D.A Wallach, writing on Medium.
The problem is simply that no central database exists to keep track of information about music. Specifically, there are two types of information about a piece of music that are critically important: who made it and who owns the rights to it. Right now, this information is fiendishly difficult to track down, to the great detriment of artists, music services and consumers alike.

Decentralized, open-source, global cyryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ripple (full disclosure: I am an investor in Ripple Labs, which is developing this currency) offer a model for how we might address this bedeviling status quo. By applying the technical breakthroughs of...

Sal Nunziato, writing for the New York Times, explaining why the "suits" were good for the music industry. Going to say I disagree with the premise here.
But maybe this music shouldn’t be heard. The Internet has enabled anyone with a computer, a kazoo and an untuned guitar to flood the market, no matter how horrible or simply unready the music is. This devalues the great music that is truly worthy of being heard, promoted and sold. And it is much more than just an endless supply of choices. The Internet has become a forum for all, regardless of talent. Anyone can be a writer. Anyone with GarageBand can make a record.

Green Day will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015.
Only a handful of bands get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the first year they're eligible these days. When Billie Joe Armstrong learned that Green Day were one of them, he could barely process the news. "I had to go for a walk," he says. "I wound up at this cafe and I sat down and my son met up with me. I told him and he was like, 'Oh my God. No way.' It just took some time to sink in. We're in incredible company and I'm still trying to make sense of this. It's just incredible."

Read our review with indie/folk singer-songwriter yellowbirddd, who also serves as Allison Weiss' bassist. We're still streaming his new album, CENTINELA.
I was driving. It happened so fast. One moment, I was driving carefully - conditions were not great - the next moment, I felt the van had lost control, and the next thing I knew we were going down into the median ditch and the van started to roll. Then we landed upright and I felt the cold wind coming in, and we immediately made sure everyone was okay.

Skinny Puppy has sent an invoice for $666k to the US Government for using their songs to torture prisoners.
A former Guantanamo guard allegedly contacted the band to let them know their songs were being used as torture tools against detainees, and Skinny Puppy have since gotten the advice of lawyers who believe they have a good case against the U.S. government.

The Movielife are reuniting.
Our plan is to start at Irving Plaza and go from there. There are pieces of land on this planet that we want to bring our gear onto and play on. I don’t think the UK would allow us to reunite and not come visit them. I think the hatred and frustration would implode the whole country, so we’re definitely going to come over there, I think. I mean, I’d like to. Brandon and I are the two biggest Anglophiles in the band, so the two of us definitely want to visit.
