When we unveiled the AbsolutePunk.net Top 30 of 2013 on Tuesday, you might have noticed an album that didn't quite fit in with the others. Our collective 26th favorite of the year, Jon Hopkins' Immunity stood out amongst the indie and emo records that the site loves most dearly. So Jake Jenkins and I have taken a leap of faith, and compiled a brief list of our ten favorite "dance" records of the year, along with our favorite song. The word is loosely applied here, encompassing everything from club music to headphones records that leave you emotionally catatonic. With all the free time the holidays afford us, why not take a few moments and try something new - maybe you'll find the song...

I'd like to formally welcome you all to the end of 2013. We thought we'd celebrate by unleashing our AbsolutePunk.net Top 30 albums of the year. Compiled from all of the AP.net staff's EOTY lists (which can be found here), we've once again released one of the most complete and eclectic lists you'll see from any publication. From death metal to indie to defend pop punk to #emorevival, we have it all. So I'll shut up now and let our list do the rest of the talking - check it out in the replies. As always, your thoughts, opinions, and disagreements are welcomed. 2013 was a great year for the music world once again - here's to 2014.

Hey all, and thanks for taking the time to read the 1st installment in “Four Chords & Seven Years Ago.” Last week we talked about Down To Earth Approach and it was met with a ton of positive feedback of people listening/remembering them and reminiscing about DTEA stories. This week, we talk about Louisville, KY's Emanuel. Head to the replies to read the whole entry.

I've started a blog entitled "Four Chords & Seven Years Ago." While the name may seem cheesy, the intent is anything but that. What I hope to accomplish is to open your ears (and mine) to something that you may not have heard before in hopes that it will drive you to explore music. I'll be grabbing people within the industry to contribute weekly. Head to the replies to read the first installment, which is an introduction to the feature and I talk about Down To Earth Approach.
