An unfinished Drake song has leaked onto the internet with the title "Views From The 6," which is also the name of his reported upcoming album. It features an unknown rapper by the name of E Batt, and while it was speculated that he was the one behind the leak, he has since come out and said it wasn't him. You can hear the track over at Stereogum, though I wouldn't expect it to be up for long.

Following up on the news that Pianos Become The Teeth, Desaparecidos and The Sidekicks would feature on Epitaph Records fall sampler, it appears that more info was leaked via the cassette.

It looks like The Wonder Years will be playing Soundwave 2015 (lineup includes Faith No More, Soundgarden, Slipknot, Fall Out Boy, New Found Glory and more). The band had to cancel their Australian tour for circumstances outside of their control last week.

A Loss For Words will be releasing a final album in 2015 before disbanding.
We will be doing one last record and close the final chapter of A Loss For Words journey at the end of 2015. We will announce more in detail the next few days as we gather our thoughts on how to even attempt to explain our love for this band and the support you have all given us. It's hard to show how grateful we truly are! Stay tuned. We plan on making 2015 the best year this bands ever seen!

Henry Rollins issued an apology about his recent comments on suicide. LA Weekly will be posting another piece from Rollins on Monday.
For the last 9+ hours, I have been answering letters from people from all over the world. The anger is off the scale and in my opinion, well placed. The article I wrote in the LA Weekly about suicide caused a lot of hurt. This is perhaps one of the bigger understatements of all time. I read all the letters. Some of them were very long and the disappointment, resentment and ringing clarity was jarring. That I hurt anyone by what I said, and I did hurt many, disgusts me. It was not at all my intent but it most certainly was the result.

I have had a...

Amir Goldberg, writing for Stanford Graduate School of Business:
We like believing that our decision to download a song to our smartphone is the result of conscious, perhaps even rational, individual choice. But above all, we are social animals. Every decision, even the most banal, is deeply rooted in our cultural identity. Musical taste is never merely about melody or lyrics. Studies find a consistent relationship between, on the one hand, ethnicity, education, and income, and, on the other, musical and other preferences. Our decisions tend to be similar to those who are like us socio-demographically. Struggles over the qualitative value of our preferences are therefore also struggles...
