Featured Stream: Heartless Breakers

Posted by: Jack Appleby (07/23/13)
Nothing's better than watching a new band move full steam ahead, especially one teeming with potential. Featuring ex-Daytrader guitarist Matt Mascarenas, Heartless Breakers are those guys - anxious to work their asses off while showcasing skills both classic and unique for pop-punk. Their Prescriptions EP certainly hits that energy and angst of a Taking Back Sunday or The Wonder Years, but channels the musicianship of Bayside or older Transit. We could keep spitballing comparisons, or you could hit the replies and listen to their EP in full. Grab Prescriptions from the band's merch store, iTunes, and most other online retailers/streaming services.

I've only listened to Transit's discography front-to-back a few times, but to compare the insanely talented Bayside to them seems wildly inaccurate.

Did you really just comment on two bands in my "Recommended If You Like" and the relationship between those bands, in a thread that's clearly not about either of those bands?

That's just a whole new level of facepalm for me.

You conflated two bands into a single touchstone, so I think it's a valid criticism; sometimes the most revealing opinions arise from listing artists who are already members of an alleged league.

"but channels the musicianship of Bayside or older Transit"

That implies that both bands have solid musicianship. It doesn't at all mean we should compare those two bands - just that I believe both have good musicianship, in very different ways.

The user's complaint was that comparing Bayside to Transit is "wildly inaccurate" - which isn't at all what I was doing.

wow, first comment is an argument...that's, well, its pathetic. If one of you, anyone, doesn't like what someone else has said, look up in the right hand corner-see that red 'X' there? Click it. Honestly...
