Robin Hood theory- Gangstarr
one of my favorite songs from my all-time favorite rapper. this is not just lyrically mesmerizing but the beat is something i love to drive to. thats the main reason i chose most of these songs. they’re just so fun to listen to and nod your head to.
In love with the 80s - Relient K
very high contender for catchiest song in the world, in my book. i love this band so much and i hold them in the same regard as blink-182, home grown, Allister, New Found Glory, and fall out boy, but feel they never got the true recognition they deserved because of religious beliefs, which is dumb. Matt is a genius.
12:51-the strokes
i love Room on Fire in its entirety but had to pick one song, so i chose the first song i ever heard from it. the irony of my straight edge self, driving down the street with my windows down, screaming “WE CAN GO AND GET 40’s!” at the top of my lungs makes me laugh.
Death grip- turnstile 
one of the most energetic, and amazing hardcore bands to exist, and i feel so blessed that they are apart of my generation. i feel like 10 years from now I’m going to be telling younger kids about seeing Turnstile in a hockey rink in my town. step 2 rhythm is amazing and this song just rips.

POZ Review: Yellowcard - Lift A Sail

by Zack Zarrillo - Sep 29, 2014

by Becky Kovach, edited by Erik van Rheenen

After more than a decade, the men behind Yellowcard are reinventing themselves. In “Illuminate,” Ryan Key sings: ”We hope to run from what’s been done/Look for a future no one else has sung.” This is a message that the band clearly took to heart. Lift A Sail is Yellowcard’s biggest album yet, a sweeping and illustrious rock album no one could have foreseen. And it’s safe to say that this one is a game changer.  

Opener “Convocation” prepares listeners for the journey they are about to embark on – its openness is as beautiful and bright as it is tender and stirring, and it is a sign of what’s to follow in the next twelve tracks. Not because of the tone or the lightness, but because of how big the track truly is. And while many fans are sure to draw comparisons between this and its Lights and Sounds counterpart, it is worth nothing that “Three Flights Up” closes in upon its piano centric melodies, whereas the layers of elegant strings in “Convocation” continue to swell until its conclusion. 

“Transmission Home” picks up where “Convocation” leaves off: with hollow, booming drums before diving into a crunchy guitar melody. The verses are grounded and clear-cut, contrasting with the spacious choruses that have Key pleading into the void: “I will send a transmission home/To say that I’ve been out here too long alone/And I wanna come down now.” The bridge brings him back down with its sweet piano melody and soothing violins, while the synths sparkling just beneath the surface lend an ethereal awareness.

Weekend Recap: A Weekend Gone Wrong

by Zack Zarrillo - Sep 29, 2014

Joyce Manor Release Statement Over Stage Diving Controversy

Joyce Manor swerved in and out of controversy this weekend  as divegate reaches more and more people. Over the start of the weekend, it looked like things went really wrong at a show in Houston, and opinions were made before a full picture was shown.

The band released a statement, which was ultimately the right and needed thing to do.

Now, however, a rumor is floating around that frontman Barry Johnson was punched on stage last night. That is not true. 

Brand New Back In The Studio

Brand New are gearing up for a fall tour, but are spending more time in the studio before they head out. Here’s to hoping they finish it up.

Ottobar Employee Slain Outside Of Venue

A terrible, terrible story. Hopefully this venue figures out new ways of safety and that overall the music community in the area does not hurt for it. 

Hot Rod Circuit Are Tracking New Music

What’s that? Yes, yes Hot Rod Circuit are recording new music. The band is tracking an album, and they’ll see where it goes from there. 

Rancid Announce New Album ‘Honor Is All We Know’
