I know a lot of our users enjoy the ambient noise and slow build-up from bands like Moving Mountains and The Appleseed Cast. Which is why I think our premiere of Over The Ocean's new song, "In This Darkness," will be a success here. You can stream it in the replies or at the band's AP.net profile. The song is off the band's new album, Be Given To The Soil, which will be available digitally on April 30th and can be ordered on vinyl now.

Bassist Erik Henning has left Polar Bear Club.
Hi people. We wanted to throw this out there just to let everyone know that our boy and bass man Goose (Erik Henning) has left PBC. I don’t want to speak for him too much but simply put, he was ready to move on to other things in life and we’re happy for him. We truly wish him the best and if you like, you can too over @American_Goose. If you’ve seen us on our current tour you may have noticed a very tall man-boy holding what looks like a toy bass in his gargantuan arms. That’s Ty Smith. He’s an old friend of ours and he’ll be holding down the bass duties for us. Everything else is good in PBC world. This tour with Bad Religion and The...

Singer-songwriter Grey Gordon has signed to No Sleep Records. He will release his third EP, Still At Home Here, on May 28th, which you can pre-order here or here. Listen to "500 Miles" from the EP here.
“Truthfully, I couldn't be more shocked when Chris approached me about signing to No Sleep, but I'm obviously beyond ecstatic to be putting out this upcoming EP with them,” says Gordon. “It's an incredible honor to get to be involved in something I've appreciated as an onlooker for the last few years. No Sleep is doing incredible things, and I honestly could not be more excited to be working with them, hopefully well into the future.”

Welcome to My Back Pages, a collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike, most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

This week we are revisiting a lifelong favorite of both of ours: R.E.M.'s 1992 classic Automatic for the...
