Our interview with Kimbra can be found here, where she discusses her new record, The Golden Echo.
Thatís whatís exciting to me. When something goes from major to minor really quickly, or when it goes from feeling really happy and cathartic to being quite melancholy, itís all in the purpose of serving the message. Itís not just to be trippy. Itís to actually help tell the story and convey an emotion.

Since some of our readers jump at every opportunity to drag Kanye West's name through the mud, they wanted us to post TMZ's story about Kanye forcing a handicapped fan out of his wheelchair. Just like most of TMZ's stories, it was embellished and untrue. You can find a video of what really happened in the replies.

You can read Taylor Swift's Rolling Stone cover story, "The Reinvention of Taylor Swift."
Swift's last album, 2012's Red, straddled the line between country and pop. "But at a certain point," she says, "if you chase two rabbits, you lose them both." So this time, she set out to do full-on "blatant pop music." A casual fan won't notice much difference, but to Swift and her brand, it's a big step. She says she won't be going to country-awards shows or promoting the album on country radio. When she first turned in the record, she says the head of her label, Scott Borchetta, told her, "This is extraordinary Ė it's the best album you've ever done. Can you just give me three country songs?"

Tom Thacker (Sum 41, Gob), Anthony Bleed (Die Mannequin), and Darrin Pfeiffer (Goldfinger) recently joined vocalist Andrew Conroy to create an old-fashioned pop band called Rain City Rockers. We are premiering their debut album, Mayday. Sound interesting? Well, here's another kicker - it was recorded live in one take. Conroy's keen interest in 60s and 70s music definitely surfaces on the album, evident both vocally and musically. Check it in the replies. If you like what you hear, be sure to grab it on September 16th via Flashlight Music Group.

This week's episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast looks at the recent Apple event and the surprise release of U2's new album. Kind of weird that just a few years ago the industry was against free music and now it's a race to almost see who can do it 'best.' We talk a little about the announced devices and the demise of the iPod Classic. Then we dive into discussing Fall Out Boy's latest single, the new New Found Glory tracks, Yellowcard's new songs and if we should judge albums based on just a couple of songs or not, and then finish it off with a lot of praise for Have Mercy. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.

A festival in it's first year is always full of surprises, good and bad, and Float Fest, held outside of San Marcos, Texas was no exception. The inaugural event was preceded by permit issues and resident concerns before the music even started as it was held in a rural stretch of the Texas Hill Country on the San Marcos river. Float Fest was headlined by indie pop gods Grouplove, Houston legend Bun B, and the ever dreamy Portugal. The Man, and included numerous local support acts.
The small crowd ate up their opening song that consisted entirely of screaming the word WHISKEY over and over. I even got to watch a girl vomit from her constant jumping. The band itself is nothing but...
