There were so many albums and EPs released throughout 2023 that we’ve loved here at AltCorner. So we asked our team to let us know what their favourite albums or EPs that were released in 2023. Here writer and photographer Vicki narrows down her top picks!
The baby emo within me was very excited when I was asked to review the new BOYS LIKE GIRLS album SUNDAY AT FOXWOODS. Growing up religiously hearing The Great Escape and Love Drunk, I couldn’t wait to hear what their first album in eleven years had to hold. Like most bands do, they’ve matured!
Cyan Kicks release new album I Never Said 4ever this month and we had a listen.
Hot Mulligan’s third full length offering Why Would I Watch sees them just as aggressive and just as mathy and just as emo as ever. And the song titles are still needlessly long.
Before you dig into the new album The Jaws Of Life from Pierce The Veil, you’ll do well to remember one sentiment: progression is a journey, not a destination.
Last month, Young Culture released their newest album You Had to Be There! Full of fun and original tracks, we caught up with Alex Magnan to talk all about the music and his favourite fantasy kingdom.
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.
On new album Hell Is In Your Head, Senses Fail tackle themes of mortality and fatherhood on the backdrop of two iconic pieces of literature, T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land (which influences the first 6 tracks) and Walt Whitman’s ‘To Think Of Time’ (the final 5).
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
