Ilya Goldberg, Emancipator's violinist, has announced that he will be releasing his debut album under the moniker Lapa. The album, titled Meeting of the Waters is coming out on September 9th via Loci Records. You can hear the first single “Roadwalk” in the replies, or download it at “Name Your Price” on Bandcamp.

While the Russian composer and violinist’s talent and extensive knowledge and interest in Western music set him apart in his home country, Goldberg quickly realized that in order to fully utilize and broaden the scope of his musical ambitions, he would need to relocate to America. His debut record is a testament to that commitment. His music explodes with the technicolor...

A Jawbreaker fan, who used to sell bootlegs of the band's b-sides on eBay -- 15 years ago -- wrote to the band to apologize and repay the money.
I got a letter today. No return address on the envelope. I open it up and a couple of postal money orders fall out. I figure it's someone having trouble with the jawbreakerband website ordering a shirt or record. I read the note:

Kevin Devine talks about the new Desaparecidos record for The Talk House.
It looks good on him. I’ve always felt Desaparecidos was the best fit for Oberst’s most unhinged, freaked-out vocal performances, and working in this context seems to have ignited a compelling aspect of the storyteller in him. Payola details the pervasive horror and battered hope of a moment boiling over with institutional rot both macro (American imperialism, antiquated religious zealotry) and micro (the yawning death of the record business, as addressed on “Backsell”). Oberst’s lyrics are direct (“All the founding fathers sowed their seeds into servant girls”), blunt (“It’s a locker room of CFOs telling racist...

The Associated Press is reporting that former Owl City member Daniel Jorgensen has been charged with criminal sexual contact and attempting to lure a 14-year-old girl to his hotel room in Atlantic City in 2013.
Authorities say he committed criminal sexual contact on the beach and then tried to lure the girl to his hotel room and the band's tour bus to have sex. Bail was set at $100,000. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney. The second-degree attempted luring charge carries a potential penalty of five to 10 years in prison. Jorgensen played guitar for Owl City.

Beats 1 now allows you to listen to the shows again via replays.
The easiest way to find Replays is to look for the DJ's curator page on Connect (such as "Julie Adenuga on Beats 1"), tap the Connect tab, and look for a playable Replay. This way, you'll be able to listen to a show in its entirety without having to skip the DJ talk and interviews with the playlists – which are still available if you only want to get the songs from each show.

Hit the replies to stream a new song and music video from Donovan Wolfington titled "Mosquito" via Nerdist. How to Treat the Ones You Love releases August 21st via Topshelf Records and can be preordered here. If the three released tracks are any indication, this very well may be an AOTY contender.

The folks over at Modern Vinyl have a new podcast called Missaligned. Our very own Caitlin DeWeese is one of the hosts along with Deanna Chapman and Ashley Aron. You can check out the first episode in the replies.
Welcome to Missaligned, the first extension of the MV Podcast family and a biweekly show produced and created by Deanna Chapman, Ashley Aron and Caitlin DeWeese. Personally, I wanted a show that featured strong women, talking about issues that pertain to our female readers and beyond. And while I’m sure their focus will expand throughout the podcast’s lifetime (which I hope is long and extensive) I think we’ve found just that. Can’t tell you how excited I am for this to...

Every month I'm going to be featuring a pick from the AbsolutePunk community. This month's pick is from Matthew Buonanno (Spencer Control), who has chosen an album most worthy of being called "Best of Bandcamp." Read his beautiful writeup below.

Jonathan Cooke is not a man easily deterred. Simultaneously an exercise in rolling with the punches and an ostensible labor of love, his project Illustrated Manual has produced, as of yet, a single official release by the name of The Long and Tangled Beard. Recording it over the course of three years, alongside vocal cord surgery, and inside apartments, houses, and studios from Connecticut to San Francisco, Cooke was determined to bring The...

Milwaukee pop-punks Direct Hit! have re-recorded a bunch of old songs with their current line-up and today we're streaming the new version of "Werewolf Shame" in the replies. If you want to compare the two we actually also premiered the music video for the original version way back in 2010. If you like what you hear Red Scare Industries is releasing More Of The Same (Satanic Singles 2010-2014) digitally on August 14th and physically on August 21st. Pre-orders are also available. We've been digging this band for awhile and we're sure that you will too.

We recently chatted with Fat Mike and Erin Burkett about the 25th anniversary of Fat Wreck Chords.
I think Rise Against is the only band that never really partied much. That’s the label I want. A label with a bunch of drunk, drug using, non-religious fuck ups. Those are the people who will always play music because they love it.

Tom May (The Menzingers) has created the #IceburgChallenge, a social media challenge similar to the Ice Bucket Challenge, but with the goal to get the person being nominated drunk instead of to raise money for charity. The premise is to perform some portion of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" immediately followed by taking a shot of whatever you have available. Drink responsibly.
