Music Video: Gameface – “Always On”

Posted by Kaylee McNeil on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 7:28 PM (PST)

SoCal rockers Gameface have just launched their latest music video, which is for their track “Always On” from their sixth full-length album Now Is What Matters Now. You can check it out below.

Now Is What Matters Now was released earlier this year via Equal Vision Records. Since then, however, the group has also put out a 7″ record titled Regular Size, which was launched on October 7th, also on Equal Vision.

On the video, vocalist and guitarist Jeff Caudill commented:

One of the best memories of writing this album was all the nights spent hammering out the songs. There’s a certain electricity in the air when things fall into place – when everyone is on. Director George Nienhuis did an incredible job of capturing us rocking like nobody’s watching.

EP Review: Wolves at Bay – “When I’m Dead”

Posted by Seaniam on Thursday, October 23, 2014 at 4:34 PM (PST)

Wolves at Bay recently released three brand new songs in the form of a limited cassette release through Up All Night Records titled When I’m Dead. The opening song, “Tried to Fix”, makes use of some clean cut and tuned vocals and harmonies, there’s some big melodic chord progressions and the usual stuff here… but there’s no urgency or passion and it all comes off pretty uninspired.

“Nothing Will Work” is equally yawn worthy. The repeated vocal “you could never get your…/ you could never get your…/ you could never get your” just drags on. The song lacks any build up or pay off, the band has no surprises up their sleeves. The final track, “Sincerely, Your Ex-Lover”, is almost 7 minutes long and feels like a lost opportunity to explore or branch out but instead it is just a 7 minute song. It’s slower, longer and just as ambiguous as the previous two songs. An attempt at post-rock with screaming and weird swooshy noises just comes across as generic and half baked.

There’s nothing particularly wrong with what Wolves at Bay have made here, everything is recorded and mixed well enough and there’s an equal balance between instruments and performances. Occasional use of acoustic guitar, ambient lead tones and effects add a bit of colour and the song writing is reminiscent of Emery/Make Do and Mend/Thrice etc but lacks the power and impact of those bands. Wolves at Bay sound too much like a lot of other bands and this lack of uniqueness makes it all the more forgettable.

Skip this one unless you’re curious or already a fan.

1 / 5 Stars

When I’m Dead is available for free download via the Animal Style Records Bandcamp page, which you can find right here.

Other than playing shows here and there, San Jose’s Shinobu has been relatively quiet since the release of 2009′s Strange Spring Air (most likely in no small part due to guitarist Mike Huguenor’s involvement with his other bands such as Hard Girls, Classics of Love, and, most recently, The Bruce Lee Band), but now the band is gearing up to release a new full length album. Titled 10 Thermidor, the 11 track album will be co-released by Really Records and Lauren Records.

To give you a taste of what’s to come, the band has released the album’s first single “Culture, Inc.”, which you can check out here.

Rather than going the tradition route of release, both labels are doing a fundraising pre-order for 10 Thermidor: aother new song will be released at $1000, a third song will be released once they raise $2000, and at $3000 the entire album will be available to download for free via Quote Unquote Records. You can get your pre-orders / donations in here and here.
