BlakeBad Suns' debut album Language + Perspective is what I always wanted The 1975 to be, and I've also been jamming The Boys of Summer's first album What It's All About for some very pleasing pop-punk.

Show ReviewsDiarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and The Midgetmen - Austin, Texas (Caitlin DeWeese)
Caitlin DeWeese on 06/28/14 - 03:10 PM
Austin, Texas has been on overload with killer shows this week, but Diarrhea Planet, Lee Bains and The Glory Fires, and local heroes The Midgetmen played a killer set to a packed house at Red 7 on June 27th. The venue was feeling hellishly hot, and most of the audience was soaked in sweat most likely not theirs, but no one seemed to give a crap. Hit the replies to read my full review of the show, as well as a photo gallery.
It’s hard not to wail when your band features four guitarists, a lone bassist, and a bad-ass drummer. Diarrhea Planet’s music falls somewhere between the wildness of older The Black Lips and classic Nashville Southern rock.

Hidden Hospitals are looking to fund their first full-length on Kickstarter.
Our next goal is to produce our first full length record. We've spent the past year holed up in Chicago, writing, crafting and whittling down a collection of songs that we feel is the first full realization of why we started this band. As you might assume, our biggest endeavor to date also comes with the biggest financial constraint. We refuse to sacrifice this dream because of budget, so we are turning to you - our supporters - to help us get to the finish line. Importantly, we aren't looking for donations, we want to give you exclusive access and rewards so you can own a piece of this process and be a...

David Greenwald, writing for The Oregonian:
There will be no blurred lines this summer. After a year in pop that prided itself on reckless masculinity, Robin Thicke is pleading for his estranged wife's return and the rest of the pop world seems to have learned a lesson from the firestorm of critique his "Blurred Lines" caused. From the charts to the club, 2014's male-fronted tracks are hands-free affairs that eye the altar, not the bedroom.

Recently, Derrick from Sainthood Reps lost his father Gary to lung cancer. For the next week, Youth Conspiracy Records has announced that 100% of the proceeds from all sales of their Monoculture LP will go to the American Cancer Society in their ongoing fight to cure this life-stealing disease. In addition, YCR is auctioning off a test pressing of Monoculture on eBay. Limited to just five copies, this is the rarest Sainthood Reps record in existence -- all proceeds after eBay fees will go directly to the American Cancer Society.

Musicians are playing a song all day, every day, as part of the Kjartansson exhibit.
As part of the New Museum's solo exhibition devoted to the Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson, a group of 15 musicians have been playing a single song all day, every day the museum is open. When the gig ends along with the show at the end of the month, they estimate it will have been performed roughly 6,000 times, for 308 hours, and with the help of several dozen gallons of beer.

P.O.S. has returned from his kidney transplant and will soon be playing shows again. Welcome back Stef.
He returns to the stage with his Doomtree crew Saturday at Bayfront Festival Park in Duluth on a now-annual hip-hop-meets-hippie-folk bill with Trampled by Turtles, an intrastate jaunt that also includes a warm-up gig Friday in Moorhead, Minn. He already delivered what he called a “tester” performance with Doomtree two weekends ago at the Green Line grand opening party in St. Paul, and he said it went well.

One of the highlights of my week has become getting to talk with my two friends Thomas and Drew on our weekly podcast. Sometimes sitting down to edit the thing makes my eyes feel like rubber ... but it's all about powering through. This week's topics include: The Gaslight Anthem's two new songs and how we feel about having to post about "leaked" songs from bands we like, The Swellers saying goodbye and why they never seemed to break out the way we all expected, the disappearance of music videos, and personal space and touching musicians while they play. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded below.
