Artists Everyone Should Love: Brand New
And with music and lyrics as good as there’s I challenge you to find someone that doesn’t like at least one of their songs. There is something so genius about them that forces your brain to really listen and then once you’ve done that they steal your heart forever.
jamietidders asked: hey I'm going reading festival too, who you looking forward to seeing?

Album Review: The Wonder Years - The Greatest Generation
Anger fueled song “The Bastards, The Vultures, The Wolves” is the kind of song you want to yell at the top of your lungs and it sounds as though Soupy is doing just that and fellow band mates are hammering their gear to within an inch of their lives alongside him.
Introducing: One Fell Swoop
…amusingly describe themselves as “two scrawny white kids and two chubby pink kids that like punk rock” but i’m here to tell you all that these guys don’t just ‘like’ punk rock but boy, oh boy, they can play punk rock.
Introducing: Inherit The Stars
…they’ve found their own unique sound that draws on some of the best parts of their influences and ties it together to create a striking finish that is unafraid to experiment and break the boundaries of typical hardcore music. There’s synths, strings and screaming and riffs and choruses that will stick in your mind and have you singing along with one listen as well as softer, delicate songs that will evoke goosebumps on even the toughest skin.
Album Review: Transit - Young New England
Title track “Young New England” employs gang vocals different from what we’ve heard before and is the clearest nod to their hometown, Boston, than on any other track. “So Long, So Long” is incredibly catchy and lighthearted and fast becoming one my favourite tracks. There’s layers of vocals and music that overlap creating the sense of nostalgia that’s already in the lyrics, “so long so long to the silver days, so long so long, to feeling second rate.”
Album Review: Bring Me The Horizon - Sempiternal
From the experimental electronics, like on opener “Can You Feel My Heart?” to the ear shattering musical breakdowns and the ever poetic and ultimately striking lyrics, Sempiternal is a showcase of diversity and creativity in the very best of ways.
Artists Everyone Should Love: City And Colour
With two more albums under the Canadian’s belt - Bring Me Your Love and Little Hell - as well as the re-release of Sometimes in 2009, a fourth album - The Hurry And The Harm - is set to grace our ears in June of this year.
Album Review: Paramore
Boasting a broad range of exceptional musical ability from the trio that shows them at their very best, the album is unpredictable, experimental and full of surprises, but, ultimately, feels like Paramore at the highest possible standard.
