Today, we're kicking off probably my favorite AbsolutePunk feature - the Absolute 100. Per usual, we'll be revealing 25 of our choices per week over the course of the next four weeks. On this year's list, you'll notice a handful of bands that have been building up momentum over the last year as well as some fresh faces you may not have heard yet. Check out the first 25 acts and join in on the discussion about which band is your new favorite.
When I heard this song in demo form a few months ago, I knew immediately that I wanted to premiere it on AbsolutePunk. Fast forward a few months later and a recording session with producer Pierre De Reeder (Vampire Weekend, Death Cab For Cutie, Rilo Kiley) and we are now premiering "G O L D E N C H I L D," the newest single from Barely Blind and one of the best indie-pop songs I've heard all year. The musicianship on "G O L D E N C H I L D" is mesmerizing and brings to mind a band like Phoenix while the infectious melodies and harmonies will be trapped in your brain for the rest of the day. Check out the song in the replies and it'll be available for purchase on iTunes tomorrow,...
This is the last split I did with Tony Sly. Tony has 2 songs on this album. It was fun to make and I am proud I was able to share this experience with Tony. People are always asking me for this record but I can not sell this on my store site (joeycape.com). So I decided to sell a few I have on Ebay. In my mind this record needs to be available to Tony's fans. It will eventually. But for now... here ya go!
On September 17th, Pennsylvania's Placeholder will release its sophomore album, I Don't Need Forgiveness via Black Numbers. Influenced by the likes of Texas Is The Reason and Braid, I Don't Need Forgiveness is the type of album late 90s/early 00s emo fans should check out. Today, we have a small preview of the LP - the blistering "Caught The Crown." You can stream it in the replies. The LP is also available to pre-order.
Everyone loves a fun music video, right? Behind The Fallen have a strong scoop of ridiculousness in their video for "You''re Just A Friend," the first single from their upcoming EP, Pages Of The Past. Go watch the fun in the replies and pick up their new EP on September 10, produced by Erik Ron (I The Mighty, VersaEmerge, Panic! At The Disco) - for fans of Silverstein, Conditions, and A Day To Remember.
You can find a list of tonight's winners at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards in the replies. The big winners of the night included Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, while the biggest losers were those of us who watched the program and Billy Ray Cyrus.
The 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards show will take place tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tonight's show has a great line-up of performances from the likes of Kanye West, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and more. The list of presenters is also stocked full of A-listers and Fall Out Boy is nominated for "Best Rock Video" as well. The show begins at 9 PM EST and you can discuss, debate, and make fun of whatever happens during the show in here. I heard some popular '90s boy band might reunite tonight. I hope it's 98 Degrees.
