REVIEW: Not Yet!: It’s A Small World, Alcohol

Leave a comment

CoverThis is Not Yet!’s first release, and it’s a pretty damn impressive one. You get pop punk in the vein of Rational Anthem, Dear Landlord and Off With Their Heads. The only bad thing I can say about this is its only four songs, way less than I want. Every one of these songs are great, they’re written well and played just as good. The man behind the band Jose, is a pretty great dude and I think it really comes through listening to these songs. I’d already rank Not Yet! up pretty high on the list of currently running pop punk bands, and as you may know that’s a tough list to get highly ranked on. You can get the CD from SP Records and if you’re a sick fuck that likes tapes John Wilkes Booth Records has them too. If you like pop punk such as the above mentioned bands then don’t sleep on Not Yet!

1. East Bay Breeze
2. Pointless
3. Cincinnati Agony
4. Westbound Sign

REVIEW: V/A: Sea Creatures No. 1

Leave a comment

sea_creaturesThis is the first compilation/four band split 7″ in a series from Merman Records. If the first volume is a good indication this should be a great series, however this did come out a while ago and I haven’t seen a second one, hopefully we get one soon. We’ve got bands from all over here New Brunswick and Toronto are represented on Side A, LA and the Windy City on the B. Before we even start on the music that’s in this thing you’re going to notice the cover, it’s pretty great artwork done by billythespacekid.com I fucking love the cover art for this. Two of these bands I’m real familiar with, the other two, not so much. The first one is one I know well, Fear of Lipstick they’ve got a fast catchy song pop punk that I think is the best one on this thing. The Roman Line is a band I hadn’t listened to too much of, this song is really good though. It reminds me of the Slow Death a little bit. Regal Beagle is the other band on here I know well, very Queers/Ramones type surf pop punk stuff. This song is no exception; it’s a surf pop party song, a lot of fun and pretty great. And closing out is The Neutron Bombs, a band that I don’t think I’d ever even heard before. They sound like a band that’s been around way longer than they have, like someone that should be touring with The Damned. The song they have on here is pretty decent, it’s my least favorite on this thing but it’s still really good. So through and through you’ve got four really great songs for one small price with a great package, you really can’t go wrong with this thing.

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.

 

1. Plan Honolulu
2. I’m Giving Up

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.

1. Hasta Pronto
2. Andes
3. El Ancla
4. En Órbita
