samples over one another, using the loops like a drum machine to create killer beats and melodies. A slider on-screen allows you to delete or undo individual clips.

Al Morris (Murphy's Law and Unholy Alliance) has created an iPhone app called "Mosh Pit."
Mosh Pit is a bit of mix of game, music platform and a virtual world entertainment device. The game angle is you set off your characters to create a 'total mosh'; meaning you get your 'moshnoids' to complete their routines which include stage diving, crowd surfing, jump in, circle pit, wall to wall as I call it, then finally a quick free style before jumping out.

Apple has announced that music fans have purchased and downloaded more than 25 billion songs from the iTunes Store. Kind of related: yesterday I was trying to find stats about iTunes charts when I was writing up this commentary, and found this cool site that lets you search for songs that have been on the charts and get all kinds of information about them.

The new (and major update) iTunes 11 has been released today.
Jason Tate on 11/29/12 - 11:29 AM
Update: Apple has announced the iPhone 5. Pre-orders being Friday, with the phone shipping on September 21st. iOS6 will be released to the public on September 19th, and iTunes 11 will arrive in late October. The iPod nano and iPod Touch also received an update.

Apple is holding a media event today at 1 PM EST/10 AM PST to apparently announce the iPhone 5, a new line of iPods, iTunes 11, and maybe the rumored iPad Mini. Here's a list of live blogs (as well as our official Apple thread) that you can follow to keep up with the announcements. What are you expecting and/or hoping Apple to announce?

The Wall Street Journal reported recently that Apple is in talks to license music with the intention of creating an online music streaming platform that would be targeted to compete with Pandora. In fact, Pandora, which recently became a publicly traded company, has seen its shares fall a pretty significant amount over the past week as the rumor about Apple's involvement in the online radio market has spread.

Any rumor about Apple playing a new hand in the music industry has to be taken seriously, which explains the reflex reaction of Pandora's stock drop. Apple already has what amounts to the world's largest record store in the form of iTunes, which sells more music than any other...

I am trying to decide if this new "vinyl tap" app for the iPad is the dumbest - or coolest - thing I've seen in a while. I feel like there's no middle ground. Basically, it takes your music library ... and makes it seem like you're playing it on a record player. On your iPad? I ... yeah, I dunno.

Should iTunes have to pay royalties every time a 30 second sample is played? Seems that's what the music industry wants.

Aiden's new iPhone application was recently denied from the the iPhone App Store for "objectionable content." The band has written an open letter to Apple, which you can read below.
From AidenDear Apple,

What can I really say that Trent Reznor hasn't? "I want to fuck you like an animal?" Oh wait, he said that. "I am a big man and I have a big gun. Got me a big olí dick and I like to have fun, held it against your forehead, I'll make you suck it, maybe I'll put a hole in your head, you know, just for the fuck of it." Yeah, he said that, too, all on a record called The Downward Spiral. I have purchased that album five times in my life. I first got it on Cassette when it came out in 1994,...
