Man, they weren't lying about "Irish Curtains" being THE track off this thing.

Not a fan of the re-recorded version of "Change" but dig this record anyway. My first favorite of the year.

Still...

Haha yeah, that was a gut shot.

When I found 104.5 it was like being reborn. Lol

The only Change.org petition I ever signed.

Cool to see. Saw it on Twitter through The Early November tweeting it out. Word of mouth is huge.

Pretty sure there consulting with the local music...

I sometimes bitch about 104.5 playing the same thing over and over, but that's just radio in general. Although when alt music crosses over to top hits radio it gets even worse. But it's great to have...

Think this band has some big time jams left in them. Feel like BABE left a sour taste in everyone's mouth but that it did bring the noise just not in a consistent manner. It was lyrically weak...

Completely agree on all points. It was first, or at least first to become popular. And it doesn't do anything wrong, at least for the user experience.

Google has tried, Apple is trying, I think...

Been getting back in to MO, and it's actually been Heart Attack (unappreciated IMO) and Heavy Love along with The Human Highlight Reel and Before We Met.

Real Talk does have their most iconic...

I had a feeling this year would be a downer for me for new releases after what I thought was an extremely strong 2015. I like a lot of the bands on here but nothing that I am dying to hear. Hoping to...

Think this is better then Ocean Avenue. Harder. Instrumental right in to title track that rips. The second half does tail off a bit but finishes very strong with Holly Wood Died.

Remember putting...

I think some of you guys are missing the point of a B-market tour.

That a band that's gotten as big as TWY will continue to visit these locations is really cool of them. Yes, they can sell out much...

Yikes, only 9 tracks overall? LP's are getting shorter and shorter. Most albums this year that I listened to clocked in at 10.

Good to know Change has been re-recorded. I'm actually a sucker for...

Really? Didn't know that. Is there a track listing somewhere? I always feel it's sorta a cop out, unless the songs are re-recorded. But I understand, especially for an up and comer like Grayscale,...

That We Were Sharks album is really good.

I've seen them on related artists forever and never gave a listen. Gave Highways a play through and immediately dug it. The new EP is a natural...

I think it gets too much hate around these parts and think reordering the songs is an interesting take.

One thing that's bothered me has been the negative tied to the album and also one of SYG...

Good writeup on Grayscale, and totally agree. Cool to see them open for a pretty stacked lineup like this. They are on their way.

Also surprised to see the Cult opinions, but I actually agree. Didn't do much for me and I rep this band pretty hard.

They've been remarkably consistently good and I'm glad they're making another...

Really liked S&W. Funny story is my wife (who doesn't listen to music I do) found them for me. It was right around the time I was really in to Saosin, so it was a slam dunk.

Great White Whale is my...

Probably about no one shares this opinion, but Wide Eyed by The Junior Varsity is one of my favorite albums of all time. Like top 3. Means a lot to me.

It being removed really cut deep.

Sounds like 104.5 Block Party things they've thrown all summer and in to fall. They get heavy rotation on the station, and I think they have a soft spot for Philly. The one line about potholes seemed...

With the Punches have made a compilation of their first two EP's available on Spotify. The comp is titled "Farewell". The band has been on hiatus since 2013 or so.

You're either early or late, it appears. Late in that your Spotify hasnt updated to reflect the pulling of the songs, or are lucky and are early in the game for them to come back up.

Hopefully it's...

No The Junior Varsity's "Wide Eyed" either. Of course, Victory Records album from 2005...

This one hurts. Bad enough that I'm willing to explore other services.

I knew days like this would come....
