I don't know about you guys, but I'll never turn down a harder-edged emo song. So I'm particularly stoked on our exclusive today: Mimisuki's "The Hand That Strikes the Flower." It carries a similar vibe to Jimmy Eat World's more aggressive material, a la "Bleed American," the song, or Desaparecidos' less aggressive material - the band shares members with Two Knights, if that'll convince you. You can listen to "The Hand..." on the band's profile, and if so inclined, you can preorder their new album The Thrills of Living from Count Your Lucky Stars; it comes out February 19.

Last week, I chatted on the phone with one of my favorite musicians, Stephen Christian (of Anchor and Braille, formerly of Anberlin). Our conversation touched on a variety of topics, from his new album Songs for The Late Night Drive Home, to the last days of Anberlin, and messages taken away from studying the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was a fascinating discussion to be a part of, so I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed speaking with him." You can find the full interview here.
People have this false impression where we still live in the 80s and 90s where musicians were rich. I had a job working for Ultimate Ears as a social media coordinator the last two and a half...

Note: These figures are indeed in Australian dollars. The current conversion rate is 1 AUD to .70 USD

In what is already the most bizarre story of the year to date, B.O.B, noted "flat earth" conspiracy theorist, has released a diss track directed at Neil Degrasse Tyson called "Flatline." B.O.B also shouts out a well-known Holocaust denier as well in the track. This story gets more and more depressing as I read more into it. The education system has seriously failed him. Hit the replies to listen to this trainwreck if you dare.

Now that the dust has finally settled from all of the 2015 EOTY coverage, we can surge full speed into the next stage of the annual music cycle: speculating about our most anticipated albums of 2016. I love this time of year, because it gives us all a chance to survey the musical landscape of the coming months and highlight spots on the horizon to look forward to. Here, the AbsolutePunk.net staff have put together a list of some of the albums that we are most looking forward to this year, and from heavyweight favorites (Kanye West, Brand New) to lesser-known artists poised to have huge years (Aubrie Sellers, Pinegrove), we believe our favorite records of 2016 are somewhere on ...

From The New York Times:
The National Security Agency’s ability to spy on vast quantities of Internet traffic passing through the United States has relied on its extraordinary, decades-long partnership with a single company: the telecom giant AT&T. While it has been long known that American telecommunications companies worked closely with the spy agency, newly disclosed N.S.A. documents show that the relationship with AT&T has been considered unique and especially productive. One document described it as “highly collaborative,” while another lauded the company’s “extreme willingness to help.”
