I'm delighted that we're exclusively streaming the debut EP from Illinois pop-punkers, Game Changer. Three Years is an exhilarating, fun, youthful EP that brings to mind the likes of The Story So Far, Handguns and early All Time Low. The EP is officially available to buy from the band's Bandcamp tomorrow, but until then, head to replies to hear it. Thank me later.

Read my review of Blink-182's recent show in Uncasville, CT with Taking Back Sunday, Four Year Strong and New Beat Fund. All of my photos can be found here.
It's a shame, for fans' sake, that this isn't a longer tour, as the strong line-up fits well together, but I'm happy to have been able to see it. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait another two years before Blink 182 tours the country again, because they remain one of the most fun live shows.

Apparently the CD version of All Time Low's Don't Panic: It's Longer Now are limited to "only" 15,000 units. It may seem like a lot, but consider the fact that this band has multiple top-10 debuts in the sales charts. They've sold well over 1 million albums and 4 million singles worldwide. Hit the replies to discuss if you think this a sign of a future marketing strategy. Will bigger labels start limiting CD quantities to raise the incentive to buy them? Is this the "vinylification" of the CD?

Varying heavily from the format of recent talks, my newest "Behind the Bits" with stand-up legend Andy Kindler focuses much, much less on his career and places the spotlight on current comedy events and the state of the industry as a whole. While I'm biased, I consider this one a must-listen, even for non-comedy followers.There's not much else I can say without pointing you to the stream, so head over and give it a listen. It's lengthy, but it's the most enlightening conversation I've had with anyone in a very, very long time. Be sure to check back next week, when my guest is stand-up comic and the voice of Bob's Burgers' Gene Belcher, Eugene Mirman.
