Jail Socks (pop-punk) streaming new album “It’s Not Forever”

North Carolina pop-punks Jail Socks are streaming their new album It’s Not Forever. Released via No Sleep Records, the new album features six very catchy pop-punk tunes. “Freshmen Year” is my favorite track on the album, it did a great job of bringing me back to my adventures in “higher” learning and reminding me of my age.

Check out the new music below.

This is the first new music from Jail Socks since their split with Placeholder back in 2018. If you’re a fan of Saves the Day or adulting phase Blink 182 (that’s prior to the aliens and post The Mark, Tom and Travis Show, for those keeping score), you will like these guys.

Odd Robot last released Amnesiatic back in August of last year. These guys remind me of Alkaline Trio a little, so if you’re into them, check these guys out.

Finnish melodic-punk outfit Neverlearn is streaming their new album We Want More. The album is being released via Fast Decade Records (Finland), Milestone Sound (Japan), and Punk & Disorderly Records (Canada). The new album features ten all new tracks, I must admit I was thoroughly impressed with this one. I particularly enjoy the track “Pest Control”, the intro reminds me of something you might hear from Propaghandi before the song settles into a much more mellow tone, just a great song from start to finish.

Check out the awesome new tunes below.

This is the first new music from Neverlearn since their EP Start Tomorrow, which came out back in 2016. If you’re a fan of Much The Same or Downway, these guys are for you.



Album Review: Teenage Bottlerocket: “Teenage Bottlerocket vs. Human Robots”

What were you doing in your spare time in 7th Grade? I was desperately trying (and failing!) to learn blink-182 and My Chemical Romance songs on bass guitar, and wondering why all the cool kids wouldn’t be my friends on MySpace. I’m guessing most of you weren’t releasing your first split 7-inch on Fat Wreck Chords like Milo Carlisle has done. As the son of Teenage Bottlerocket’s Ray Carlisle, he’s already spent years being surrounded by the best teachers in punk rock, and boy does it show on these couple tracks.

The first two tracks on this split 7-inch will be familiar to big Bottlerocket fans. Track 1: “Olivia Goes to Bolivia” first appeared on a flexi-disk for New Noise Magazine in February 2019. Bassist Miguel Chen wrote the track about his baby daughter Olivia (who features on the track too – cute!). Track 2: “Everything to Me” appears on the bands’ newest album, Stay Rad. Both tracks are adorable odes to the band members’ offspring – fitting for the record – as well as super-catchy, punk anthems, as expected from Teenage Bottlerocket.

Let’s face it though, this record is all about Human Robots. As Ray said in the press release for the record, “It wasn’t hard getting his band together, because Milo plays all the instruments and sings on the two songs he wrote. I guess it’s a one-man band (yes, he has no friends).” Which is a pretty INSANE accolade for anyone, let alone a pre-teen in my opinion (the one-man band thing, not the no friends thing. Having no friends is an easy accomplishment, lemme tell you). 

“Step on ‘Em All” is 45-seconds of pure old-skool punk rawk rage. With thrashing guitars and angry AF lyrics, this track sounds like a cross between the Ramones and late 80s NYHC.  

“I Want to Hang Out With You” could be a Bottlerocket song. They probably wish it was a Bottlerocket song, but Milo got there first. It’s a simple, catchy memorable punk rock song with a chorus that’ll have you singing along as soon as you’ve heard it. Also, you can only imagine Ray’s face when he first heard his young son sing the “I wanna make out with you/ I wanna get expelled with you” lyrics of the chorus. 

It really is incredible that the little dude is so talented at a young age – these songs rock HARD. There should be a few Fat Wreck bands watching their backs right now – Milo has the potential to take over the genre in a few years.

You can buy the 7-inch in the Fat Wreck Chords store here, or stream/buy it on Bandcamp here. Best $5 you’ll have spent in a long time. 

5/5 Stars



New Music: Anti-Flag release lyric video for “Christian Nationalist”

Hey Anti-Flag fans…they’ve got some new music for your listening enjoyment!

The band have released a stand-alone single and accompanying lyric video for a brand-new track called “Christian Nationalist.” We’re pretty sure it’s a protest song. Check it out below!

“Christian Nationalist” follows up their last release, Live Volume 2, which was released a couple months back on A-F Records.



New Music: Donaher (NH pop punk) – “Before Anyone Else”

Hailing from the occasionally-mean streets of Manchester, New Hampshire – which is coincidentally about fifteen minutes north of the occasionally-mean streets that yours truly grew up on – Donaher are a band that you should probably know about, especially if you’re nostalgic for the glory days of mid-1990s power pop. Case in point: I once saw them open for Smoking Popes, and their latest album has a song that features vocals from Matt Pryor, so that should give you a pretty accurate picture of their wheelhouse.

Anyway, the Granite Staters have got a new song available for your listening enjoyment. It’s called “Before Anyone Else,” and you can check it out below.

“Before Anyone Else” exists as a standalone single. Their full-length album, I Swear My Love Is True, was released back in 2017 on Dodgeball Records.



New Music: Lucero – “Before The Ghosts” and “PBS – Bluegrass Underground”

Lots of cool news from the Lucero camp this week, so I thought I’d wrap it up in one tidy post. First and foremost, the Memphis rockers kicked off their three-week US tour with such varied acts as Vandoliers, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, and Rhode Island’s The Huntress And Holder Of Hands. Check out those dates here.

Next up, PBS unveiled the band’s performance for their Bluegrass Underground series. It was filmed at The Caverns in Pelham, Tennessee. If you’re not familiar, The Caverns is exactly what you think; an underground music venue set in a cavern deep below the Cumberland Mountains. Cool! Anyway, you can stream the band’s unique performance here.

Last but certainly not least, the band put out a new digital-only release yesterday. It’s called Before The Ghosts: Acoustic Demos and Other Ideas from Among the Ghosts, and as you might imagine, it consists of demos and reworked versions of tracks that appeared on last year’s Among The Ghosts. It’s definitely one for the hardcore fans, but it’s a pretty cool listen as to how the proverbial sausage was made. Check it out here.
