This week's episode of Encore starts with a discussion about fostering creativity and how we try to stay sharp and inspired and not fall into a rut. It's hard. We want to be better at it. Then we look at the RIAA changing up how they certify albums, Brand New selling out MSG and announcing some kind of release this year, and looking at the difference between huge stadium like shows versus the small venues we're used to. We then answer some questions about favorite movies about music, the idea that bands should feel obligated to play "fan favorites" on tours, favorite bands from the UK, and the first albums we ever really anticipated. This week once again (fingers crossed) has chapter...

This week's episode of Encore looks at quite a bit of the news that broke over the past week. We talk about Kanye West releasing information about what is now Waves, Brand New and Modest Mouse going on a huge tour, Yellowcard's Lights and Sounds turns 10, and Brian Wilson is doing a 50-year tour for Pet Sounds. We also do some follow-up on last week's great "wrong tracklistings" discussion and all sorts of other fun stuff like guessing if Brand New will release an album and what it would sell, plus Thomas's thoughts on Panic's album now he's heard it, and a few brief thoughts on the new 1975 album at the end. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream and/or...

This week's episode of Encore has us looking at a variety of interesting, and diverse, topics. We talk a little about the next Star Wars being pushed back, a little about Thomas's collection of Funko collectables, and a little about Thomas wanting to buy an iPad Pro. We also discover that Thomas has had the wrong sequencing in his iTunes for Everything in Transit for almost a decade now. He discovers this live on the podcast. We tackle a variety of user questions related to Panic! at the Disco's new album, the TV show "Making a Murderer," and if we prefer soft or energetic album closers. We also talk some more about Brian Fallon and his upcoming album since Thomas caught him live...
Jason Tate on 01/21/16 - 03:57 PM
On this week's episode of Encore we look at the best stretches of three or more songs in albums, our preference of albums over playlists, bands going on hiatus, and if the internet has gotten more hostile lately. We then move into discussing the passing of David Bowie and how to get started on his massive catalog. The podcast ends with us talking about the new Kanye West song and Nielsen's 2015 report (and of course a little Star Wars thrown in).

Welp, here we are with the first episode of this year's Encore podcast. This week finds us giving a little follow-up on our past two episodes (Star Wars and End of the Year Lists), before diving into questions about albums we're looking forward to in 2016, music predictions, the meaning of "production," and what 10 year tours we'd like to see. We finish the episode giving our first impressions of the new Brian Fallon album, Painkillers, and talk about the new Kanye West song, and the possibilities for Green Day making a comeback this year.

We hope everyone is having a great New Year's eve -- probably playing a lot of Death Cab for Cutie, right? This is officially the last episode of the Encore podcast for 2015. This week Thomas and I look at our favorite albums that came out during the year, discuss how we picked them, why we picked them, where we put them, and then also talk a little about other "favorites" in the year (movies, TV shows, etc.). I'd like to wish everyone a happy end of the year -- stay safe out there! -- and say thank you to everyone that checked out the podcast this year. The website's "end of the year" feature will be going live next Wednesday, January 6th. 2015 saw a lot of changes (including the...

With the holiday weekend coming up we wanted to make sure you had enough time to download this week's episode of the Encore podcast early! So, we're coming at you today. That way you can download the episode for any long flights, drives, or just needing a way to drown out some drunk relative. This week's episode, as promised, is actually a special edition episode all about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It contains many, many, many spoilers. So, do not listen to this podcast if you haven't seen the movie yet! We basically run down every character, every plot point, and discuss what we liked, why, what we didn't like, what didn't quite work, and if our expectations were met and what we...
Jason Tate on 12/22/15 - 04:52 PM
Today's episode of Encore looks at the lead up to Star Wars (of course), before looking at this week's topics: Brian Fallon's new song, The 1975's new song, Paramore losing a member, Cartel releasing an acoustic album, The Starting Line releasing a new song, and some weirdness in the Bad Timing Records camp related to Bonfires. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream and/or downloaded this episode in the replies.

This week's episode of Encore has Thomas working in as many puns as possible to the show now. On this week's episode we talk about the idea of banning cell-phones from shows using a new service called Yondr, our thoughts on the new versions of Brand New's Leaked Demos 2006 (Note: This was recorded before #nobodymovesgate), speculation on why Sal Villanueva never produced more albums, Mailbox shutting down and what our email solution will be going forward, the semi-return of Set Your Goals, and Facebook selling concert tickets. There's (of course) some basketball and Star Wars talk peppered throughout. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream and/or downloaded this...

After a wonderful little holiday break, Encore is back with an episode spanning everything that's happened over the past two weeks. We talk about our Thanksgivings, real vs fake Christmas trees, Adele flat out destroying sales records, Foo Fighters releasing a surprise EP, Thrice recording a new album, Brand New releasing their leaked demos on tape and the story about the first time I heard them, the rumor that Apple will kill the 3.5mm audio port, and all sorts of other goodness peppered throughout.

It's December 1st -- which means the damn year went by really fast again. It also means it's holiday theme time again for the website. If it doesn't automatically change for you the option can be found at the bottom of your options page. Note: This only changes the desktop version of the site, not the mobile one. Also, if you like talking about Christmas music from bands of this ilk -- check out this thread.
Jason Tate on 12/01/15 - 12:20 PM
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. The website will be much slower in the news department than usual today as we gorge ourselves on food, drinks, and as much family and friends as we can handle. As Thomas wrote yesterday, the podcast is taking the week off as well. I just want to wish everyone a happy holiday.

The next few days always have a bunch of sales that show up for people to spend their money on, so I'm going to keep this thread open for the weekend and if there's a great deal you know about, please share it in the replies. Personally, I think this price on Amazon for one of my favorite pair of closed headphones, the Beyerdynamic DT-770s, is really good. Other sites worth checking...
Jason Tate on 11/26/15 - 12:56 PM
Given that we usually post new episodes of Encore on Thursdays, and tomorrow is Thursday, and also Thanksgiving, we've decided to take the week off from our regularly scheduled programming. Jason and I are both very thankful toward the folks who listen each week, and toward listeners who have just stopped by for an episode or two to see what the fuss is all about. With our rebranding and Teespring campaign this year, we were able to see first-hand how many people like listening to the show each week and it's still something we're not quite used to. We love recording the show every week and we love the interaction that we get to have with our listeners so often. It's a pleasure, and it...

This week's episode of Encore is almost as delicious as macaroni and cheese stuffed chicken wings. This week we look at if an early leak will hurt Adele, the idea of an "infinite" movie franchise, going to shows by yourself, what can impact the price of vinyl, if an artist contributing music to a political campaign bugs us, and the big topic: How would we "fix" Apple Music, the death of Rdio, and the retirement of the Zune.

This week's episode of Encore tackles world building in movies and where it works (Star Wars, Marvel, etc.) and where it fails (Spectre). We talk quite a bit about Star Wars in this one -- spurred by a certain someone live tweeting their first viewing of the series mere minutes before we started recording. We also look at the death of Cobra Starship, Brand New recording, and answer a variety of listener topics: how often we go to shows, do we play instruments, should Blink-182 re-record old music with Matt Skiba, is pop-punk trying too hard, did pop-punk rule the world this year, what is up with cassette tapes, what do we think of @FutureAltPress, do our significant others shape our...

Today I'd like to welcome new staff member Angelica Nicolle Abalos to our team!

Ever wonder about the first time I heard Good Charlotte? Probably not, but you can get the story in this week's episode of Encore. This week we look at why pop-punk no longer seems capable of writing a hook and can be painfully un-catchy at times, if we like "deluxe" albums, what albums we play most on vinyl, following up the Victory vs Spotify kerfuffle, Good Charlotte is back, we may get new The Starting Line music next year, ESPN shut down Grantland, and Conde Nast buying Pitchfork. Also a huge thank you to everyone that bought Encore t-shirts! Please send us some photos once you get yours.

This week on Encore the pop-punk ladder explains to me what it means to be "posi." I learn something new about all these youngins every day. This week's topics include: Basketball is back, the Star Wars trailer was released and watched, some bands do "follow backs" on Twitter and that's kinda weird, music being listening to exclusively on YouTube, advice for someone wanting to be a music producer, Spotify vs Victory Records vs Streetlight Manifesto, Adele, Google Play Podcasts, the new Apple TV, and favorite singles so far in 2015. Please note: This is the last week you can get a t-shirt if you want one! So pick one up. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream...

Hope everyone is having a good Sunday, I'm currently enjoying a burrito induced coma. Just wanted to make a quick reminder about the podcast's current teespring campaign. It's running for a little over one more week - so if you want a shirt make sure you pick one up! Big thanks to everyone that has already grabbed one.
Jason Tate on 10/25/15 - 01:32 PM
I'm not sure I'm used to typing Encore yet when introducing the new podcast episodes. However, here we are with episode 101. Just a quick reminder that there are 12 days left to pick up our limited run of Encore t-shirts on teespring and thank you to everyone that has ordered one so far. I can't wait to see pictures of people wearing the new logo. This week's episode has us discussing some football, talking a little about other podcasts we like to listen to, the idea of "self-titled" albums and if they should have a certain "feel" to them or not. Then we discuss Thrice's Vheissu turning 10 and how much that album in particular meant to me, Fall Out Boy's re-release of "Irresistible,"...

We made it to the 100th episode of our podcast -- now it's time to shake things up. Today we'd like to introduce you to the new podcast: Encore. We've undergone a name change, a little re-brand, and we're coming at you with a brand new special episode this week. This week's topics look at the reasons we decided to make this change, the process we went through in picking our new name and logo, the announcement of a special teespring campaign for limited edition Encore t-shirts, a special segment with guest Drew Beringer (where we talk about new music, what Drew's been up to, technology, and all kinds of stuff), and then -- of course -- we end talking about Jesse Lacey's emotional speech...

Look at us! Back with another podcast episode with zero break in-between. This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at Andrew McMahon's single finally getting some traction and our thoughts about singles taking off a while after they debut, The Wonder Years/MCS split, Foxing's new song and album, Moving Mountains returning, Brian Fallon recording with Butch Walker, Tom DeLonge's book excerpt, some college football, good customer service, and much more!

There's something perfectly comforting about recording a podcast last night and posting it today. We're back after a mini (and unforeseen) little break in our podcasting schedule. But, things are now back on track. This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at some follow-up on our last episode and The Wonder Years, Apple Music's trial ending and if we're going to keep paying for it, how we handle and get album advances, the new TWIABP album, the new Motion City Soundtrack album, Ryan Adams' '1989' cover album, and the whole Collect Records/pharma-bro thing. Thank you to everyone that listens to our podcast each week. We've got some really awesome things prepared for the...

This week's a special episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. We offer to you two topics: A discussion about Thomas's decision to retire from the website and a lengthy discussion about The Wonder Years' new album No Closer to Heaven. Not only was it a marathon podcasting session, but I think the result was one of our best episodes. We tried to really get into the details of looking at the reactions to an album from a die-hard Wonder Years' fan and someone who is pretty indifferent to the band's catalog. Someone that thinks the band is elevating themselves to rarified air in the music scene and pop-punk, and someone that's not convinced they're in that conversation yet. It's like the Odd...

Hello. I wanted to take a moment to tell everyone here that today will be my last day as a Senior Editor for AbsolutePunk. I'll be moving into the "retired staff" category -- my username will still be red, but I won't be contributing any more news posts or reviews, etc, to the site any longer (though I'll continue to co-host the podcast with Jason). My last post, which I've published today, is a review of The Wonder Years' No Closer To Heaven. In an effort to not take up a bunch of homepage real estate, I've written a letter about this on my new personal blog -- you can read that here if you want. After five and a half years of writing for this site, it's safe to say that AP.net and its...

The Maine are stopping by to chat on the website today. If you hit the replies you'll be able to ask them questions about their latest release American Candy, their upcoming tours (dates are also in the replies), or really anything you'd like. The band will be chatting with blue verified names.

Update: The band has headed off to play their show tonight. Huge thank you to the band for answering some questions and everyone who came by to say hi! Make sure to check out their latest album and see them on their upcoming tour.
Jason Tate on 08/31/15 - 02:30 PM
This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at the great american recipe: Coca-Cola Classic. Other topics include: Should rock music have more "music collectives," can we really believe bands when they say they're on "hiatus" these days, what we would do if we owned a label and a situation like what happened with Neck Deep occurred, 'Born to Run' turning 40, 'Everything in Transit' turning 10, and a preview discussion about The Wonder Years. Bonus topics: bikes, being an adult, and moving. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

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...

Well, it's Friday. I hope everyone enjoyed Absolute 100 week. At this point we've given you 100 new and diverse bands spanning all kinds of genres to check out.

When we finished recording this week's podcast episode I tweeted that it was my favorite we've done in a while. Listening back today while editing I still feel that way. We touch on a lot of bigger overarching themes this week. If you've never given one of our podcasts a try, this would be a good one to start with. With the news about Property Of Zack shutting down we discuss the life of writing online. We talk about what we would want our "legacy" to be, what advice we would have for someone wanting to start their own music blog in 2015, and why sometimes it becomes time to walk away from the things that have defined you. We also answer some reader questions about favorite movies so far...

Did you know Thomas can dunk? This is the episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast where I try and convince him to rename his basketball team "Defend Pop-Dunk." This week we also talk about if listeners will accept the "new" Blink-182, what the "hiatus" means for The Gaslight Anthem, do we think it's ok for record labels to exist only to re-press albums, something about Brand New, the Vinylify service, and Bill Simmons' move to HBO and its impact on the internet/media world.

We got a lot of feedback on last week's AbsolutePunk Podcast episode and this week we tackle it all. We answer questions about if Warped Tour should take a year off to get their shit together, if in hindsight we think Apple's acquisition of Beats was worth it, thoughts on PVRIS, thoughts on DRM, the impossibility of answering a "three favorite albums of all time" question, and the economics of asking fans to buy stuff before getting to meet a band. We end the episode looking at the five apps we first install on a new computer and talk about The Maine's free tour and how we think that'll all work out.

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"...
Jason Tate on 07/16/15 - 02:18 PM
This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast avoids any power outages, but still comes filled with great topics. This week touches on some Apple Music follow-up: what's it like with the app a week in? Are we still using it? What are the hang ups? Why does the iOS app not respect album artwork selections? What are our favorite smart playlists? Then we talk a little about what albums we're anticipating most for the rest of the year building on the discussion last week of our favorite albums of 2015 so far (and the full staff lists that were posted this week). Then there's some discussion about bands that Thomas sort of missed out on and bands Jason missed out on and we discuss -- live...

Happy Friday everyone! I had planned to spend the day catching up on podcasts and relaxing for the long Fourth of July weekend. So, first things first: I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend. Definitely take advantage of that Apple Music trial to try out some new music while watching fireworks (I wrote up a few things Iíve been listening to lately on my blog). Usually this is the part of the week where Iíd link to something funny, random, or interesting that I found over the past week. However, after seeing my Twitter at-replies this morning Iím just not in the mood for that right now. Instead, since I need more than 140 characters and Iím getting a bunch of questions about my...

What happens when the power goes out in the middle of recording a podcast? Welp, you lose the first few minutes of your talk about The Wonder Years apparently. We were able to salvage the conversation using my back-up recording; however, Thomas's vocals are a little different for the first five to ten minutes of this one -- sorry about that -- we get that fixed relatively quickly and then we're on to a jam-packed episode. We start with talking about The Wonder Year's new song, video, album, and everything associated with that. Then we move into a talk all about the newly released Apple Music. What are our thoughts? Are we going to stick with it? What do we like, dislike, hate, and love?...
