Odd Future, Rock the r3volution, tUnE-yArDs, and More in This Week's Issue


This week's issue is a weird one. In our feature, Danny Torgersen and Trevor Denton of Captain Squeegee and Sun Ghost discuss the Rock the R3volution tour, a musical celebration of Ron Paul. Yeah -- as strange as that is.

In our Shrapnel section, Chris Piel examines the potentially long-lasting appeal of Odd Future. (you know, if they members of the group can quit smacking photogs like shitbags), and M.T. Richards speaks with Marill Garbus, the woman behind the bonkers pop of tUnE-yArDs.

We've also got shorter previews on AraabMuzik, Boots Electric, PAWL, YUS, and Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears.
