Brendan Kelly's written a new blog addressing stolen photos, victim shaming, and a whole lot more.
So, yeah. I'm upset at the way that the current spate of "hacked celebrity nudes" has created a noxious victim blaming firestorm here on the internet, stemming mostly from everyone wanting to see Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton naked, feeling guilty, and then shifting that guilt onto those girls as to feel a little bit better about looking at their intimate photos. Pretty lame, even for you, Millhouse.

It's a beautiful day here in Toronto today, and naturally, my playlist is full of upbeat and feel good songs. The Castle Walls' latest songs have made their way onto said playlist, one of them being "Top Of The Morning" for which we're premiering a video (below) today. The brother and sister duo draw inspiration from indie pop, folk rock, and electronic music, creating a new youthful and lively sound. Head to the replies to get a glimpse of what's to come from this remarkable act.

Deadmau5 is trying to trademark his mouse-ear-mask-helmet thing in the US -- apparently Disney isn't too happy with that.
In the docs, Disney states its ears have been a thing for more than 60 years, and says granting Deadmau5 the trademark would damage its business in the U.S. and around the world.

I find myself being extremely picky with music festivals in my old age, but the ridiculous(ly awesome) lineup at Riot Fest Toronto left me no choice but to make plans to attend. Over the past few weeks, I have been trying to finalize a schedule so I can make sure to catch every band I'm eager to see, but it took me only a few minutes upon starting on an actual list to say "Screw it, I'm just going to roam around, enjoy good music as I go, and have some delicious food and beer." That seems about as solid of a plan as it gets with my experience at festivals, except there are 5 bands at this year's Toronto Riot Fest that I will most definitely make sure to see -- rain or shine. Head to the...

Remember The Crimson Armada? They were a metalcore band that was gaining some steam a few years back, until vocalist Saud Ahmed decided to go in a new direction - The Holy Guile is that new direction. Today, we're premiering a new song from the band, "California Gold", a tribute to Mitch Lucker, who passed away in a motorcycle accident in November of 2012. The song is from the band's upcoming album OG (mixed by Joey Sturgis), which drops September 30th.

Dan Campbell just posted a photo of The Wonder Years' new practice space with the caption "Since our last practice spot was condemned by the board of health, we'll be writing our next record in this new luxurious practice space ... until it too gets condemned by the board of health." It seems as though they'll be getting to work on LP4 sooner rather than later.

Counting Crows have an excellent new album out today and we have a special interview with Adam Duritz talking about it. Check it out here.
I donít think anyone knows what sells records. There is literally no one who thought our first record was going to sell that many. Thereís no way. Nobody did. It just happens sometimes. You canít manipulate popular culture. Well, I guess sometimes you can, but weíre not in that business. The smartest thing we always seemed to do was do what we wanted to do, since thatís what got us there in the first place. Our best records were always going to be made by us, so we just made the records we wanted to make. Thereís a certain truth in that that bears...
