• YouTube’s Red subscription offer has launched in Australia, so for a monthly fee of AUS$11.99 folks down under can strip the site of ads.

• Rage Against The Machine are doing something. Possibly with Chuck D. Possibly not with all four members of the band.

• Imagine a world where Willow Smith is making music with Michael Cera. Stop imagining, you already live in that world.

• Richard Ashcroft has made a new video. He hopes you will watch it (it is for the song ‘Hope’).

• BadBadNotGood have announced that they will release their new album ‘IV’ on 8 Jul. Here’s the first single ‘Time Moves Slow’, featuring Sam Herring of Future Islands

• Highasakite have released a video for latest single ‘Golden Ticket’. They’ll be playing three headline shows following their Great Escape appearance this week, including at Village Underground in London on 24 May.

• Japanese rock group Band-Maid will release their debut international album ‘Brand New Maid’ on 17 Jun. Here’s opening track ‘The Non-Fiction Days’.
