The Hush Sound is one of those bands that broke right before they could have done something amazing. But they are back doing two shows in February in Chicago. One will be entirely dedicated to their eponymous LP, Like Vines. Hopefully this will result in a tour!
So the “Airplanes” track was originally shopped to Lupe Fiasco before B.o.B. took his spin at it. Lucky for us who are tired of the popular version, we get a second chance. Take a listen to “Airplanes” by Lupe Fiasco. And yes, it’s still featuring the awesome Hayley Williams!

Rumor has it that Fueled By Ramen will no longer be a label very soon.
In a desperate last struggle (from severely declining record and single sales) it looks like the world’s most popular indie label, Fueled By Ramen could be shutting down forever. Most likely the successful artists from the label will be split to either Atlantic Records (Paramore) or Warner Brothers Records (Panic! At the Disco). While others will cling to their second home of Decaydance Records (Cobra Starship and The Academy Is…). Others like the unpopular The Swellers and Forgive Durden will be completely dropped.
Fueled By Ramen merged with Atlantic Records a few years ago for distribution within the United States but promised much better record sales. The last bands to sign onto the label were the terribly received The Swellers and Fun. in 2009 and 2010 respectively. While the label has had many huge hits like Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At the Disco, and Paramore, the revenue to promote music is not bringing in as much gross gain as the agreement with Atlantic Records had guaranteed.
“[Atlantic] had high hopes for Fueled By Ramen and continue to sign great new acts with lots of sales,” says an insider. “Lately it hasn’t been the case and it looks like Atlantic is holding them accountable for it. Everyone is doubting they’ll be around next year.”
