Today, I'm proud to bring you a new AbsolutePlaylist member submission! codeseven (Daniel) hails from North Carolina and has been a member with us since 2006. He explained a little bit about his selections: "As far as why I picked the songs I did, it's a bit hard to describe. Fall generates a feeling that you can't quite put into words, but you experience it through sight and sound. That's why I chose the songs I did. While I didn't necessarily focus on lyrical content, I went with what gave me that feeling. The songs that I can listen to with my eyes close and can perfectly picture the leaves falling off of the trees, the gray clouds covering the sky, the night air getting cooler on my...

East Forest's new gorgeous album Orbits premiered on Under The Gun Review today, drawing comparisons to The Album Leaf, Ólafur Arnalds, and The American Dollar. Take a listen, and if you're a fellow Portland, OR resident, make sure to attend his upcoming shows on November 20th and December 5th.

Come Wind have been working on a few new songs recently. We are premiering a lyric video for a new one called "If This Is You." Don't worry, it's not just a standard lyric video. Give it a watch in the replies. The band will release one more new single this year and then a full length in 2015. Fans of bands like The Graduate should enjoy this one.

Ben Weasel has written an open letter to Fat Mike about punching fans. Full thing is in the replies.
You and I both know this sort of thing barely registered a blip on the radar in punk not so long ago, but times have changed, my friend. It’s a brave new world, and you and I are a couple of dinosaurs, lumbering around, knocking into shit and making a nuisance of ourselves. The kids are not pleased. But not to worry – your PR expert Ben Weasel is here to save the day for you!

First, apologize. I know – you’ve done it. Not good enough. You need to apologize again. And again. And again. You need to keep apologizing for the rest of your life. People who had nothing to do with the...

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast took a little detour getting here ... however, through some mishaps and weirdness we find our way. Topics this week include: More soundscan/album counting discussion and how it works. We look at Taylor Swift's album sales and her decision to pull her albums off Spotify. Was this a good idea? Why would she do this? Is Spotify really the solution to the music industry's woes? Doubt it. Then we talk a little about the backlash bands see online when they get popular and speculate on the reasons behind this. This sort of devolves into some podcast therapy about dealing with the internet in general. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded...

A fan has started a Kickstarter to make a documentary about The Matches -- they're still about 30K short of their goal though.
Right now we have the production costs budgeted at $35,000. Maybe you are all, “Wow, that is a lot of money. I could buy a practical, compact car with that kind of moola.” You are correct. But a well-done documentary is way more than just a mere motor vehicle, friends. This doc might not aid in your physical travel, but mentally, emotionally, and maybe even spiritually, you’re in for a ride.

This has been submitted almost 50 times now ... yes, if you go to Brand New's merch store and click on "news" you will find a bunch of Latin text. This "Lorem ipsum" text is used by web designers and publishers to fill out designs with fake text so they can see how it'll look without having to come up with something to write each time. I don't believe it has anything to do with anything beside that. I do not, however, know what "Bone Thrower" means under the store dropdown. Ok, no more submitting this please.

Do not get on stage with Fat Mike of NoFX. You will be taken down. Apparently Mike's neck was hurting, which lead to the reaction. The fan has taken to Twitter to calm everyone down, saying "it didn't even hurt." Video in the replies.

18 year old Derry, Northern Ireland artist SOAK has signed to Rough Trade and will release her debut solo album next year. In the meantime you should check out her new single "B a noBody" and the b-side "Shuvels" in the replies, especially if you're a fan of Beach House, Lykke Li or Laura Marling. This is almost certainly an artist to look out for over the next 12 months.

We gave your first taste of The Traditional's debut album back in August. The song drew a lot of comparisons to The Wonder Years, but today's selection gives an entirely different - yet equally awesome - vibe. Head to the replies to stream "My Brother is the Sea." How to Live Without Blood drops on January 13th, with pre-orders launching today through Anchor Eighty Four.

After a stint playing Fest, Tiny Moving Parts have hit the road with Dads and Choir Vandals for a few weeks and stopped by Austin's Red 7 last night. The room was full for a Tuesday night, and all three bands could feel the good vibes. Things got rowdy, as they always do after a night at Red 7 (I'm telling you, things happen there man), but not before I could snap a few shots of the Triple Crown Records band straight outta Minnesota, eh. Check out a few photos and the gallery link below.
