Tycho's new album Awake is now streaming on SoundCloud. New tour dates have also been announced (they're in the replies). This has been my goto album the past few weeks when I need something to zone out with and focus on writing -- definitely worth checking out.

Bleachers recently did an acoustic session for a radio station in Philadelphia. You can check out the band perform their new single, "I Wanna Get Better", a cover of Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" and a new song called "Shadow" here.

We're excited to premiere a short (but awesome) song from Angel Du$t, fronted by Trapped Under Ice vocalist Justice Tripp. Consider "Stepping Stone" to be small taste of what you can expect from the band's upcoming debut full length record, A.D., set to be released this summer on both Reaper Records & React! Records.

Denton, Texas' Two Knights will be releasing its debut LP, Shut Up, on April 8th and it's fantastic. The Texas duo's chaotic brand of this indie-punk sound we all love right now is unleashed over the course of the album. Today, we're premiering a new song off the album titled "Dear God, This Parachute is a Knapsack." Check it out in the replies and then pre-order Shut Up immediately via Count Your Lucky Stars.

Check out the first song from Chris Farren (Fake Problems) and Jeff Rosenstock's (Bomb! The Music Industry) new project, Antarctigo Vespucci, over yonder at NOISEY, where there's also an interview with them. They recorded a seven-song...thing together, it's not really an EP or an LP when it has seven songs right? It's like an IP, because "I" is a letter between "E" and "L" in the alphabet! It's called Soulmate Stuff and it comes out on vinyl in June (preorder) and digitally on April 8.
Basically the short story is I bought a plane ticket to NYC after making some money on selling "Smith Family" shirts, stayed with Jeff for a week and recorded all of this in his apartment with him. I ran...

It's 2014 and I'm writing "Fairweather album stream." And that's not a bad thing, that's a good thing. In fact, it's a GREAT thing. The Washington DC quintet haven't lost a step despite a 10 year lapse between releases. Powerful, charged with emotion, and utterly fantastic, Fairweather prove that age is just a number for a band. Listen to the band's new self-titled album in the replies. It is available for pre-order from Equal Vision.

The Idol Dead filled out our interview. Read what they had to say.
Memories of my first time on the internet looking for Blink 182 websites which you used to be when I was a teen! I had one friend in my hometown with the internet and the same taste as me and we found AbsolutePunk pretty early and milked it for every band it had on it. We got into pop rock by finding New Found Glory’s From the Screen to Your Stereo mentioned on there. Nothing like that was played on the radio or on TV in the UK so we thought we were cooler than cool listening to Blink, The Ataris, Fall Out Boy and Brand New.

Last.fm announced today that is canceling their subscription radio streaming service.
Piggybacking on Spotify and other services like it could get Last.fm tracks in front of more users and make a bigger impact that the radio streaming service did overall. The company says that this change won't affect the Spotify partnership, and users will still be able to listen to stations on the company's new player.

Google Play Music now allows you to upload your music through their web interface.
Google Play Music has long been a solid option for uploading and accessing your music collection wherever you are, but using the Music Manager app to actually get your songs into the cloud wasn't always the smoothest or most intuitive process. However, a new feature tucked away in the experimental "labs" section of Play Music should make this process a lot easier — users can now upload whatever music they want straight through the browser using simple drag-and-drop. If the songs are matched with Google's vast music library, they'll be added automatically; otherwise they're simply uploaded.

Emery will launch a crowdfunding campaign for their new album, You Were Never Alone, next week. If you sign up for their mailing list, you'll get a free download of a new song.
It's been almost 11 years since we released 'The Weak's End.' That's a little hard to believe for us! In that time, we have seen more success than we could have possibly dreamed. We toured the world, created five more albums, and had the privilege of meeting and getting to know a ton of you along the way. You have never left us. As we came up with what we wanted to say here, it almost brought us to tears. We really were never alone. You are Emery. And you are the reason that we are still here, and why our...

Read our write up of the 3/23 Austin stop of La Dispute's "Rooms of the House" Tour with Pianos Become The Teeth and Mansions.
For the first time, I’m actually having a fairly hard time describing exactly what made this night and show so intense for me – aside form just the nature and content of the music, that is. Maybe it was the weather. Maybe it was that my hoodie wasn’t quite warm enough. Maybe it’s because I was at the show alone, which is rare. Whatever the reason, everything added up and the intensity and show just clicked. No matter what band you’re a fan of or what album or song catches your ear most, definitely go see this show if it comes near you.

Wu-Tang Clan have a characteristically bonkers way of releasing their other new album this summer, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. Via AV Club.
...The sole copy of Once Upon A Time In Shaolin will be encased inside an engraved silver-and-nickel box designed by British-Moroccan artist Yahya, then taken on a tour through museums, art galleries, and festivals. There—and only there—visitors will be able to listen to all 128 minutes of its 31 songs on headphones, and only after enduring a rigorous security check to eliminate the risk of any recording devices.
