MORE Indie Invaders
  • Amy Winehouse has started a record label called Lioness Records and her first signing is her 13 year old god-daughter named Dionne Bromfield. Winehouse has invested nearly 1 million dollars into the release by sending Bromfield to vocal lessons and bringing artists such as Lady Gaga and Lamar to sing on the album. (Guardian)
  • AFI who entered the studio with producer David Bottrill has decided to move on and record with Joe McGrath (Morrissey). Nearly everything about the eight full-length from AFI has been shrouded in mystery according to Buzznet, but frontman Davey Havok recently spoke to Billboard and said this: “The songs, for me, seem a little bit more refined and defined—a bit more straightforward,” AFI frontman Davey Havok says of his groups first album in three years. “Theyre not punk rock songs like from one of our early-90s records, but theres more rock-leaning on this album.” (Buzznet)
  • If you haven’t already noticed, YouTube is ‘muting’ video clips that feature “unauthorized” songs. YouTube users are up in arms at the news, accusing the video-sharing website of betraying its fans in order to appease the music industry according to the Telegraph. Some technology experts warn that YouTube’s long term future could be in jeopardy if they continue to alienate their users. On a funnier note, “YouTube could bring back a new era in silent pictures,” said Greg Sandoval, a correspondent for Cnet. (Telegraph)
  • More acts may abandon major music labels. Ryan Adams may leave Lost Highway Records as his own label said that a major-label deal is probably a bit restrictive for Ryan and that he’d be better served by being independent. Pearl Jam didn’t re-up the album-by-album deal with J Records that they signed in 2004 and will most likely self-release its next studio album. Metallica’s contract ended with Warner Brothers in September and Lars Ulrich hinted that the band may do things themselves. Lastly, 50 Cent explicitly stated he plans to go “Free agent” when he fulfills his contract with Interscope in February. (Billboard)
