PureVolume recently interviewed Chino Moreno and Aaron Harris of Palms about the band's new self-titled album.
The music's pretty visual. From the first time I heard it, even though it was a lot to take in, I immediately got this cinematic feeling. The music is panoramic to me. I'm looking at it, listening to it, and seeing all kinds of different images. Even with the name Palms, we didn't come up with it too late into the process. Everything gave it this feeling. I felt like it was very cinematic. A lot of the lyrics are painting pictures of landscapes. There's not too much storytelling in the lyrics. It's more or less the music is speaking to me and, I think, you guys as well in a very...

Lil B recently dictated an Op-Ed about the abortion debate in Texas to Rolling Stone.
Wendy Davis matters. She's a woman fighting for what's right. A lot of people aren't agreeing with her; she's doing something that's out of the norm. A lot of people who do agree are scared to speak, or they're not in a position to be heard. So I definitely respect Ms. Davis for planting new seeds for women's rights. I'm trying to do that on my level, too. I think women are going to keep excelling. We're going to have a woman president. We need more women in the workforce, way more women involved in running everything. That's our problem.

We have a last minute special exclusive today - a new song from Long Lost's upcoming No Sleep debut, Save Yourself, Start Again. What started as an acoustic side project between Transit vocalist Joe Boynton and guitarist Vinny Comeau has turned into a full-band adventure. The song is titled "This Love Will Grow" and it's an upbeat indie gem that's perfect for the summer. You can stream the song in the replies or over at the band's AP.net profile. Also, don't forget to pre-order the upcoming LP here - it hits stores on August 6th.

Ten years ago today I (along with many of you I'm sure) discovered an album that would eventually become one of my all-time favorite records. That remarkable record is none other than Every Time I Die's second full-length, Hot Damn!. It's still putting the "act" in action. We'll be releasing a special podcast with Keith on Wednesday. In the meantime, rock out to some "Ebolarama" today.

Like many of us, The SpacePimps were raised on early-2000s pop punk. The Pittsburgh trio brings to mind the likes of New Found Glory, The Starting Line, Yellowcard and Fall Out Boy. Their latest album, Eternal Boy, comes out tomorrow, but you can stream it now by heading to the replies or their AP.net profile. Ignore the silly band name and give it a listen for some perfect summertime music.

It seems like the mid-year articles and lists arrive faster and faster each year. The first six months of 2013 brought listeners enough great albums to fill up an end of the year list, so it's somewhat overwhelming yet incredibly exciting that we have six more months of fantastic releases to look forward to. As for now, we'll put a bow on the first 181 days of the year by releasing our ten favorites thus far as well as individual lists from our staff. And to go along with this, we've released episode five of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. Jason and I talk about our favorite albums so far and look forward to what the rest of the year has in store.

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered the lovely Townhouses, an emo/post-hardcore four piece from Southampton, PA. Townhouses have a fresh, modern emo feel but with the occasional dalliance with 90s indie rock and post-rock. If Moving Mountains were an emo band, Townhouses would certainly be on the same footing as them. Their recent EP, Keepsakes is available on their Bandcamp as 'name your price', so there's no excuse to not check them out! Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.
