Before the Music Dies

This isn't exactly the usuall news post for Wednesday, but in a sense this movie gives a better, closer look at the modern music industry than any one news item could. It includes interviews with record executives, songwriters, performers, and everything in between and goes behind the scenes to look at the commercial side of music. It premiered at South by Southwest and has received a plethora of critical acclaim from countless festivals and media outlets. The Recording Academy also held viewings of it in various cities, which is how I came across it. Fortunately, you can view it for free on Hulu.

Watch the trailer here:
