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...
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...
Just a friendly reminder to make sure you check us out on other social networks. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Last.fm, and Rdio. The AP.net staff can also be found elsewhere online -- this page has the goods. Show us some love.
Next Wednesday The Maine will be swinging by the site to chat with all of you fine folks. They'll be on the site at 7pm PST/10pm EST to talk about their new album, American Candy, their upcoming tour with Real Friends and Knuckle Puck, good days, bad days or whatever you feel like asking them. So be sure to pre-orderAmerican Candy so you have plenty of things to ask...or just some fun new tunes to jam.
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.
Update: This chat is now over. We'd like to thank the guys from Enter Shikari for stopping by and answering everyone's questions! - JD
In just a couple hours at 2pm/5pm EST, the guys from Enter Shikari will be chatting in this thread under the following usernames: RouES, ChrisES, EnterRob, and RoryES. You can ask them about their headlining tour, which is happening right now (dates in the replies), or perhaps you could ask them about their new album The Mindsweep. Or, maybe you could ask them what things they like to eat on tour in America.
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...
