In this week's AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason calls up and Zack from PropertyOfZack to talk about the state of blogs and what it’s like when you make a lot of changes. Do users rebel? Are people ready for the next AP.net?

Have you met Sorority Noise? I sure hope not, otherwise what are we even doing here? A fuzzy, dirty pop-rock band who probably belong in mid-90's England rather than 2013 Connecticut, Sorority Noise features Cameron Boucher (Old Gray) on vocals, Kevin O'Donnell on bass and Jason Rule on drums (both of Two Humans semi-fame). The band are releasing their Young Luck EP on cassette via Broken World Media as we speak, and you can go ahead and stream the song "Queen Anne's Lace" in the replies. It's like Morrissey's little brother high-fiving the good parts of Daisy. And that's a fact, not up for interpretation. Please don't go against the family on this one. Bye love you.

As the leaves start falling and the nights get colder, music becomes an even greater companion when the temperatures start to dip and the winds pick up. I've rounded a handful of AP.net staffers to recommend their favorite albums to put on the turntable when the days get shorter. Spanning from indie to hip-hop to post-hardcore, this eclectic list will have something for everyone and will inspire many fall playlists. Check out our picks in the replies and let us know what records you turn to in the fall.

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, The Engine Atlantic have slowly been creating their spot in the Philly music scene since 2011. Today we're premiering a new single called "I Grew Under Water" that definitely is reminiscent of late 2000s pop rock and was produced by Bruce Wiegner (On My Honor, Victory In Numbers). Listen to the track in the replies.

Tonight we're chatting with Anberlin and The Maine. Although originally scheduled for 8 PM EST, we've bumped this to 8:30 PM EST due to some technical difficulties for the bands first day of tour. Currently, Anberlin will join us at 8:30 PM EST and The Maine will switch in at 9 PM EST.

Update: The guys have to wrap up and start their first night of tour! Thanks again for chatting and catch them on the road this fall!

Here's a friendly reminder that Anberlin and The Maine will be chatting with us tonight at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST. In addition, we're giving away a pair of tickets to the tour to the person who asks the best question regarding the tour. Leave your question in the replies with your local date and the band will select a winner.

Update: Due to it being the first day of tour, certain tasks are taking longer than expected. Therefore, Anberlin will be chatting from 8 - 8:30 and then The Maine will take over from 8:30 - 9.

The only thing more exciting than pumpkin spice everything and horror movie events is October's insane slate of upcoming releases. Remember when I thought the month of September was going to be insane? Yeah, just kidding. There are a ton of stellar releases that span all genres in October, which will give music fans plenty of options to sort through for their end of year lists during the scarce months of November and December. So check out my most anticipated albums for the month of October in the replies and let us know what you're really excited for in the spookiest month of 2013.

Welcome to My Back Pages, a collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike, most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

Today, we're resurrecting the feature after a five month hiatus. Chris disappeared off to the deserts and...

Head to the replies for this week's Small Band Round-Up.
Christian Wagner on 09/29/13 - 05:37 PM
I caught up with producer/engineer Will Yip (Balance and Composure, Man Overboard, Anthony Green, Title Fight ) after the inaugural Studio 4 Session last week. We talked about how he balances work with his personal life and how the Studio 4 sound stacks up against Sound City. Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation is set to release October 8th.
Right now, I have the chance to make the coolest music with my best friends, and I'm lucky. Why would I not do that every second I can?

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I came across the chilled out, experimental indie rock of New Jersey four piece Goodbye Tiger. Their new EP, Who Do You Call Home?, is four tracks of exciting experimentation that brings to mind earlier music from Foals and all of those super hip bands that that cute guy in your class, with the skinny jeans and Dinosaur Jr tee collection, listens to. If you want to win over his heart, have a listen to the EP on their Bandcamp. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.

Dan and Adam will be chatting about all that and more at 5 PM EST in this thread. Let's have some fun.

Update: The chat is now over - big thanks to Dan and Adam for taking time out of their day to talk with us. Make sure you see the band on the upcoming 'Scream It Like You Mean It' Tour and pick up 'Page Avenue Acoustic' in two weeks!.

This week on the 18th episode of the AbolutePunk.net Podcast, Jason and I talk with Casey Crescenzo of The Dear Hunter about his upcoming four movement symphony project. What’s it like to tackle something completely unlike anything he’s done before? The in-depth discussion and answers may just inspire you to try it yourself.

Sorry about the week off and lack of notice, everyone. The guy that owns my house keeps telling me I have to pay rent or something, so I've been looking into getting another one of these "jobs" (before you say anything, yes, I tried running the old '...but I'm an acclaimed comedy journalist' routine by him; surprisingly ineffective) and unfortunately it got in the way of my AP duties for awhile, but I'm back, baby dolls, and with arguably my biggest guest yet. Director of films such as Wet Hot American Summer & Role Models and one of the main creative forces behind such shows as The State & Childrens Hospital, I sat down yesterday with the fantastic David Wain. So head over to my blog to...
