REVIEW: Half Hearted Hero – Whatever

Artist: Half Hearted Hero Album: Whatever Genre: Pop-Punk Label: Animal Style Records Massachusetts-based band Half Hearted Hero has been slowly making a name for themselves in the pop-punk genre over the past year or so. While I definitely recognized their name, I can honestly say I was not very familiar with their work. Lots of bands […]

REVIEW: Yellowcard – Southern Air

Artist: Yellowcard Album: Southern Air Genre: Pop-punk Label: Hopeless Records Yellowcard is one of the bands that I grew up listening to. And not just, “Oh I love that album Ocean Avenue,” or, “Yeah ‘Only One’ is so good!” No. That is not me at all. Yellowcard was one of those bands when I was younger […]

REVIEW: Real Friends – Acoustic Songs EP

Artist: Real Friends Album: Acoustic Songs EP Genre: Pop-Punk/Acoustic Label: Unsigned Acoustic pop punk releases can be sketchy. There is a large chance of being cliché, annoying, and sounding absurdly whiney. It’s just how it goes, some bands should simply not do acoustic releases. Real Friends is not one of those bands. Hailing from Chicago, […]

LIVE REVIEW + PHOTOS: La Dispute and the Wildlife Tour

Baltimore is a weird place to see shows for me. I live in DC without a car, so getting there is really hard without the help of great friend (A big thanks to my friend McKenzie who let my friends Christina, Luka and I borrow her car. You’re the best.). Some venues in the city are […]
