So here are the staff recommendations for this week. Check in regularly as AP staff add their favorites of this week. My guess is that Drew will recommend Moneen, Jason will recommend Morrissey, Jared will recommend Taking Back Sunday, Scott and Garett will recommend Gatsby's American Dream, Brandon will recommend The Stilleto Formal and Darren will recommend The Weakerthans, Tourmaline, and/or Propaghandi. Let's see.

Jason Tate: Fuck you Gabe, I recommend A Wilhelm Scream.
Gabe: As always...hot rex, hot sex.
Garett: Gabe is a tool, Cavil at Rest, Rx Bandits - "Only for the Night", Islands
Darren: Gabe is wrong. I recommend Murder By Death.

Staff recommendations (Click "Read more" to view all of them):

Frank- I recommend setting your clock forward tonight or you'll be really confused for the next 6 months.
Ryan- Here are my recs for this week.
Greg - I recommend Liam and Me and Tokyo Rose.
Paul - The Olivia Tremor Control. They were in the same collective as Neutral Milk Hotel and Apples In Stereo; they sound like late-Beatles to me.

Greg D - My recs are here.
