I am an unabashed Monkees fan and I love this new album so much!

This gets it exactly right: “The result is a joyous, janglely, and surprisingly solid collection of summer pop that sounds like The Monkees we all remember, while still feeling relevant and not a complete exercise in nostalgia.”

Google Redesigns Play Music on the Web

by Zack Zarrillo

The Verge has a full profile on the changes to Google’s Play Music from the company itself: 

Another small change: the artist page has moved away from square photos in favor of circle crops — the same switch Android, iOS, and third-party apps have made when it comes to displaying your contacts. “We’re trying to differentiate people from other content, making artists and bands first class citizens in the experience and not just another card,” said Rea. “Circles feel more organic than sharp edged squares and rectangles which makes them a perfect fit for people’s faces.” Design talk aside, the most useful addition to this update is a new queue pop-over that you can toggle on by hitting an icon at the bottom right. Previously, this disrupted your music browsing and took you back to a dedicated queue page. Now, you can continue looking around for new music and quickly see which songs are coming up in your playlist. Google has also made some accessibility improvements, introducing “lots” of new keyboard shortcuts and Screenreader compatibility.

It’s almost like companies that have a foot in music are scrambling to make changes to their existing services before Apple launches it’s competitor
