CLRVYNT, a new music website, has launched.

"This is our mission at CLRVYNT: to serve the rock communities as best we can. Despite the ridiculous think-pieces that you see day in and day out, we believe that rock is not dead, never will be, and is only getting more challenging and interesting every single day. Trends come and go, but as we’ve seen time and time again, movements start when a genre is seemingly at its lowest point — look at the reverence given to names like Kool Herc, Darkthrone and Neutral Milk Hotel. Good music of every type has always existed; it just depends on how hard you want to look for it."

Belle Boggs talked to Weekend Edition about her memoir The Art of Waiting.
