Alternative GENRE ARCHIVES

My Kid Brother – ‘Happy.Mad.Weird.Sad’

On October 7 My Kid Brother released their very first album. After fully forming in 2018, the band have been jamming, gigging, and only gracing our ears with EPs. Four long years later, they finally released Happy.Mad.Weird.Sad. 

The Dangerous Summer – ‘Coming Home’

Since their 2018 self-titled comeback, The Dangerous Summer have not let up. In a four-year period, new record Coming Home is their third full length. Impressive, and that’s ignoring the 2020 EP All That Is Left Of The Blue Sky.

VRSTY – Welcome Home

VRSTY have played around in the genre-bending arena with huge new album Welcome Home, to varying results.

An interview with Ali Tabatabaee of Zebrahead!

With their new EP III releasing on November 26th, we had a chat with Ali Tabatabaee (vocals) of Zebrahead to get the lowdown on the band's new music and new chapter!

Justin Courtney Pierre ‘Ghost World’ EP review

Justin Courtney Pierre has been incredibly busy this year. New EP Ghost World is his third of 2021, boasting five new tracks for a hungry audience.

Real Friends – ‘Torn In Two’ [review]

When I first heard of Real Friends I was fresh to pop punk. I liked All Time Low, As It Is, Green Day and My Chemical Romance. I found their first two albums to be too brash and bordering on unlistenable. By the time Composure dropped I’d been to Slam Dunk Festival and, though I still believe their first two records to be poor, that third album really made me fall for them. ‘Stand Steady; is still their best song.

Hawthorne Heights – The Rain Just Follows Me

Hawthorne Heights have never really slowed since their inception. Their eighth full length, The Rain Just Follows Me, shows that the band still have a lot to say.

Myles Kennedy – ‘The Ides Of March’

Myles Kennedy seems to have found some miraculous way to straddle his three globetrotting projects: mega-selling Alter Bridge and Slash albums alongside this solo project. Beyond a shadow of a doubt he is the most notable vocalist in rock today, and for good reason. Those vocals combine with his own delectable guitarwork to make solo album number two a welcome addition to his ample discography.

The Spill Canvas – Conduit

The Spill Canvas have made a comeback into what is a very different music world, but new album Conduit sounds like they don’t give a damn.

Silverstein Out Of This World (episode 3: the conclusion) review

Waking up in a field full of alpacas with an acoustic guitar after being kidnapped by aliens and forced to play Discovering The Waterfront front to back – this is where the third and final episode of Silverstein’s Out Of This World virtual concert series kicks off.

Silverstein – Out Of This World (episode 2) review

In an attempt to bring you the fastest written review in history, fuelled by gig adrenaline and a singular Carlsberg, here is the lowdown on Silverstein’s Out Of This World, episode 2.

Lonely The Brave ‘The Hope List’ review

Lonely The Brave’s new record The Hope List is a very pleasing listen, acting as my introduction to a very talented outfit at a perfect point; the band are reborn with new vocalist Jack Bennett and a new sense of drive and direction.

Cheap Meat – ‘People Are The Worst’

There’s no doubt Cheap Meat can write fun, catchy songs you’d expect from the likes of Weezer and Bowling For Soup. Their new record, aptly titled People Are The Worst, exemplifies this brilliantly.

Hands Like Houses – Hands Like Houses

If a band changes their sound, it’s always called “evolving”. However, evolution is a species adapting to its surroundings and becoming better at surviving. What do we call it when a band changes and the quality has regressed?

Calva Louise – Popurri

Calva Louise have amassed themselves tonnes of praise, high profile fans and a decent following. However, new EP Popurri is nowhere near as eclectic or unique as people would have you believe.
