  • Members of Russian punk group Pussy Riot will be released from jail soon under a new amnesty bill, which pardons mothers who have not committed violent crimes.

  • Ever wonder what cinnamon and lesbians would taste like? (Wait, don’t answer that.) Thanks to Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, we can all find out when the band teams up with NYC’s Momofuku Milk Bar to debut a soft-serve treat named after the track “Cinnamon & Lesbians.” Both the ice cream and the next Malkmus album Wig Out At Jagbags will be out January 7th, and the band will stop by The Neptune on Saturday, April 12th.

  • The Roots’ ?uestlove made a guest appearance on Bravo’s TV cooking competition show Top Chef last night, judging a quickfire challenge on noneother than fried-chicken drumsticks (Get it? ‘Cause he’s a drummer!). [Spin]

  • On his Twitter account, Moby has been teasing the release of “the best music video ever made. Ever. In the history of ever. Ever.” — and boy, he was not kidding. Watch the lyric video for the track “Almost Home,” featuring an all-star cast of critters from the Best Friends Animal Society adoption center in Los Angeles. [Consequence of Sound]
