Probably when I forgot the lyrics on Conan O’ Brien, that was the big switch in my life, going from ultimately a good level of confidence to really embodying a deep-seeded hatred of myself and severely disliking who I was. The next ten years were pretty fucking dark, I think a lot of things are made about bands writing angsty lyrics and...
This week's Quiet Country Audio session is a doozy. Florida twinkle daddies Dikembe jam on "Hood Rat Messiah," "Donuts in a Six Speed," "I Watch a Lot of Jackie Chan Movies" and "Scottie Spliffen." Watch the performance in the replies.

Today I'm particularly pleased to premiere Sorority Noise's version of Buddy Holly's wonderful "Everyday." The cover song comes from the band's upcoming split with Radiator Hospital, out September 30th through Soft Speak Records. Preorders can be found here. Oh, and even cooler, is that all proceeds from the split go to V-Day, a charity dedicated to ending violence against women. Check out the Noise Boys' take on such a historic song, and learn a little bit more about V-Day, in the replies.
Prosecutors have not alleged that any physical contact occurred, and the supposedly underage girls have never been identified by investigators. Klein has pleaded not guilty to all charges. On Thursday, Deputy District Attorney Julie Antos played five videos in the courtroom for Superior Court Judge John Trice, Klein and his attorney Ilan Funke-Bilu that allegedly showed audio-less, screen-captured video of Klein carrying on sexually explicit activity with girls on the stranger-based chat website Omegle.
“Music is very, very important to the Urban customer… in fact, we are the world’s number one vinyl seller,” Calvin Hollinger, the company’s chief administrative officer, said at a meeting with analysts yesterday. He explained that instead of having thousands of vinyl albums online, the company has a system in place that lets it seamlessly offer inventory from roughly 100 vendors without actually owning that inventory, a model it might use with Anthropologie’s home goods.

Amy Fleisher Madden, founder of former Fiddler Records, has written a book and launched a Kickstarter.
A Million Miles is a novel written by Amy Fleisher Madden. It is a no-holds-barred coming of age story told with the burgeoning indie/emo music scene of the late ‘90s set as the backdrop. My nickname "Fiddler" came from the record label that I started when I was 16, Fiddler Records. As Fiddler Records I released 25 records in ten years. I worked with several artists that went on to sell hundreds of thousands of records. If you want me to name drop, here are the few you might have heard of: Dashboard Confessional, Name Taken, The Higher, Juliette Lewis and The Licks, Recover, The...
We did start working on new material, a new recording, but even with that, it's not like it's going to be finished next month. It'll take us several months to get it all together. I'd like to think that around this time next year, we could have a new record out. We demoed a lot of stuff and recorded some stuff. Karl [Alvarez] and I have my studio, and we have my Pro Tools little small thing at my house, and Milo [Aukerman] has a Pro Tools rig in his basement, and Stephen [Egerton] has his studio where he lives, so we pass files around," Stevenson says.
After spending some of the greatest and hardest moments of our last 7 years together, Gav is moving on to other endeavors and will no longer be part of the band. Although his drumming and companionship will be sorely missed and never replaced, we love him and wish him all the best. He joined Paper Route as our friend, and he leaves as one. Send him your love in the comments below.
JLo and Iggy may feel empowered by their bodies and that’s fine, their bodies ARE powerful, beautiful and life giving. But they are so much more than just their bodies. They may feel that using their bodies is the only currency they have in order to stay popular and on the top. It has become a contest of who gets the most hits on youtube and vevo and who can take it the furthest, not about the quality of their songs and the messages they are sending. And why? To make lots of money and to line the pockets of the big machines, regardless of who that affects.
Remember how Kanye got sentenced to 250 hours of community service a while back and it was reported he'd be teaching a fashion class? Looks like that's come to fruition: head to Complex to read a students account of Professor Yeezy's first class.
A highlight? "He did not mention the word Addidas at all."
