AEG suffers knock back in Electric Forest battle
Live giant AEG Live has received a knock-back in a legal battle with the owners of the site of the American music festival Electric Forest, in which the live giant now has an interest after buying the event's co-promoter Madison House Presents earlier this month.

As previously reported, this dispute centres on a 20 year lease that Madison House Presents secured to host its annual festival at a resort in Oceana County. That agreement was with a company called Progressive Resorts which experienced financial problems last year basically resulting in ownership of the site being transferred to two new companies, Antler Bar Amusements and Double JJ PropCo, which now claim that the change in ownership renders the two decade lease void.

For their part, AEG and Madison House Presents argue that the new owners of the festival site bought Progressive Resort's liabilities, and therefore the lease agreement should stand. The two parties also argue that they were not made aware that the change in ownership finalised last November would affect their lease until late January, by which time the 2014 edition of Electric Forest was already in production.

Of course, what makes this story all the more interesting is that it's been widely reported that SFX, another significant player in the US live space, has an interest in one of the two companies that now owns the Electric Forest site. And the other promoter of the festival, Live Nation ally Insomniac Events, has previously said: "[This dispute] sounds like a case of sour grapes - Madison House chose AEG as their partner over SFX, and now SFX is seeking to punish us".

Since becoming involved in the squabble, AEG has filed a motion for intervention (allowing it to be directly involved in the case as a plaintiff), a temporary restraining order against Antler Bar Amusements and Double JJ PropCo, and a preliminary injunction in favour of the live giant and its business partners in Electric Forest. But Judge Terrence R Thomas in the Oceana County Court denied the first of those requests this week.

Not that that means this legal squabble is over by any means, and much confusion remains about the case, and the nature of the lease AEG and Madison House Presents are trying to enforce. Meanwhile the two companies insist that, whatever happens, this year's Electric Forest festival in June will go ahead.

Man jailed for fake 1D bomb threat
Who hasn't fantasised about blowing up a One Direction concert? (Actually I haven't, and I'm kinda worried that you subconsciously nodded while reading that sentence.) But I think it's fair to say most of us wouldn't be stupid enough to actually phone in a bomb threat.

But one William H Klein of Pennsylvania did just that last July, calling the offices of the Hersheypark Stadium to say: "If One Direction plays tomorrow, the stadium will blow up". And while the event did still go ahead, security had to be stepped up at the venue, with a full bomb sweep of the site and all fans' bags being searched on entry.

Prosecutors tracked the fake bomb threat to a payphone, and from there CCTV footage showed Klein making the call. He was jailed for eight months for making the threat.

Kate Tempest signs to Big Dada, details LP
Ninja Tune's Big Dada label fam has initiated spoken word/rap artist and sometime playwright/poet/novelist Kate Tempest.

Tempest will release her first LP, a twelve track narrative titled 'Everybody Down', on 19 May, having worked with MIA/Hot Chip collaborator Dan Carey as sole producer. Stream (or download at no cost by joining the Kate Tempest mailing list) one of its tracks, 'Lonely Daze', now.

New deals and appointments at Believe
Believe Digital announced a number of new label deals yesterday, confirming it is now working with Canada's Nettwerk Music Group in all territories outside North America and the British Isles, eclectic London-label Mr Bongo in all markets outside France, and with world music specialists World Circuit everywhere outside North America.

Also with newly confirmed deals are indie distributor and publisher Wienerworld, which will work with Believe worldwide, and dance label Toolroom Records, which will use Believe's video distribution services.

The new deals come as the digital distribution and marketing firm announces two new recruits, namely James Farrelly, previously at the Association Of Independent Music, who becomes Trade Marketing Manager in the UK, and former Coop Music Label Manager Ed Pearson who becomes Marketing Manager for Believe Recordings.

Universal Music Group revenues boosted by digital in 2013
Universal Music Group owner Vivendi has confirmed it will "focus on its media and content activities" to take advantage of the growing digital marketplace, after announcing a 9.7% fall in net income year-on-year for 2013. The French conglom has been withdrawing from its other key area of business - telecommunications - for quite some time.

Publishing its annual results, Vivendi said that its music company performed well, with revenues up 12.8% to 4.9 billion euros (£4 billion) year-on-year in 2013. The continued decline in physical music sales was offset by a growth in digital revenues, which accounted for over 50% of sales income for the first time. Meanwhile in the digital domain, subscription and streaming revenue also grew by more than 75% in 2013.

The company said that its biggest sellers of last year were Eminem, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga, Drake, Robin Thicke and French-language artist Stromae

Commenting on Vivendi's new strategy, chairman of the management board Jean-François Dubos said: "Vivendi has decided to focus on its media and content activities, which hold leading positions and are taking advantage of the growing digital market".

--------------------------------------------------

Warner Music Japan CEO Kei Ishizaka to retire
Warner Music Japan's Chairman and CEO Kei Ishizaka has announced his retirement.

Having worked in the Japanese music industry for 46 years, working at EMI for 26 and also spending time at Universal Music before joining Warner Music Japan in 2011, he will step down on 1 Apr, though will remain linked to the company as its Honorary Chairman until October.

Announcing his departure, Ishizaka said: "It has been a true honour to oversee Warner Music Japan for the past two and a half years. It is a company with a rich history and a tireless devotion to serving its artists. I am proud of all we have accomplished in building Warner Music Japan's reputation as a progressive home for outstanding artists, as well as laying the foundation for the company's growth for many years to come".

An announcement about Ishizaka's replacement is expected in the new few weeks.

SFX buys React Presents
If you're the sort of person who likes to read about eeeeeeeeee-deeeeeeee-em pusher SFX buying up yet more independent festival promoters, then read on. Because SFX has bought up yet another independent festival promoter. This time it's Chicago-based live event maker React Presents, behind, amongst other things, the Spring Awakening and Summer Set festivals.

Confirming the deal, React co-founder Jeff Callahan said: "After years of being independent festival and concert promoters in the Midwest, we are very exited to join the SFX family. We feel this strategic partnership with SFX Entertainment and its team of like-minded pioneers will make for a massive global company".

While SFX's top man Robert FX Sillerman said: "React Presents enhances the nationwide network of promoters for SFX and brings two new and highly successful festivals into our US repertoire. React Presents is a dominant player in the Midwest, so it was strategically important for us to join forces. React's ability to put together and promote so many quality productions that excite so many fans will greatly add to our success and growth".

Beats brings in a gang of one to speak to the artist community
Beats Music has appointed Dave Allen, formerly of Gang Of Four, and recently vocal on the music industry's digital dilemmas, as an Artist Advocate. His role will be to represent within Beats and to speak for the digital firm to the artist community, especially those musicians concerned about the royalties paid out by streaming platforms.

Admitting that he'd first approached Allen after the bassist wrote a response to criticism of Spotify by the likes of Thom Yorke and David Byrne, Beats chief Ian Rogers told Billboard: "We want to be proactive, rather than reactive, in the discussion of where streaming services sit at the intersection of artists and fans. As an artist, label owner, and thought leader, there isn't anyone better than Dave to lead the conversation and push us internally to lead the charge instead of follow".

In a blog post on the Beats website, Allen said of his new role: "In short I will act as an ambassador for Beats Music, reaching out to artists and the recorded music industry to find common ground and debate real issues and real problems, problems that can hopefully be solved without resorting to rhetoric that inflames rather than assuages doubts".

This will involve writing and speaking on digital music issues, as he already has been, adding that he "will also continue to expand my reach to a broader audience as a LinkedIn Influencer". So that's something to look forward to.

In related news, and as previously reported, CMU has teamed up with artist and producer Dan Le Sac to survey the UK artist community on all things digital ahead of this year's Great Escape. We'll be speaking to artists on various digital matters over the next two months, and will present the findings during Global Digital Markets, a half-day convention strand taking place at TGE this year. To get into that - and the rest of the TGE convention and festival - at the special early bird rate of £145, you need to buy your delegates pass this week at this link.

  Approved: Zella Day
A flower child of the Arizona mountains, Zella Day has so far made a slight splash with a simply 'nice' take on The White Stripes' 'Seven Nation Army' and 2013's similarly vanilla single, 'No Sleep To Dream'.

But now signed to young imprint B3SCI alongside hot and sticky XL acquisitions Jungle, her new track 'Sweet Ophelia' signals a sea change in her style and image, from cherry pie prairie girl to LA-schooled popstar with something more to say.

And whilst it hitchhikes brazenly on the highway-to-Lana-Del-Rey, 'Sweet Ophelia' is an undeniably sleek ride, a 'riches to rags' road song racing over sticky snare rhythms and winding xylo bars towards its focal horizon; that soaring main hook.

Neil Young planning another book
Neil Young is writing a book about his love of cars, with some stories about his music and life, hand-drawn artwork, and thoughts on politics and the world's workings stuck on the side.

Though without a title at this juncture, the new book will form Young's first tome since his best-selling memoir of 2012, 'Waging Heavy Peace'. Its publisher in the US, Penguin Random House imprint New Rider, which put out the earlier book too, describes the new one as an "eclectic amalgam".

Fightstar come off hiatus as Charlie Simpson masters solo LP
Charlie 'McSpoilsport' Simpson's serious rock group Fightstar have been lured out of semi-retirement by Jägermeister. The band, who confirmed a vague 'hiatus' in 2010, have now gone back into the studio to do-over their 2009 single, 'Follow Me Into The Darkness', which will soundtrack the alcohol brand's first UK TV ad.

Meanwhile, Fightstar are also due to start writing again once Simpson is done promoting his second solo LP, which though almost mastered is still TBC.

They say as one: "We always strive to bring a strong cinematic quality to our music and 'Follow Me Into The Darkness' is a prime example of us creating film score music for films that only existed in our minds. It's been a pleasure to rework this track and find a visual home for it alongside this extraordinarily filmic and beautifully crafted ad".

So please all, crowd round, do a shot (only one, and only adults) and look at 40 seconds' worth of said ad, which will debut in full from 5 Mar.

Oasis reissues confirmed
As an extra special treat for their ever faithful fanbase, Oasis are re-releasing some old records with plenty of extra rarity shizzle thrown in for good measure.

There'll be a single re-release. And an album re-release. And another album re-release. And another album re-release.

And as an extra special treat for humanity at large NO NEW MATERIAL.

So exciting. And to add to the excitement, someone threw together a 33 second long collection of clips for us to look at. Here it is, look. Are you looking?

Coldplay bump out new song
Coldplay have a new song out. Weren't expecting that, were you? They're like a modern day Beyonce.

The atmospheric song, called 'Midnight', sounds a bit like Bon Iver circa 2011, which is a bit of a shift in sound for the band. It's alright, actually. There you go, naysayers. Coldplay did another alright song. The other one is 'Square One', if you were wondering.

Anyway, Coldplay will be performing at the SXSW edition of the iTunes Festival next month. That's a while away though, and right now there's a new video to watch and song to listen to, so I'd concern myself with those, if I were you.

Karl Hyde and Brian Eno collaborate on LP
A pair of electronica greats at either end of the genre, Brian Eno and Underworld's Karl Hyde, have convened to make a two-way LP titled 'Someday World'. Released 5 May by way of Warp, its nine songs are all composed and executed by both Eno and Hyde, with Eno co-producing throughout with newcomer Fred Gibson. It includes spots from guest musicians like Coldplay's Will Champion and his wife Marianna, Roxy Music's Andy Mackay, soul singer Don E, and Brian's actual daughter Darla.

Karl Hyde says of his and Eno's experience: "It's a bit like being nine years old again. You have no idea what you've just been given, the record button has been pressed and you're on. And then these unlikely patterns start to happen. The biggest surprise was discovering we both had a love of afrobeat, cyclical music based in live playing. When Brian played me these early tracks it was, 'Oh my god, this is home! Can I borrow a guitar?'"

Likening the album's architecture to a series of building blocks, Brian adds: "A lot of the constructions on the album were deliberately irregular and awkward. I had a big collection of 'beginnings' sitting around waiting for something to galvanise them into life, to make them more than just 'experiments'. That something turned out to be Karl Hyde".

Ah, how nice. Continue your 'Someday World' love-in with this list of its songs:

The Satellites
Daddy's Car
A Man Wakes Up
Witness
Strip It Down
Mother Of A Dog
Who Rings The Bell
When I Built This World
To Us All

--------------------------------------------------

Sharon Van Etten details new LP, Are We There
Following a brief behind-the-scenes trailer earlier this week, Sharon Van Etten has since detailed her new LP, 'Are We There', giving up its tracklisting and crucial 26 May release date.

Van Etten wrote and produced her first longform disc since 2012's 'Tramp' with 'kindred spirit' Stewart Lerman in his New Jersey studio, writing through a series of "impossible decisions, anticipation and then, resolution".

And while she hasn't shared any new tracks yet, she has revealed new live listings for a set of dates featuring a single UK show at Koko in London on 5 Jun. So there is that. And this tracklisting:

Afraid of Nothing
Taking Chances
Your Love Is Killing Me
Our Love
Tarifa
I Love You But I'm Lost
You Know Me Well
Break Me
Nothing Will Change
I Know
Every Time The Sun Comes Up

Barbican shuts down Just Jam on police advice
The 1 Mar edition of Just Jam, which was supposed to take place live at the Barbican in London, was called off yesterday at the recommendation of the City Of London Police, who raised "public safety concerns" with regards to the event's management.

The usually basement-based night was due to move above ground for the one-off show, with acts like JME, Mount Kimbie, Loefah, Newham Generals and Omar Souleyman all booked to play against a giant screen, and have their sets streamed live via JJ's online channel.

Citing amongst other issues the fact that alcohol would be on sale at the event, despite it being open to ticket-holders aged 16 and over, City Of London Police issued a statement yesterday that read (via FACT): "Additionally, there were worries about the lack of adequate measures in place to address potential issues that might arise, including overcrowding if more people decided to attend than the venue could cater for".

"Ultimately", it continued, "after consultation the decision to cancel the event was taken by the Barbican as the venue".​​​​

Reacting "with great regret" to news of the event's cancellation, an apparently baffled Just Jam HQ said: "We're struggling to understand why this has happened and will try to start a dialogue with the police so we can discuss whatever issues they have with Just Jam at the Barbican".

And: "The workshops we've recently ran with the Barbican in Fellows Court in Hackney have shown how the artists we work with can get young people from all backgrounds excited about making art and music, we hope to continue working on this and on other projects, with the Barbican in the future".

The Buckhead Bieber blocker bombshell? Bullshit
What do the people of Buckhead, a district of Atlanta, think about the rumours Justin Bieber has been looking at properties in their area?

Well, actually they're pretty disinterested in the news, despite widespread reports of an online petition calling on the singer to stay away, and photos of a small group of locals protesting with banners carrying slogans like "JUSTin say no" and "Keep Buckhead Bieber free".

"We're just concerned citizens", Hank Maguire of the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition told reporters when asked about the petition and protest.

Except the whole thing was one of those crazy radio show pranks, Maguire being an intern working on the 'Regular Guys' show on Atlanta's Rock 100.5 station. Though as such pranks go, it was quite a success, with calls apparently coming in from news outlets around the world to find out more about the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition's concerns.

But a real spokesman for said neighbourhood group told reporters that, despite Bieber's much publicised run-ins with his neighbours in LA, he'd welcome the pop tyke to his locale.
