Jason TateI've been keeping my blog updated.
Ryan GardnerReally nice weather the last few days means a lot of Motion City Soundtrack, Jimmy Eat World, Relient K, and Transit. Also, the upcoming Cartel and Senses Fail records are really good.
Lueda AliaI've been seeing this extremely talented musician, Gareth Bush, play at one of my favourite pubs here in London for months, and he only gets better. In fact, he is so good that I decided to break my silence in these Sunday recommendations just to give him some exposure. His cover of "Scream & Shout" is flawless, and his upcoming EP is even better. If you like City & Colour, then this is a must listen.

Why do you stay until you see blood?
Ryan GardnerThe new Pentimento, P.O.S., Bad Books, and Anberlin records
Alex DiVincenzoDefinitely grab the new Pentimento, and donate if you like it (you will). Speaking of donations, The Swellers are donating 100% of digital sales of their killer new EP, Running Out of Places to Go, to Occupy: Sandy Relief NYC. And the new Geoff Rickly mixtape is cool.
Kelly DohertyAtom And His Package's Hair: Debatable has been cheering me up all week, Titus Andronicus' Local Business is a highlight of their back catalogue and Noah Gundersen is a recommendation for anyone who likes folk of any type.

Deborah Remus Off With Their Heads. Still bummed they got turned away at the Canadian border yesterday.

Adam PfleiderCaspian's Waking Season.
Alex DiVincenzoThe Offspring's Americana was my first CD when I was 9. It opened the door to punk rock for me, so I guess you could say it changed my life. Somehow I had never seen them until a couple weeks ago, and shooting them was a cool, nostalgic experience. Look at my photos here.
Kelly DohertyThe Little Indians' An Album From The Little Indians has been making me happy all week (read my review of it here), Joie De Vivre's We're All Better Than This and I've been chronologically making my way through the joy that is Bright Eyes' back catalog.

BlakeI got into a weird and oddly philosophical (for me, at least) conversation about Weezer the other day, and have been spinning them non-stop. The Blue Album, Pinkerton, Raditude and Maladroit, to be exact. Lots of great stuff, and "Trampoline" from Death to False Metal is also a gem. Never been a big fan, but I'm digging now, especially after engrossing myself in lots of backstory. Love it when that happens.

BlakeI'm listening to Wolves At The Gates' new album Captors and it's pretty much exactly what I expected. Loud, religious (probably) and pretty fun. I've also re-found Saosin's self-titled record this week. "Sleepers" is such a jam. Happy early 4th of July.

Either way, let's not do it. Let's just talk like family (which is to say shout and cry a lot).
BlakeMisser isn't better than Transit, but it is way better than This Time Next Year. Also, I have nothing but love for the Park leftovers that make up the Tiger Tank self-titled EP. Bye.

Be sure to tell your mother how wonderful she is today.
Ryan GardnerThe Gaslight Anthem. That is all.
Kyle HuntingtonI've been listening to a whole lot of King Krule again as well as the free debut EP by the band Riches which you should check out if you enjoy My Bloody Valentine or The Jesus & Mary Chain.
Jack ApplebyBeen feeding my newfound vinyl addiction, so I've had City and Colour, Letlive., and Thrice spinning recently. Made myself a Spotify playlist of the Thrice farewell setlist I've been listening to a lot - here it is if you're interested. Also, Night Verses.

Almost a week into May already? What's everyone been listening to, watching, or reading this week?
Ryan GardnerI've been spinning Mayday Parade's timeless A Lesson In Romantics all week, as well as the latest from The Menzingers, fun., and Daytrader. Starting up the new Stephen King Dark Tower book tomorrow (finally).
Andy BiddulphBeen listening to an awful lot of the latest Japandroids, Straight Lines and Daytrader records. Also, a huge pat on the back to everybody who donated to help The Menzingers make their money back after they were robbed in Manchester last week; especially the guys at Banquet Records who raised £1,600 (including £250 of their own money) for the cause. Also, the...

Hi, once again welcome to the time of the week where we tell you what to do and you listen because what else do you have to do? As our moms say, "You're so important! Stop stealing my lipstick! What do you even do with the lipstick!?" So basically, what I'm saying is, what you are about to read is essentially gospel. Let us pray.
BlakeI got an xbox360 this week with my tax return money because I am an ADULT. So I recommend a bunch of games you nerds have already played (but especially Batman: Arkham City). Musically, who knows. Mostly Old Gray and Craft Spells' new mini album Gallery. It's as solid and surf rock-y as ever. Oh, and of course, All Get Out.

If you're anything like me, and if you are, lucky you, it's been one of those weeks where things seem to happen at you. Kind of like we're in a firing squad and all the bullies have tied us to a lightpost and the tomatoes and hard-boiled eggs are just coming full speed ahead no matter what. Because that was such a happy, and most importantly, smart analogy, I'll end on a high note and just get to the recommendations
BlakeOther than still being obsessed with All Get Out, I've really been enjoying Caravels' 2010 album Floorboards. It's one of those scream-y, angst-y, post rock-y albums Adam P always likes. Also, the split by Citizen and Turnover is solid. Especially the acoustic renditions...
