For today's "countdown" feature, I thought that we could maybe get a good discussion going about our favorite hidden gems in music. I posted a list of some of my favorites a while back in my blog, but I never shared them here. Here are 5 things I find cool about music. What are some of yours?
The Countdown1) The last line from The Format's Interventions & Lullabies is "we all fall down" and the first line to Dog Problems is "ashes to ashes."

The music industry's most loved/most hated (depending on who you ask) week of the year, SXSW, is here once again! We'll have three staffers down there this year (Eda, Ryan and I) seeing as many bands, parties and free taco-filled events as possible. Daily updates from the three of us each morning will be posted on the home page, and we will also be updating the AP.net live show twitter (@apnetatshow). You can also follow each of us individually on twitter to see what bands and parties we're at at any given moment (@paultao, @alueda, @ryangardnerc). If you're down in Austin for the madness, feel free to say hi to any of us that you run into on the streets! Most of us get in tomorrow...

This week on the Self Promotion Forum, one can find the excellent Open To Fire. The five piece, hailing from Birmingham, UK, play punk tinged indie rock which should be popular among fans of The Gaslight Anthem. Their recent self titled EP is basically five tracks of catchy, all moods suited rock and what's more, it's free on their Bandcamp. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.
