Laura Jane Grace, of Against Me!, writing for Noisey:
I made three laps around the world last year and every single airport interaction always included a "sir" addressed to me. Checking in, security, passport control, boarding, de-boarding, getting a cab, checking into the hotel, checking out of the hotel, the security guard at the club, some bartender, a waitress, some drunk dickhead telling me I look like Mark Wahlberg in Rock Star instead of a woman, another bartender, another taxi, and then do it all again the next day. Shoot me in the fucking head.

Twitter released their new app Periscope this week. It's an app that allows you to create livestreams from your phone and anyone can join in and watch. I could see this being a tool for bands to use to livestream from the studio, throwing makeshift AMAs, or playing random acoustic performances for fans. The app is now available in the app store. Casey Newton over at The Verge talks more about the app for those curious:
Periscope has been in development for more than a year, and the app arrives showing nice attention to detail. You sign in with Twitter, and the first thing you see is a list of streams that are currently live. Below it, you’ll see a list of recent streams. Not all can be...

When The Jazz June resurfaced in 2014, we tacked them on to the growing list of late-90's emo bands who were making a come back. However, the band didn't just get together for a handful of shows; they released an entire album, After the Earthquake.

Before officially recording the album, The Jazz June threw down a handful of songs at The Headroom in Philly. The songs weren't released to the public with the exception of one track which was featured on a split with Dikembe.

Today in the replies we're streaming a track from this session, an acoustic version of "Edge of Space", a song that was later re-recorded and featured on After the Earthquake. "Edge of Space" was mixed by Sean...

Lights sat down with Purevolume to do a Q&A.
I was in early labor while doing the vocals for a song called “Muscle Memory.” I had her early the next morning. I was back in the studio a few days later. It was this weird thing, but it felt good to have something going through my head besides I’m not feeling great right now. I was able to sit down and work on stuff that I wanted to do. I guess that shows that you really like your job then.

As I wrote about last week, we're taking this week off of the AP.net podcast because I'm out of town. We'll be back on our regular schedule next week. I figured this would be a good time to highlight some of my favorite episodes we've recorded so far. If you haven't given the podcast a try yet, maybe this week's a good week to catch up on a few episodes. As always, we're looking to hear from the listeners about new topic ideas, suggestions, and other questions you'd like for us to cover. Please leave those in the comments or Tweet at us with the #askAP hashtag. We've got a lot planned for the podcast over the rest of the year, thanks to everyone that listens.

Apple and Beats are pushing ahead with a streaming service that would aim to take on the likes of Spotify and Rdio. Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails is said to be playing a major role in the new venture.
The new music app, which is a collaborative effort between Mr. Reznor and other Apple and Beats employees, including Jimmy Iovine — who founded Beats with the hip-hop star Dr. Dre — will feature the streaming music service with many of the same characteristics as the Beats Music streaming service, one Apple employee said. Those may include curated playlists and a more vivid visual appeal, while conforming to Apple’s sleek and minimal design aesthetic, one person said. The name Beats...
