On Wednesdays this year, we're going to start highlighting a particular band or album we think you should check out. Today I've chosen a release that has been some four years in the making. It's the long rumored Person L / Weatherbox split that was originally supposed to come out in 2008. It is now available for pre-order here. I recommend you check it out!
A1: Person L - OK (Listen)
A2: Person L - Winter Clothes
B1: Weatherbox - Kickflips For Weeks
B2: Weatherbox - Two Seductresses

This past Sunday, I sat down with Max Bemis (Say Anything), Kenny Vasoli (The Starting Line/Person L) and Chris Conley (Saves the Day) to discuss the current state of the music industry and life after being a part of a major label. Head here to read the hour long discussion, and hit the replies with your thoughts. Where do we stand? What do bands have to do to succeed? Is this all forcing creativity and weeding out bad personal investments in bands that will just break-up in a year anyway? Is the idea of the rockstar dead among the underground, or is the underground the new bohemian rockstar? Will the majors eventually fold, and there will be a level playing field amongst any and all...
