I kind of thought the crowd-funding thing was interesting but I had a whole mess of fear based somewhat ethical concerns. Most of which I addressed pretty explicitly in the essay that accompanies the Kickstarter campaign but I ultimately decided to do it because I wanted to do something different and see if either A, I was super misguided in thinking I had the kind of connection with the audience that I thought I had or B, I was correct in assuming that they're not concerned where the records come out label-wise as...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I found the wonderful Microwave. Microwave are a melodic post-hardcore band from Georgia who have just released their third EP, When The Fever Breaks, as 'name your price' through their Bandcamp. If you like Taking Back Sunday or the idea of Jimmy Eat World with a bit more edge, Microwave are the band for you. 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.

Kyle Huntington I was fortunate enough to get Gambles' debut album this week and if you're a fan of Bob Dylan, Bon Iver or Leonard Cohen, you want to give his stuff a whirl. Head to this thread to check him out. Also a whole load of GTA V and waiting for the new Wavves track "Nine Is God" to come on the radio whilst playing.
