What was already one of my most anticipated hip-hop albums just became even greater. In a new interview with NPR, Nas revealed that he's working with Timbaland, Swizz Beatz and No I.D. for his follow up to 2012's fantastic release, Life Is Good.

Vain & Valor filled out our random interview; check it out.
Our very first weekender I was locked outside of the van half naked in the middle of nowhere at 3am. It was hilarious for everyone inside the van I'm sure, but for me it was one of those "Mom get me a grey hound ticket. I'm coming home!" moments.

The guys from Copeland will be chatting in this thread at 8pm EST. It's been over five years since the band released new music, so make it worth their while. Ask them about their new album, Ixora, what they've been up to over the past couple years with their side projects, the band's future and more. And when the chat's over, be sure to head over to their webstore and pre-order the new album.

Update: The chat is now over with. We'd like to thank Aaron and Bryan for taking four hours to answer all of our questions. If that doesn't say enough about the guys, I don't know what will. Again, if you haven't already, go pre-order Ixora and help the guys create the next beautiful...

Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM's way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out "to all the bands playing instruments this weekend" -- and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?" to "inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me." This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.

Robin from Fleet Foxes has posted an update about the band's current status.
For anyone who's curious, this is a short Fleet Foxes update - been a while! So, after the last round of touring, I decided to go back to school. I never got an undergraduate degree, and this felt like the right time to both see what that was about and to try something new after a while in the touring / recording lifestyle. I moved to New York and enrolled at Columbia, and I've mostly been doing that, but I'm working on songs and excited for whatever happens next musically, even if it's down the line. Hope all is well out there.

Junior Battles new album Rally will hit stores on May 27th. Redbull is premiering the song with some more info from the band and/or you can hear it in the replies.
"In the past, a lot of Junior Battles songs dealt really deliberately with the uncertainty of your early 20s -- trying to figure out how to be a decent adult who still can tour and pay rent and still go to shows on weeknights," says singer/guitarist Sam Sutherland. "When we started writing 'Rally,' things had changed. We had stopped touring as much, and the anxiety of 'Idle Ages' was fading. In its place, we found ourselves writing more broadly about our place in the world and the kind of people we felt ourselves becoming....

Project Naptha is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to copy text from images on the web. I'm posting this because it's cool.
Project Naptha automatically applies state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms on every image you see while browsing the web. The result is a seamless and intuitive experience, where you can highlight as well as copy and paste and even edit and translate the text formerly trapped within an image.

Amazon and HBO have signed an agreement to bring many of the premium channel's shows to Amazons Prime's video service. Just gonna toss it out there: if you haven't seen The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and/or The Wire ... you're missing out.
Newer shows like Girls, The Newsroom and Veep will eventually be made available to Prime subscribers, but not until three years after they've first aired on HBO. And other hits like Game of Thrones aren't even mentioned as part of the deal, so HBO may be keeping some popular content for itself.

A new study has found that when reviewers were told the author of a legal brief was black they consistently rated the piece lower in quality and identified more errors than its identical counterpart. Evan Soltas, writing for Vox, has more:
Arin N. Revees, the president of Nextions and the author of the study, argues that the implicit racism happened because reviewers take the racial information she provided as a cue for how they should judge the work. When the author is supposed to be white, reviewers excused errors as out of haste or inexperience. They commented that the author "has potential" and was "generally a good writer but needs to work on" some skills. When the author is...

Former police officer and lead singer of the metal band Cousin Sleaze has pleaded guilty of fraud in New York.
Authorities alleged that Inserra, despite collecting disability, continued to perform as the frontman of Brooklyn-based Cousin Sleaze. Photos of performances from April 2011 show him "repeatedly moving his arms in a punching motion" and "violently flailing his arm in an up-and-down motion," a criminal complaint said.

A spokesperson for Gail Shea has responded to Morrissey's comments about Canada's seal hunt.
This is clearly just another case of a millionaire celebrity, desperate for a hobby, shamelessly regurgitating misinformation and myths that fringe animal-rights groups have been pushing for years. In the future, I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities.
