Too Long; Do Read is back, and our June feature highlights Make Do and Mend and its phenomenal new album, Everything You Ever Loved. Check out No Place Feels Like Home Anymore, the story of how life on the road helped Make Do and Mend write its best record yet, where vocalist James Carroll opens up about his struggles with heavy touring, the band's shift in sound, and what it's been like working with Rise Records. We've got some songs for you to stream in the article while you read.
Today, I could not be any more excited to bring you guys a stream of one of the very best records of 2012. Make Do and Mend has come a long way since 2010's End Measured Mile, and the release of Everything You Ever Loved provides validation that the band's struggles and triumphs have resulted in something fantastic. The album ranges from the aggression of MDAM's earlier music to more Jimmy Eat World and Foo Fighters-influenced sounds, as Drew noted in his great 9.5/10 review, and ultimately this is an album you don't want to miss out on. So head to their AP.net Profile to stream the whole record, and be sure to check back tomorrow or Wednesday for our Too Long; Do Read feature on the band.

We haven't had one of Eda's awesome Bored On Sunday discussions in a while, so I figured I'd whip one up for a discussion topic on a slow-moving Sunday. My question today is, which bands that we cover on AP.net should be on the radio today? Although it seems like a distant past, it wasn't all that long ago that pop-punk bands like All Time Low, Yellowcard, Fall Out Boy and many others graced the airwaves and MTV (when MTV played music videos). I've outlined a few songs that have come out recently that I think would have been on the radio back when these types of bands were more common. Take to the replies to discuss which songs and bands you think should be on regular rotation.
