There are quite a few flaws with Apple's mobile products, and one that drives me crazy is their reliance upon iTunes for all your music syncing needs. If you want a song on your iPhone, you pretty much have to use iTunes to get it on there. Either that or buy it directly from the iTunes app on your device.Now, don't get me wrong, iTunes is a good way to buy and organize your music library, but sometimes you just don't want to be locked down like that. So what are the alternatives? You'll probably be surprised, but there's actually more than one way to put music on your iPhone without using iTunes!
The Android world is brimming with music streaming apps. While a handful of them provides free music, a few others have paid plans and the rest have a combination of free+paid services. So it’s a tad difficult to choose the right music service which will suit both the ears and the pocket.
The genre hasn’t been this irrelevant in decades, which was only underscored by a slew of memoirs by aging rock stars.
Maybe, this time, rock really is dead. In 2016, the pop charts were ruled by Justin Bieber, Drake, and Rihanna. The year’s most critically acclaimed albums were mostly made by pop stars, rappers, and people whose work loosely falls under the category of R&B. Rock’s entries in the best-of-2016 lists came from legacy acts like Nick Cave and Radiohead; very good younger bands that sound like very good bands from back in the day, such as Car Seat Headrest and Parquet Courts; or people who literally died, like David Bowie and Leonard Cohen, who both made albums about dying.
Rock came back from the dead once before, when it was brought back to life by four young men from Liverpool. But this time it looks like it may be gone for good.

UK band Everywhere have announced their first 2017 offering in the form of new single "Man Up", currently available for streaming on Soundcloud. The official release to all digital stores including Spotify will happen on June 9.
Dressed up in an electro-pop suit, the new single sports funky basslines, analog synths, and last but not least, a feature by Swedish singer/songwriter Rebecca Nohr.
Beyond its casual first impression, the song dives into themes about unfulfilled expectations, dominant partners, and the pain stalking strives to live up to an old-fashioned idea of what it means to be a man. "We're currently working on an album, it's still early but hopefully it should be out this fall" -says the band.
At the end of last year, Everywhere released their critically praised sophomore EP "Fiction Act". The EP single "Some Other Dude" was featured on BBC Introducing in London and has received over a million streams on Spotify.
They made their first International appearance at the 2013 NME Awards in the UK, playing alongside Django Django and Palma Violets, and later went on to support the Kaiser Chiefs and headline Notting Hill Arts Club in London.
