Peter Robinson, writing for Noisey, about ghostwriting:
But popís move towards a more rockist interpretation of credibility isnít open for debate: itís already happened, and you can understand why some artists are keen not to credit writers, or to insist that they are credited even if their sole contribution was managing to record their vocal while not falling over.
Wave. We're back from our one week break and are immediately talking about Star Wars. It's exactly what you would expect from a podcast named AbsolutePunk, right? This week we look at how the whole Pure Noise Records/JJR situation impacted being able to listen to Four Year Strong's latest album, why A Wilhelm Scream isn't as crazy big and popular as they should be, the reasoning behind labels streaming albums a week or so early, our favorite b-sides, the upcoming Motion City Soundtrack album and our fears surrounding it, if there's a song of the summer, Frank Turner's new one, the new Better Off songs, and some good old fashioned nostalgia. We missed podcasting and hope you enjoy this...

We've been doing this band for 13, 14 whatever years. I think that challenging ourselves to do new things is important. It's hard to find new things sometimes, you know? People said this tour was going to be polarizing, but we're doing bigger numbers than we've done before, you know? I think it's probably tapping into different kids or something.

Another "Maybe" may never present itself, but Jepsen doesn't mind. Meeting expectations is no longer on her agenda. " 'Call Me Maybe' was such a gift, but I don't need that to happen again," she says. "I wanted to be brave and [record] music that was really me rather than just putting out what I thought would sell. I would've regretted more not doing what I did -- *making a passion project come to life."

Earlier this morning ROMP had posted a message on Facebook stating that they had asked their drummer to leave the band due to some allegations made against him. That post was then deleted when, apparently, one of the drummer's parents threatened legal action against the band. Bad Timing Records will be donating all proceeds from the band's latest EP to RAINN for the rest of the year.
There are 72,000 newly-diagnosed adolescent and young adult patients each year in the population that ranges from 15 to 39. While many consider these to be the most formative years of a personís life, this population suffers a well-documented deficit in research and attention from the cancer community. This shortfall has lead to a 30-year stagnation in the improvement of AYA survival rates compared to all other age demographics.
What we want to do is raise a dollar for every one of the 72,000 adolescents and young adults that will be diagnosed this year.
