Please welcome Cody Nelson, whom is our newest addition to the AbsolutePunk.net staff. He'll be focusing on bringing comedy content to the site, such as reviews, interviews, and weekly round-up. It's an area I've wanted to cover on the site for a while, especially with all the interest in stand-up and the like in our Entertainment forum.
Drew Beringer on 03/20/13 - 02:20 PM
Craig and I are taking a week off from the "My Back Pages" feature. Be sure to join us next Tuesday as we discuss a record with some of the most brilliant guitar work in the history of rock 'n roll. Stay tuned!

Hit the replies for recaps of SXSW Day 4: Saturday from Paul Tao, Lueda Alia and I. Be sure to check out the Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 recaps as well. I was lucky enough to see Fall Out Boy, and Paul got to see Vampire Weekend.

This week on the Self Promotion Spotlight, one can find Day Dreamer an emo tinged pop punk band from Illinois and Wisconsin. They've just released their Best Wishes EP which is 'name your price' on their Bandcamp. They have a similar vibe to a looser version of Title Fight and are definitely worth a spin.

Welcome to My Back Pages, a new collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike, most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

This week, we are taking a look at Fleetwood Mac's legendary, radio-approved 1977 LP, Rumours,...

Kelly Doherty on 03/12/13 - 05:12 AM
You can read our interview with Unifier here. The band have just released their debut full length album, Colorado and we discussed to process behind the album and their recent name change.
They are definitely from a personal point of view for me. I try to be poetic and use fairly general themes, without being vague so that the listener can make their own interpretation and decide what the lyrics mean to them to a certain extent. A lot of the general ideas and themes on the album came from a time of reflection I had when I was in Colorado quite a few years ago, which is why we decided to name the album that. I'd say some of the main topics I come back to are: people being deceitful or...

For today's "countdown" feature, I thought that we could maybe get a good discussion going about our favorite hidden gems in music. I posted a list of some of my favorites a while back in my blog, but I never shared them here. Here are 5 things I find cool about music. What are some of yours?
The Countdown1) The last line from The Format's Interventions & Lullabies is "we all fall down" and the first line to Dog Problems is "ashes to ashes."

2) Brand New’s "Limousine" is about … this. I doubt it’s possible to watch that video and not cry. Also, that there’s a Track 0 on TDAGARIM.

3) In The Gaslight Anthem's "Meet Me By The River’s Edge" the lyric, "No surrender, my Bobby Jean" are...

The music industry's most loved/most hated (depending on who you ask) week of the year, SXSW, is here once again! We'll have three staffers down there this year (Eda, Ryan and I) seeing as many bands, parties and free taco-filled events as possible. Daily updates from the three of us each morning will be posted on the home page, and we will also be updating the AP.net live show twitter (@apnetatshow). You can also follow each of us individually on twitter to see what bands and parties we're at at any given moment (@paultao, @alueda, @ryangardnerc). If you're down in Austin for the madness, feel free to say hi to any of us that you run into on the streets! Most of us get in tomorrow...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, one can find the excellent Open To Fire. The five piece, hailing from Birmingham, UK, play punk tinged indie rock which should be popular among fans of The Gaslight Anthem. Their recent self titled EP is basically five tracks of catchy, all moods suited rock and what's more, it's free on their Bandcamp. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight?

A few weeks ago the AP.net staff posted our "most anticipated of 2013" list. Then we asked you, the reader, to vote for your most anticipated of 2013 albums. We've finally tallied up all of the votes: and the results are in. The number one band may surprise you, as The Color Morale ended up snagging the top spot. The band's upcoming album, Know Hope, hits stores on March 26th. To find out the other 59 albums you're anticipating, check the replies.

It's been a few weeks but we're back with another countdown list. Since it's the first Monday of March, I thought I would list my five most anticipated records that are releasing this month. As we inch closer to spring and warmer weather (well, warmer weather for those who don't live in Los Angeles), I can see a lot of people looking forward to more upbeat jams - something you can blast with the windows down. So avoid the winter blues by checking out this list to dream about warmer days ahead. Join in the discussion in the replies with the albums you're most anticipating in the month of March.
