What did you miss this week?

Another Friday rolls around and it's been another big week of news - deaths, rumours, scandals and Gotye.

On Monday we reported that Eduard Khil, known to the internet as Mr Trololo, had died at the age of 77. A Soviet-era singing sensation, he enjoyed two years of surprise fame and was one of the genuine feel-good stories of the internet.

360 revealed that despite his success he is only recently off the dole. Then he was hitting out at the haters and standing up for the Eminem generation.

With the news of their new album, can we put Grizzly Bear on the line-up for Harvest? You've got more hope praying for that than you do praying for Johnny Depp to join The Black Keys on tour, despite the fact that he played guitar with them at an awards ceremony that very few people cared about otherwise.

Musejumped the shark with an album teaser that featured dubstep. Surely they had a bigger budget than this.

Underground Sydney act Charge Group gave their honest opinion of the Australian music scene, it's just not big enough to be too creative.

Tasmania's Dewayne Everettsmith scored a huge boost to his career hopes with the launch of the new 'classy' Tourism Australia campaign, which he sings. Lara Bingle he ain't.

We get the feeling we haven't heard the last of The Amity Affliction's cover controversy.

Is Gotye at the end of his dream American run?

And gee, can talk some crazy shit sometimes.
