This week's episode of Encore has us looking at a variety of interesting, and diverse, topics. We talk a little about the next Star Wars being pushed back, a little about Thomas's collection of Funko collectables, and a little about Thomas wanting to buy an iPad Pro. We also discover that Thomas has had the wrong sequencing in his iTunes for Everything in Transit for almost a decade now. He discovers this live on the podcast. We tackle a variety of user questions related to Panic! at the Disco's new album, the TV show "Making a Murderer," and if we prefer soft or energetic album closers. We also talk some more about Brian Fallon and his upcoming album since Thomas caught him live...

Mike Herrera had former founding member of MxPx, Andy Husted, on his podcast.
I ran into Andy on New Year's Eve as I was out with a group whooping it up on and he was doing the same. So we did some of that together. As we got to talking about our crazy world and life I invited him on the podcast. The next day, not too early we sat down at the studio and got to talking over a few beers. We talk about the present and the past. Some good stories about old MXPX recording sessions and our first tour van that would barely get us to gigs. We finally abandoned it after the brakes went out on our way home from a show. We had to down shift, E-brake it and coast through town. We made it without a...

Julien Baker wrote about Daughter's wonderful new album, Not To Disappear, on The Talkhouse.
Not to Disappear not only functions as catharsis for its creators, but as a heartbreakingly powerful experience for the listener, unrivaled in its genuineness.

During an interview with KROQ, Travis Barker talked about the new Blink-182 album, and looking at a summertime release window.
"Just having someone like Matt (Skiba) who’s in the studio everyday is great. You got to show up, that’s the first part. It’s just exciting. It’s a new chapter and we’re not striving for mediocrity, we’re looking to kill it. We’re gonna make a great album.

I think summertime [for the release]. There’s tentatively some plans to play shows during summer. Everything will come together and be revealed in due time. It’s gonna be great.”

Edit: More of the interview can be found here.

Apple have posted up a behind the scenes looking at the recording of Adele's "Hello" with Logic Pro X.
I have SoundShifter on the piano to pitch it down a half step. We wrote the song higher and changed the key, but I liked the piano sound and didn’t want to replay it. I sampled my Roland TR-808 kick drum into the EXS24 and used that in the chorus to double the bass. Valhalla’s VintageVerb is on the guitar single-note stuff. I filtered the drums with the Logic AutoFilter. I used SPL Transient Designer to shorten the length and add attack on those drums. And there’s a little bit of Sylenth1 playing a sine-wave, organ-like pad under the chorus.

Bandcamp has introduced "exclusive" players for their platform. Look out Soundcloud.
Attention music journalists, publicists, and artists who like the idea of a review or feature driving direct sales: you can now create exclusive embeds on Bandcamp! A site like Pitchfork, Fader or Stereogum can use an exclusive embed to offer its readers a first listen of an album or track, complete with a link back to Bandcamp to pre-order or purchase. Exclusive embeds can stream tracks that you aren’t streaming from your public album page, they can be restricted to one or more sites you specify, and, like other Bandcamp embedded players, they can be customized for a specific size/layout.

Apple has released a new app called "Musical Memos."
Music Memos is the easiest way for songwriters to capture and organize new musical ideas. Use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to record acoustic guitar, piano, voice, or any musical instrument as high-quality, uncompressed audio. Then name, tag and rate your ideas to start building a library of all your favorite new song parts and riffs. Music Memos automatically detects your tempo, rhythmic feel and chords and lets you instantly hear your musical idea accompanied by a rhythm section with realistic drums and bass. View the chords you’ve played, add comments and lyrics, or share your recordings with friends or directly to Apple Music...

Twenty One Pilots are featured in another Rolling Stones article. One of the items discussed is the idea of adding additional "members" on tour.
"We come from a sensory-overload culture, and so we wonder if one guy on drums and one guy dancing around is enough," says Joseph. "Adding guys was something we always were curious about. We decided for this run specifically to stay a two-piece. In the future, we definitely could add members. When Josh and I play at the same time, I don’t want to be too dramatic, but something magical happens. You’re in sync with somebody. To add people to that would only make that feeling even more potent."

That doesn't mean these additional musicians...
