  • When someone invites you into a van, you should probably run, but if that someone is actor Rainn Wilson, and you happen to be the 6’4″ Win Butler of Arcade Fire, you’re probably okay. Join them in the backseat for this fun chat in the latest episode of Wilson’s Metaphysical Milkshake web series. [Pitchfork]

  • 2014 is off to a great start for Del the Funky Homosapien, who just released a surprise new full-length, titled Iller Than Most, that you can stream below. As he writes on his Soundcloud page, “This is a new FREE LP that is futuristic and fun- but still on some Hiphop shit. Lyrically ill but fun to listen to, nothing super heavy. I did the production on it as well. Hope yall enjoy it, peace.” [Consequence of Sound]
