Today’s Monday Musings features music and comics. I’ve recently read some comics I really enjoyed and there are a couple music-related things to check out.

Apple Bows Apple Music For Artists to Provide Acts With Deep Analytics Dive

The easily navigable dashboard’s home page provides artists with their current number of plays, spins, song purchases and album purchases. The user can specify the time period ranging from the past 24 hours to the 2015 launch of Apple Music.

I tried to get Elephant Jake access to their artist profile on Apple Music and wasn’t successful. It’ll be interesting to see if they roll this out to all artists or keep their focus on larger artists. There are plenty of smaller artists and labels who would love to have access to this data.

Justin Timberlake chats with Zane Lowe

Justin Timberlake talks about writing songs for Beyoncé and his son listening to “Filthy.” If you’re a fan, give this a listen. This is just the first part, but you can listen to the full interview here.

Batman and Son and Catwoman: Trail of the Catwoman

These are two comics that I recently read and really enjoyed. Batman and Son is the first trade of Grant Morrison’s run on Batman. Trail of the Catwoman is by Ed Brubaker with Darwyn Cooke on a good chunk of the art. If you like the Bat-family of characters at all, give these a read if you haven’t yet.
