MICHAEL CERA talks to Stereogum about his surprise albim, True That.

THE THURSTON MOORE BAND plays a near-accidental debut gig.

DEV HYNES' muscial journey is traced by The Guardian.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles repeats atop the chart with 28.4 million; that's a 57 percent drop, but the reboot's 117 million domestic nearly recoups its production budget. Guardians of the Galaxy repeats in second with 24.7 million, on a leggier 41 percent drop. Guardians --which has already beaten the theatrical runs for both Thor movies and the first Captain America flick--now seems likely to beat out Transformers 4 for the biggest film of the summer.  It needs to make about a half-billion to profit, and likely will, given that it has yet to open in some big European and Asian markets.  The ill-timed debut of Let's Be Cops still shows with 26 million against a 17 million budget.  The Expendables 3 underperformed with a 16.2 million fourth-place debut (earlier installments opened at 34.8 and 28.6 million).That seems like a flop, but this franchise has been incraesingly big overseas, so this may not be the end of the series.The opening of The Giver rounds out the Top 5 with 12.8 million, which sounds bad until you note the budget was only 25 million.

UKRAINE: The so-called Russian aid convoy was virtually empty. A cynic might think the entire purpose was to provoke. Ukrainian forces have advanced into one of the last remaining separatist strongholds in a significant breakthrough in the civil war.

LEBANON: The US issued a travel warning for Lebanon noting that the Islamic State, the Al Nusrah Front, the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, and Hezbollah all operate there, and stressed the increasing frequency of suicide bombings.

SYRIA: The Islamic State clashed with regime forces in Raqqah in Al Tabaqa; and in Aleppo, where the IS also battled the Islamic Front, the Al Nusrah Front, and Kurdish forces. In Deir Izzour, the Islamic State told families of Labor City oilfield workers to vacate their homes so foreign fighters could move in. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the IS has executed 700 al-Sheitaat tribesmen in Deir Izzour over the past two weeks; the head of the tribe called for other tribes to join in resisting the IS. The Al Nusrah Front and the Islamic Front fought regime forces in Hama and Aleppo. The Islamic State is also said to be closing in on the Islamic Front stronghold of Marea in Aleppo.
