Tyler Osborne’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

It’s coming to the end of 2013, and it’s been a really weird year. Almost every band and their mother has reunited, pop music is now punk music, and ten year anniversary tours are now a norm within the industry. Admittedly, this wasn’t my favorite year for music. Sure, there have been a lot of […]

Michael Giegerich’s ‘Best of 2013’ In Music

I could preface my list of personal favorite records from 2013 with a stereotypical tangent concerning how difficult it was to handpick each choice, but that would be a completely boldfaced lie. Throughout the year, each one of these albums stood out to me as soon as they emerged from my headphones and latched onto […]

REVIEW: The Rival Mob – Mob Justice

Band: The Rival Mob Album: Mob Justice Genre: Hardcore Label: Revelation Records The Rival Mob is one of those bands in hardcore that has an extreme amount of hype. Like a disturbing amount.
