I Haven't Seen Scene, Kids.
I Haven't Seen Scene, Kids.
08/31/10 at 09:29 AM by stereokiller
I never experienced going to a Brand New tour, or maybe even a Midtown show, and I like bands like All Time Low and all, but the feeling of "belonging" isn't just there. I've lost a place to stay, ever since The Matches went on hiatus (and devoting to a single band tends to get boring after a while), and I've been looking for tons of new bands that I could own. This is a music site. We love owning bands. And for the past few months, I could never really get into music as before, let's say spinning a The Ataris playlist, or the feeling you get when listening to Dog Problems. I have listened to tons of stuff: The Audition, Capital Lights, etc, but nothing had struck me. I spin them occasionally, and I like them, but there's that feeling that I'd still be fine without them. But now as 2010 is gradually unraveling , I'm slowly picturing the scene fall back into place as well. I see tons of new band recreating it. And I'm happy to feel something once again.

Some Bands That I Think Are Helping Recreate the Scene in their Own Unique Ways:
The Graduate - goddamn, Only Every Time is one of the most amazing records I've heard in a while
The Dangerous Summer - lyrically brutally honest, i dig.
You Me and Everyone We Know - a more sexually oriented the Format, or rather this band is the bastard offspring of Say Anything(IARB, IDOTG) and The Format
fun - thank god they are blowing up
The Swellers - nothing much to say here

I mean they aren't the most lyrically mature, or the most musically superior. I dunno. There's just something that clicks.

And please don't go grammar nazi on me. I'm pretty much asleep right now, and just wanted to get this off my chest.
