The Get Up Kids - Overdue
For some reason this band is a very “Fall” band for me. Maybe it’s a Midwest thing. They sound the best to me when I have jeans on and the days are starting to get shorter. (That was the most emo sentence I’ve ever uttered.) 
Saves The Day - Sell My Old Clothes, I’m Off To Heaven
Luckily I was able to see them play this more than a few times over the summer on Warped Tour. One of my favorites by one of my favorites. 
Taking Back Sunday - Error: Operator
That Bass intro. That chorus. I miss Fred. 
The Story So Far - Navy Blue
Cool finger picking guitar work on this chill song from the acoustic record. Makes me feel… blue. 
BANE - Final Backward Glance
The final song off the final Bane record. “I’ve never been much good at saying goodbye.” That line hits me hard… 
New Found Glory - Oxygen
Arguably one of the best NFG songs of all time. Maybe I’m all growed up, but this is usually my go to NFG record of late.

POZ Review: Light Years - Temporary

by Zack Zarrillo - Sep 10, 2014

by Ali Killian, edited by Erik van Rheenen

In this resurgence of pop-punk popularity, so many band names are thrown around it’s hard to keep track sometimes. Monikers such as The Story So Far, Handguns and Gnarwolves began clogging up my Facebook feed all at once, thanks to friends constantly gushing over them. Like many, I imagine, I wanted to delve into this generation of pop-punk, but was so overwhelmed with options I didn’t know where to start. Hell, even though I’ve listened to the entire Spotify discographies of two out of those three bands multiple times (Gnarwolves is still on my to-listen-to list) — and I liked what I heard — I still don’t know their music well enough to sing along at shows. Or, in some cases, I’m not able to tell Pop-Punk band A apart from Pop-Punk band B without spending countless free days I don’t have studying their nuanced differences.

Music from different bands can start to sound the same in mass quantities, pop-punk or not. Thanks to past experience, I figured it would be the same with Light Years. And at first, it was. Listening to 2012’s Just Between Us… and 2013’s I Won’t Hold This Against You, Light Years sounded to me very, very similar to old-school pop-punk greats like New Found Glory and blink-182, especially with how damn catchy the Ohio quartet’s music is.

However, with its new EP, Light Years has definitively broken away from its influences and contemporaries. Temporary showcases Pat Kennedy’s fully fleshed-out vocal identity, whole and polished, delivering thoughtful lyrics amidst individually distinguishable instrumentals slung from guitarist Andrew Foerst, bassist Tommy Englert and drummer Kent Sliney. Each instrument’s role is well defined and well executed, making Temporary easy to digest without sacrificing quality in craftsmanship. While each song produces one large sound, the focus is not on the whole but on the interaction between the parts – shout out to pop-punk production master Will Yip (Braid, La Dispute, Tigers Jaw).

POZ Discussion: Most Anticipated September Releases

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 26, 2014

September is nearly here, and we’re continuing 2014 with a jam-packed month of releases that PropertyOfZack team members couldn’t be more stoked to hear. In today’s new Discussion, we’re highlighting our personal Most Anticipated September Releases. Check out our list below and feel free to reblog with what you’re looking forward to as well!

Tiny Moving Parts - Pleasant Living (09/09)
It’s been very fun watching Tiny Moving Parts grow over the past year and a half. I use fun because that’s the adjective that pops into my head when I think about the band. Yes, their lyrics are often sad and their guitars are more than often twinkly, but in spirit, I know three fun dudes are coming up with great songs.

Tours with Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms, and soon Dads, sort of shape the band in a perfect mold between heavy hitting songs, but the kind that you want to make you happy, not sad.

I think I just created a new kind of emo. - Zack Zarrillo

The American Scene - Haze (09/09)
It’s been two years since The American Scene released the band’s sophomore album and I, for one, have been eagerly awaiting a follow up to the slow burning Safe For Now. And with fall around the corner, the time is right for a new release from the indie rockers: the band’s hazy tones and piercing vocals are the perfect pairing for those chilly nights. Haze is due out on September 9, and a number of tracks have already been released, including “Nails of Love,” “Royal Blue,” and “4th and Broadway.” Whereas the last album was beautifully deliberate and unhurried, these new tracks feature sweeping hooks and an invigorating haste. This is a band that I have long believed deserved far more attention than they’ve gotten, and I think they’re finally poised to make that happen. - Becky Kovach
