Watch his interview below. Tickets are still available for the 10:15pm showing of the film here in Seattle! Grab them here!

  • Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX, has revealed their full lineup for this year’s festivities! This year, the lineup is seriously impressive, including Santigold, Public Image Ltd., A$AP Rocky, Charlie XCX, Starfucker, Danny Brown, Macklemore, Surfer Blood, Run DMC, and Edward Sharpe to name only a few. See the full lineup here and grab tickets here!
  • Rising hip-hop icon Azealia Banks didn’t wait long to drop a follow up to her excellent 1991 EP. Yesterday, she released the Fantasea Mixtape, a dizzying 19 track collection of tracks new and old. Yes, the excellent Diplo produced “Fuck The Fun Up” is here, along with “Nathan” (featuring Styles P) and “Jumanji”. There’s plenty of other material there too! Grab it here.
  • It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since Seattle songwriter Sera Cahoone has released an album of her own (she’s performed regularly as a drummer with others since then), but now Sub Pop has just announced that her third solo album, Deer Creek Canyon, will be available on September 25th. You can listen to the first single, single “Naked,” here:
