Silver Medallion, Yuck, Pete Yorn and More in This Week's Issue

In this week's music feature newly-promoted Assistant Night and Day Editor Benjamin Leatherman talks with Oren J of Silver Medallion about the group's just-released album No One Ever Really Dies, which Oren finished after the tragic death of his partner Carnegie last fall.
