Jason TateAs always, check out my blog and the AP.net podcast.
Aaron MookToday, I'm recommending a local (Erie, Pa) band called Frame & Mantle who blend the post-rock of bands like Caspian with the edge of Floral Green-era Title Fight. Plus, the band gets points for dressing up as the Belcher family for Halloween. Beach Slang's The Things We Do To Find People Like Us is an absolute blast of an album.

Chumped are going on hiatus.
It brings us a metric fuck ton of feels to say this, but tomorrow will be our last show for an indefinite period of time. We play FEST at The Wooly at 10:20PM (tmw, sunday). It would be really special if you all would come out to help us celebrate. Chumped played for the first time in front of other humans on February 5th, 2013. We never could have imagined the things that a little project started in an apartment in New York City could have allowed us to experience. We have traveled incredible distances, made beautiful friends and actualized seemingly impossible dreams. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this project, who has listened, who has...

Brendan Kelly, writing for Noisey, on why Pearl Jam is the most influential band of the 90s, notNirvana:
A few years ago, I interviewed Tom Delonge at an Angels & Airwaves show. He made sure to tell me about how he has always drawn his influence from the 70s’ mod scene, the band The Jam, and the esoteric symbolism surrounding the occult. He really said this. It took everything I had in me to not reply, “Um, no. You’re the dick-joke guy in blink-182, BRO. You grew up listening to NOFX, and we all watched you do it.”

Tom clearly just wanted to sound cooler than his influences. Which is fine. I want to sound cool in interviews, too.

Sammy Andrews, writing for Music Business Worldwide about combining streaming services with live shows:
The potential here is fucking huge… for all of us. Beyond the incredible potential for directly connecting with fans who are clearly likely to want to see certain bands live, something that really strikes me about this route is the incentive-based nature of the promotion Spotify are testing right now.

If we are about to see streaming services offering exclusive deals to ‘top listeners’ that could very well drive streams in the process. And as people want to have a chance of access these ‘exclusive’ promotions, it could also help the conversion from freemium to premium if it’s...

Eriq Gardner, writing for The Hollywood Reporter:
"Kesha now faces an abysmal decision: work with her alleged abuser...or idly and passively wait as her career tick-tocks away," writes her attorney. "She is precluded from working in perpetuity because the term of her contract can only be satisfied if she records three more albums. Kesha needs the Court’s assistance."

You haven't made it until The Onion write about you:
Saying they were excited to take their pop-punk sound in new and barely audible directions, Maryland-based rock band Good Charlotte revealed Wednesday that the group is hard at work on an album that will be played at low volume in P.F. Chang’s restaurants nationwide. “After taking some time off from recording, we’re psyched to be back in the studio laying down 10 new tracks to serve as background noise while customers scan their menus and make light conversation over lettuce wraps with coworkers or visiting parents,” said frontman Joel Madden, noting that the band was aiming for a solid 40-minute album that P. F. Chang’s managers...

Travis Barker spoke with Noisey:
It was strange because I was close enough to all this crazy shit, having a gun to my head while almost getting carjacked, being in a house that got shot up two days before my friend was killed. I was always close to danger. I had to really check myself, “Are you doing the right thing? What do you want to do with your life?” Walking away from a house as all my friends are outside shooting at a moving car and thinking, “Holy shit! We just got shot at and could’ve been killed!” Those things were just a confirmation that I wanted to play music and get the fuck out of there.

This week on Encore the pop-punk ladder explains to me what it means to be "posi." I learn something new about all these youngins every day. This week's topics include: Basketball is back, the Star Wars trailer was released and watched, some bands do "follow backs" on Twitter and that's kinda weird, music being listening to exclusively on YouTube, advice for someone wanting to be a music producer, Spotify vs Victory Records vs Streetlight Manifesto, Adele, Google Play Podcasts, the new Apple TV, and favorite singles so far in 2015. Please note: This is the last week you can get a t-shirt if you want one! So pick one up. You'll find show notes, ways to subscribe, and links to stream...
