The Red Western are gearing up to release their double-EP, Sirens and Arrows, on February 5th and you can now stream both in the replies. Described as "five cuts of big, bright, full-of-life indie rock with tinges of pop (delightfully reminiscent of Camera Obscura), Americana and even a little bit of alt-emo in the vein of Run For Cover Records acts like Petal." I definitely recommend giving them a whirl and heading to iTunes and Bandcamp to support a great independent band.

Ian Cohen sat down with Max Bemis of Say Anything to talk about his surprise album drop, online social activism, and meeting Kanye West.
He has a relationship with one of my best friends, with whom heíd be meeting with for other reasons. He was mentioning me for something outside of music. We got an opportunity to work on a song with him, I donít think he used it. I get nervous about talking about it. But thatís basically how this record started. Thereís only a few people on my bucket list that I want to work with but itís unlikely that I would: Dave Grohl and Kanye. Everyone else, I have had a chance to work with. We did get to work in the studio, it was right at the beginning of...

Continuing his descent into the same kind of madness that marked his 2010-era Twitter, Kanye tweeted what was ostensibly a Rolling Stone cover featuring him shot by Tyler, The Creator and which posed the question: "Does He Like Mustard?" Rolling Stone denied it was a cover, but Kanye has since tweeted a poll asking his followers whether it should be a cover. No word on whether there were ever any actual plans for Yeezy to grace RS this month.

Michael Nelson goes long on Rihanna's botched ANTI release strategy for Stereogum, and what it means for the industry and her that it went platinum despite reportedly selling less than 500 copies total in the same timeframe it was certified in. It's a fascinating read about conflicts of interest, industry rules bending at the will of superstars, how corporations might try to game the system without being punished, and even how streaming warps the value of a "sale." If you're at all interested in the industry and how this release happened, I can't encourage you to read this enough.
On that note: How much did Samsung pay for those ANTI giveaways? Thatís a mystery. It could have been $5...
