  • 5 You Should Know: French Music


    I always feel awe and appreciation for people with eclectic tastes in music (How could someone like both techno AND country??). But oftentimes, I’ve noticed that even the most versatile listeners distance themselves from music from other countries. I don’t know if it’s because unknown languages are intimidating or if it’s because the US does…

  • Why Music Is My Drug


    Let me just say this outright before I dive into this concept, cliché as it is – I am straight edge. Now, I don’t want to be one of those stuck-up, pretentious jerks who insist it’s the “right way to live your life”; in fact, I’m perfectly fine with people who don’t want to live…

  • MEB Presents: Criminally Underrated Records From Popular Discographies


    Some of these albums split opinions. Others have been panned by fans and critics alike. What they all have in common, however, is that they come from bands that have hit the big time and built some wildly popular discographies over the years. Perhaps these albums were unfortunate to succeed an effort that is considered a…

  • Protest The Hero: Volition

    PTH - Promo

    It’s been a long time coming for Protest the Hero. I mean, in reality we’re not looking at a band that hasn’t released anything in a substantial amount of years, but following a departure from Vagrant Records and a more-than-successful Indiegogo campaign to support a new LP – you have to hand it to them.…

  • Sainthood Reps: Headswell

    Sainthood Reps - Promo

    As I sat down and prepared to write a review of Sainthood Reps’ sophomore album, Headswell, I couldn’t help but think about Brand New. I mean, it’s kind of obvious how much Sainthood Reps channels a lot of their vibes — strickening guitar riffs, screamed choruses, nearly-depressing, yet thoroughly comforting lyrics. And it makes sense.…

  • A Lot Like Birds: No Place


    “The sign above the door says ‘no solicitors’, whereas the vines along the wall scream ‘no visitors at all…’” These are the words that welcome us to the world of No Place, the third full-length record from progressive hardcore Californians A Lot Like Birds.
