I always enjoy making the first post on AP.net about a band -- it's just something about introducing a bulk of the community to something new. Whether you've heard the name Makeshift Shelters before or not, we're happy to acquaint you with the Washington, D.C.-based act's new full-length album, Something So Personal, in the form of the LP's lead track, "Opposite Directions." You can find the song streaming in the replies. Ella Boissonnault's vocals are what sticks out on first listen, but I keep coming back to the track because it vaguely reminds me of an intrinsic quality I believe Makeshift Shelters share with Motion City Soundtrack -- I hate to throw out the word "quirkiness," but I...

Bleed American is releasing its debut full-length record, Figure It Out, on Valentine's Day and today we're streaming one of the songs from that album. "Movie Theatre Theft" is one of my favourites because it showcases how good these guys are at writing hooks and has been stuck in my head for the last few months. If you don't mind that this Winnipeg based named themselves after a Jimmy Eat World record you should listen to it in the replies and let us know what you think. This is honestly the first pop-rock record that's really caught my attention since Brighter Brightest released Right For Me in 2011. Pre-orders are available right now via iTunes.

Hey ... did you hear Acceptance is playing Skate and Surf? I'm going to be talking with the band in the near future and I've obviously got a bunch of questions I want to ask; however, I started thinking: is there a bigger collection of Acceptance fans online than here on the website? It's always seemed like we've been ground zero for Acceptance fandom. So, with that, I think it makes the most sense that I ask questions you guys want to know. Hit up the replies and let me know -- I'll end up asking the ones I see the most often.

Phil Labonte from All That Remains says that homosexuals don't have "legit grievances" about slurs.
“Honestly, I think the only people that have a legit grievance when it comes to any racial slurs is the black community,” Labonte said. “I know the homosexual community has problems with it and I understand their hurt feelings. But homosexuals were never property. They’ve had a rough time and I’m not trying to minimize that, but I think the black community has a whole lot more room to be upset about a word than the LGBT community.

David Pogue reviews the Pono Player. It's not pretty.
You’ve got to admit it: The argument for the Pono Player sure is appealing — that we don’t know what we’ve been missing in our music.

Unfortunately, it isn’t true.

Rick Rubin has created a profile on Genius.com and annotated quite a few songs.
Something that I learned through the process is that when artists have done it for a long time, a certain pattern takes over their lives. They’re on the road, and then there’s a window where they can make a record. It’s just a function of the schedule. The album is what happens between those two weeks of touring: that’s your record. Not a lot of care goes into it.

My job is often just breaking that pattern. We’re going to take as long as it takes, like it’s the most important thing in the world, and make the best record of your life. When I said that to Johnny, he looked at me like I was insane. It was...

Jade Puget recently talked with the OC Register and said a new AFI album is in the works.
Though they’re not entirely sure whether XTRMST is a one-off or another side project they’ll keep around, Puget said that he and Havok are nearly finished with their third Blaqk Audio record and that a tenth studio album, from AFI is next on the list. However, if XTRMST decides to kick back up again, Puget said he’s definitely not short on ideas.
