I often find myself listening to a lot of indie/folk this time of year, so now is perfect time to share yellowbirddd's new single, "Thinking Out Loud," with you. The singer-songwriter will release his fourth album, CENTINELA, digitally and on vinyl via flower/flour records on December 2nd; you can pre-order it now on bandcamp. If you enjoy the reflective stylings of Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst, you're not going to want to miss this one.
If you take a look at record grooves at around 1000x magnification -- you can see the waveforms of the music itself. You can also check the replies for a video of a record playing under a microscope. Happy Friday everyone!
Yesterday it was reported that AC/DC's drummer Phil Rudd was charged "with attempting to procure murders" -- today the New Zealand Herald is reporting that the murder-for-hire charge has been dropped. The threatening to kill and drug charges remain.

These Santa Cruz, California punk rock/hardcore heroes have once again teamed up with Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore (Descendents, The Blasting Room)—the production team for over half of Good Riddance’s illustrious catalog — to record their first album of new material since reuniting in 2012.
The xx are in the process of recording their new album. They posted a message to their email list.

In the spring we spent a few weeks in the incredible and unique town of Marfa in Texas. Then, in Summer we spent some time just outside of Reykavik in Iceland. This Autumn we have been back in London, writing and having some time at home but this week we are heading out to Los Angeles to continue the writing and recording process.
Although all very different, each of these places have been inspirational environments to create music in,...

Today, I'm proud to bring you a new AbsolutePlaylist member submission! codeseven (Daniel) hails from North Carolina and has been a member with us since 2006. He explained a little bit about his selections: "As far as why I picked the songs I did, it's a bit hard to describe. Fall generates a feeling that you can't quite put into words, but you experience it through sight and sound. That's why I chose the songs I did. While I didn't necessarily focus on lyrical content, I went with what gave me that feeling. The songs that I can listen to with my eyes close and can perfectly picture the leaves falling off of the trees, the gray clouds covering the sky, the night air getting cooler on my...
