LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy is profiled in the New York Times.

Mr. Murphy’s own teenage life wasn’t so terrible, but he did feel isolated from any community of like-minded music geeks, a source of deep vexation that he now sees as liberating. “Nobody told me that if I liked the Minutemen, I wasn’t supposed to like Echo and the Bunnymen,” he said. “I didn’t have any of that scene pressure.”

The Observer reviews recently published "yummy-mommy lit" novels.

Dallas Morning News reporters share their favorite SXSW moments.

Wilco's Pat Sansone talks to the Boston Herald about hs other band, the Autumn Defense.

“In Wilco, I don’t get to sing, and the very physical act of singing is extremely liberating,” Sansone said. “That’s really why John and I started this band, so we could harmonize together.”

The New York Times magazine profiles Joe Hill, author of Heart-Shaped Box.

Low's Alan Sparhawk talks to Harp about the band's new album, Drums & Guns.

“To see another massive culture and see how on edge and fragile it is, is amazing,” he says. “I hesitate to say this is a political record, but I wanted to ask how much longer we’re going to sit here and watch people die.”

NPR is streaming Friday night's performance by Explosions in the Sky, Eluvium and the Paper Chase.
