Scientists have created a living cell with DNA containing more than just the familiar A, T, C, and G units.
Hailed as a breakthrough by other scientists, the work is a step towards the synthesis of cells able to churn out drugs and other useful molecules. It also raises the possibility that cells could one day be engineered without any of the four DNA bases used by all organisms on Earth. "What we have now is a living cell that literally stores increased genetic information," says Floyd Romesberg, a chemical biologist at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, who led the 15-year effort.

Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne has spoken, in length, with Rolling Stone. And yes, he addresses the claims made by former drummer Kliph Scurlock.

I would say that I'm very sorry, to anybody that is following my Instagram or my Twitter, if I offended anybody of any religion, any race, any belief system. I would say you shouldn't follow my tweets; you shouldn't even probably want to be a Flaming Lips fan because we don't really have any agenda. We go about doing things through our imagination. And I would say that if we wrongly stepped on anybody's sacredness, then we're sorry about that. That was never our intention.

Communities Digital News conducted a great interview with Bill Stevenson. He mentions that the Descendents are working on a new album and that it's a priority for the band in the next few months. There's currently no plans for any new ALL recordings though.
We started on it. We’re not really far into it, but we’re making it a priority to kind of focus on it in the coming months.

Tom Delonge has posted some concept art for the new Angels and Airwaves album on Instagram.
It’s hard to describe the depth and the scope of what this next project is. It has been so much work over the past 4 years that there is no way I can put it into just a couple sentences. All I can say is @angelsandairwaves represents not a few, but a great field of talented artists, many that are behind the scenes that the band unknowingly and unrightfully gets credit for. We are not just a band, but an art project. Halloween will be a special day, because it will symbolize something much bigger than just the album… It’s the start of a large and ambitious art piece… #POET, #DreamWalker,...

Glasgow based trio PAWS have issued a statement about their run in with Team Morrissey at The Constellation Room in California, where the band's show was canceled without notice to "accommodate" Morrissey's show taking place on a different stage at the same venue.
After this, as more sites started to pick up on it, we got more frantic calls from the promoter for the Morrissey show, telling us that his representatives had flipped and insisted the whole thing was not the actions of Morrissey himself, but that of his own security, and that we 'need to apologise' and set this straight. We felt that, regardless of who had actually said this, this was still done by someone in the Morrissey...

I decided to get a little nostalgic with this week's AbsolutePlaylist by looking at some of my favourite Canadian pop-punk/punk tracks from the 2000s. Since I was born in 1990 that's the first decade I really started paying attention to music and while most of those bands aren't doing stuff in 2014 I know I'll never totally forget about them. Check out my picks in the replies and feel free to chime in with your favourite songs too.

Tomorrow (May 10th), Weezer's debut album will turn 20 years old. In the replies, you can check out an essay I wrote about the album and why it was so successful and remains an integral part of rock and roll today (Blake will have a Weezer-centric playlist on the site this upcoming Monday). It's hard to believe that I was standing in a Sam Goody 20 years ago with 15 bucks looking to purchase "The Blue Album."
That's why "The Blue Album" has lasted twenty years - it's appealed to people in all walks of life. It's why fans like me wore an ungodly amount of cardigans in high school and college. It's the reason why I'm writing about music as passionately as I do (as well why I listened to...

This week on the AbsolutePunk.net Podcast, Zack and I sat down with Nate Dorough from Fusion Shows to talk some insider baseball about putting on shows, booking festivals, a whole lot of Brand New stuff (weird how many of my conversations somehow come back to this), and why Fusion Shows doesn't charge any services fees on tickets for their shows. We also talk a lot about Bled Fest, which is coming up in Michigan on May 24th. The episode can be streamed and/or downloaded in the replies.

Billboard has "ten new school pop-punk bands you need to know about" -- because of course they do.
You Blew It! are an intriguing pick, as they combine elements of the so-called "Emo Revival" to go along with pop-punk. This means they're cleverer with their guitars than your typical punk crew and on this year's fantastic "Keep Doing What You're Doing" album, they use the soft-to-loud dynamic for maximum emotional impact. To sweeten the deal, they're signed to Top Shelf Records, home of recent buzzy emo bands like A Great Big Pile of Leaves and (deep breath) The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die and come from Florida, home state of pop-punk forefathers like New...

Apple is reportedly in talks to buy Beats Audio. Crappy software, crappy headphones. Hope this is for more than just the IP.
Apple is reportedly in the process of buying Beats for $3.2 billion, according to a new report from The Financial Times. The deal includes both the streaming music service, as well as the company that produces headphones and speakers. The move, which would be Apple’s largest acquisition, could be announced as soon as next week, the paper says.

Am I the only person in the world that remembers the pop-punk band Larger Than Life? I was going through some old files on my computer and came across their EP If Tomorrow Never Came -- with the "resurgence" in pop-punk I feel like I should randomly submit bands that flew way under the radar before to Tumblr blogs and see if I can't get them some buzz. These guys, Unsung Zeros, The Goodwill ... someone would bite, right? Anyway, I tossed If Tomorrow Never Came up on SoundCloud and you can stream it in the replies.
