Here's your question and answer of the week from the Punknews Formspring:
Of course your day wouldn't be complete without knowing every inane detail of your humble editors' lives. Follow @aubinpaul, @adamwhite, @justinaugust, @brian_shultz, @dante3000, @ameliaaacline, @kiraface, @mcflynnthm, @kidecono, @wackymondo, and @BrittStrummer's every move at Twitter.
Q: What is your reaction to bands that make records which seem like a very sudden departure/expansion on their old sound? (I'm thinking things like Brand New's "Deja Entendu," Hostage Calm's Self Titled, Saves the Day's "In Reverie" etc. etc.)
A: I think it's pretty refreshing. Floral Green by Title Fight is another example, which I think is a fantastic record. Sometimes it's a bit harder to swallow if a band is going in a more poppy direction (The tendency tends to be that they've "sold out"). But for bands who seem to go a new route for no other reason than it's where they are now as musicians, I think it's brave and entertaining. I don't always LOVE the result but I'd rather have bands always challenging themselves than putting out the same album over and over again.
