EP REVIEW: ‘Goodbye Dinosaur...’ by Phoxjaw

As great a success as British post-hardcore has been in the past, its overall impact has been waning fairly considerably recent, despite the influx of new bands refusing to slow down. 465 mots de plus

EP REVIEW: ‘New Kids In America’ by Not Ur Girlfrenz

It’s more or less impossible to go into a discussion about Not Ur Girlfrenz without first addressing the colossal elephant in the room, namely that the ages of this trio range from twelve to fourteen. 613 mots de plus

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Superstition’ by Funeral Chic

When bands like Trap Them and Nails started picking up some serious steam a few years ago, it felt like a true moment was captured. At that point, there hadn’t been a serious movement in heavy music for a while, at least not one that could match up to the ferocity of those bands, and see a brand of crusty, blackened hardcore being wrenched up from the depths to become as serious a force as it was really hit hard. 558 mots de plus

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Highway Crosses’ by All Hail The Yeti

Looking back on it now, some of the uncertainty and hesitance towards All Hail The Yeti feels quite undeserved. With the way that some spoke about their fusion of metalcore with groove- and southern metal, you’d think they were some radical new prospect ready to rend unfixable divides between fanbases, when really they’ve not done much of anything at all (and plus, it’s not as if metal fans aren’t perfectly capable of dividing themselves anyway). 567 mots de plus

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Northern Sun Sessions’ by The Virginmarys

As arduous and frustrating as it can sometimes be, it’s seemingly a necessary evil to compared bands to those who came before, not only in terms of sound but how they fill their roles within certain scenes as a whole. 629 mots de plus

EP REVIEW: ‘Honey’ by Crooked Teeth

There’s something to appreciate about bands looking to take a genre like pop-rock in new directions, especially when said genre has become positively drenched with chancers and copycats running off the absolute bare minimum. 628 mots de plus

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Upside Down Flowers’ by Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness

In terms of how he’s gone about moving through different musical avenues throughout his career, Andrew McMahon deserves a lot of credit. It would’ve been all to easy to string the Something Corporate name along with him down the line for some guaranteed leverage, but whereas that’s proved extremely detrimental for some bands (hi, Fall Out Boy), he’s instead gone down the smarter route, evolving into new projects as the sound has been reshaped. 966 mots de plus
