It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of AV Club. One of the big reasons why is their weekly AV Talk podcasts, where they cover various pop culture topics like movies, tv shows, music, books, etc. This past week’s was a tv-focused discussion between site contributors Leonard Pierce, Noel Murray, and Keith Phipps on “how blogging, Twitter, and DVRs are changing the way we watch our shows.” Well worth the 30 or so minutes.

Po Po are two brothers signed to Diplo‘s Mad Decent label and who have been touring with Sleigh Bells for the past couple of weeks. While their full length is currently in the mixing stages and set for release in a few months, they have come out with a mix tape of rough cuts and live tracks worth checking out. My personal favorite is “Bummer Summer.” Have a listen or download now over at Mad Decent Bandcamp.
