I recently wrote an article about the joy of emo music, my passion for The Get Up Kids' Something To Write Home About and a few sentimental things about believing in your dreams and whatnot. Have a read of it here.
That's only present in you because you're 14 years old. For some people, 14 is the age that they retreat in to their basements for the rest of their lives to make an existence out of Mountain Dew and 4Chan. For others, 14 means finding new bands and discovering the beautiful world of the genres that Billboard doesn't cover. For me, 14 meant discovering The Get Up Kids. Something To Write Home About, to be precise.

We're introducing yet another new editorial feature on the site today and it's one we're all really excited about. Presenting the AP.net Roundtable - an article revolving around a much-anticipated album and the discussion it inspires amongst a handful of staff members. The first roundtable article features Ryan Dennehy, Jake Jenkins, Jason Tate, Craig Manning, Kelly Doherty, Kyle Huntington, and myself discussing The National's latest release, Trouble Will Find Me. Throughout the discussion we touched on favorite songs, themes, and lyrics while also trying to predict what the future holds for the band. It's a very interesting read and something we're going to try to do one or two...

It seems like the mid-year articles and lists arrive faster and faster each year. The first six months of 2013 brought listeners enough great albums to fill up an end of the year list, so it's somewhat overwhelming yet incredibly exciting that we have six more months of fantastic releases to look forward to. As for now, we'll put a bow on the first 181 days of the year by releasing our ten favorites thus far as well as individual lists from our staff. And to go along with this, we've released episode five of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. Jason and I talk about our favorite albums so far and look forward to what the rest of the year has in store. You can check out the podcast here and...
