I asked for a nickname for you, our loyal Louder readers, and you responded! A few of my favorite suggestions: Loudites, D'Ears and Knights of the Sound Table. But while discussing the dilemma with my cubicle neighbor Nicole Herrington, I may have come up with my own solution: Dear Receivers. It reminds me of my old Yahoo! music blog, The Amplifier (RIP). But its spirit lives on at @nytimesmusic (very much alive!). 
I'm off to listen to the Kendrick Lamar album (our review will be online later this weekend), so here’s an overview of this week's Louder: We’ve got a fascinating interview with J. Cole, a report from Chuck Berry’s funeral, news about the return of Monterey Pop and loads of opinions about the Chainsmokers. Enjoy!
