Hit the replies to watch a video for Budweiser and Jay Z's "Made in America" video series that spotlights Seattle. The video features Ben Gibbard, Tacocat, La Luz, and the staff of Sub Pop talking abot their city. More episodes will be airing leading up to the Made in America Festival later this year.

Read my review and check out my photos of Day 2 of the Boston Calling Music Festival, which featured performances from Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Frank Turner and more.
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls may have put on the best performance of Boston Calling. The pace was set immediately as they opened with "Photosynthesis," in which Turner wailed on his trusty acoustic and guitarist Ben Lloyd ripped a solo on the electric mandolin. It was Turner's 1,568th show, as he proudly told the audience, but his boundless energy (perhaps owed to his hardcore roots) made it feel one-of-a-kind.

Death Cab For Cutie's much-loved record Transatlanticism turns 10 this October and Barsuk will be releasing an anniversary edition digitally and on vinyl. Both versions will come with a download code for a collection of demos from the album. That collection will also be available separately if you already own the LP.

Salon has posted an article looking at the reaction some fans of The Postal Service had upon learning that the opening act for their recent tour was Big Freedia. The title of the article, "White music fans are afraid of difference: When Postal Service fans get aggressively upset over a black opening act, that's evidence of a bigger problem," may turn some readers off -- but the article is definitely worth the read and discussion.
Maybe the most pissed and confounded Twitter responders to Big Freediaís show hate rap, hip-hop and butts. But I bet they donít. They appear to be white people mostly in their late 20s like me, and I bet they consume all kinds of music. But they were walking...
