It becomes difficult to point out the standouts in the track listing due to the fact that each song on the album is split into sub-songs of their own, however, never taking advantage of the time they are given, Club Night fills each corner of the time they are given with beautiful instrumentation and lovely vocals to accompany.
Canadian emo/pop-punk band, PUP, have released their third full length album titled Morbid Stuff, a title that more than describes this album as a whole. Within the opening moments of the album, PUP delivers a lyrically angst filled with ridiculously dark and somewhat humorous situations the protagonist gets involved in.
“GØGGS’ second album, “Pre-Strike Sweep” is a retro throwback to how garage rock
used to be.”
Los Angeles surf rock band, La Luz, is back with their third album titled Floating Features. Mixing in some lush 1960’s pop guitars, grooving bass, and tight drums make for a very relaxing and mellow listen. La Luz knows fairly well that they are not treading new waters or even adding a new twist to the surf rock genre itself, instead they fully embrace the time they are given to bask in the sunshine.
Sheffield’s Arctic Monkeys finally make their long awaited comeback with the highly
anticipated Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino. Avoiding releasing any single prior to release and only offering the most brief teases, Arctic Monkeys opted to let their fans dive into these oddly titled songs with a complete fresh perspective. With AM being five years ago, do the Arctic Monkeys successfully return the scene with ease and wit that we’ve come to expect?
It’s finally here. After so much anticipation in their hometown, and a impressive sold out album release show at the Lowbrow Palace in El Paso, Texas, Pilots of Venus have released their debut album entitled Lady Astronaut. This is an impressive debut LP. Right from the opening seconds, Pilots of Venus essentially stomp as hard as possible on the gas and embark in break-neck speed trip through 90’s inspired alternative rock. Taking cues from Pixies, Nirvana, and punk rock in general, this nine-track list is incredibly astonishing as well as nostalgic in a sense.
Vexxed is a trio from Philadelphia. Within the five track setlist of this EP, you will find very grooving bass riffs, drum beats that you would normally only find in hip-hop or rap, synths and guitars that resemble new wave, and vocals that drone out to create a very dreamy atmosphere.
