Dylan Rieder, Natas, Greyson Fletcher, Ryan Wilson, Jack Fardell, Alex Gray, and Chippa Wilson tearing NZ to bits. Pointless hyping it up. Just watch. It’s brilliant.

Oceana, WA is an old coal mining town surrounded by an amazing landscape. However, it's home to an Oxycontin epidemic. High school girls battle $800 a day habits, while families struggle to support their children, but have full prescription bottles.
Oxyana is a new documentary about Oceana by Sean Dunne, an American based director, who became widely recognised for his online documentary American Juggalo.

Very rarely is it acceptable to buy a skate deck with the intention of never, ever, ever setting it up. This is one of those occasions where it’d be okay. There are 130 of these Evan Hecox-designed, Ten-years-of-Monster-Children Chocolate boards, and if you want one you can score one by simply being faster than everyone else who is reading these words right now.

Since Record Store Day a bunch of LP's have been surfacing from Boards of Canada. All the records featured the same short atmospheric track, but they all had a different code read out at the end.
On the 27th of April, Cartoon Network aired this commercial, and earlier today the Boards of Canada official site had been changed to redirect to here. Once entering this code: 699742628315717228936557813386519225, you're shown this video and sent to the pre-order of the band's new album, the first new material since 2005. A damn good way to get your fans thinking.
Trent Reznor's band How To Destroy Angels played last weekend at Coachella, and that was only their second performance, ever. For this show they spent over a year perfecting a stage setting that emulated the feeling of an art installation. Coachella have just released and clip documenting how and why the band chose to play their show like this. Watch the setting in action here as the band play 'Parasite'.
