Today we are streaming the track "Red Lights" from The Swellers recent 7" release Vehicle City Blues. Sure, we know the vinyl was released already, but who doesn't mind a little bit of The Swellers during their day? The band has a couple more weeks left of tour before they head back into the studio to record a new album. Head to the band's AP.net profile and leave your thoughts in the replies.

Yesterday I lamented that maybe re-thinking how we support the music we love wasn't such a bad idea. I heard a lot of responses throughout the day; many from bands (one of the more interesting to me was the idea of gift cards for common places a band would visit on tour). With that, Jonathan Diener from The Swellers, was so inspired by the topic and ensuing discussion - that he wrote up a guest blog in response to my post.
