"Have any thoughts on that Drew?"

"Nope."

That might be my favorite running gag in the AbsolutePunk Podcast, but it unfortunately rings a little too true this week. Due to some technical issues, Drew wasn't able to join us for our recording, so you'll have to deal with just Thomas and me. This week we look at a variety of topics: Follow-up from last week and looking at a few questions and comments we saw. Things like do we love music based on merit or past love for an artist? Does all music from our formative years hold up or does it get more of a critical "pass" as we get older? Then we talk a little about Thomas' prediction in last week's episode that Tim had left Transit -- only...

Ace Enders has posted a new song clip and video teaser -- it's in the replies.
a few months back i was mixing a record for another band. while each track was bouncing down (roughly 3-4 minuets each) i wrote 8 songs in that time, playing and singing the first thing that came into my mind. i recorded each as a voice memo in that moment and then built the song around that. so no metronome and very little edits. just a cracky voice memo that you can hear all over the album. thankfully trevor from el.de.te was there the whole time to document it.. here is a small piece of it!!

Hey, did you know barely anyone is buying albums? Well, the record industry hit a new low last week. Billboard is reporting that for the first time since album sales were counted, they've dropped below 4 million.
This week's 3.97-million album sales tally is the smallest weekly sum for album sales since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991. It's also the first time weekly sales have fallen below four million in that time span.

Fox is making a sitcom about Weezer's Rivers Cuomo's life.
Psych creator Steve Franks has teamed with rock musician Rivers Cuomo for DeTour, a single-camera comedy inspired by the Weezer frontman’s real-life experiences. The project, from 20th Century Fox TV, has landed at Fox with a put pilot commitment. DeTour centers on a thirtysomething rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success.

Just like last year, we'll be hosting an unofficial Riot Fest afterparty during all the festivities on September 12-14 in Chicago. Glamour Kills is presenting three straight nights of DJ sets at Five Star Bar, and Saturday is the AP.net / PropertyOfZack party. Zack Zarrillo and I will be playing pop-punk and emo songs just like we did last year, and it was great to meet a BUNCH of community members, so we invite everyone to come out and say hi. Friday night will be hosted by Bob Nanna (Braid) and Mark Rose (Spitalfield), while Sunday night will be anchored by booking agent wunderkind Ryan Soroka. There's a flier in the replies!

Mark Joseph Stern, writing for Slate, looks at the psychology and neuroscience for why nostalgia plays such a large role in our musical preferences.
To understand why we grow attached to certain songs, it helps to start with the brain’s relationship with music in general. When we first hear a song, it stimulates our auditory cortex and we convert the rhythms, melodies, and harmonies into a coherent whole. From there, our reaction to music depends on how we interact with it. Sing along to a song in your head, and you’ll activate your premotor cortex, which helps plan and coordinate movements. Dance along, and your neurons will synchronize with the beat of the music. Pay close attention...

Plug In Stereo's self-titled album, coming on next Tuesday, will be Trevor Dahl's last release under the monicker before moving on to a new solo project.
This album explores just about everything in my life that has happened since I started Plug In Stereo. I wrote "Better Off Alone" when leaving high school, I wrote "Give It Up" when my girlfriend and I broke up, I wrote "Hey There Little Bird" when I felt like giving up, etc, So the album is really going to let people know more about my personal life. I've been working on this collection of songs for a long long time. Some songs were written this year, some of them are 4 years old. I just wanted this album to be full of the best/most...

Billboard has reported that there is a lot in the works for The Ramones.
"The 40th anniversary of the Ramones is coming up in 2016, that's when the first album came out. So we have a lot of projects leading up to that. We're looking at a documentary on the Ramones, we just secured a ton of footage, much of which has never been seen before," he says. "It came from the Ramones on the road over the years in the Seventies and a little bit in the Eighties, from a gentleman who had shot them, his name is George Seminara." The documentary is just one of several projects in the works. Among the others are a theatrical play, a book and a film, which already has Oscar-winning director Martin...
