Amazon has extended their current deal on the new Arcade Fire album The Suburbs. It’s available to download for only $3.99! Grab it while you still can!

Weezer debuted a brand new track today, and it’s available to stream here. And the world shrugs. They’ve also debuted the cover art to their upcoming album Hurley. Are they for real? Seriously? Either this is an awesome prank/joke from Rivers, or it is so far past jumping the shark it’s not funny.

Damian from Fucked Up got a change to interview Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO, and it’s up on Under the Radar. Excellent interview that covers a lot of interesting ground, so make sure you read it.
