Castle of Genre released their new album, Home: Loss & Ghosts, this week. To celebrate, we are streaming the whole thing, which you can check out in the replies. Lyrically, the album's concept is that no matter how bad the memories that are rooted in where and what your "home" is, it's always going to be your home regardless and that will never change. Musically, the album lays in the more noodly emo genre, appealing to both fans of The World Is A Beautiful Place and even Manchester Orchestra at times ("Champion of Death"). The band cites influences of The Killers, and at times, the vocal accent is definitely similar. You can grab the album for $5.

You can check out our interview with Marianas Trench here. The band's new album, Astoria, will be released later this year.
I think the difference with this record is that the lyrics are very candid. We had a lot of stuff going on with the band over the last year and a half, which is the reason why it took us so long to get this new record out. There's been a lot of personal stuff happening. Nothing with the four guys or anything, but just personal stuff. I won't get into any gritty details, but when you guys hear this new record, it's an open book. It's reading right from the diary.

Head over to DIY Mag to read the story on how Brand New's Deja Entendu artwork was created.
“I don’t remember them really giving us any art direction at all throughout the whole process,” recalls Don. “I remember them liking what we submitted, and being a pleasure to work with during the entire process. It was a really fun project.” For such a seemingly easy process, the team never thought the artwork would have such an effect on fans. “It was pretty amazing to see the response to the artwork,” says Don. “If I could go back, there are a zillion little things I would do differently. I was much younger (and greener) at the time, so some of the light and shadow work is a bit clunky - but I...

Mark Kozelek is becoming better known for being awful than for his music. John Mulvey writes for Uncut on how the musician targeted a journalist at his show the other night.
Two hours into the show, however, as Kozelek lurches back onstage for the encore, the theme takes a substantially nastier turn. First he names a British journalist who has, for reasons that are not entirely clear, annoyed him (full disclosure: that journalist is a friend and fellow Uncut writer. I would hope that my disgust at what Kozelek says is not materially affected by this, though he will doubtless beg to differ). Then he begins a spontaneous song about the writer – a woman – about how she “totally wants to...
