Get those tissue ready. It’s time to say goodbye to Yellowcard. The band has released a heartfelt farwell music video for the single ‘A Place We Set Afire.’ The video features emotional footage of the band, interactions with fans and tear-jerking interviews with lead singer Ryan Key.

The single is off  Yellowcard’s self-titled final album, which released last September. According to the band’s twitter account, the song was inspired by and written for their fans.

Fresh Music Monday: ‘Turn It Up’ -The Wrecks

The fun rumbuctious style, was the first thing that caught my attention.  “Turn It Up” by The Wrecks is catchy mix of nostalgia and youthfulness. The single’s chaotic style–filled with memorable guitar riffs and drum beats– is the perfect mix of indie rock and punk.  The witty/catchy lyrics are unique and one of kind. The band ability to demonstrate their youthful through the fast paced single, definitely makes ‘Turn It Up’ a must listen.

The Wrecks hail from Los Angeles, Ca. The group consists of Nick Anderson (vocals/guitar), Nick Schmidt (guitar), Harrison Nussbaum (guitar), Aaron Kelley (bass), and Billy Nally (drums).

Review: Weezer Goes Pop with Single “Feels Like Summer”

Instead of celebrating the start of spring, Weezer is bring summer early with their new single “Feels Like Summer.” The single’s eccentric pop and synth production is an experimental delight. Fans might not like how it strays away from Weezer’s signature indie rock sound, but I think it’s quite enjoyable. Its catchy and still has those funky Weezer lyrics.

The single is assumed to be the lead single of The Black Album. The follow up album to last years,  White Album. Lead singer, Rivers Cuomo has previously stated that the album would be more gritty, tackling  “more mature topics” and be “less summer day and more winter night.” But with the realize of this single, its feels like that might not be 100% true.

 

 

Album Review:  Mother Mother’s No Culture is The Album You’ve Been Waiting For 

In a sea of infinite amount of music being upload everyday, I still end up feeling like I have nothing left to listen. Time and time again, I crave music that makes me feel alive and soothes my soul. Mother Mother’s newest album No Culture has been the closest answer to my prayers. The album cover, a creepy baby in black ink, makes their music seem dark and deceiving, but its exactly what I’ve been craving. Its the perfect mix of rock, alternative and pop. Its been a while I’ve loved an album from beginning to end. The albums experimentations with sounds and lyrics is different, in a good type of way.
Mother Mother is a Canadian indie rock band based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The band consists of Ryan Guldemond on guitar and vocals, Molly Guldemond on vocals and keyboard, Jasmin Parkin on keyboard and vocals, and Ali Siadat on drums. The album opens up with the fiery single “Free.” The screeching chorus paired with the intense emotional guitar and drum melodies, is a signal of what to expect from the LP. The whole album is intensely fun to listen to with important messages of friendship and the world around us.

Album of Review: Kings of Leon Return with Personal Album, “WALLS”

kings-of-leon-walls-2016-2480x2480Its been a whirlwind career for Nashville rockers, Kings of Leon. People either love them or hate them. The reason for the strange reception is their inconsistency to live up to Only By The Night’s, the album that catapulted the band into mega-stardom.  The 2010’s album Come Around Sundown was hated by fan. Luckily. the band bounced back with 2013’s Mechanical Bull. 

After a three year hiatus, the band is back with their seventh studio album, Walls (We Are Like Love Songs).

Although the album lacks smash hits, it consistently delivers solid emotionally driven songs. The album stays true to the southern indie rock style.The album begins with ‘Waste of Moment, ‘ a heavy guitar single filled the bands signature harmonization.

All tracks written by the band. The entire album feels more personal. Frontman, Caleb Followill whispery voice sounds more relax and mature. The album feels like a reflection of the bands struggles. Continue reading “Album of Review: Kings of Leon Return with Personal Album, “WALLS””

Concert Review: Bastille Bring Wild World to LA

To promote their sophomore album Wild World, Bastille has been very busy performing at some of the first venues they ever played in the U.S. On Monday, Oct. 09, ‘The Born to Be Wild World North American Mini-Tour Tour’ came to an end at LA’s most famous and intimate venue, The Troubador.

In front of super fans and new listeners, the band transformed their set into two marvelous acts. The first act, celebrated of the new album. The band performed Wild World in its entirety.

Humbly, admitting they were still adjusting to the new songs, the band sure knows how to get a crowd to go wild. The band opened with the first single off the new album, Good Grief. Song after song, everyone was sweating and dancing around. The newest album by the band is filled with an enormous amount of variety and unique sounds.

From slow depressing songs like ‘Two Evils’ to infectious songs like’Set Them Off,’ the bands diversity and electric mixing always got the crowd going crazy. The band even gave a special first time performance of the single, ‘Way Beyond.’  Lead singer Dan Smith proclaimed he might forget the lyrics, but the song seemed seamless performed. If your ever considering watching a band live. I definitely recommend Bastille.  Continue reading “Concert Review: Bastille Bring Wild World to LA”
