Blink-182 are gearing up to release their first new music with Matt Skiba in late April. KROQ’s music director got to hear some of the new tunes and is saying good things. So, the hype begins.
“I think any fan of Blink-182 is going to be ecstatic when they hear the music. I really do! It sounds like Blink-182 but it sounds like Blink in 2016. Lyrically it’s clever.” Worden explains that of the songs she’s heard, it’s primarily Hoppus on vocals with Skiba adding harmonies. “I didn’t know what to expect.”
This goes right along with stuff I’ve been hearing as well — that it’s very Blink sounding but more rock tinged than atmospheric. I think I’m most looking forward to hearing Mark and Matt together, if that works, and Travis is as good as we know he is, I’m sold.

Jack Antonoff, of Bleachers, is writing a book called Record Store. The New York Times has an interview with Jack:
Mr. Antonoff, 31, explained in an interview that the project was based largely on his own youth as a voracious CD consumer in suburban New Jersey — far from the popular perception of a record-store patron as a crate-digging vinyl obsessive.
“It seems like the nerdy, record-collector type owns the conversation,” Mr. Antonoff said. “But that wasn’t my experience growing up, and it wasn’t the experience of a lot of people I know.”
“Record Store” will be “the opposite of an old, crotchety, ‘things-were-better,’ dusty book about vinyl,” he added.

Dan Ozzi, writing for Noisey, asks: is the album review dead?
We are living in that age Bangs never got to see. There are enough services competing to offer us streaming music—Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, Amazon Prime, Rhapsody, 8tracks, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp, to name a few (and that’s not even mentioning the illegal download market)—that it would take hundreds of thousands of years to listen to it all. So with every new album available at our fingertips completely for free at the instant of its release for our own personal judgment, you’ve got to wonder: Do we still need the album review?
