Tom Alderson, drummer of Philadelphia, PA hardcore band Crosscheck, was badly injured Sunday night and is currently hospitalized. A GoFundMe page has been set up.
Our good friend, Tom Alderson, has experienced many heavy burdens recently, but more-so now than ever he needs our help. Sunday night, Tom suffered an incredible amount of physical injury and trauma to his head and other parts of his body. Currently hospitalized, he is going to be spending his 24th birthday laid up in a hospital room hooked to machines and barely being able to do much of anything for himself on his own. The injuries he has sustained are so severe, that they will be keeping him out of work for an undetermined...

Nina Corcoran wrote a great piece on Elliott Smith's self-titled album, which turned 20 this month, for Consequence of Sound. It's a fantastic read about the record, with interviews from many people involved with its release -- Mary Lou Lord, the founder of Kill Rock Stars, the director of Heaven Adores You, and Heatmiser.
His music is personal, and Elliott Smith capitalizes on that more than any other album in his discography. Thatís what Smithís self-titled album was when it was released in 1995, and thatís what it is 20 years later: an album to the listener, for the listener, from someone willing to listen. Elliott Smith is the secret you came across and cling to your heart,...

Penny Marchand, Davey Havok's mother, writes about the early days of AFI:
I really donít know. I can tell you what I do know thoughÖ He started in on rock and roll early. He was five years old when he asked for the AC/DC album Back in Black. At the time I was pretty naive about hard rock or punk rock and when I heard the record I was shocked. Why would my sweet child want to listen to this kind of musicÖ the lyrics clearly suggested killing your mother. Of course they didnít suggest thatÖ but thatís what it sounded like to me. What happened to those days of Mr. Moon? I didnít get itÖ and that was pretty much the beginning of not getting it for quite a long time.

We recently spoke with Joywave about their debut album How Do You Feel Now? Check it out here.
What gets sent to radio and whatís decided on as a single seems really arbitrary. We didnít make the record trying to make any singles. There was no song where we were like, all right, this one has to be this certain way, outside of ďDestruction.Ē The spots that we made quote-unquote ďcatchyĒ in that song are a joke. Itís tongue in cheek.

O'Brother will be releasing new music in early 2016.
Yeah, we just finished up the new record not too long ago actually. In fact, itís being mixed right now. Musically, itís substantially more minimalistic than our last two records. It felt good to strip things down a little bit. Donít get me wrong, itís still heavy and orchestral like OíBrother has always been, but itís also different for us. I think every song has a section where only one of us is playing, so thatís pretty cool, and Iím sure the finished product will sound cool too. Right now weíre looking at a release sometime early next year.
