Rough Dreams (Emo) Release Lyric Video for New Single”Six Sick Strings”

 

Tennessee emo act Rough Dreams has popped back up on our radar and they brought along with them, a fresh lyric video for their newest single,”Six Sick Strings” (tongue twister points: 100)! The track was recorded at the legendary Oneder Studios in Saginaw, Michigan by Nick Diener (The Swellers) and the video was put together by Alan Collins (@hypergiant, not the guy from Lynyrd Skynyrd) with video art provided by Dismay Design. Be sure to catch these cool cats later in the month as they hit the road with UK punks The Run Up on a tight little Southeastern Tour (dates here). Until then, crank up the volume and stream this mutha’ fucker until your ears ring, below!



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.

Short/Fast/Loud: Thurman – A Day Called X

I was immediately struck by how well Portland’s Thurman managed to balance the tone of their songs. Here was a young band—operating in the self-serious arena of indie-punk—that wasn’t afraid to be playful. They were sad, plaintive, and intense—but they didn’t lead you away from the cracks in their facade. “Choices” is the most obvious example, with its low and high vocal performance sounding like a spit-take to make the bassist fuck up his groove. We always talk about how punk rock is a youthful genre, but sometimes, it’s nice to have the evidence on record too.

A Day Called X is five songs of indie-ish, emo-ish, alt-ish punk rock. It reminded me of the lazy-day angst that Title Fight’s Floral Green managed so effortlessly. Both bands pull from the 90s, but the other 90s, the one that lived in the shadow of the Epifat explosion. Jawbreaker, Sunny Day Real Estate, Sleater-Kinney, Dinosaur Jr.—as time marches on, the scales are being evened and the question of what makes punk rock punk has broadened in some ways and focused in others. Thurman carries this legacy forward with stabbing riffs and a chilled-out, catchy approach to melody.

The songs themselves feel dynamic and powerful, a meeting of strong songwriting and thoughtful arrangements. The guitars pop, never resting on their laurels—chugging, riffing, and arpeggiating through their entirety. “Day X” feels positively crushing for any power trio, but its fuzzed out chords are just one piece of the puzzle. Thurman is a mixture of heavy and soft, pop and punk—and it’s in this tight overlap that they craft their atmospheric brand of indie rock.

CHECK OUT: “Choices,” “Day X,” “Man on Mars”



Introducing Post-Emo-Punk Act: Ditz (EP Stream)

I wish I had a better picture to post with this article because frankly the album art for “Earthworm,” the latest EP from New Jersey’s self-proclaimed “post-emo” band Ditz does not do the music justice. The arrangements, harmonies, melodies and lyrics speak to a maturity far more refined than the cartoony imagery above. Halfway through the album’s opener, “Cha-Cha,” I knew I was on to something special and I challenge you to listen to the track without then wanting to finish the EP’s remaining 4 tracks. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Accept the challenge below.



EP Review: Goodland – “Like All Else”

At first, I was hesitant to review this band because of their name. Goodland kind of sounds like a country band, no? (Sorry to say, that’s not my thing.) And you know what? That was a terrible way to approach this EP, as I was pleasantly surprised by this emo-punk band that instantly reminded me of Two Tongues – and is perfect for fans of Say Anything and Saves The Day. With vocals that sound so much like Chris Conley and emo lyrics about relationships, these are four songs that fill a gap in the current emo-punk styled released and are much needed.

The three-piece band from Wisconsin definitely has passion behind everything they do, though they are at their best when the music is faster and fuller, as on “Same Time, Same Place” versus the opening track, “Where You’ve Been.” The almost jangly emo-pop song has a super-catchy chorus and guitar hook that makes it the stand-out track on the EP.

The dual vocals work well, as do the lyrics, which clearly come from the heart. Goodland is a band with a future ahead of them and I am looking forward to hearing more from them, such as, perhaps, a full-length album.

You can listen to the name your price EP below.
