My Favourite Albums of 2019

There’s a lot that I’ve been grateful for this year, and I am happy to report that 2019 has been a pretty solid year for yours-truly (if not the world at large). I took up running, which meant I took up heavy music again, and I got slightly better at speaking Chinese, even if I… Read More My Favourite Albums of 2019

Record of the Day #15 – Trash Talk, Eyes & Nines

I’ve worked a few jobs across my twenty-two years of living, and my first and favorite role was a relatively straightforward one. Between the ages of thirteen and seventeen, I delivered papers around the neighborhood in which I lived, putting in a shift six days a week so that I could afford music magazines and CDs… Read More Record of the Day #15 – Trash Talk, Eyes & Nines

Record of the Day #10 – Trap Them, Sleepwell Deconstructor

I’ll have to keep this one brief, like the actual record itself. Trap Them’s debut LP Sleepwell Deconstructor clocks in at just over twenty-one thunderous minutes, twelve tracks of gritty hardcore punk/grindcore/hardcore. However you want to classify it, it shreds, a devastating record produced by Converge’s own Kurt Ballou. This thing is fierce, and its a record… Read More Record of the Day #10 – Trap Them, Sleepwell Deconstructor

The Wonder Years – No Closer To Heaven (Review)

Since first hearing The Upsides some five years ago, in an old friends bedroom, The Wonder Years have always been a constant in my musical life, each of their records an anchor to a particular period of time, realigning with each new release. The bands second record was for the angst-riddled teenager I was back then, hating… Read More The Wonder Years – No Closer To Heaven (Review)

Donovan Wolfington – How To Treat The Ones You Love (Review)

Fuzzy and infectious second from the best named band in whatever genre Donovan Wolfington are right now. I can’t think of many bands hailing from New Orleans, and even if I could, Donovan Wolfington would probably be better than them. The Louisiana natives caused ripples within their respective field with the release of DIY debut Stop… Read More Donovan Wolfington – How To Treat The Ones You Love (Review)

Möngöl Hörde – Möngöl Hörde (Self-Titled) [Review]

I’ll listen to pretty much anything with Frank Turner’s name on it. He could play two seconds of the triangle on a twenty-minute track and I’d likely lap it up. I was a latecomer to the long-gone Million Dead, finding them long after their split after discovering Turner’s solo material, but I loved what I… Read More Möngöl Hörde – Möngöl Hörde (Self-Titled) [Review]

Lung Season – 2014 (Review)

Lung Season are the latest band to sign to American label Giant MKT, and they’re set to release their debut 7” 2014 on March 11th, although it’s currently available to stream here. Whereas the releases name may be considered unimaginative the three tracks that 2014 contains are brilliantly unrestrained, brimming with enough energy and potential… Read More Lung Season – 2014 (Review)

The Hotelier – Home, Like Noplace Is There (Review)

There’s a reason that Home, Like Noplace Is There is one of the years most anticipated releases, and thankfully the hype that surrounds it is entirely justified by the nine tracks that feature. Tiny Engines have a reputation for only releasing great music and The Hotelier’s sophomore release is probably the best they’ve put out,… Read More The Hotelier – Home, Like Noplace Is There (Review)

Modern Baseball – You’re Gonna Miss It All (Review)

Sports is an album that I’ve listened to religiously since its release in 2012 and for good reason. Modern Baseball’s debut full-length remains one of the most relatable and intriguing releases of recent memory, and expectations were high for its follow-up. As expected You’re Gonna Miss It All doesn’t disappoint, and if you’re yet to hear… Read More Modern Baseball – You’re Gonna Miss It All (Review)
