In two days, the Federal Communications Commission is scheduled to vote on a number of sweeping internet regulations, which will regulate internet service providers as public utilities. They’ll also set standards on connection speed and pricing, and they’ll generally prevent internet users from being at the mercy of internet service providers. The measures are expected […]
The Strokes, Wilco, Pixies, Tame Impala, and Neutral Milk Hotel will all head to Atlanta this May.
If it weren’t for his job, Matthew Barzun could be mistaken for one of us: his favorite album of the year is the War On Drugs’ Lost In The Dream, he loves Guided By Voices, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Chvrches … but he’s also the United States’ official ambassador to the United Kingdom.

A tribute to his late father and brothers.
Colbert added one last coda you probably didn't notice that has a chilling backstory.
Last night, Stephen Colbert ended his incredible nine-year run as host of The Colbert Report, airing his final episode. In the show’s last-ever segment, Colbert brought a vast and head-spinning array of celebrity guests to the stage, and they all teamed up to sing the 1939 standard “We’ll Meet Again.” (It’s the same song that [...]

The Neutral Milk Hotel reunion tour has been a glorious thing to behold, regardless of how you feel about their no-cameras policy. (And yes, having witnessed the full-band spectacle at Coachella and in Columbus this year, I must sheepishly admit that it was even better than Jeff Mangum’s hair-raising solo gigs; The Edge, however, remains [...]
Neutral Milk Hotel has announced a run of spring dates that it says will be its “last tour for the foreseeable future.” The group reformed in 2013 and has been playing pretty steadily ever since, but thinks “it’s time to say goodbye for the never ending now” and is extending its “deepest gratitude to all the beautiful people” who came to its shows.

R.E.M., Neutral Milk Hotel, and of Montreal are donating to the restoration of the St. Mary’s Church steeple in Athens, Georgia. The steeple was once attached to the church in which R.E.M. played their first show in 1980. The church is no longer a performance space and has been mostly torn down, but the “R.E.M. [...]
Bono and The Edge weigh in on a number of your favorite artists.
It’s become so easy, of late, to think of U2 in international-corporation terms that it’s weirdly surprising to imagine them as human beings who listen to music sometimes. But in a new Rolling Stone story, both Bono and the Edge have a few words on younger bands. Bono, for instance, is all the way into [...]
