“The former is a collaborative EP that sees Dear working alongside Fever Ray producers Van Rivers and the Subliminal Kid, and The Drums’ frontman Jonathan Pierce, while Beams is the full-length follow up to Dear’s acclaimed last album, Black City.

02. Student Spotlight: Kleenex Desktop Companion

03. Corona Beer Board Game

“6 beers and a board game — yet same weight as before. Simply flatten the box into the game, and use your bottle-caps as the game pieces. Dice and game cards are downloaded to your smartphone via scanning the QR code. Only one download is needed for up to 6 people to play. Drink, socialize, and have fun— Corona isn’t just another boring beer company and we’ve got the board to show it.” (potw)
