Pop punk is a universal language. One Week Gone may be from Sweden, but their catchy sound is firmly - and proudly - rooted in vintage Blink 182. Head to the replies to stream their new EP, Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, which they'll be self-releasing on June 9th.

Staff Reviews Dawes - All Your Favorite Bands (Craig Manning)
Craig Manning on 06/01/15 - 07:52 AM
Gainesville, FL's Dikembe have sparked an interest in listeners over the past couple years because of their willingness to evolve: Their sophomore full-length, Mediumship, traded the barbed-wire energy from their introductory releases, the Chicago Bowls EP and their debut LP Broad Shoulders, for a somewhat more reclined approach. While the band still delivered intimate lyricism, they did so through slower-tempo jams and generally more "mature" musicianship. The group's newest effort, a four-song EP titled Ledge, is being self-released by the band and showcases another step in their evolution. Ledge is Dikembe taking a focused and driven step forward, dedicated to evaluating and...

The AV Club has a fun article about great albums with unfortunately designed album covers. Thought maybe on this Friday afternoon it'd be fun open up the discussion to our little neck of the Internet. So let's hear it, what album do you love listening to but hate looking at?

Last week I traveled to one of my favorite Philly venues, the Skyline Stage at the Mann Center, to check out All Time Low's Future Hearts Tour. The outdoor venue was met with perfect weather and a great crowd. Check out our photos and a review in the replies!
The show had witty banter, a teletubbie, an engagement, cover songs, a birthday celebration, and a ton of fans on stage. You can't ask for a better night than that. Bravo, All Time Low. Bravo.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast covers such topics as: the Paramore and Copeland tour wrapping up, the Mad Men finale, how music die-hards should tackle getting getting into huge "classic" catalogs, and do pieces from reviewers about the classics help kickstart that process? Then we talk about how I found a whole bunch of my old reviews in the archive and debate what I should do with them. Is it ok to make edits? Is it ok to keep them on my hard-drive and let them just fade away? What about a director's commentary version? How does reflecting on and reading your past writing influence your current and future writing? Can we just pretend that my Your Favorite Weapon...

Lydia will be working with Colby Wedgeworth and Aaron Marsh on their next album, tentatively set for a fall release.
“Devil is way happy … Devil was very much a summer record. The next one will be, in my opinion, very much a fall record. We’re going to release it right around the fall, and I feel like … Devil is like ‘Yeah, let’s go to a pool party,” Keller explains while his band mates erupt into laughter at his word choice. “The new record is going to be like ‘Let’s go to a park and watch the leaves fall or some shit. It’s a little moodier. That’s my piece.”

You can check out our interview with Emery here. The band's brand new album, You Were Never Alone, is out now.
Now this one I don’t really know, because so far they’re the most positive comments we’ve ever gotten. There’s two reasons that could be - one, the stuff’s great and everyone loves it; two, we’re releasing it ourselves, maybe we’re not getting enough people that aren’t predisposed to liking it to hear the record yet. I’m looking forward to moving ahead and pushing the record in general after the release, maybe we can get some negative comments that way, which means we’re reaching new people.

Having already produced songs for Jersey Shore and The Real World, England's Stealing Signs are poised to conquer both sides of the Atlantic. The group's new single, "Hide and Seek," doesn't drop until June 29th, but you can stream it a month early in the replies. With eccentric riffs, grooving verses and a soaring chorus, the track could easily be mistaken for the next Biffy Clyro hit.
