Stream Crossfire Collision’s (melodic punk) new EP “Have Hart”

Tomorrow South African melodic punk band Crossfire Collision will be releasing a brand new gem of an EP titled “Have Hart” and we couldn’t be more pleased to premiere the entire thing for you right now, right here.

The band had this to say about the release:

“Two years in the making, “Have Hart” features a six-way mix of ear-punching, gut-wrenchingly melodic punk rock (and some acoustic stuff – laaaadies). The EP is dedicated to our brother-in-arms, Craig Hart, who joined our family, played bass like a demon, and had the energy of a macaque. He tragically passed away after recording this EP, and we miss his charcoal-infused foghorn of a voice every day. Special thanks to Jarred Ronnenbergh, Pete Grey and Mork Twynam for helping out with gang vocals, shits and giggles, and helping us drink all our beer.”

“Have Hart” is the band’s third official release, and a follow-up to 2013 full-length “Panic Face” (available online – so, literally, everywhere).

Album Review: Problem Daughter – “Fits of Disorganized Boredom”

I love Problem Daughter. They’re one of those rare bands that come out of nowhere and slap you in the face with their art, daring you to doubt all the good music being made in this big old world. They come from Salt Lake City and their album Fits of Disorganized Boredom is one of the best things I’ve heard in a long time. It has the relentless hooks of Junior Battles, coupled with the more mature melodic punk stylings of The Flatliners, all fit into the loose mold of post-hardcore song structure– where songs have parts, but aren’t necessarily beholden to verse/chorus.

It’s exciting, volatile music that is immediately arresting because its weirdness relative to its genre. Hooks are everywhere, but they’re packed into an odd package of transitions and prominent bass and busy guitar work. First song, “O Bother, Where Art Thou?,” is one of the more traditionally structured of the bunch, and one of the best. Its chorus is massive and meaty and falls off the tongue as soon as it falls in the ears. “Alda, Small Things” has rushed vocal lines over electric guitars along with a busy bassline that works in tandem with the guitars. Gang vocals layer over the main line. Lyrics work themselves up into screams. It reminds me of Morning Glory, with all of their extravagances, steeped in the world of pop punk. “My Other House Is a Meth Lab” is one of the weirder tracks, transitioning into some light reggae at one point, before going back into some darker punk rock brooding and then into a big shout-along chorus. It’s a highlight on an album of highlights.

Crazy fun music is Problem Daughter’s game and I could probably dedicate time to what I like about each song and the review would run to novella length and no one would read it. So, I’m going to talk about the elephant in the room real quick, because the elephant is an incredible jam that stands as an instant classic. “Like a Dog.” Holy shit, “Like a Dog.” The song begins with a thumping bass line and sparse guitar tones before transitioning into the songs meaty riff. The drums keep things steady, but also set the tone of walking bravely toward transcendence. It’s almost the beat of a slow march. Undeniably the masterpiece of Fits of Disorganized of Boredom, “Like a Dog” encompasses dark, confessional lyrics put to ascending melodies and one of the finest choruses I’ve heard in a long time.

There’s thousands of cities out there, and there’s even more punks. These people, who believe in the power of DIY, the power of music, and most of all the power of community– these people are the ones making the art we consume and love. They’re centered around local scenes across the world. Check your backyard, you might have some pretty great stuff being born under the radar as we speak. This makes punk self-sustaining. It’s rock music put back into the hands of whoever wants to make it. And in Problem Daughter’s case, it’s wild and catchy and ambitious. But make no mistake, it all comes from somewhere.

Ryan Kerr hails from Fort Wayne, Indiana and on February 28th he’ll be releasing a new full-length titled “Live Well” that is one of the more honest and beautiful albums I’ve seen come out of the americana/folk-punk genre in quite some time. Just give the song “A Ghost (While I Wait)” a listen below and see if you disagree.

Problem Daughter sign to Dying Scene Records for release of new album “Fits Of Disorganized Boredom”

Four days ago I received an email from a band I’d never heard of imploring me to give their newly recorded album a listen. It’s by no means an uncommon occurrence and for perhaps the ten-thousandth time I dutifully plugged in my headphones, clicked a play button and prepared to halfheartedly listen while I moved on to the next email. Thirty seconds in I had to stop typing and turn up the volume. By the end of the first song I suspected I had stumbled onto something special and by the third song I was sending the album off to a few trusted DS reviewers demanding they check it out. When the sixth song literally gave me goosebumps I decided I desperately wanted to put the album out on Dying Scene Records.

So, today, after a flurry of phone calls and emails, it is with great pleasure that I announce Salt Lake City punk act Problem Daughter will be releasing their sophomore album Fits Of Disorganized Boredom through Dying Scene Records on February 24th.

In regards to the band’s sound, think the melodic earnestness of a Flatliners meets Banner Pilot but with the grand, incendiary arrangements of Morning Glory. Confused? Just judge for yourself by streaming the album’s first track “O Bother, Where Art Though?” below.

Bridge City Sessions debuts with live performances of Western Settings/ Gentlemen Prefer Blood

Newly minted YouTube channel Bridge City Sessions has posted some killer footage of SoCal melodic punks Western Settings and Gentlemen Prefer Blood.

The channel was formed by Portland’s Davey Death Ray, formerly of Absent Minds and Danger Death Ray and all around presence in the PDX punk scene. He had this to say on his new project:

“Bridge City Sessions is a relatively new project concocted by myself and a few fellow musician friends. Basically, it’s a YouTube show where we capture live, in-studio performances by musicians. The idea is that exposure for up-and-coming bands can be difficult to come by and we want to offer another platform for musicians to have their music heard. We strive for a professional presentation all around in order to allow the bands to be able to showcase their specific brand of boss tuneage.”

You can check out the video here and download the recorded tracks at bandcamp.
