We've had Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic and The Xcerts, now here's another Scottish rock band who look destined for great things. Fatherson released their debut album I Am An Island last week, and it's full to the brim with shimmering hooks and frontman Ross Leighton's charming brogue. Scroll down to check out the very slightly NSFW video for new track "I Like Not Knowing".

Our interview with Boys On The Radio can be found here, the new project from Lovedrug's Michael Shepard.
I would say what balanced out Lovedrug, as far as the writing was concerned, was the other guys in Lovedrug were very much more into the indie side of music, the cooler, underground music. I was always kind of the pop guy who brought some of the hookier stuff to the music. So when I sat down to do a record by myself, essentially Im writing pop songs. Ive been going through this huge 80s thing lately. I was largely influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, stuff like that that I grew up loving, kind of writing from a modern standpoint but with a little bit of that...

The band started between two brothers who just wanted to play their music.

If you caught our discussion thread yesterday, you probably noticed where we were heading. The first quarter of 2014 is officially over and I'm officially overwhelmed with new releases; I feel like the best are falling through the cracks. Do you feel like you're missing out as well? Well, have no fear! We're here with a special quarterly edition of the AbsolutePlaylist, highlighting some of our favorites from the past three months. Check out the playlist in both Spotify and Rdio renditions in the replies.

Again, we've got two interviews today, courtesy of Left Behind and My Space Invaders. You can read them here and here.

We've certainly had an impressive first quarter of 2014 with new releases. Who's your front runner so far for Album of the Year? What albums have you connected with from January, February, or March of this year? Have there been releases that have flown under the radar that you want to share? Head to the replies for a discussion about everything you've loved about 2014 so far and make sure you return tomorrow for a special treat!

Edit: Head over to our special edition of the AbsolutePlaylist featuring some of our favorites from the past quarter.

Our interview with Local Natives can be found here.
We never came into the band being like, All right, were going to be this grunge-down, indie band forever, or were going to be a mainstream band. Were just doing what we want to do, making the music were happy with and proud of. If that reaches to a larger audience, awesome. Like I said, were totally content with where we are now. Hopefully, it keeps going in a positive direction and we can keep this as our careers.

Lower Lifes filled out our interview. Read it here.
Id get rid of lyric videos. My favorite part of listening to an album growing up was NOT knowing the words and piecing together my own version until someone corrected me. I SWORE the Fall Out Boy lyric was "a loaded gun complex" for the longest time when that album came out, but things like that would be so memorable. Now you watch a lyric video and read along and you just think someone had to type these awful words and coordinate them with the song. Im so sorry."

Welcome back to AbsolutePlaylist, a new feature that will bring you a playlist each Friday from one of our staff members or a special guest to ring your weekend in the right way. This week I've put together some songs designed to help you shake off any lingering traces of the winter blues you might have, because hopefully by now the weather is warming up where you are. And if it's not, I'm very sorry...maybe try pulling up YouTube videos of daffodils blossoming and birds chirping? I dunno. Either way, there are Rdio and Spotify playlists for your enjoyment in the replies.

Yulianna filled out our interview. Here's what she had to say.
I wanted to have a name with an exotic ring to it but that could work in classical as well as the pop industry.

You can check out our interview with G-Eazy here. We talk about his headlining tour and his upcoming debut album, which includes guest features from E-40 and A$AP Ferg.

Today's interview comes from UK metalcore band Castor Troy. Read it here.
There are so many genres on the new album it's crazy, there literally is something for everyone. The lyrics are very well wrote, they're all based on real life events so tend to strike more of a chord with people. The music is wrote in such a way that we have utilised low tunings and orchestral instruments to create sombre moods and add depth to the tracks.

Get Busy Living filled out our interview; check it out.
It's terrible, all of the bands that actually write music and tour never get that exposure. The mainstream is horrible and all the artists that struggle should be on the radio instead of them.
