You and me—Ryan Key. Together, we can bring The Lone Tree Recordings to life. As the lead singer and guitarist of Yellowcard, I practically grew up in a studio. I know how important it is for musicians to be able to write and record their music so they can share it with the world. So I'm reaching out to all music fans and musicians to help support this studio as a space for talented musicians to write and record the songs they love.
In Writing will release their debut album, While You Were Away, next Friday. But this Friday, we've got a nice treat so you can start your weekend off right.Head over to their profile where you can check out their single "Chelsea," which is a poppy emo song falling somewhere between The Promise Ring's Nothing Feels Good and Into It. Over It.'s Proper. Which means it's good. After listening be sure to preorder and then you can pick up a CD copy via All Sounds or a limited edition cassette via Superjazz Tapes.

Courtney Barnett has been teasing something to do with her track "Nobody Cares If You Don't Go To The Party" via billboards, murals and posters around various cities in the world. Only a couple of days ago it culminated in a surprise performance on the streets of Camden (my ends) in London just outside of the tube station. Check out the video for the track in the replies.
Peter Robinson, writing for Noisey, about ghostwriting:
But pop’s move towards a more rockist interpretation of credibility isn’t open for debate: it’s already happened, and you can understand why some artists are keen not to credit writers, or to insist that they are credited even if their sole contribution was managing to record their vocal while not falling over.
Wave. We're back from our one week break and are immediately talking about Star Wars. It's exactly what you would expect from a podcast named AbsolutePunk, right? This week we look at how the whole Pure Noise Records/JJR situation impacted being able to listen to Four Year Strong's latest album, why A Wilhelm Scream isn't as crazy big and popular as they should be, the reasoning behind labels streaming albums a week or so early, our favorite b-sides, the upcoming Motion City Soundtrack album and our fears surrounding it, if there's a song of the summer, Frank Turner's new one, the new Better Off songs, and some good old fashioned nostalgia. We missed podcasting and hope you enjoy this...
100% of the net proceeds will be donated to To Write Love On Her Arms for their World Suicide Prevention Day "We'll See You Tomorrow" campaign, as well as a charity chosen by a group of friends who were close with Justin

We've been doing this band for 13, 14 whatever years. I think that challenging ourselves to do new things is important. It's hard to find new things sometimes, you know? People said this tour was going to be polarizing, but we're doing bigger numbers than we've done before, you know? I think it's probably tapping into different kids or something.

Another "Maybe" may never present itself, but Jepsen doesn't mind. Meeting expectations is no longer on her agenda. " 'Call Me Maybe' was such a gift, but I don't need that to happen again," she says. "I wanted to be brave and [record] music that was really me rather than just putting out what I thought would sell. I would've regretted more not doing what I did -- *making a passion project come to life."
