Of Montreal Share New Song 'Empyrean Abattoir' from New Album 'Aureate Gloom' [LISTEN]

Buzz 14:18PM EDT

Georgia psych-pop crew Of Montreal have shared a new track titled "Empyrean Abattoir" from their upcoming album "Aureate Gloom," which you can check out below. The song is one of the best things Of Montreal have put out in years, starting with a vaguely mournful disco/post-punk groove but eventually shifting into a snottier punk jam, reminiscent of David Bowie's early 1970s work, such as "Queen Bitch." Frontman Kevin Barnes has said that "Aureate Gloom" was inspired by the "mid-to-late-'70s music scene in New York," and based on this song he is not messing around. You can check out Of Montreal's 'Empyrean Abattoir" here, via "Stereogum":READ MORE

Katherine Heigl Loves Having a Creative Say as Executive Producer on 'State of Affairs'

Off-Key 17:23PM EDT

Katherine Heigl is one of those actresses who has the kind of reputation that precedes her. She left "Grey's Anatomy" to star in a string of films, totally expecting to morph into a big-screen star. That did not exactly happen and her difficult reputation kind of took on a life of its own. For a while Heigl was having a tough time finding a job, and then along came "State of Affairs." While she was said to be totally against the idea of returning to prime-time television for the longest time, she is working as an executive producer on her new NBC show, which means a lot of creative control is now in the palm of her hand. Heigl was interviewed by The Wrap while at a fundraising gala for The Trevor Project, an organization connected with gay teen suicide prevention, and she said she never expected to enjoy her new role on the NBC drama as much as she has been.READ MORE

LAPD Turns Investigation of Allegations that Casey Kasem Was Abused By Wife Jean Over to D.A.'s Office

Off-Key 10:30AM EDT

Can you believe that nearly six months after radio icon Casey Kasem's death he still has yet to be buried? Jean Kasem has kept her late husband's body in Oslo, Norway, where she claims he should be buried because of his family's roots. Casey's children launched an elder abuse investigation against Jean and the LAPD has finally confirmed that it has turned its findings over to the D.A.'s office. According to TMZ, it has already said that it is unlikely that any charges will be filed due to lack of evidence against Jean. That lack of evidence is the real issue here, and Casey's children believe she has fought an autopsy to protect herself. In fact, not only is Casey still unburied, but he has yet to be embalmed, which means any evidence of mistreatment is literally disintegrating away. Casey's daughter Kerri Kasem has especially pushed for the investigation because she believes Jean's neglect led to infected bed sores that may have played a part in her father's death.READ MORE

Kim Kardashian Says That She Posed Full Frontal Because She Feels Good About Herself

Off-Key 13:56PM EDT

Kim Kardashian attempted to break the Internet last week with a series of nude photos that were featured in the Winter 2014 issue of "Paper" magazine. Now, after the dust has settled, Kardashian gets to spend the next week talking to everyone about actually doing this shoot, and she started with an interview with Australia's "The Project." Before teaching host Rove McManus how to try and balance a champagne glass on his bottom, she chatted about deciding to strip down for the shoot. "I was so honored and excited to work with [photographer Jean-Paul Goude] because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to make myself feel confident. As a role model I'm not saying anyone else should do that, but for me it was an art project and it taught me to do what you want to do. I'm never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me, I hope other people like them."READ MORE

Janay Palmer Does Her Best to Downplay Being Knocked Out by Ray Rice in New Interview with Matt Lauer

Off-Key 16:26PM EDT

Janay Palmer has spent the last few months basically hiding out, not allowing the general public to have much more than a slight glimpse into her personal life, and who can blame her? After that now-infamous elevator surveillance video went public, showing her now-husband Ray Rice knocking her out with one punch, it was a real turning point in her life. Palmer chose quite quickly to stand by her husband and support him, even going so far as to lambaste the NFL for punishing Rice for his violent actions. It was pretty clear Palmer was taking the "stand by your man" approach to the whole scandal and, in doing so, she kept her silence for the most part. At least until NBC's "Today" managed to grab the first official interview with her. Make no mistake, it is actually Rice that NBC wants to hear from, and while he never signed on the dotted line with the network, he was there when Matt Lauer sat down with Palmer in the couple's Maryland home late last week. How much he actually said is still unknown, but Lauer appeared happy with the outcome of the chat.READ MORE

Off-Key 12:53PM EDT

Nearly everyone was stunned to learn that Robin Williams had committed suicide last August. He never hid the fact that he had demons and spoke honestly about his battles with drug and alcohol abuse. Williams was one of those actors that seemed to embrace the struggle and always found his way through, somehow. At least until Aug. 11 when he was found hanging in his northern California home. A final autopsy report was released yesterday and its' findings were a bit shocking- there was not a trace of illegal drugs or alcohol in his system at the time of his death.READ MORE
