Tomorrow (Oct 24) my reviews for The Scenic's Bipolaroid (Victory Records) and Your Demise's The Kids We Used To Be (Viisible Noise/Rise) will be up.
Next week (Oct 31) my reviews for Tumbledown's Empty Bottle will be up as well as Like The Star's The Guidelines of Love & Lies.
I also just received A Bullet For Pretty Boy's upcoming record, Revision:Revise, off Razor And Tie/Artery Foundation. Although I'd never listened to the band before, the record isn't bad - solid heavy release. I'll have first impressions on it in a blog on here next week, as well.
After reading all the hype about Rdio, I did a free three-day trail and ended up getting the $5 a month subscription.
The program is simply fantastic. I had used Spotify a few months back when that sampler version of it was around in the US, and Rdio compares wonderfully, as they're incredibly similar.
The fact is, the cost is only $5 a month ($10 for mobile use) for unlimated streaming of thousands of records and discographies. All of the music is simply right there - just a click away. I highly recomeend this for everyone on this site; it's revolutionary.
Through Rdio in just a week, I've discovered many bands that I've always been meaning to listen to but just had never gotten around to hearing. In just a week I've finally discovered bands/artists including fun., Mute Math, Glassjaw, Converge, Mastodon, Copeland, etc. It's simply unbelievable.
If you're interested, a free three-day trial is available at www.rdio.com. Let me know if you have any questions!
I simply cannot get enough of this album. I've loved all of JEW's previous releases - Futures being my favorite - and I feel that Invented could end up being my favorite record by them. Adkin's lyrics are pristine as always, his vocals soar, and the guitars and drums form around his sound better than ever.
It's the perfect record as the fall weather comes. Highly recommended for the die hard Jimmy Eat World fan or for anyone looking to check them out for the first time.
My review of the all-star triumvirate - Fred Mascherino (ex-Taking Back Sunday, The Color Fred), Andy Jackson (ex-Hot Rod Circuit, Death in the Park), and Josh Eppard (ex-Coheed and Cambria) - debut record as their new band Terrible Things: http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=1892962
Everyone's favorite pop-punk album of the year, The Wonder Years' The Upsides will be re-released on Hopeless Records on September 21st with four additional tracks. After receiving the album, my verdict is that as expected, the additional tracks are great. No question about it.
