Junior Battles new album Rally will hit stores on May 27th. Redbull is premiering the song with some more info from the band and/or you can hear it in the replies.
"In the past, a lot of Junior Battles songs dealt really deliberately with the uncertainty of your early 20s -- trying to figure out how to be a decent adult who still can tour and pay rent and still go to shows on weeknights," says singer/guitarist Sam Sutherland. "When we started writing 'Rally,' things had changed. We had stopped touring as much, and the anxiety of 'Idle Ages' was fading. In its place, we found ourselves writing more broadly about our place in the world and the kind of people we felt ourselves becoming....

Amazon and HBO have signed an agreement to bring many of the premium channel's shows to Amazons Prime's video service. Just gonna toss it out there: if you haven't seen The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and/or The Wire ... you're missing out.
Newer shows like Girls, The Newsroom and Veep will eventually be made available to Prime subscribers, but not until three years after they've first aired on HBO. And other hits like Game of Thrones aren't even mentioned as part of the deal, so HBO may be keeping some popular content for itself.

A new study has found that when reviewers were told the author of a legal brief was black they consistently rated the piece lower in quality and identified more errors than its identical counterpart. Evan Soltas, writing for Vox, has more:
Arin N. Revees, the president of Nextions and the author of the study, argues that the implicit racism happened because reviewers take the racial information she provided as a cue for how they should judge the work. When the author is supposed to be white, reviewers excused errors as out of haste or inexperience. They commented that the author "has potential" and was "generally a good writer but needs to work on" some skills. When the author is...

Former police officer and lead singer of the metal band Cousin Sleaze has pleaded guilty of fraud in New York.
Authorities alleged that Inserra, despite collecting disability, continued to perform as the frontman of Brooklyn-based Cousin Sleaze. Photos of performances from April 2011 show him "repeatedly moving his arms in a punching motion" and "violently flailing his arm in an up-and-down motion," a criminal complaint said.

A spokesperson for Gail Shea has responded to Morrissey's comments about Canada's seal hunt.
This is clearly just another case of a millionaire celebrity, desperate for a hobby, shamelessly regurgitating misinformation and myths that fringe animal-rights groups have been pushing for years. In the future, I would urge Mr. Morrissey to consider the impact that his ignorant and inflammatory statements have on the livelihoods of thousands of hard-working men and women in rural communities.

This morning, James Franco was a guest on ABC's "The View" and revealed that Kanye West actually called him and Seth Rogan concerning their "Bound 2" parody video, asking the pair to perform it at his wedding. It doesn't seem like it will actually be happening, but it's the thought that counts.
"Kim loved the video, and we didn't hear back from Kanye, so we kind of felt like 'he's not bashing us, but he probably hates it but he's not going to say anything.' But then two weeks ago, we got a call from Kanye. Seth and I were on the phone. We thought he was just going to let us have it. But he loved it! And I'm pretty sure I can say it now because I'm pretty sure it's not going to...
