    Memorial Day (duh)

    News of the Day:

    + Grimes announced via Twitter that she will release her new album in October. When exactly, though, will be a “surprise.” In Grimes’ words, “cuz I want fans to get it b4 press and the tracks should be heard together.” It will feature “real instrumentals” and will be unlike any of her previous tracks.

    + Lana Del Rey also announced that she will be releasing her next album, Honeymoon, in September. Fall’s looking really, really good.

    + In heartwarming news, Russell the cat, a burn victim feline who has spent the past year at a North Carolina veterinary clinic, has been snuggling with other sick animals, like a baby deer and many, many puppies.
