We've made it to 50 episodes of the AbsolutePunk Podcast! Just want to take a moment to thank Drew Beringer, Thomas Nassiff, and all the guests we've had on the first fifty episodes of this thing. Been a pretty wild ride and I think these past 15 or so have been where we really are hitting our stride. Everything seems to flow really well and each week of recording has been a whole lot of fun. This week we look at the tech issues AP.net has faced (and my potential liver failure as a result), the possibility of Fall Out Boy releasing a new single and if it's even possible for big bands to keep secrets, and then we dive into the main event: fall albums. We talk about what makes an album...

Steven Hyden pens an interesting look at Ryan Adams:
If anything, Ryan Adams disproves this thesis. This is Adams in buckle-down-and-study mode, and the methodology didn’t produce a masterpiece; it resulted in another Ryan Adams album, though that ought to be enough. In my 2011 interview, Adams complained about how his latest work is constantly dismissed in comparison to his old work, even when that old work was itself dismissed in its time: “I made Love Is Hell, and people panned it really unnecessarily; there was harshness around it. Then, only a little bit of time passed, and people would fucking bring that record up as something I wasn’t doing, which is why my current records were...

US Magazine is reporting that Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy and his wife, Elisa Yao, will soon be welcoming their first child into the world. I've got a crazy hunch the kid will cry in perfect pitch.
The 30-year-old revealed that he's been keeping the pregnancy under wraps, and he will become a first-time dad at the end of October.

Ben Sisario, writing for the New York Times, looks at how Rdio will be moving to a free model.
Rdio's free version will be introduced in 20 countries on Thursday. In the United States, its ads will be sold by Cumulus, which operates more than 450 radio stations and an advertising sales staff of about 1,600 people. Eventually, the Cumulus partnership will allow Rdio to use content from Cumulus’s stations and syndication network.

Mike Ness mentioned in a recent interview that Social Distortion has about half of their new record written.
“It’s a very strange phenomenon,” Ness said. “Most bands that have been around 35 years, their heyday was 35 years ago and they’re still trying to live off that. For us, it was the opposite. Back then we were struggling, guys in a van going across the country broke. It just kind of evolves and progresses, and we’re really fortunate that way.”

Brendan Kelly's written a new blog addressing stolen photos, victim shaming, and a whole lot more.
So, yeah. I'm upset at the way that the current spate of "hacked celebrity nudes" has created a noxious victim blaming firestorm here on the internet, stemming mostly from everyone wanting to see Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton naked, feeling guilty, and then shifting that guilt onto those girls as to feel a little bit better about looking at their intimate photos. Pretty lame, even for you, Millhouse.

It's a beautiful day here in Toronto today, and naturally, my playlist is full of upbeat and feel good songs. The Castle Walls' latest songs have made their way onto said playlist, one of them being "Top Of The Morning" for which we're premiering a video (below) today. The brother and sister duo draw inspiration from indie pop, folk rock, and electronic music, creating a new youthful and lively sound. Head to the replies to get a glimpse of what's to come from this remarkable act.

Deadmau5 is trying to trademark his mouse-ear-mask-helmet thing in the US -- apparently Disney isn't too happy with that.
In the docs, Disney states its ears have been a thing for more than 60 years, and says granting Deadmau5 the trademark would damage its business in the U.S. and around the world.
