Kwame Opam, writing for the Polygon, looks at the all digital pop-superstar Hatsune Miku. Hit the replies for the video.
Last month, as an experiment, the video team and I took a shot at explaining who and what Miku is in the context of American pop stardom. To Miku fans, this will probably seem familiar, but hopefully for those readers who are as puzzled as I initially was, this will introduce a bizarre, wonderful, creatively empowering character.

Pittsburgh-based act The Homeless Gospel Choir will be releasing a new album, I Used To Be So Young, on July 15th via A-F Records. Today, we are premiering the band's new video for "Armageddon," which you can view in the replies. The unique singer-songwriter/folk-punk act is about coming face-to-face with adulthood and has no desire to participate, and cleverly tackles topics of social and political matters with utmost honesty. If you dig it, make sure to pre-order the LP.

Show ReviewsDiarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and The Midgetmen - Austin, Texas (Caitlin DeWeese)
Caitlin DeWeese on 06/28/14 - 03:10 PM
Austin, Texas has been on overload with killer shows this week, but Diarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and local heroes The Midgetmen played a killer set to a packed house at Red 7 on June 27th. The venue was feeling hellishly hot, and most of the audience was soaked in sweat most likely not theirs, but no one seemed to give a crap. Hit the replies to read my full review of the show, as well as a photo gallery.
Itís hard not to wail when your band features four guitarists, a lone bassist, and a bad-ass drummer. Diarrhea Planetís music falls somewhere between the wildness of older The Black Lips and classic Nashville Southern rock.

Hidden Hospitals are looking to fund their first full-length on Kickstarter.
Our next goal is to produce our first full length record. We've spent the past year holed up in Chicago, writing, crafting and whittling down a collection of songs that we feel is the first full realization of why we started this band. As you might assume, our biggest endeavor to date also comes with the biggest financial constraint. We refuse to sacrifice this dream because of budget, so we are turning to you - our supporters - to help us get to the finish line. Importantly, we aren't looking for donations, we want to give you exclusive access and rewards so you can own a piece of this process and be a...

David Greenwald, writing for The Oregonian:
There will be no blurred lines this summer. After a year in pop that prided itself on reckless masculinity, Robin Thicke is pleading for his estranged wife's return and the rest of the pop world seems to have learned a lesson from the firestorm of critique his "Blurred Lines" caused. From the charts to the club, 2014's male-fronted tracks are hands-free affairs that eye the altar, not the bedroom.
