It's chill af in NYC today. Literally. Like I'm having a hard time getting out of bed because I like my feet not being popsicles. I am writing this whilst I am still in bed. That said, the chill means that all the glorious fall albums are under way and CMJ is quickly approaching. I've also been on a steady streak of shows lately, which I will get up ASAP for you to see and be jealous of me. I'm also working to backdate all the show notes I kept saying I was upping and then rage quit because as you can see below these posts are intense as hell, you guys. OH WELL IT'S WORTH IT BECAUSE I LOVE DOING THIS!

Enjoy this weeks jams and be sure to grab the Spotify playlist below if you want to keep this mix around. As always, I'd love to hear from you so feel free to drop me a tweet and let me know what you thought of this week's show.

[News] Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids) Launches Kickstarter Project To Fund Solo Album

Get Up Kids frontman Matt Pryor has announced that he is working on a solo album, titled May Day. The name of the album comes from Matt's idea of writing, recording, and completing any work on the album all during the month of May. May Day will be a follow up to his 2008 release Confidence Man and should be dropping later this year.

Pryor is looking to go independent with May Day and thus taking to Kickstarter to raise funds for the album. Staying true to the theme of the album, Pryor is hoping to raise the funds for the album by May 31st.

Have a look at the video detailing the Kickstarter project after the jump.
