REVIEW: The Manges: Plan Honolulu – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Leave a comment

Adobe Photoshop PDFThe new 7″ from The Manges comes from One Chord Wonder records. It’s just two songs but it’s two of the best songs that The Manges have put out in a while. These songs have reenergised how much I like this band, espically ‘I’m Giving Up’. They’re a couple of quick catchy pop punk tunes with a bit of that Queers surfy sound hanging around in there. If you want a copy don’t sleep too long, they’re only doing three hundred of these, fifty of them are a limited edition blue with a different color.

REVIEW: Temporal Sluts/The Leeches: Shitville Confidential

Leave a comment

sluts-leechesTemporal Sluts and The Leeches have teamed up for a split release on One Chord Wonder Records. Both of these bands are ones that I’m not familiar with coming into this. Temporal Sluts throws three fast punk songs at you. They’re a band that play the type of stuff that everyone that’s old probably now says they listened to in high school. The Leeches side is some more straight up punk rock but they’ve got more of a snotty attitude to go with it. The Leeches last two songs ‘Who Do You Think We Are?’ and ‘You Drink Too Much’ are the best on the record. I didn’t care for ‘Who Do You Think We Are?’ at first but by the midway point of the song it had won me over. And ‘You Drink Too Much’ like one of those skate bands from the 90’s where the songs are just fast and catchy.

REVIEW: Lili Champ: XYZ

Leave a comment

CoverLili Champ has release a four song EP on their bandcamp. While it may take me a little bit longer to beable to sing along (these songs are not in English) that isn’t a problem. They’re so catchy you can jam to them even if you don’t know what exactly you’re listening to. Lili Champ is a great band that doesn’t get enough recognition and releases like ‘XYZ’ just keep proving that more people should be listening to this.

REVIEW: Beach Slang: Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?

Leave a comment

Beach SlangEvery few years there seems to be the new band that everybody loses their minds over. This year there seems to be two bands doing that, Earth Girls and Beach Slang. Both great bands and seem to have the stuff to be around. But this is clearly about Beach Slang so let’s talk about them. If you like Mega City Four, Jawbreaker or Superchunk you should be listening to Beach Slang. It’s as simple as that. They’ve got all the great power pop/punk/rock mix that makes those bands great and they do it just as well themselves. Beach Slang isn’t some carbon copy Xerox band though; they’ve got their own thing going. In a time where everybody posts what they’re jamming to on Facebook it’s pretty evident that Beach Slang is a hit, either that or I just hang out with people that have impeccable taste because just about everyone seems to be rocking this band. When you hear one or two people talking up a band you might check it out but Beach Slang seem to be growing a nice little following in a very short period of time and I’ll say that these people know what the fuck is up. This is one of the best EP’s I’ve heard this year and it still gets pretty constant rotation. It’s the kind of record where you get bummed that it’s only four songs, but then it’s cool because you realize you can just listen to it on repeat. Don’t sleep on this one or you’ll miss out on some great stuff.

REVIEW: Utter Failure: Eroding Forces

Leave a comment

CoverUtter Failure didn’t waste much time following up their incredible 7″ EP with their first album. The album is some great straight up punk rock. Fourteen songs that’ll make you feel like you’re fifteen again. I lived the EP so fucking much and the album is just about as good. There’s no filler on this LP it’s all songs that you won’t be skipping anytime soon. I’m on my third or fourth loop of listening to this album and they’re still as great as the first time. If you’re tired of a lot of niche punk bands hit up Utter Failure for an out and out great album.

REVIEW: A Page Of Punk: Fool’s Punk Line

Leave a comment

CoverHoly shit! Drunken Sailor Records scored a big hit with A Page Of Punk. The insanely great band from Tokyo, Japan doesn’t fuck around. Their album is forty nine songs and is still under thirty minutes! These songs are crazy, violent, happy and fast. They’re somewhere between thrash, punk, power violence and pop. They remind me a lot of another band from Japan I like a ton, Razor’s Edge! These songs blaze through in no time but still leave a lasting impression. They’re the type of band that’ll make you have a one man party and cheer you up when you’re down. If you like fast thrashy punk than A Page Of Punk’s Fool’s Punk Line is exactly what you need!
