Created by a high school kid armed with computer know-how and a love for Blink-182 and MxPx, AbsolutePunk.net began as a place for like-minded music fans to gather, talk about and introduce each other to new music. Since it began 11 years ago, AbsolutePunk.net is home to thousands of album reviews, forum threads, music exclusives, artist interviews and most importantly, excited music fans. Today, we’re pleased to highlight AbsolutePunk as an Influencer on Rdio.
Why is AbsolutePunk worthy of your Follow? Because they’ll make sure your Recent Activity feed will be a steady stream of lesser-known, just-below-the-radar, newly-discovered bands from off the beaten path.
Here’s a sample of what you might expect to cross your radar—these are the AP.net staff and members’ five favorite albums from the past six months:
- The Gaslight Anthem, American Slang
- Young the Giant, Young the Giant
- Social Distortion, Hard Times And Nursery Rhymes
- Hellogoodbye, Would It Kill You?
- Iron and Wine, Kiss Each Other Clean
Also not to be overlooked are AbsolutePunk’s curated (and collaborative) Playlists—with names like We Wanna Be Pitchfork, Whisper Quiet, and Harder, Harder…, there’s bound to be something that you’ll love in their mix.
