It is unlikely that federal regulators will approve a proposed merger between the XM and Sirius satellite radio companies.

Also….

Apple soars with record profit

and….

Apple CEO Steve Jobs who’s practises are currently being investigated by the SEC is also against the subscription model for digital services. He says people don’t want to rent music, they want to buy it. Of course they do. Who wants to rent a track?

Maroon 5 have the #1 Single on ITunes. Its nice to see great songs rise to the TOP.

NYC based The Upwelling are one of the rare bands that create art for art’s sake. Making them even more rare is how they successfully avoid the trappings of self-indulgence and are instead inventive, inspired and most importantly- listenable. Early comparisons have been made to Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Secret Machines, Spiritualized and more. They won Spin.com’s “Artist of the Year” in the “Unsigned Band” category, toured the UK with All-American Rejects, in addition to the current Third Eye Blind dates. The band recently acquired the tour with Third Eye Blind after frontman Stephan Jenkins got a copy of the album from a friend and reached out to the band, inviting them on the road. They were also the first unsigned band on Virgin Megastore’s national retail campaign “Virgin Recommends” and won Karma Productions Band of the Year Sonic Bids Ireland Tour.

“The band mixes the stoned-out moods of Dark Side of the Moon with the more grandiose orchestral manuevers of latter-day space rockers Spiritualized and Secret Machines, and Ari’s powerful falsetto would put Chris Martin to shame . . . “ says Spin.

Expressing concern about the “growing public outrage” over the use of such words in rap lyrics, Simmons said the words “bitch,””ho” and “ni***” should be considered “extreme curse words.”

According to sources Steve Jobs is working hard to force the major labels to follow EMI’s lead and go DRM free. In reality, no one knows the outcome of releasing music DRM FREE. It could be the DEATH SPIRAL.
