Musician Dave Depper honored us by taking time out of his busy schedule of flying around inside an animated dreamland to inform us about all the wonderful Pet Shop Boys music we've been missing out on. Thank you, Dave.
The Stranger's super-cool music editor, Emily Nokes, wrote this superb piece on Chastity Belt, the band you might know from that dumb BuzzFeed list of awkward band photos. But have you actually heard Chastity Belt? You have not. They are awesome. Thank you, Emily.
Old Light is speedily wrapping up their incredibly ambitious, yearlong, five-cassette project, and the excellent Ryan White climbed to the top of a mountain with the band's Garth Klippert to talk about it. Well, not a mountain, exactly. A mount. Mount Tabor, to be exact. It sort of counts. Thank you, Ryan.
Ryan J. Prado does not speak Dutch, but he intrepidly interviewed Dutch musician Jacco Gardner, who makes exquisite baroque pop. Thank you, Ryan.
