I recently had the chance to sit down and talk with Aaron Marsh of Copeland about the band's new album Ixora, the future of the band, and what it was like to get back together and record after a few years off. You can check that out here.
This is like, I should do a different interview for 'What The Fuck Am I Doing Magazine' or something like that. So Twin is the bonus disc, so there will be a two disc set that's kind of the deluxe edition, we're calling it the Twin Edition, and so the bonus disc has all of the songs from the record in different versions, so some of them are acoustic, some of them are kind of remix, some of them, one of them is just kind of like a soundscape with, you...

Killer Mike has co-written an op-ed in USA Today discussing the treatment of rap music in courts.
As recent research has revealed, rap lyrics have been introduced as evidence of a defendant's criminal behavior in hundreds of cases nationwide, frequently leading to convictions that are based on prosecutors' blatant mischaracterizations of the genre. Ignoring many of the elements that signal rap as form of artistic expression, such as rappers' use of stage names or their frequent use of metaphor and hyperbole, prosecutors will present rap as literal autobiography. In effect, they ask jurors to suspend the distinction between author and narrator, reality and fiction, to secure guilty verdicts.

Rolling Stone recently sat down with Ben Gibbard to talk about his work on Foo Fighters Sonic Highways album.
For me, seeing bands not only being great but also humble and acceptable – that's something that's always been built into the ethic and aesthetic of this city. It doesn't matter how famous you get outside of Seattle; you can't come back and act like an asshole "rock star." If you move to New York or Los Angeles or maybe Nashville, you could go out and be like, "That's a super famous rock star. That's just how he acts." But Seattle doesn't play that shit.

Sony saw a pretty big breach this weekend which lead to a variety of their films (some still in theatres, some not out yet) being leaked. One of the notable films is the To Write Love On Her Arms movie.

That’s high enough to be the second most-downloaded movie currently being pirated, and it’s not out of movie theaters yet. Another big Sony movie, “Annie,” is also being pirated, this one three weeks ahead of its own wide release. Other Sony movies being downloaded include “Mr. Turner,” “Still Alice” and “To Write Love on Her...
