So Hideous 9.0
Last Poem/First Light
The blackened heart of post-hardcore meets the already black heat of black metal.
For Today + Prepared Like a Bride 6.5
April 18 @ Towradgi Surf Lifesaving Club
Don’t be an arse next time, fatso.
Abrasive, loud and Pixie-like.
Neon Trees 7.0
Cute and mature but lacks that punkish attitude that Neon Trees is known for.
The Menzingers 8.5
Highly anticipated new full-length from the Philly quartet
The Shackeltons 7.0
Raw hard-hitting post-punk without any fancy gimmicks and shiny bells attached to it
Breathe Carolina 8.0
Both old time fans of Breathe Carolina and new listeners of Breathe Carolina should be able to find something within the album they’ll enjoy.
Live @ Air
Beautiful would be an understatement.
Big name hardcore music from plucky newcomers.
Tiny Empires 6.0
Dense and hearty debut EP from an array of punk vets
New Empire 8.0
In A Breath
Haunting melodies drenched with authenticity and honesty.
Semi Precious Weapons 7.5
Semi Precious Weapons' newest album soars with entrancing songs and a whole lot of charisma.
Art Contest 8.0
Art Contest's debut LP takes much from various math bands, but makes it their own
Body Works EP
Megosh eat your soul, while making you feel absurdly satisfied.
Into Infernus 7.5
Into Infernus have created a massive album, one that ranges from relentlessly intense to undeniably clever.
I Divide 9.5
Last One Standing
Explosive debut from a brilliant UK rock band.
Shadowed By Vultures
Soundtrack to a revolution.
Memphis May Fire 4.5
Unconditional is going to be one of the most uninspired records of the year; and I wish it wasn't.
I Am An Island
I Am An Island is a staple album for anybody who loves alternative rock and sing-along rock anthems.
The Used 6.5
It’s hard to tell whether or not this change was the right one for The Used.
Manchester Orchestra 9.0
Manchester Orchestra has an illustrious career and the common courtesy to constantly remind us of their strengths. With the release of "Cope," their fourth studio album, it is no surprise that all 11 tracks ooze personality and talent. "Cope" has a certain identity, though, that differs in terms of its place in Manchester's discography.
Christina Perri 6.5
Head or Heart
Christina Perri does a complete 180 in her newest album with an abundance of love songs.
Jeremy Loops 10
Folk music has never sounded this good.
The Future's Void
The album incorporates the hooks and melodies of pop music with a dark twist to it as it adopts a harsh industrial aesthetic to it.
The Decade EP
Although shorter in form, Alesana's new release measures up fully in terms of quality.
Devil is a record of modern throwback, combining all of the over-the-top theatrical stylings of BPB with the friendlier sensibilities of Owens last project, D.R.U.G.S.
Black Pistol Fire 6.0
Hush or Howl
The band possesses a sound that has hints of The Black Keys and Creedence Clearwater Revival within it, making certain tracks interesting to listen to. However, as a whole, the sound was a little generic for the Americana scene, making it hard to distinguish one song from another.
Oh, Common Life
Beautifully somber record that shows the growth Fireworks have achieved
Mind Equals Blown
