Kanye West did an interview with Style discussing his new Adidas line.
Adidas is the perfect place to be. If someone was to say, “Hey, do you want to go to a high-end house now?” I’d absolutely say no. I’m not trying to [sound] presumptuous, I’m just saying that if in my wildest dreams I was presented with the opportunity, I would absolutely say no at this point. Because I’m only concerned with making beautiful products available to as many people as possible … The least I could do is spend my time trying to give other people a piece of the so-called good life. Everyone should have the good life. It’s like [Amancio] Ortega [founder of Zara] and H&M group. Before that happened, you could...

Shea Serrano speculates on Grantland about what it would be like if Kanye West had never interrupted Taylor Swift.
For starters, if he doesn’t interrupt her, then he never gets shredded into a million pieces in the news. And if he never gets shredded into a million pieces in the news, then he never makes My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which was his emotional response to the blowback, and that is truly devastating, because MBDTF is a (very nearly) perfect album. If there’s no MBDTF, then that means we never get RZA drunk-mumble-shouting, “Fuckhhn ruhdihhkulus” on “So Appalled,” and oh no, but also we never get Pusha T admitting to cheating on a girl and telling her, “All right, all...

Conor Oberst appears on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast this week. He discusses Bright Eyes, the rape accusations from last year, and a variety of other topics.
I want to put it in perspective because I think about all the many African-American men who are in prisons right now for crimes they didn't commit, and for actual victims of sexual assault that it has done the greatest disservice to," he said. "They say one out of four women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime. That's staggering and fucking horrible

Jack White has penned a letter clarifying his tour rider that was recently published by the University of Oklahoma's college paper. It's in the replies.
first off, this is none of your business, but i have no specific demands in my dressing room. i know i could ask for lots of things but i actually dont ask for ANYTHING. i take with me what i need, and that aint much. anything on the rider is for the band and the crew. this "guacamole recipe" is my hilarious tour managers inside joke with the local promoters, it’s his recipe, not mine. it’s just something to break up the boredom, seeing who can make it best.

Tony Thaxton, formerly of Motion City Soundtrack, has written up a blog about how he feels now about having left the band.
Before the show, we had decided that I would join them onstage for the last song of the night, “My Favorite Accident”. Which is probably the song that I have played the most in my life. I’m not sure we ever DIDN’T play that song. Plus we sound checked with it often. I should be sick of it. But it felt like the right song. When the time came, I was actually pretty excited to go and do it. It wasn’t announced, no one in the audience knew I was going to play. I won’t lie, it was an ego boost. The reaction when I came out felt really nice. I was truly touched....

Marika Hackman releases her debut album, We Slept At Last, today and I cannot recommend it enough. After spending some weeks with it, it's my favourite release of the year so far due to its ominous, dark atmosphere and lyricism contrasted by a delicate voice stringing it all together - and if you're a fan of Laura Marling, Warpaint and Chelsea Wolfe you should definitely give it a shot. Hit the replies to stream the album in full.

Ohhh, Valentine's Day ... you're the pop-punk of holidays; either sappy or forlorn, either loved or despised, either celebrated or ignored. There's not much in between. On this Valentine's Day we are continuing our release of a special group of Cartel acoustic sessions to celebrate the band's 10 year anniversary of Chroma. As you know, the band is heading out to play this album live across the country (dates in the replies), and they've got a great vinyl pressing of the album up for sale. This week we are excited to bring you a rendition of one of my favorite tracks from Chroma, "The Minstrel's Prayer." This is one of those songs that I feel helped push the genre forward into something...

Instead of discussing music, the two talk about Ben's struggles with alcoholism and addiction, as well as his recent marriage, and his ongoing struggle to come to terms with trauma from his childhood. They also discuss the band's new EP, Dogged, which arrives on March 17.
