The end of CMJ seems like the perfect excuse to bring back the Bored On Sunday column and discuss the best bands we've all discovered at music festivals. Despite most festivals having incredible lineups, with hundreds (if not thousands) of artists playing, there are always a few performances that stand out. They're often not the most popular shows, the most attended, or the most talked about, but they are what stand out to you and me... and what make the festival experience so memorable.

I spent the entire week roaming the streets of NYC, partying with fellow AP.net writers, and seeing band after band after band. I couldn't make a list of every artist I saw this past week, as is the...

BlakeForever Came Calling have a much-improved new album, and Pianos Become The Teeth changed in all the right ways on Keep You.
Zac DjamoosI've been listening to lots of Pianos Become The Teeth's Keep You lately, as well as revisiting Fireworks' Oh, Common Life and liking it more than I remembered. New Transit is surprisingly good also.

Death Cab for Cutie talked with Stereogum about preparing for their final album with Chris Walla.
When we finished the last record he had actually suggested that maybe we work with an outside person the next time, just as a way to shake things up. He’s produced all of our albums, so he’s always kind of had the right of first refusal anyway. When we got started on this record he just sort of resumed the producer role, but as we got a little further into the process he was like, “Well, maybe I’m not the best guy for this record,” and that was really fine. It wasn’t like we suddenly had the rug pulled out from under us or anything. We weren’t suddenly in a state of free fall.

The weeks just seem to be flying by now, and we're back with a brand new episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast. This week's topics include: Should bands break up and stop making music if they've stopped progressing as songwriters and musicians? How do we feel about scores on album reviews? Worth it? Pointless? Then we look at two big topics: The new Transit album and our thoughts on it (this was recorded the day before Thomas posted his review on the website), and Brand New and their recent demostravaganza. Do we think they'll put these songs on a new album? Would we be upset if they did? Wouldn't a 7" series release of the demos be awesome? We talk about all this and more! The episode can...

Tom DeLonge did an interview with Diffuser.
I think when I was envisioning what this was going to be, I look up to the greats like your Disneys and Marvels and DC Comics and all those kind of intellectual property rights kind of companies, but a lot of them were unrelatable to me because I wasn’t going to do a bunch of stuff about superheroes. I wanted to be more philosophical and cerebral in some ways. So, I got really hot on the idea of creating a reoccurring character around themes of human behavior or humanity. The first one, the ‘Love’ project, was all about human consciousness and connection and losing everybody around you to realize the importance of every relationship around...

Cyrus Bolooki of New Found Glory sat down with Vinyl Mag.
Lyrically, things have changed slightly. You know, it’s not 13 songs about girls, where most of our songs in the past have all been about relationships. There are a couple relationship songs on this record, but there’s also a lot of songs that deal with regular life questions, and a lot of things about how you overcome struggles; how do you get past things? Are you even living your life the way you want to? What are you going to do with your life? Are you okay with trying to push through anything to get what you want?
