The Loved Ones - Build & Burn

posted June 20th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I fell in love with The Loved Ones after seeing them live and hearing their first album ‘Keep Your Heart’. It seemed like a perfect example of the pop-punk-with-a-gravely edge stuff Fat Wreck Chords has become famous for, Dillinger 4, NoFX, Strung Out and Strike Anywhere are all decent, but not perfect comparisons as The [...]

Sleep - Hesitation Wounds

posted June 15th, 2009 · posted by Lucas · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

This record has been released on Sage Francis’ (hip hop artist with records released on Epitaph records) label ‘Strange Famous’ and anyone familiar with Sage will hear this album (and Sleep’s overall style) as being very much from the same mold.

Braindead - No Consequences

posted April 28th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

By: Braindead

Last Hours is, in essence, a loose affiliation of people who like melodic hardcore, so I feel lucky to have got my hands on the new album by one of the most exciting up and coming bands of that genre, Braindead.

Bomb the music industry – Scrambles

posted April 24th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

By: Bomb the music industry

For those of you not familiar with ‘the bomb’, brain-child of Jeff Rosenstock (ex-Arrogant Sons Of Bitches) they’ve putting out a crazy mix of experimental ska-punk for the last few years, all free for download on their website. An amazing live show and awesome songs have gained them quite a reputation, so I donated my $5 and downloaded the new album Scrambles from their website.

Hello Bastards/Soro/Spectra Hawk – Split - Split 7"

posted April 23rd, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

By: Hello Bastards/Soro/Spectra Hawk

Well, today we have Soro. In the best traditions of crust it is slow and heavy with a soupcon of death-metal in the vocals. It is a large portion (9 or 10 minutes each), unfortunately the chef seems to have rushed the production a little as it leaves somewhat to be desired. Something else maybe?

Sonic Boom Six - City of Thieves

posted April 22nd, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

By: Sonic Boom Six

As much as i love punk rock, and i really, really do, sometimes I’d like to be able to go to a show safe in the knowledge that I won’t be watching yet another Hot Water Music-esque punk rock band, don’t get me wrong, most of my favourite bands fit that bracket, but sometimes I [...]

Kelly Kemp - Kelly Kemp

posted April 11th, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

This is the first release from ex-NoComply frontwoman turned acoustic songtress Kelly Kemp, and it has been a long time coming. Kelly has been on the acoustic circuit for a while, wooing audiences all across the country with her songs of love, friendship and resilience to the drudgery of modern day life.

Git Some - Cosmic Rock

posted April 10th, 2009 · posted by Chris Walktall · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

I made the mistake of reading Git Some’s press release before listening to the CD, which explained the ex-Planes Mistaken For Stars chaps smoke a lot of weed and play in a Christian rock band on Sundays. Therefore, I expected a slow paced, self-indulgent Creed style band. Boy, was I wrong.

Static Radio NJ - An Evening of Bad Decisions

posted April 9th, 2009 · posted by tommy · marked as: CD reviews · Reviews

Whenever I listen to a CD for the first time, I’m secretly thinking ‘I hope this album opens with a pick slide’ ‘An evening of bad decisions’ delivers, setting the tone for a franticly paced gem of a punk rock record
