"This was a completely different kind of thing for me," Pundik says, referencing the departure from NFG's chugging guitars and sneering punk hooks. "I've always been into alt-country and Americana, and [the song] has that vibe. I was able to tone down my voice a bit, to not to belt so hard."
Time is reporting that "Is Anyone Up" founder Hunter Moore has been arrested by FBI agents.
Hunter Moore, whom Rolling Stone called “the most hated man on the Internet” for his alleged operation and defense of a revenge porn website, was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury, according to an official at the United States Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.
Someone online showed this to me (and I forgot your username, I'm sorry), and it's pretty interesting -- it's all of the new releases on Rdio each week placed into genres.
This is an algorithmically-generated categorization of Rdio new releases by genre. The categorization is artist-based, and cheerfully optimisitic, so releases are listed in any genre where some data from somewhere suggests they might conceivably be relevant. Sometimes this will be laughably wrong. Laugh, and move on. Single-song releases are shown with quoted song names; multiple-song releases are shown with italicized release titles.
Tom Junod, writing for Esquire, pens a great piece on the mysteries and career of Bob Dylan:
It's quite a trick. Dylan's public career began at the dawn of the age of total disclosure and has continued into the dawn of the age of total surveillance; he has ended up protecting his privacy at a time when privacy itself is up for grabs. But his claim to privacy is compelling precisely because it's no less enigmatic and paradoxical than any other claim he's made over the years.

And yes, the importance of his privacy...

After all, if I could designate any period of time which could be attributed to a negative turning point in Mae’s tenure, it would be associated with the recording and release of Singularity, and the subsequent tour. Aside from the biographical events, the songs and sonic characteristics of this particular record don’t immediately bring to mind feelings up triumph or any elevated accomplishments. Of course, in a certain sense, the writing, recording, and release of any body of songs is an accomplishment, but with Singularity, the accomplishment registered is not similar to that of The Everglow. Furthermore, the...

Check out his first interviews with Jack Barakat of All Time Low, Vic Fuentes of Pierce The Veil and pro wrestler Seth Rollins in the replies, and subscribe to future video updates on YouTube.
I've done a lot of interviews over the past few years. I mean, a lot, and I get asked the same couple of questions and give the same couple of answers constantly. Recently, I got the opportunity to interview a friend of mine and we had a blast, so, I figured why not do it more often? The goal is simple: use my...
