>>> Reports are swarming the web, indicating that Kurt Cobain’s ashes were stolen from Courtney Love’s L.A. home. No word yet on if she actually just mistakenly snorted them. (via

>>> Apparently cats and open spaces are big influences on the recording process for the third Yeah Yeah Yeahs album. Funny, we thought it was pouring beer on yourself and looking like a vampire.

They’re called Woodhands — and sadly, not Meathands or Hoovehands — and they have a record called Heart Attack coming out this fall on Toronto’s Paper Bag Records. Listen to a track here.
