On this week’s episode of Encore I am joined by special guest Jacob Tender. This week we discuss AbsolutePunk.net, SpinMedia, UnderTheGun and a lot of behind the scenes chaos that plagued the music web community over the past few years. Then we move into a discussion about creating things and the balance between hobbies, work, and everything between. We look at what it’s like to create things, when to know if they’ve failed, and why it is we both feel a need to create and put things out into the world. There’s also talk about the new MacBooks with Touchbar, some thoughts on AirPods, as well as collecting media and how we track what we listen to, read, and watch.
This week sees new releases from AFI, John Mayer, Foxygen, and As It Is. That AFI album continues to grow on me even if I find some of the lyrics (barking in the wrong key?) strange. If you hit read more you can see all the releases we have in our calendar for the week. Hit the quote bubble to access our forums and talk about what came out today, what albums you picked up, and to make mention of anything we may have missed.
Travis Barker was on “The Kevin & Bean Show” to talk about his Musink festival. He mentioned that Blink-182 have 13 songs recorded for the new deluxe version of California, and that they want to release the deluxe version now while the album is still doing well and not hold the songs until the end of 2018 which would have been the earliest they could release a new album. He also mentioned recording a new Goldfinger album with John Feldmann, so, that’s some news.
