  • You may have seen those "Life of Pedro" tees that Kanye West has been selling. Well, now Father John Misty offers his own version: Life of Padre.

  • Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis is releasing a solo album under the moniker Sad13. Check out the first single from her debut Slugger, out November 11th via Carpark.

Check out the song "Everything Is Happening Today" below, off her forthcoming full-length If You See Me, Say Yes out September 23rd via Partisan. [Consequence of Sound]
