Tim Hecker will release his new album Love Streams April 8th and said that it was inspired in part by “liturgical aesthetics after Yeezus” and the “transcendental voice in the age of auto-tune." Jake is probably going to die when he hears it. (h/t Pitchfork)

Hazing describe themselves as the "saddest boys in Kansas City," but they have a lot to be happy about. They recently signed to InVogue Records, and we can now announce that their debut album, Disconsolate, will drop on March 18th. Jump to the replies to see the band's new music video for "Tumbler." The catchy, emo-tinged pop-punk track evokes The Wonder Years, Transit and self-titled-era Blink-182.
Alex DiVincenzo on 01/27/16 - 07:01 AM
It looks like Blink-182 is working in the studio with producer John Feldmann.

Kanye has changed his upcoming album's title again. Originally So Help Me God, then SWISH, his seventh record is now titled WAVES. The album is being premiered February 11th and I will continue to refer to it as SWISH because that is the best album title ever.

Music journalist Mike Damante has released a new book called Punk rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology meets Anarchy via DiAngelo Publications. Damante has covered the punk rock and Houston music scene for over 10 years at the Daily Cougar and the Houston Chronicle, and he runs music/media blog MIKED.
Punk rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology meets Anarchy” is pure non-fiction; a journalist’s perspective on the study of undiscovered species and the universe with a punk-rock edge that can’t be found in any UFO book out there. Don’t let the title fool you, which has been a huge conversation starter on social media, “Punk rock and UFOs: Cryptozoology meets Anarchy” offers serious and progressive theories...

I don't know about you guys, but I'll never turn down a harder-edged emo song. So I'm particularly stoked on our exclusive today: Mimisuki's "The Hand That Strikes the Flower." It carries a similar vibe to Jimmy Eat World's more aggressive material, a la "Bleed American," the song, or Desaparecidos' less aggressive material - the band shares members with Two Knights, if that'll convince you. You can listen to "The Hand..." on the band's profile, and if so inclined, you can preorder their new album The Thrills of Living from Count Your Lucky Stars; it comes out February 19.

Last week, I chatted on the phone with one of my favorite musicians, Stephen Christian (of Anchor and Braille, formerly of Anberlin). Our conversation touched on a variety of topics, from his new album Songs for The Late Night Drive Home, to the last days of Anberlin, and messages taken away from studying the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was a fascinating discussion to be a part of, so I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed speaking with him." You can find the full interview here.
People have this false impression where we still live in the 80s and 90s where musicians were rich. I had a job working for Ultimate Ears as a social media coordinator the last two and a half...
