Sufjan Stevens' cover of Arthur Russell's "A Little Lost" can be found in the replies. Via Pitchfork:
I like “A Little Lost” because it’s all about kissing. I love kissing. If I could kiss all day, I would. I can’t stop thinking about kissing. I like kissing more than sex because there’s no end to it. You can kiss forever. You can kiss yourself into oblivion. You can kiss all over the body. You can kiss yourself to sleep. And when you wake up, you can’t stop thinking about kissing. Dammit, I can’t get anything done because I’m so busy thinking about kissing. Kissing is madness! But it’s absolute paradise, if you can find a good kisser.

Read my review and peep my photos from the Mansfield, MA stop of the 2014 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Asking Alexandria, Body Count and more.
The biggest buzz came from Body Count, the rap-metal crossover group fronted by hip-hop icon Ice-T. Ice-T - these days a household name who is perhaps better known for his acting career than his music - certainly doesn't need to be doing this, but he's there for the love of it. He even brought his son, Ice Morrow, on tour to perform backing vocals. Most of the crowd seemed to go to the set purely out of curiosity, but it didn't take long for them to get roped in by Ice's showmanship.

Joyce Manor on that whole defend pop-punk thing:
When we wrote and recorded our first record, it was before "Defend Pop Punk" and that type of shit. Once it came out, we were very embraced by that community, and we weren’t necessarily comfortable with that. So we kind of made this reactionary record where it sort of focused on what we weren’t good at, and trying to succeed that way. But yeah, you should just make a record you want to make and not think about people’s expectations.

A new iPhone app called "Next" looks to do for music discovery what Tinder did for dating.
Musicians use Next to record short videos of their music -- anywhere from 10 seconds to 3 minutes. Users then log on and watch 30-second excerpts of the songs, swiping left to dismiss and swiping right to like. If you find an artist you're interested in, you can follow them on the app or tap to share via SMS, email and Twitter.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer is reporting that the musician Kasey Anderson has been sentented to nearly four years in prison for an elaborate con.
By early 2013, Vancouver resident Kasey Anderson had already been caught bilking 30 investors in a non-existent benefit album for the “West Memphis Three.” Rather than change his ways, though, federal prosecutors say he soaked two more victims, both old friends. [...] To court investors, Anderson claimed Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and several other high-profile musicians would be on the album. Profits from the album and an associated concert series were to go to the West Memphis Three Legal Defense Fund.

Combichrist have removed Blood on the Dance Floor from their upcoming tour.
As you’ve seen with all of our tours, when we select our support acts, we attempt to bring acts that will help introduce Combichrist to fans outside of our fanbase. This has worked well for us in the past, and it was in this spirit that we invited Blood On The Dance Floor to tour with us. Like all announcements, we knew that this decision would be met with some concern but we thought that the different styles would be the source of conversation. We were not aware of the controversy about their past behavior. It has been difficult to read everything posted today; our sole goal is to bring you a kick ass tour that...
