There's a new IndieGoGo campaign up to fund a documentary on Siberia's improbable punk scene in the 80's.
Directed by Vladimir Kozlov, this first-of-its-kind documentary uses rare footage of Siberian punk legends including the punk poet and songwriter Yanka Dyagileva and the controversial godfather of Russian punk Yegor Letov, along with contemporary interviews, to recount the story of Siberia's improbable punk scene. Arguably the very embodiment of underground, Siberian punk existed not only thousands of miles away from the movement's epicenters in New York and London but also at the height of the Cold War – a time when playing punk music might literally have landed you in… well,...

Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry will release a new solo album, Music for Heart and Breath, on June 9th. Hit the replies for the track listing and collaborations featured.
[It's] very soft, very quiet music, played utterly in synch with the heart rates and breathing rates of the musicians performing it. Every note you hear is either in synch with the heartbeat of the person playing it, the breathing of the person (or one of the surrounding persons) playing it. So what you hear when this music plays is played precisely in time with someone’s quiet, internal rhythms. Brought to musical life by a handful of different ensembles.

The New York Times has published a conversation between Conor Oberst and Lorde.
A lot of that was starting at a young age, not realizing that it wasn’t cool to, like, express your emotions. I wasn’t old enough to be cynical or jaded. I had a similar reaction when I heard your music. So much stuff at your level, in the Top 40 world, is just like vapor: You hear a song and maybe you can hum the melody but you walk away with zero ideas having been communicated. And with your writing, you can do it all at once. You can have this amazing pop anthem that the whole world’s going to sing, and you can still communicate solid, concrete ideas and paint this very vivid picture of lost teenagers in...
