New York Daily News Not a Fan of Nate Ruess
The New York Daily News gave Nate Ruess' album zero stars and thinks his vocals could be used to torture people. Um.
But Lambert’s rich timbre and wry character make his grand arcs a joy to hear, while the screech and whine in Ruess’ voice could be adapted by CIA interrogators. Repeated exposure to its aching strain could make even the most hardened terrorist crack.
Are We in A Festival Bubble?
Stephen Heyman, writing for the New York Times, about the possibilities we're in a festival bubble.
An informal survey of headliners at 20 of this summer’s large music festival shows just how few headliners there are to go around. Overlapping is common; 70 percent of the festivals are headlined by either Florence and the Machine, Muse or the Swedish D.J. Avicii. Also noteworthy is just how old many of the headlining artists are. At Glastonbury, top billing goes to Kanye West, 38; the Foo Fighters (fronted by Dave Grohl, 46) and The Who (whose surviving original members are now in their 70s). Aging establishment acts also are appearing at festivals once distinguished by their “alternative”...

AP.net Interview: mewithoutYou
We recently spoke with Aaron Weiss about mewithoutYou's new album, Pale Horses, which releases this week. Check it out here.
Our society is well aware of this idea that the world is going to end. We all know that we’re going to die. We all know that there’s violence and horrible suffering. I didn’t think it was honest to keep on writing about positive things and happy things, not that that’s all I did, but I did try and steer the ship in that direction so that the final message was overall an uplifting one. I actually still think that’s the case, and I still do want someone listening to our new songs to be on the whole uplifted, but I don’t know that I have the capacity to do...

Long Knives, Count Your Lucky Stars' most recent signing, are putting out a split with Dowsing, Cardboard Swords, and Sinai Vessel next month. In the replies you can hear their contribution. "Thaw" is a three and a half minute upbeat emo song that might remind you a bit of of bands like Rainer Maria (maybe it's just the name) or Jejune with its male/female harmonies. It proves, if nothing else, that Long Knives will be a band to watch out for. The split is up for preorder, if you like what you hear.

‘Be the Color of Lightning’
Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy has penned a letter to his sons for Time Magazine's 'Letters from Dad' feature:
Boys: always take the high road, even when the low road seems easier or simpler. Let your kindness radiate and defend those who cannot defend themselves. Be yourself when it is not popular to be. Love your friends not in spite of their flaws but because of them. Bronx, I remember once asking you what your favorite color was and you said, “Red, black and the color of lightning.” Never let the world take away your creativity and divergent thinking. Be the color of lighting, be wild, and always laugh a lot. Never forget who you are.

Why Epic Records Passed on The Clash in 1977
Dangerous Minds uncovered a letter from Epic Records A&R exec Bruce Harris explaining to a fan why he had passed on bringing The Clash to America. Complaining about production was so 1977.
Also, it is important to note that the Clash’s album for all its quality (which is evident in the overwhelming lyrics, the blistering music and the feverish performance) is not at all matched by the level of production which is an enormous drawback. The band’s live performance is many times better than what is on this record and one has to question the artistic integrity of creating an inferior sounding album. It’s not a valid artistic judgement to say that the production is deliberately shoddy...
