Senses Fail are out on a fall tour with For the Fallen Dreams, Expire, Being As An Ocean, So Many Ways, and The Acacia Strain. We’re happy to have the band and So Many Ways together for a new PropertyOfZack Playlist feature. Check out the Playlists below while listening to the songs on Spotify and reading everyone’s thoughts!
Morrisey - Everyday Is Like Sunday
I used to pretend to hate Morrisey. That was a waste of time and eventually futile.
Twitching Tongues – Eyes Adjust
Bring back the 90’s. This band is so much better than most of what anyone listens to.
Turnstile – Keep It Moving
Bounce, positive message, fun hardcore.
Deafheaven – Dream House
Beautiful music. Never thought I would hear such a mix of genres and it work so well.
Balance and Composure – Tiny Raindrop
I want to be Jon’s tiny rain drop. Record is amazing.
Deftones - Rosemary
Consistantly puts out some of the most thought provoking, moving music. Still love this record almost a year later.
Poison The Well - Ghostchant
Highly underrated record from the worlds most underrated band. Please go back and listen.
Harms Way - Timing
Makes me want to lift heavy things and yell at people in traffic. Really awesome band doing some really cool things in the hardcore world.
Xibalba - Soledad
Lots of cool music coming out of the LA hardcore scene and these guys are probably my favorite.
Jets To Brazil – Sweet Avenue
My favorite song of all time.
Selena Gomez - Music Feels Better
Selena’s new album is action-packed with hits. This is the track that stuck out the most to us, and has since become the soundtrack to setting up our gear.
Ariana Grande - Baby I
Again, another album that is is 100% pure pop gold. There isn’t a bad song on it, but we picked this one because it seems to get the most plays on the way to practice.
Waka Flocka Flame - TTG (Trained To Go)
A deep cut off of Waka’s classic “Flockavelli.” Honestly, how could you listen to this song and NOT get pumped and want to punch your fist through a wall?
2 Chainz - Where U Been?
After releasing a trap classic like “BOATS”, you know 2 Chainz had to deliver a great follow-up. He did just that, and this is one of the numerous bangers on it.
We resurrected Mealtime With Buddy last week on PropertyOfZack, and we’re back for another serving today. Check out Senses Fail’s upcoming dates for their fall tour with For the Fallen Dreams, Expire, Being As An Ocean, and The Acacia Strain and read up on Buddy’s recipes for Fatuous with Crumbles Feta and Kale and Red Cabble Slaw below!
Fatoush w/ Crumbles Feta
2 pieces of pita bread
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
coarse salt and fresh pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked red kidney beans
1/2 cup, fresh flat leaf parsley
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
crumbled feta to taste
Toast the pita over the flame of a gas burner. Drizzle w/ olive oil, and season with salt.
Tear into pieces and toss with kidney beans, cucumber, shallot, parsley, lemons juice and olive oil in a large bowl.
Mealtime With Buddy debuted on PropertyOfZack just about two years ago, and it was one of our favorite features of all time. And that’s why we’re incredibly excited to be bringing Mealtime back for a limited run this fall as Senses Fail gears up for their upcoming fall tour with For the Fallen Dreams, Expire, Being As An Ocean, and The Acacia Strain. Read up on how Buddy’s Vegetarian Pad Thai recipe and try not to get too hungry with all the accompanying pictures!
8 oz. dried Pad Thai rice noodles, OR enough for 2 people (linguini-width)
1-2 eggs (vegans can substitute 1/2 cup soft tofu - see instructions below*)
4 green onions, white parts sliced and kept separate from green
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 fresh red or green chili, sliced
3-4 “heads” of baby bok choy
2-3 cups bean sprouts
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts, OR substitute cashews
Pad Thai Sauce:
1 Tbsp tamarind paste, t
1/4 cup vegetable stock (or faux-chicken)
3+1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/2 to 1 tsp. chili sauce
3 Tbsp. brown sugar, or more to taste
1/8 tsp. ground white pepper
3-4 Tbsp. oil for stir-frying
lime wedges for serving
1) Bring a pot of water to a boil and switch off heat. Soak noodles in the hot water for 4-6 minutes, or until limp but still too firm to eat. Drain and rinse with cold water. Noodles must be under-cooked at this stage in order to come out right (they will finish cooking later when they are stir-fried).
2) Combine ‘pad Thai sauce’ ingredients in a bowl, stirring well to dissolve the paste and sugar (if your tamarind paste is thick, only add 1 Tbsp. If thin/runny, add 1.5 Tbsp). Note that this sauce should have a very STRONG-tasting flavor that tastes sour-sweet first, followed by salty and spicy. Set aside.
3) Warm a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 Tbsp. oil plus the white parts of the green onion (reserve the rest for serving), garlic, galangal/ginger, and chili. Stir-fry 1 minute to release the fragrance.
4) Add the bok choy plus stock. Stir-fry 2 minutes, or until bok choy is bright green and slightly softened.
