" —Dan in Real Life director Peter Hedges discusses his casting process for the film [Coming Soon]

"On the first two records that I made, I think a lot of '60s references were made, in the context of those records. With this record, I suddenly start hearing that it's the '70s. So the next record will be my '80s record, and then the '90s record, when I get into my Gin Blossoms/Blind Melon phase." Devendra Banhart prepares himself for "Hey Jealousy" levels of fame [Pitchfork]

"You know, I had to sign a pregnancy waiver to get into the Avalon last night. I was actually really annoyed. I mean, what do they do if someone comes in in a wheelchair. Make them sign a wheelchair waiver? They must have had some kind of lawsuit. Maybe they were scared I was going to trip acid or something, then turn out to have a deformed child." —Pregnant CMJ performer and Mates of State member Kori Hammel [Black Book]
