Songkick’s “Battle Of The Bands” Gives Internet-Beloved Artists A Chance To Shine

The new music-recommendation service Songkick–which sends out e-mail alerts to users when their favorite artists come to town, and uses a recommendation engine to tell its users about “similar artists” being out on tour–has developed a Battle Of The Bands application, which is sort of like Googlefight with the added nebulousness of using data…

Trent Reznor Sez Radiohead Didn’t Really <i>Mean It</i> (At Least Enough To Satisfy Him)

Not content to sit back and mentally count the windfall from the first-week sales of his self-released opus Ghosts I-IV, Trent Reznor now has some words for Thom, Johnny, the bald one I always identified with, and the other two; since Trent’s venture into online retail was so successful and offered higher-quality audio downloads (as…

Canada adds another giant outdoor music festival thingee to 2008’s pile; running from July 25 to 27, the British Columbia-area Pemberton Festival will feature “bands such as Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails and the Tragically Hip.” Curse you, CanCon guidelines.

Trent Reznor: (Purportedly) Getting That Paper

So the Nine Inch Nails frontman has released the first-week sales figures for Ghosts I-IV, the multiple-format instrumental album he self-released just two Sundays ago via his Web site. Given that the $300 super-mega-deluxe edition sold out its 2,500 copy pressing by the following Tuesday, even with a server snafu or twelve, it was clear…

NIN Goes YouTube (Perhaps With Your Help?)

Perez Hilton Gives The Stink Eye To Thom And Trent As Readers Line Up To Be First!!!!1!! To Smack Him Down

Whoops, I lied! Sorry. Looks like future failed A&R kingpin Perez Hilton has gone and voiced his concerns about the timeliness rumored Lollapalooza headliners Nine Inch Nails and Radiohead with his usual stinging brevity. (Total word count: 23. Total comments thus far: like, a lot.) But if you were expecting Perez’s loyal army of whatever-the-hell-you-call-people-who-read-Perez-Hilton…

News That Radiohead And Nine Inch Nails May Be Headlining Lollapalooza Prompts More Comment-Section Humorlessness Than Ever

Chicago Tribune music critic Greg Kot broke the news that Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails are probably headlining this year’s edition of Lollapalooza on his blog, and the comment-section posturers were out in full force, hoping to let people know that they were, in fact, anonymously better than everyone else. To wit: “I paid $2…

Trent Reznor Hoping That Internet May Be Moved To Actually Shell Out Money For Music

Trent Reznor released the Nine Inch Nails album that he’s been hinting at on his blog tonight, a 36-track instrumental collection titled Ghosts I-IV, which Reznor describes as “music for daydreams” and which he recorded last year. Like the Saul Williams collaboration that Reznor helped bring to market a few months back, people can obtain…

Does a cryptic blog entry marked “2 Weeks” on the Nine Inch Nails website mean that Trent Reznor is just 13 9 (!) days from “pulling a Radiohead”? Or does it really mean “two weeks until I can finally buy Nerf Herder IV”?

We Read The Comments On Trent Reznor’s “Ha Ha, TVT Is Toast” Post So You Don’t Have To

Especially because there are, at present, 596 responses to the cryptic post above, which Reznor posted last night, shortly after the news of his former label’s imminent doom broke. And who wants to slog through a bunch of Internet fanboys/fangirls’ incoherent ravings when there’s someone around who’s not only willing to do so, but willing…

Angry (Or Old) (White) Dudes Believe Grammys Controlled By Other (Old) (White) Dudes

Following last week’s Grammy nominations, two rockers, Trent Reznor and Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy, have taken to their blogs to blast the nominating body for being run at the whim of “fifty-year-old white men” and “out of touch old men.” The hell you say! Still, while not exactly a new criticism of the…

Sure, everyone remembers Prince getting that shoutout in the Pretty Hate Machine liner notes, and but these pop-funky Nine Inch Nails demos are a glimpse of how an alternate universe Trent Reznor could have easily become a pale PA cousin to Stevie B.

How to endear yourself to your fanbase while threatening your own retirement prospects: encourage them to pirate your work until such time as physical CDs become less costly.

Trent Reznor Does Not Want You To Pay A Lot For This CD

We’re pretty sure that Trent Reznor will be parting ways with the entire major-label structure the millisecond his contract says he can. The latest piece of evidence pointing to this theory comes from his blog:

As the climate grows more and more desperate for record labels, their answer to their mostly self-inflicted wounds…
