As I talked about a little in this week's podcast, I've been working on a lengthier article in response to a lot of the stuff that's been going on in our music scene lately. It's on my blog because it gets long and I think it's a better reading experience there.
Sometimes I find myself trapped in a cycle of cynicism, believing that the way things are is the how they will stay. I remember feeling this way a lot during those first Bush-as-President years, and Iíve felt the dark coils wrapped around my mind again recently. With all of the news popping up around the Pure Noise Records situations, the what-feels-like weekly new discoveries of misconduct within the music scene, and the almost...

And the podcast returns. This week's episode has us looking at Thomas's change in career and the stages of life and jobs and everything related to growing up and older. We talk about what my long term plans for running AbsolutePunk may look like, or turn into, and where we see ourselves in a few years. We spend some time looking back at everything that's gone on over the past two weeks with Pure Noise Records, Set if Off, Warped Tour, the YouTubers, and that whole ... thing. Then, thanks to listener Lauren, we're able to take a lighthearted break to fantasize about where we'd want to live if we weren't living in the United States. Beer and beach please. We finish up this week's episode...

This Century are breaking up.
We have decided as a band that after eight amazing and fulfilling years, we will be closing this chapter of our lives and stepping out into the next. This band has allowed us to grow and learn more about each other than we ever thought we would, and we all feel like weíre better people because of that and because of you guys. We love each other like brothers, we always have and we always will, so weíre happy to say this isnít a result of anything negative. This Century has been an amazing experience, but we unanimously agreed while we were making this new album that it was time to move on to pursue each of our passions and musical projects. We wanted to see...

Spotify announced some new things today, MacStories has a good rundown.
Spotify is also revamping their music recommendation features with a simpler Now page. By combining editorial curation with algorithms for intelligent suggestions, Spotify wants to encourage users to start listening to music in different times of the day with a simplified UI that doesn't require users to carefully browse music and assemble playback queues. Spotify has been building up their curation features over the past year, highlighting curated playlists that are presented in the app depending on when a user opens Spotify's Discover section. It appears that Now is based upon the company's existing curated picks,...
