Just a reminder to all bands and industry folk - we're getting closer to launching our EOTY feature and we're still continuing to build up our "end of the year" database, as we've done each year, and we want your lists! If you're in a band, work for a label, or are involved in the industry - we want to feature your favorite albums of the year in our end of the year brouhaha. We've made it super simple again this year: just email us your lists here and make sure you make it clear who the list is for (ie: if you're in a band - is it a band list, or is it an individual band member list?). We'll compile everything together, and post it all around the new year.

Please note: This...

Earlier this week, Jason, Thomas, and I (along with various other people) were tweeting back and forth about the potential of a vinyl repress for Brand New's Deja Entendu. The conversation eventually evolved into a discussion of what vinyl records we covet and spawned the idea of this week's discussion thread. So vinyl lovers, what is your holy grail? What's a repressing you'd kill for or how much would you pay for an original pressing? What albums do you wish were actually pressed on vinyl (Cartel's Chroma was a popular answer on Twitter)? Let's get weird.

I'm really excited to announce that my good friend Scott Weber is coming back to AbsolutePunk.net to revive his role as an album reviewer. Scott was a prominent reviewer for the site in the mid-00s, with his last review dating back to fall 2006. Since then he's been the sports forum moderator, but recently got the itch to review once again. He'll be covering more of the punk rock genre on the site, so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, welcome Scott back to the site and check the replies for more fun facts about him!

You can read our interview with Stephen Kellogg & The Sixers here.
From The InterviewTotally. There’s very little that I make up, not everything I write is autobiographical, but so much of it is me and the people around me. And I think…I dunno, if my first record that came out years ago on Universal had been a big hit, I don’t know if I would’ve written all the things that I’m glad I wrote. When you’ve felt the elations and disappointments of what it means to go through life without major bullets, just things that happen to everybody, you really start to appreciate the little victories and you start to understand that the sadness is a part of it, and so much of that is what our...

I just got done reading a really great article by Pitchfork columnist Andrew Nosnitsky here. In Nosnitsky's column, he focuses his examples of "classic" albums around the genre of hip-hop and the critical acclaim of Kendrick Lamar's new album good kid, m.A.A.d city. He makes a a lot of valued points on how critics will deem an album a classic with only a few weeks to a month of listening behind it. Where's the time? Where's the album's retrospect in history? For that matter, he also points out the difference in an artist going into the studio to write an album with no real intentions versus the tunnel-vision of making an album for the purpose of having a legacy.

So what makes an album a...
