The A.V. Club is in the midst of running through its busy "end of the year" coverage for 2013, and we recently got the chance to speak with Josh Modell, the site's Editor-in-Chief, and Kyle Ryan, its Editor, about their "23 best albums of 2013" list. Over the course of the interview, we talked about the year's best records, how the A.V. Club tabulates its year-end lists, whether or not it's currently cool to like Drake or Fall Out Boy, and a plethora of other musical minutia. Read the interview here.

I worked with AP.net user John Boles (Align in Time), you may have seen him around the site, to post an interview with Matthew Healy from The 1975. It's worth grabbing a beer, tossing on their latest album, and reading straight through.
I kind of became a parody of myself. All of these elements of my personality that I’ve spoken about on the record were being validated by people really liking it, so I was becoming more and more like that, an excuse to be at my most, you know, polarizing and my personality, that was being endorsed by those people, and it’s even more like that now. If I wanted to, I could become more and more and more like myself; I’m very aware of that, I’m very aware...

Check out our interview with Less Than Jake's Vinnie Fiorello. We mostly discuss See The Light, which will be released on November 12th through Fat Wreck Chords. We also talk about the upcoming Fat tour and the band's future touring plans, which includes a cross Canada trek in 2014.
We’re not going to make Pezcore pt. 3 because that’s silly and regressive. It is upbeat and energetic, which I think some people are misunderstanding as back to the basics.

PureVolume recently spoke with Maja Ivarsson (The Sounds) about the band's upcoming new album, Weekend.
And you start to wonder about it. But maybe it has something to do with age, you know? I mean, gosh—we’re getting old. Well, kind of. I just turned 34 last week. But I kind of like it so far. And I want to grow old. I think it’s a beautiful thing, getting older, as long as you don’t totally turn ugly and fat and unhealthy. Although I have gained some weight lately. But hey—why not? And I think when you write songs, and this goes for most people, there’s always a certain time in your life, like your teenage years and your early 20s, where those years are so intense and so dramatic.

PureVolume recently spoke with Chris Hannah (Propagandhi) about the upcoming twentieth anniversary of his band's release, How To Clean Everything.
A song like "Ska Sucks" was never supposed to be played outside of Winnipeg. We had written the song just to piss off local skinheads who for some reason identified heavily with ska music in the early ‘90s. We didn't really want to record it but [label owner/NOFX's] Fat Mike wanted it so we thought, "Well, the guy is paying for it and no one is ever going to buy this thing, so who gives a shit?" Now it's the proverbial albatross around our necks for the rest of our lives.

I’ve never cared when people thought we were just a joke band. We always have just done our thing and written what we like and what was important to us. Luckily, people have stood by us. I feel like the people that marginalized Blink back in the day have now seen that we actually have staying power, and it’s kind of a good feeling.

Even if you're a fan of his music, it's easy to write off Kanye West's numerous public rants this year--whether at his concerts, another artist's listening party, or via Twitter--as mere publicity stunts, aimless babbling, or whatever. But if you read between the lines and actually think about the topics he's been bringing up during the Yeezus album cycle--including in his music--and especially if you paid attention to his interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, it's increasingly obviously that writing Kanye's rants off as such is in fact a lazy misrepresentation of what he's been trying to do.

Further proof of this emerged last night when Kanye sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the...
