Album Review: Lost Love – “Sparkles”

Posted by Bizarro Dustin on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 3:45 PM (PST)

Do you like your punk rock explosive and exciting? What about punk with a healthy sense of melody? And lastly, do you enjoy punk with choruses to shout your heart out along to? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll want to check out Lost Love and their debut album Sparkles.

The Montreal quartet kicks things off with “Rooftops/Fireworks”, which is explosive, melodic, and delivers on the catchy chorus that was previously alluded to. It also happens to lay down the groundwork for the entire album which generally follows the same structural formula. There’s a moment roughly halfway through “Rooftops/Fireworks” when the band declares “nothing’s left except sincerity”. A simple statement, but it’s a powerful one and could very easily be the album’s motto. Lost Love hasn’t been around for too long, but Sparkles captures them doing what they know how to do best: playing their hearts out.

Which leads me to the most remarkable thing about Sparkles: the originality of the song compositions. Sure, the songs follow an archetypical verse-chorus-verse set up, but Lost Love largely avoids sounding exactly like the bands that (presumably) influenced them. This melodic style of punk rock has been around for at least twenty years (though I’m sure that’s up for debate), so it’s common for today’s bands to take a couple of albums to really find their own groove. However, this isn’t much of a problem for Lost Love. Sparkles fits in comfortably with other punk albums without blatantly mimicking Goddamnit.

Is Sparkles a wholly original punk rock album? Not exactly. Is it a sincere punk rock album from a young, up-and-coming band worth paying attention to? Most definitely. You can give it a listen below.

Oh The Humanity! offer free download of new song “Stay Pissed”

Posted by jokerx324 on Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 1:38 PM (PST)

Massachusetts punks Oh The Humanity! have released a politically charged new song titled “Stay Pissed.” Here’s what the band had to say about the track, which you can stream and/or download for free below:

“In the spirit of the movement to organize against police brutality and misuse of power we decided to record and release this song on its own. Like some of us, you or someone you love may have been brutalized, harassed, intimidated, or disrespected by a law enforcement official. The very people whose job it is to protect us. This isn’t to say that all Cops are bad or evil, they aren’t, but now is the time to make our voices heard and let the world know that we aren’t going to take abuse from our protectors anymore. Here’s our contribution.”

Oh The Humanity! released their debut full-length Carry Me Home earlier this year. If you wanna check that out, it’s available to stream/purchase on their Bandcamp page.
