Long time AP.net user, ghsNICK!, has launched a Kickstarter for a "minimalist wallet" -- we're big on community, so we felt like helping out and dropping a link to his page for him. Plus, he sent us one to check out, which I am pretty sure was just a bribe so I'd remove some old infraction points. Anyway, I spent the day playing with it and all in all I think it's a pretty interesting concept. I like the idea of a small and minimal wallet for the few things I do carry with me on a daily basis (can we move these all to my phone yet?). Given that I only really need my ID, a few credit cards, and maybe an insurance card ... it really does lighten the load of what I carry around in my...

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.
