In a new profile with Distinct, Fleet Foxesʼ Christian Wargo revealed that he and Robin Pecknold have been discussing the idea of getting the band back together.
“It’s not, like, ‘announced’ or anything, and none of us really knew it was coming, but it’s happening,” assured Wargo, who also spends his time as a woodworker and illustrator. “Possibly unofficially at this stage, but it’s definitely a thing.”
Chris DeVille, writing for Stereogum, looks at how Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo may be the first number one album with practically zero actual “sales.”
Pablo still isn’t on sale anywhere besides Kanye’s site, and even if Tidal reported the limited number of Tidal TLOP purchases to Nielsen SoundScan, those sales happened weeks ago. But HITS Daily Double and @chartnews report that the album is projected to accumulate about 60,000 equivalent units based almost entirely on TEA and SEA and will likely ascend to #1 on the Billboard 200 next week.

The Aquabatsʼ Bat Commander has issued an apology on Facebook for an insensitive post last week.
Friday, I reposted a photo of the marquee at a local shop in our area. Every couple of weeks they come up with some kind of silly messaging on their marquee for the people driving by the store to read. I’ve posted a few of these in the past…but Friday’s post was a mistake. Initially, I read it as a silly topical way to say that the shop has wetsuits that can fit anyone and everyone. I realize that it was actually in poor taste and insensitive to the transgender community. I honestly didn’t mean any offense and unfortunately, I didn’t think too much of it at the time of my repost. I realize now that many people were hurt by this and I feel bad. This was my poor judgment to post it.
Angels and Airwavesʼ new EP, Chasing Shadows, is up for sale.
