Interview with Minus The Bear: Omnivorous

Minus The Bear is a breed of band that exhausts music journalism’s hyphen-crazy classifications. Prog-indie-experimental-math-pop? What does that mean, anyway?

Paramore: Connected: Interview with Jeremy Davis

What almost overshadows the buzz around Paramore’s latest album, brand new eyes, is one factor that almost made the record not even happen. Rumors that the band was in talks of quitting preceded the album’s release and came to life in several tracks like their first single, “Ignorance.” If …
