It looks like Relient K may be writing and recording a new album. Their long-time producer, Mark Lee Townsend, tweeted that his "workspace for the next month" is a "100+ year old cottage" with the hashtag #rkjamsessions.

Deryck from Sum 41 has been writing with 5 Seconds of Summer. Say what you will about this band, it's got to be pretty cool for them to be writing with all their pop-punk heroes.

Prepare yourself for tomorrow's Valentine's Day festivities by watching Seasons Change's new music video for "Valentine" in the replies. The track comes from their full-length debut, Please Don't Leave, which drops April 7th via No Sleep Records. The band fits in just fine with the new breed of pop punk, so fans of Knuckle Puck, Forever Came Calling, Major League, State Champs and the like will want to take note.

On The Gunz Show, Ben from You Me and Everyone We Know opened up about his depression, how he turned it into a positive with his new EP, and much more. You can listen here.
"I eventually after freaking out.. starting to get suicidal about things.. I started to see a therapist and started seeing about medication and stuff and just being like I need to figure this out – whatever’s going on with me… I can’t keep suffering… I need to sort out the things that are missing me out… I eventually found out I suffer from PTSD from childhood things that happened… but I’ve realized that it’s okay that you’re damaged and It’s been a lesson in learning and that’s sort of what this whole EP is about…”

Thomas has Dryjacket and Microwave as bands you need to watch in 2015, and while I agree, my band is Divers. They are now streaming their kick-ass debut album, Hello, Hello which is in the replies. They combine just about everything that is loved on this site into one fantastic album. If you haven't checked out any of their songs that have been available yet, just take not even hour of your day and give this a listen, you won't regret it.

Marah Eakin, writing over at AV Club, looks at how pop-music is the "whitest" it's been in over 35 years.
Something happened with both the Hot 100 chart and Grammy nominations in the mid ’00s, however, and black artists started declining again. That’s only gotten worse over time, and in 2013 there wasn’t a single black artist with a No. 1 single on the Hot 100. A black artist hasn’t won a Grammy in any of the four major categories—Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist—since 2010.

Maybe I'm biased, but this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast is one of my favorites we've recorded. We start out looking at why Brand New has been able to maintain an almost unprecedented amount of "hype" for their band given their relative silence compared to other artists. We move from there into a look at the announcements from Fun. and Nate Ruess over the past week and how they compare and contrast what went down with Blink-182. We talk a little bit about the Grammys and how they are failing to live up to their stated mission and what they could possibly do to fix it. And then we finish out this week's episode diving into conflicts of interest and the ethics of having a...

Florence + The Machine will release the new album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful on June 1st. The record is produced by Markus Dravs with contributions from Paul Epworth, Kid Harpoon and John Hill. Head to the replies to watch the (NSFW) video for brand new single, "What Kind Of Man".
I guess although I’ve always dealt in fantasy and metaphor when I came to writing, that meant the songs this time were dealing much more in reality. Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it. Which is frightening because...

Our servers are having an issue syncing at the moment so there's probably some weird bugs going on with what threads are being marked as read, where comments and new threads are showing up, and things like that. We're trying to get it fixed as soon as possible. Sorry about this.

Update: I think we got everything fixed. Please leave a comment or hit me up on Twitter if you're still seeing issues.

Oregon's Lee Corey Oswald shot their new music video for "Scatterbrain" entirely on their cell phones. It's an appropriately lo-fi medium for their style, which is in the same vein as Weezer, Knapsack and '90s indie rock. You can check it out in the replies. Regards is out now on No Sleep Records.

Ours By Accident's EP Act Action Bonus Tracktion is available for free download on Noisetrade. Originally released in November, the EP includes covers of Dustin Kensrue, Mae, House of Heroes, and The Reign of Kindo that were picked to lyrically complement the band's full-length album, which is on Bandcamp.

We're really excited to premiere a brand new song from The Beautiful Ones, off their brand new album Jaded Love. The band was on tour supporting Cruel Hand, in which their unique brand of hardcore was well received by those in the crowd. Think of a darker, more aggressive version of Superheaven. The album drops April 21st via 6131 Records, pre-orders will be available soon. Head to the replies to stream "Exhale (Room 312)".

Rembert Browne wrote a really great piece on Kendrick Lamar's "The Blacker the Berry" for Grantland:
Kendrick is attempting a lot in one song. It’s an internal monologue, made public, in which he’s working out his own issues, acknowledging his own demons. Is it conservative? Is he coming down hard on black people? Is he coming down surprisingly hard on white people? Does he fully understand race and power and inequality as much as one perhaps should before jumping in this sea of generalizations? There are days and weeks and months and infinities left to parse out these ideas. But what is true from even the first listen is that Kendrick is talking directly to black people.

The weekly UK album charts are going to finally start using streaming data.
Industry sources, however, told the Guardian that there is a sense of anxiety within the UK record industry that it should not follow the US model, which is believed to be flawed. The fear is that replicating the US model could mean one massive single has the potential to skew the chart performance of the parent album, driving it up the charts even if the rest of the album is clogged with tumbleweed.
