Andrew Weathers Ensemble – Fuck Everybody, You Can Do Anything LP

Well thats encouraging! This is the first time Mr. Weathers & Co. have been properly pressed and the results are pretty killer. Fusing a love for ’00 emo bands, Drake lyrics, and modern experimental composition, “FEYCDA” is an introspective record that in theory sounds weird, but works really well at being equally fun and serious.

A City Safe From Sea “Throw Me Through Walls” LP

I know we’re a bit behind on this record, but it surely deserves a writeup.  I first stumbled across this band because the guitar player/co-frontman is my good friend (and art superstar) Daniel Danger, but I ended up being really impressed with it on its own merits.  You don’t hear a lot of rich, powerful […]

The Get Up Kids “Simple Science” 12″ EP

It’s weird how this music thing works in cycles, it seems almost every band I used to listen to in high school is back in action (I’m looking at you Man or Astroman? and Sunny Day Real Estate).  You can now add The Get Up Kids to that list, as they are about to release […]

Circa Survive “Blue Sky Noise” LP Preorder

It’s been almost three years since the last Circa Survive album, and thank goodness, the new one is almost here.  Judging from the first leaked tune, the band has somehow injected even more power into their sound, practically bursting at the seams.  “Blue Sky Noise” doesn’t come out till 4/20, but you can preorder now, […]
