An interview with Mark Trombino sheds more light into the producer's donut shop.
Well, I donít pound donuts daily Ė I guess thatís how [how I stay fit] for the most part. Everybody loves donuts, but itís not like Iím obsessed with donuts. I just had a really cool idea for a donut shop. I was kicking around the idea for almost four years before I actually started doing something with it. I just felt like I had to do it. It was so good and I didnít want to see anybody else do it. I just wanted to see this idea come to light

Andrew McMahon has posted a blog update on the release of his new album.
It is not lost on me that tonight is exceptional. Exceptional for many reasons. Exceptional because I am at peace. Exceptional because on evenings such as this, in other lives, I was a mess. I have spent many nights in terminals like this one; waiting on a trains or planes, dreaming of final destinations. Tonight is different though. A broad leather chair with wooden arms, one of many in LAís union station, holds me close as I type these words. I am eager for the tracks and my wife on the other side, but I am glad to be here for now, if only for a moment.

Streetlight Manifesto have posted an update announcing Toh Kay's solo album has been "canceled" and pre-orders for their latest album are "delayed."
Itís with a very heavy heart that I have to announce the following:
1) The Toh Kay album ďThe Hand That ThievesĒ has been canceled for the foreseeable future. More details will come to light in the coming days.
2) Due to Victory Records refusal to send us copies of our own new album, there will be another delay in our ability to deliver preorders on time. We hoped to find a compromise with them, up until the bitter end; unfortunately, it just wasnít possible.

By now it should be no surprised to you that we're huge fans of Dikembe around these parts. I first fell in love with the band when I heard its four-song debut, Chicago Bowls, a few years ago; its energized take on anthemic indie/emo/punk with heart-on-sleeve lyricism brought in many fans. So I'm beyond stoked to be premiering the remastered version of the band's fantastic EP - you can stream it in the replies or at the band's AP.net profile. After you hear how much better Chicago Bowls sounds, make sure to pre-order the 7" from Tiny Engines here.

You can read Under The Gun's recent interview with Daniel Taylor of Surrogate here.
The downside of it though, is that it sort of marginalizes what you do, because thereís not the credibility of being on a label, or the push that a label gives you to help you breakthrough to press and blogs. So you kind of get lumped in with the unwashed masses of bedroom bands and high school garage bands, which is fine: thereís a lot of amazing music being made these days in bedrooms and by teenagers in garages. But in terms of trying to gain any sort of broad exposure for your band, especially when your band is just a bunch of late-20s/early-30s beardos, not having a label to hang your hat on makes it...
