* It's "Xmas in July" over at Billboard, which means Paramore on the cover in peppermint stripes/Christmas tree costumes/bad sweaters/footie pajamas. Have they forgotten the reason for the season? (Via @yelyahwilliams. I think my subscription ran out or something.)

* The New Yorker's Sasha Frere-Jones opines on The Dead Weather: "The band isn't doing much that Mountain and Budgie weren't already doing thirty-six years ago, but those guys aren't working as much as they used to. There's room."

* By way of Brooklyn Vegan, we find out that everybody's favorite brotherhood, JEFF the Brotherhood, will be touring with Shonen Knife this fall. And they're on Twitter--with possibly the coolest background image ever. JTB have a new record on the way in October, called Heavy Days.
