Once a band are signed to a label, pumping out chart-topping albums and affiliated in any way with Pete Wentz, it's too late. As a fan seeking some semblance of scene cred, you would've needed to have known about that band years earlier, back when they were playing to six belligerent punks in partially burned-down arcades. Instead of putting yourself through all that, Alternative Press Magazine brings you the AP&R PODCAST--an hour-long exposure to buzzing unsigned bands who you can get on board with long before your friends (and more importantly: everyone else). AP web editor Tim Karan hosts the festivities with an almost unhealthy dose of self-reference and sarcasm, complete with tracks from bands you'll soon be hearing about everywhere, along with sage advice from AP&R bands who have gone onto big things. This show is your safeguard against ever being called a poseur. And that is worth its weight in downloads.

A Monthly Must-Have
I hate it when I download a Podcast that looks interesting, but find out it's a hours-worth of fluff ... but not this one! AP&R is awesome, especially how it's an extension of the unsigned band section in AP Mag. Tim Karan is great to listen to and the song samples from up-and-coming artists has me hooked.
As a subscriber to AP Mag, I would like to listen to every band in the AP&R section. The podcast allows me to listen to every one of those bands in one stop. And Tim Karan is funny!
I was excited when I found out AP was doing another podcast and more excited when I found out Tim Karan was doing it. I love reading his and everyone else at APs' blogs. The songs are great and it is a good way to discover music.
