In this week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast, Thomas tries to coin the phrase "Chopper" for a song that is a "chart topper." I'm not sure how well this is going to work out -- I say it gets chopped. This week's topics include: The glaring lack of women in this week's Skate and Surf lineup, Bayside's song release about shock-rock bands and subsequent blog post about their own lyrics, Simple Mind covering all of Brand New's The Devil and God..., and Nate Ruess' new song and roll out. We end with some recommendations and a little after show talk about advice for getting into the music industry. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

Want to make sure you never miss...

Pretty big win for Net Neutrality today.
On February 26, the FCC approved new, stronger network neutrality rules that regulate internet access like a public utility. Network neutrality supporters hailed the proposal. But Republicans in Congress say that it will lead to excessive regulation of the internet. They're working on legislation that would partially reverse the rules.

Some of you reading may like the band Fire and Ice, and some of you may want to know that they recently posted a variety of homophobic tweets and basically said they don't care if anyone is offended. I asked the label why they'd keep a band like this on their roster and didn't hear back. I think everyone can make their own decisions about what music they listen to and what they can put up with from artists ... but for me, this is one of the lines that renders a band unlistenable in my book.

Buffalo's Del Paxton is the latest band to sign to Topshelf Records' incredible lineup and we have a new song from the band's upcoming 7" split with Gulfer. Del Paxton's brand of emo/indie/you name it is infectious as it is heavy-hitting. But don't take my word for it, check out the band's killer new track, "Bad Batch," in the replies and then pre-order the split (in stores 4/7) from Topshelf.

This summer, the music industry will adopt a global release day of Fridays. Right now, as many of us know, Tuesdays are album release days for the United States, while the United Kingdom uses Mondays and many other countries around the world use Fridays. This new means that artists will be able to release new music on one day, everywhere.
The change comes after global record labels association IFPI announced today that Friday will be deemed as release day in all key countries round the world, following consultation with indie and major labels, artist representative organisations and music retailers.

The move means that artists will be able to instantly release their music on the...

I defy anyone to have their scrotum grabbed and not lash out instinctively...

Obviously violence is never the answer and I'm very unhappy personally with how I acted. I should have left the crowd and headed back to stage immediately when this started happening but due to the density of the crowd and the intensity of the situation things played out differently, I'm only human.

Soft Sleep, featuring members of The Lonely Forest and Death Cab For Cutie, will soon be releasing their first vinyl EP. Pre-orders are now up and more information can be found below.
As Summer 2014 ended, Anacortes, WA indie-rockers, The Lonely Forest, played their final show. This farewell concert at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music Festival marked the theoretical end of The Lonely Forest. Guitarist, Tony Ruland, did not sit idly by. After sorting through a pile of micro cassette recordings he’d made over the last handful of years, Tony decided it was finally time to do something with them. He needed help, so he called up Erik Walters (Silver Torches) and Kyle Holland (Cumulus), and thus,...
