Paste profiled the band Choir of Young Believers and the band's new album Grasque.

"Grasque still embodies all the adjectives that could easily be applied to previous Choir of Young Believer releases. (See: Yearning. Autumnal. Emotive.) Still swinging at musical fences, Makrigiannis has lifted his work out of the orchestral pop realm (bye bye guitars and orchestral refrains, hello synths) dipping into electro, soul and hip-hop beats in equal parts. Lead single 'Face Melting' even incorporates a dusting of Auto-Tune. (Because why not?) To hear Makrigiannis tell it, the single, a melancholic meditation on the idea of shape-shifting, became a personal anthem of sorts.".

Stream audio of a 1964 interview with Harper Lee about her novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

BuzzFeed kicked off its series of essays by women about Hillary Clinton with a piece by Eileen Myles.
