Since it’s nearly impossible to keep up with all the features that flood social media feeds all week, we did some of the digging for you. Here’s a handful of stories that are worth a click this weekend:

- FADER explored whether do-it-yourself DJs have a future in Soundcloud as it turns to major labels for funding and support. They also tackled Drake’s self-referential co-signs.

- NPR examined the mid-career crises of bands like TV on the Radio.

- Pitchfork made a solid case for the enduring influence of Pink Floyd.

- SPIN played Ariel Pink some of pop’s most bizarre hit singles.

- The Quietus interviewed (former?) Roxy Music frontman Bryan Ferry.

- Azealia Banks told The Guardian about her myriad feuds, from Disclosure to Perez Hilton.

- It’s more of a longview than a longread, but Dazed’s grime documentary is worth a look.

- And on Wondering Sound, we broke down Ariel Pink’s music videos, spoke to Jimmy Page, and riffed on sexuality and Rihanna.
