Books

Private Empire documents one entity’s harassment of environmental scientists; dabbling in random, remote wars; and keeping its secrets out of sight of Congress. A rogue spy agency, you ask? Nope. It’s Exxon Mobil, one of the biggest oil companies in existence. Digging into everything from the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon tragedy, investigative journalist Steve Coll reports the inner workings of the sketchy behemoth. Make sure you buy a desert island along with this book — it clocks in at 685 pages.

Album

These Southern California punk vets have been tearing through blistering underground anthems since 1988. All or Nothing, out May 1, is the band’s first album since singer and co-founder Jim Lindberg left in 2009. In his place is Zoli Téglás, who formerly fronted another SoCal punk outfit called Ignite. So don’t fret about any changes in artistic direction. A teaser of All Or Nothing reveals plenty of angry rants, double bass and psyche-shredding guitars.

App

Have you ever put down your sweet copy of The Inlander and still felt the need to read something endlessly awesome? (We don’t blame you.) Try the Longform app for the iPad. This cornucopia of deep-thinking writing boasts publications such as The Atlantic, Mother Jones, The Awl, A.V. Club, National Geographic, Grantland and Esquire. “It’s a digital magazine on steroids,” says Chris Walters of Booksprung. “It’s an infinite magazine, a magazine multiplex. It’s a portable reading room where new issues arrive daily.”
