Geezer Butler is a 65-year-old millionaire, and he’s taken up vegan activism in recent years.

Will Butler – “Anna” Video

Arcade Fire member Will Butler’s solo record Policy is shaping up to be mighty intriguing. Lead single “Take My Side” was a wiry blast of garage rock, a sound Butler veers far away from on the album’s second single. “Anna” is a propulsive new wave track laden with horns, synths, a striking piano figure, and [...]

Watch A Mini-Doc About How Riff Raff Got Jacked

Riff Raff recently announced his intentions of training with Hulk Hogan to become a professional wrestler, but apparently his lifestyle change began before his pursuit of WWE.

Mixtape Of The Week: Lil Wayne Sorry 4 The Wait 2

We have to talk about historical perspective when we’re talking about mixtapes, and we have Lil Wayne to thank and to blame for that. Lil Wayne wasn’t the only one releasing great mixtapes during his mid-’00s monster run, and he wasn’t even the only one who was releasing mixtapes that were arguably better than his [...]

Portland-based bedroom R&B purveyor Dan Vidmar hasn’t put out a new project since 2013?s Timeshare EP, but he revealed to Billboard today that a new mixtape entitled 4WZ will drop “any day now.” The first taste of the mixtape is “Right, Alright” a track that feels like a pillowy backtrack from the posturing of last [...]
