There's only one release date left in June, which means it's about that time to talk about the best music from the past three months. April, May, and June have been chock-full of great albums; what releases have come out that are already on your end of the year lists? What album has flown under the radar so far in 2015 that you want others to check out? Are you brave enough to predict your album of the year already? Let us know in the replies! Be sure to include a favorite track or two. If you're still playing catch up, check out our first quarter discussion and playlist here.

Our very own Anthony Sorendino wrote an interesting blog playing futurist for what something like Apple Music could become. I've had a long fascination with looking at how music could intertwine with technology and the ideas presented here are really interesting. Now we just need Siri to become self-aware and cast judging snarky comments at me because I'm actually enjoying this new Hilary Duff album.

We talked with Cold War Kids about their latest album, Hold My Home. Check it out here.
Around the time of our first record, everyone was saying we were a blog band because that was the time when those dozen bands were coming up through that medium. I think we’re probably one of the only ones of those bands that’s still around, or at least active in any more visible level. Again, I think we’re pretty surprised by it, because we didn’t totally plan on it. For me, it’s about desire. If we still really want to do it full on and write, record and tour, then we have to be totally committed. I don’t think we could take a year off. We’re not that kind of band where we could just take a...

Head over to Noisey to check out Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional's take on some of the "emo revival" bands.
This song made my hair stand straight up (I am aware that it grows that way anyhow). "The Scope of All of This Rebuilding" is a harmony and eventually gang vocal masterpiece of power, which in moments drops down to just one singer and becomes compelling in a new way. I had a visceral reaction to this song. It's undeniable. I remember when I heard Saves the Day’s Can’t Slow Down, and I was like, well, I'm going to start this over and I'm going to listen again and again. It's that feeling. The structure of this one is inside out. I like that a lot. Like, when there's all...

Learn how to shut your ego out and make sure you’re not doing something out of sheer stubbornness and laziness. We made this record THREE times. That’s three almost entirely different records. Each time we thought it was done, and then we’d all come back to it and realize it wasn’t. It’s the hardest thing to start over again, but it will always be better a second time around.

Brandon Roundtree, formerly of Conditions, explains on Facebook why he called it quits.
I stopped playing music because I hated how dependent it made me on other people. My faith in what I was doing felt like a trapeze artist flailing from bar to bar, barely keeping in motion. I would sporadically meet amazing, naturally supportive people amongst the oceans of consumers and they would keep me going momentarily...only to inevitably be let down again at such an exponentially gargantuan rate that I would feel my personality change. I stopped playing music because I am a happy, extremely positive, and supportive person. I am back...and I buy music.
