Idlehands is going to be one of those bands you're going to want to know about right now. The San Diego rock act is starting to make a splash on the national scene and it'll be a damn shame if you catch the group on their upcoming tour with Being As An Ocean, A Lot Like Birds, and My Iron Lung and not know the band's material. Listen to the track "Mellow Christ" in the replies which comes from the split with Ghost Parade. The track features GP's vocalist Justin Bonifacio and the split is available for pre-order.

In case you haven't noticed, Tiny Engines has been killing it thus far in 2014. And you can add another hit to the list as Florida's Direct Effect will be unleashing its brand of abrasive punk rock in the form of its new album, Sunburn, this March 11th. We're offering up a taste of that LP today by premiering "Thoughts of Honey" and if you like loud, noisy punk in the vein of Pissed Jeans, then check this jam out in the replies. You can pre-order it on vinyl or buy it now digitally for $5 at Bandcamp.

Although Fake Figures features members of Atreyu, Hotwire, and Scars of Tomorrow, their sound leans more toward fast-paced punk rock with heavy influences. For their upcoming EP, They Must Be Destroyed, the band spent time in the studio with Saosin guitarist and producer Beau Burchell. Today, we are streaming "Normal Life" off of it - check it out in the replies.

It's safe to say that Maker has been through a lot. 2014 will be a telling year for the band, as the group is kicking it off by being part of a 4 way split with Such Gold, Ivy League, and Turnover. Head to the replies to listen to "Here She Comes" and leave your thoughts as well. It is available for pre-order.

It's always great to discover a new band through one of these features. Today when Paul from Quiet Country Audio sent me over Real People, I didn't know what to expect. This band is a well kept secret because if you're a fan of Native, My Heart To Joy, or Algernon Cadwallader than this is for you. Head to the replies to check out their videos and you can grab the audio on Bandcamp.

We have another exclusive stream from Save Your Generation Records, so you know it's gonna be a good one. Start your afternoon off with some new tunes from Green Lights and Congress. The split puts a frenetic and urgent spin on that garage rock sound. Check it out in the replies and you can pre-order it digitally or physically.

It's really funny to look back through your inbox and see the progression and growth of an artist. September 2012 was the first time I received an email about Front Porch Step, when he was just a local act. I didn't think much of it then but to see how much he's grown is truly amazing. Now, he's signed to Pure Noise and gaining tons of momentum with his debut record out on iTunes and physical copies hitting stores on Feb. 11th. Today we're premiering the video for "Drown." You can view it in the replies.

Today we're bringing you the second new song from The Weaks' upcoming debut EP, The World Is A Terrible Place and I Hate Myself and Want To Die, which is out on February 11 via our friends at Lame-O Records. The track is called "How To Put An Audience To Sleep In Under Two Minutes" but the joke's on these guys because the song is 10 seconds longer than 2 minutes, and it only took me 30 seconds to fall asleep. But really, it's the most punk-ish track from this release and we think fans of Joyce Manor, Weezer, The Sidekicks, The Ergs and stuff like that will like it. Check out the song in the replies and pre-order the release over yonder.

Throw Texas Is The Reason's Garrett Klahn, Samiam's Sergie Loobkoff, Thrice's Eddie Breckenridge, RX Bandits' Steve Choi, and Peace'd Out's Roger Camero in a room and watch the awesome happen. Forming together as Felled Trees, the guys performed their live rendition of the Dinosaur Jr. classic "Get Me" - we've got it in the replies. In honor of the video, the band has marked their debut 12" down to $10, which you can pick up from the Siren Records webstore.

Pop-punk has been such a hard genre to define over the past few years. It's taken on many sounds, shapes, and forms but one thing is undeniable - when a band does the genre justice, nothing else matters but the music. Today we're extremely excited to premiere the song "Progression Regression" from New England's Traditions. My initial take was the music of Real Friends meets the vocals of Valencia. The track comes from the band's upcoming EP Cycles out on March 11th. Listen to the track in the replies and it is available for pre-order.
