Happy Friday everyone! I had planned to spend the day catching up on podcasts and relaxing for the long Fourth of July weekend. So, first things first: I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend. Definitely take advantage of that Apple Music trial to try out some new music while watching fireworks (I wrote up a few things I’ve been listening to lately on my blog). Usually this is the part of the week where I’d link to something funny, random, or interesting that I found over the past week. However, after seeing my Twitter at-replies this morning I’m just not in the mood for that right now. Instead, since I need more than 140 characters and I’m getting a bunch of questions about my...

Earlier this week I had the chance to take part in a conference call with Miguel to discuss his recently-released album Wildheart, which also happens to be one of the year's best. The full exchange can be found here.
Nothing that matters in this world has ever been accomplished by being faint of heart, or by being fearful, or being conformist. It always took a little bit of delusion, a little bit of crazy, a little bit of wild-heartedness to go against the grain. Because the truth is, being yourself is wild-hearted, because no one will ever be like you. You are the only you that will ever be and has ever been. And I think that’s to be celebrated, as opposed to being muted, or being...

Brian Marquis has taken to Twitter to clarify that he had nothing to do with Front Porch Step playing the acoustic stage in Nashville.
I want to clarify I had no hand in the events in Nashville nor was I part of the planning. I also did not introduce anyone onstage.

The Foo Fighters turn 20 tomorrow. Stereogum has a nice write-up on the anniversary.
But the first Foo Fighters album turns 20 tomorrow, which means at this point there has to be many others who first became aware of Grohl because they heard “Everlong” on the radio or in the mall or anywhere, or they saw any video in the long lineage of Foo singles on Fuse or whatever.

The AP.net staff is here to bring you a different playlist every Friday to soundtrack your summer. Last week, we took your suggestions and crafted a Feel Good Hits of the Summer Playlist. This week, things are getting a little bit darker. We're taking you to one of the staples of summer: the late night drive. This is one to throw on while your aimlessly cruising through the backstreets at 3 AM. So roll those windows down, and check out the playlist in the replies.

The UK rock band, Blitz Kids have called it quits. They have also cancelled their upcoming UK tour and will be scheduling a farewell tour.
I don’t want to talk in clichés or metaphor, so I’m just going to come straight out with it. It is with heavy hearts but heads held high that we must announce it is time for us to take our leave.
We have always said that we are friends, first and foremost, before a band. And it is as friends that we have reached this decision to end this incredible adventure that we started 8 years ago. Between then and now, this band has taken us to beautiful places that we’d never have experienced without it, and introduced us to people who we consider family and...

What happens when the power goes out in the middle of recording a podcast? Welp, you lose the first few minutes of your talk about The Wonder Years apparently. We were able to salvage the conversation using my back-up recording; however, Thomas's vocals are a little different for the first five to ten minutes of this one -- sorry about that -- we get that fixed relatively quickly and then we're on to a jam-packed episode. We start with talking about The Wonder Year's new song, video, album, and everything associated with that. Then we move into a talk all about the newly released Apple Music. What are our thoughts? Are we going to stick with it? What do we like, dislike, hate, and love?...

Once in a while, I come across a new band I can't get enough of. Narrow / Arrow falls in that category. The first time I heard "Savior Talk" from their upcoming EP Middle Children, I couldn't wait to hit repeat - the melodies and Cody Nicolas' incredibly emotive vocal bursts at the end of the song make the listener yearn for more. I'm happy to be sharing this song on AP.net today (below), so take a listen and let us know what you think. While the band shares common elements with the likes of American Football and TTNG, Narrow / Arrow are set to leave their own mark in the scene and I can't wait to see what they have up their sleeve in the coming years.

Middle Children is out on Other...

Looks like the owner of The Rave in Milwaukee told Senses Fail on Twitter they couldn't play the venue. Before the account was made private it said the band wouldn't be allowed back at the venue because they disrespected Kevin Lyman.

Part three of Kayla St. Onge and Jonathan Diener (The Swellers)'s weekly column, "Pop Punk and Feminism," is up on The Runout. This article looks at the issue of victim blaming, a topic that is particularly important after certain recent comments.
Even the police are in on the conspiracy—common questions rape victims will be asked if they report are “What were you wearing?”; “What were you drinking?”; “Did you smile at him?” From the start, the victims are on trial, and after being faced with such oblique distaste and disinterest, most of them choose not to press charges. The process of trying to bring your abuser to justice is long, exhausting, and usually unsatisfying. That’s why...
