REVIEW: Sorority Noise – ‘It Kindly Stopped For Me’

Artist: Sorority Noise Album: It Kindly Stopped For Me EP Genre: Acoustic, Indie Label: Topshelf Records In these four songs lie a very modest ancillary of Sorority Noise – one we saw emerge out of their last record Joy, Departed.

REVIEW: Sorority Noise – ‘Joy, Departed’

Artist: Sorority Noise Album: Joy, Departed Genre: Emo, Garage Rock Label: Topshelf Records Joy, Departed doesn’t sound like a Sorority Noise record, and that’s a good thing. The band’s debut record–the aptly titled Forgettable–is a fun listen with little substance beyond a few catchy choruses and well-written one-liner lyrics. Where Forgettable serves as the polar […]

Anyone who is connected to the alternative and indie rock worlds with even the faintest of interest no doubt failed to make it out of 2014 without hearing The Hotelier‘s phenomenal album, Home Like NoPlace Is There.

Sorority Noise Announce New Record ‘Joy, Departed’

Sorority Noise, the Connecticut indie-punk band featuring Old Gray’s Cameron Boucher, have built up a pretty ridiculous amount of stream from their Broken World Media debut, Forgettable. The band’s first record is full of catchy punk songs, similar to Modern Baseball and The Front Bottoms, with a poorly-produced charm that sets them apart from their peers. After […]
