Rookie Magazine music editor Jessica Hopper talks about her recent piece for Buzzfeed -- “How Selling Out Saved Indie Rock” -- about the rise of ad dollars in independent music.

And the Juice Vocal Ensemble -- a small English choir that sings contemporary works including juicy (or Juice-y) arrangements of Guns N Roses, Mariah Carey, Kraftwerk and more -- performs in the Soundcheck studio.
