We're excited to bring you an exclusive stream of Sudden Suspension's sophomore EP, titled Basement Songs.

The EP can be pre-ordered on their bandcamp.

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters recently recalled the first time he heard Lorde's "Royals," saying it was "it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop." He went on to say Lorde has "something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic," which is why she was one of the musicians selected alongside St. Vincent, Joan Jett, and Kim Gordon to front Nirvana at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Devin Ingelido, a former member of VersaEmerge, has posted a blog calling out ... well, basically everyone. The full thing is in the replies.
Finally, we met with the owner of Fueled by Ramen, had dinner with him and was convinced that label was the right fit. This is where there is much speculation. I can tell you that I feel signing with fueled by was such a mistake. A 360 deal doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing if the band is going to be pushed. The more money the label makes, the more the band makes. Except the label has a hand in every pot.

I feel the band was signed to not create competition for Paramore.

Following Drake's "incident" last week the Toronto Raptors distributed 1,200 free OVO/Drake-branded lint rollers during game five of their playoff series against the Brooklyn Nets last night. Life has begun to parody itself and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I was reading the Cassino thread from earlier today and someone mentioned that Northstar's Pollyanna is 10 years old now. It was released on April 20, 2004, so we're like 10 days late on this post, but what a great record. I would fly just about anywhere in the U.S. (including Huntsville, Alabama) to see that album played front-to-back. Feel free to reminisce on the album in the replies if you were a fan – if you don't know what I'm talking about, fix that (Spotify, Rdio).
Thomas Nassiff on 04/30/14 - 07:55 PM
Yikes. In a recent interview with Q Magazine, Warpaint's Theresa Wayman basically slut shames Beyoncé and Rihanna.
“It just gets worse,” she adds. “Every song on Beyonce’s last album has her basically looking like a slut and she does not need to do that. She’s gorgeous and so fucking talented. And they all take it as women’s liberation!”

Update: Wayman has issued an apology/clarification on her comments via the band's Facebook.
