Review: Stick To Your Guns-“Diamond”

April 6, 2012

With The Hope Division being my favorite record of 2010 and a record that really helped changed the way I think about the world and just have a more positive outlook on life, it was needless to say I was anticipating Diamond as much as possible. The question is did it live up to my […]

Review: Pentimento/Young English-“Split”

March 29, 2012

I’ve been seeing a bunch of commercials lately that state “the best things in life are unexpected pleasures”. While unexpected pleasures are nice, what about expected pleasures? After all, with today’s internet climate being what it is, filled with trolls and negativity, isn’t it nice to find something good and then it always lives up […]

Review: Every Time I Die-“Ex Lives”

March 1, 2012

There are few bands that can say they have accomplished what Every Time I Die have. After fourteen years, every full length the band has released has been superb. Throughout these fourteen years, they have never once donned an image to sell more records and have never once started to make music for the wrong […]

No season of the year has more enjoyable music than summer (in my humble opinion at least). There is something special about riding around in 90 degree heat listening to some up beat punk rock without a care in the world. Every summer for me has had a special record or two that served as […]

Review: Heems-“Nehru Jackets”

I enjoyed Das Racist’s full length debut Relax. There, I said it. Sure there were some unexceptional moments, (“Booty In the Air” I’m talking to you), but overall the personalities of Heems a.k.a. Himanshu and Victor Vasquez a.k.a. Kool AD remained the same: hilarious, witty, chill, and endearingly lazy. I enjoyed the more polished production […]

Review: The Jealous Sound-“A Gentle Reminder”

February 1, 2012

0

The first full length of the year that I have truly enjoyed has been The Jealous Sound’s comeback album. It’s truly pop rock at it’s finest; it’s catch without being cloying and still maintains a strong sense of musical integrity throughout. The whole record treats the listener with breathtaking melodies and soaring, dreamy, atmospheric guitars. […]
