Last week I had the chance to see Say Anything perform alongside a string quartet. It was an intimate Sunday night performance at Philadelphia's Electric Factory with a solid line-up of support: Modern Baseball, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Hard Girls.

For Shy Technology, music wasn't a hobby, but a necessity. Back in December 2008, frontman David Coulson's life changed in the blink of an eye when he received a call from his mother, informing him that she had been diagnosed with stage-3 breast cancer. After quitting his job, dropping out of school, and driving all alone from Phoenix, Arizona back to his home in Villa Park, Illinois, Coulson made the decision to reconnect with old friends, start a band, and channel his struggles and stories into visceral indie rock music.

After six and a half years, two EPs and one full-length, a few lineup changes, and a successful cancer battle for Coulson's mom, Shy Technology are...

The Obsessives are a young band from the Washington, D.C. area, and probably at least partially because they are young and full of general angst, they are the type of band that puts recordings of voicemail messages in the middle of their songs. This is an essential rite of passage for many emo bands, a category The Obsessives are fairly placed into: Their new single, "Bored," which is in the replies, sounds like when you're driving to your parents' house from college and it's very, very late because you left too late, but you obviously have to stay awake and it's a matter of life or death that you don't fall asleep. The track is only two minutes and eleven seconds long, of which only...

It would be easy to sell you on Fit For Rivals by telling you that frontwoman Renee Pheonix is an inspiring feminist and activist, but I'd rather let their killer music do the talking. Head to the stream their new EP, Sugar, which drops today. The Jacksonville band melds Foo Fighters-esque rock with pop sensibilities, electronic flourishes and raspy, punk vocals reminiscent of Joan Jett and Brody Dalle.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast is here. This episode starts out with a talk about ... what did you expect? ... beer. We answer a reader question about if Fueled by Ramen would be a good fit for The Wonder Years, we talk about buying glasses and seeing Acceptance and The Money Pit over the weekend. We discuss the AP.net member's list of the best 50 albums of the last 15 years and if we could even begin to formulate such a list. We finish up talking about Bring Me the Horizon signing to a major label, the benefits of being on a major label in 2015, if we think this is a good idea, if we think this will be the start of a bunch of metalcore bands going to the "big leagues"...

CHVRCHES will release their new album, Every Open Eye, on September 25th. The debut single will premiere tonight on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show.
Because the album was written over such a long period of time, it’s about the goods and the bads, the beginnings and ends. Personally, I’m in a good place right now, but there’s definitely anti-love songs on there as well. “Leave a Trace” is the middle finger mic-drop. It’s about that point where you’re like, “There’s no point having this conversation anyways: There will be no resolve, I won’t feel better about it, you won’t feel better about it, no outcome from this will actually change my reality.” It makes me feel better to write about...
