— Crystal Castles have announced a November arrival for the follow-up to their 2010 self-titled platter. Check out ‘Plague,’ a track from the as-yet-untitled disc that’s currently streaming online. [Pitchfork]

— “‘Backlines’ is my way of high kicking anxiety in the face,” Stars singer Amy Millan says of the latest tune offered as a free download from the band’s new album, ‘The North,’ which hits shelves earlier this month. [Spinner]

— We can’t quite decide if this new video for First Aid Kit’s latest single, ‘Wolf,’ is totally mind blowing …  or shows of the young Swedes’ ages a little too much. Either way, the song is a keeper, and the video is at least entertaining the first time through. [Chart Attack]

— On the other hand, we’re certain the new animated video for the Flying Lotus jam ‘Putty Boy Strut’ is totally mind blowing. The tune is from FL’s ‘Until the Quiet Comes,’ which just dropped. [Death + Taxes]

Neil Young, who is finally publishing an autobiography after years of avoiding the subject of himself, talks at length about the book, titled ‘Waging Heavy Peace,’ in a new New York Times magazine profile. “At 65, it seems that I may not be at the peak of my rock ’n’ roll powers,” says Young. “But that is not for sure.” [Ultimate Classic Rock]
