Summer is officially over here in Florida, The unbearable heat takes the backseat to “kinda hot” during the day and ” I almost can wear this hoodie” at night. This time of year people are less crazy, yelling less often and generally drunk later. This is my time to ratchet up the coffee consumption and it’s also the time to listen to less reggae but not quite the middle of winter when I listen to blast beat death metal. This time of year calls for music that’s like a jolt of the blackest coffee, it’s the time of year to look forward to next summer already. Summer is officially over in Florida and it’s ok by me. - Vinnie Fiorello
Bi**lly Bragg - Richard
Always open a mix with a tug on the heart strings. Billy is untouchable.
The Menzingers - Good Things
I never will not listen to this song. It’s stuck with me since I
saw them play it love months before “on the impossible…” came out.
Arcade Fire.- Reflektor
New jam. It’s too long. But I don’t care. The band is loved by many and I am one of them.
Dead Kennedys.- Straight A’s *Song is not on Spotify
This song connected with me so much at 15. It made me want to make songs that connected with people the same way.
The Clash - Jimmy Jazz
Most underrated track on London Calling. It was always my favorite. A controversial pick for sure.
The Marked Men - A Little Time
It’s turning fall. But this song sounds like Indian summer.
Muddy Waters - Mannish Boy
Everyone should listen to Muddy. If you don’t own some sort of collection of his, do yourself a favor and get one.
Tilly and The Wall - Chandelier Lake
I heard this song once the other day. I’ve always liked tilly and the wall, but I really loved this track.
The Flatliners - Drown In Blood
Chris’ voice on this record is amazing. He told me he wrote some of this song on our Australian tour last year which is rad.
Worlds Scariest Police Chases – Americunt *Song is not on Spotify
In the studio with these guys, numerous times they pushed my comfort level with their lyrics on the line of challenging and PC’ness or offensiveness. But they always came out on the side of hilarious and taking the piss out of ourselves. I can’t wait for this record to be released and see how the world reacts to their insanity. - Chris #2
It’s near Halloween so I’ve been listening to a lot of dark and creepy stuff lately.
Those Poor Bastards – Deep in the Mud
I’ve been listening to a lot of Those Poor Bastards lately. They are from Madison, Wisconsin and they actually wrote the song Pills I Took, that Hank Williams III covered on his album Straight to Hell. My favorite song by them is probably either Deep in the Mud or Drown in the River.
Nick Cave – The Curse of Millhaven
Another guy who’s real creepy and fun to listen to around this time is Nick Cave. One of my favorite songs of his is the Curse of Millhaven because it’s about a girl who seems… interesting.
Murder City Devils – Idle Hands
The Murder City Devils are always good creepy punk rock. It also seems like there’s always a rumor that they are back together and coming out with a new album soon. I really hope that’s not just a rumor. One of my favorites from them is Idle Hands.
Alkaline Trio – Private Eye
Private Eye by Alkaline Trio is another great tune. They are nice and creepy and that one actually has something to do with crime.
Monday means BandsOnBands, and we’re excited to be posting the new PropertyOfZack features today with drummer Dan Bourke of Stray From The Path. The band just released Anonymous, so make sure to pick it up here.
From Dan Bourke:
While you might be surprised, most of us in Stray From The Path have almost polar opposite taste in music. I may be the only Anti Flag fan in the bunch. but this band had such a tremendous impact on my childhood and my songwriting to this day.
I started listening to music at a abnormally young age, and it wasnt long until i found bands like Alice in Chains, Guns n Roses, and Rage Against the Machine. Rage specifically was a Band that had such an amazing agenda, and brought it to your everyday mainstream “Rock” fan. But it wasnt until luckily i found out underground music existed, and there was this band called Anti Flag, that for me, was more on my level, more of a band that i could look at as a peer. I felt much more able to relate with their straight forward and honest approach to writing. Anti Flag had a shit ton to say, and they didnt make it hard for you to decode in their lyrics. They were not afraid to put it all out there. They never broke through as any mainstream band unfortunatly because i know if the masses got to listen to them and hear what they had to say the way i did, things might be a bit different. I was very young when i found them, and in no way did they brainwash me like my mother would say, they offered ideas in their songs that their is more to this world then what you may see/hear/read. Even to this very day at 27 years old me and my mother were having a political debate recently, and i ended up saying something that was a direct 6 word quote from a song of theirs. Free thinking is huge, and this band helped me realize this long ago.
