Video: The Scandals frontman Jared Hart plays acoustic version of “Allnighters”

Earlier this year, Jared Hart from New Jersey punk band The Scandals released an acoustic split with The Gaslight Anthem‘s Brian Fallon. More recently, Mr. Hart stopped by Bouncing Souls guitarist Pete Steeinkopf’s Little Eden recording studio in Asbury Park to record a stripped-down acoustic session for the Red Bull Music Channel (full performance premiering tomorrow, Dec. 6th).

Here’s what he had to say about the experience:

“Recording at Little Eden was sort of unreal. It’s a place that houses a band that, growing up, was so important and influential to us. Then we had the chance to run the same lines and the same amps as the Bouncing Souls. You really can’t help feeling overly creative in that space – it just overflows.

With Brian and Pete, they both get it. They understand and get it in the same way that we do, with what’s going on within the realm of our genre today. They are in it for the long haul, and to share a mutual respect for the work that they do, as well as what we do, is something I value greatly.”

You can watch a video of Jared performing an acoustic rendition of The Scandals’ song “Allnighters” at Pete’s studio below.

The original, full-band version of the track appeared on The Scandals’ “Trenchknife” EP, which was released (for free download) in 2012 on Death To False Hope Records.

EP Review: The Architects – “Border Wars (Episode 1)”

If I could only use a single word to describe the music on The ArchitectsBorder Wars (Episode 1), (the first installment of a planned five part series), it would be “swagger”.

I don’t mean it in the same sense that the kids do these days when they say “swag” and then instagram a mirror shot of themselves in a brand new baseball cap. No, I mean it in the same sense that one would mean when discussing Mick Jagger, or possibly even Paul Westerberg. The Architects have no shame in flaunting their dirty rock and roll influences all over Border Wars, and they make it work from them. From the chorus of EP opener “Peter Fonda” to the lead guitar of closing track “The Shivers”, Border Wars is rock and roll stripped down to its purest elements. It’s hard to believe that the three key members of the Architects were once known as the ska-punk band The Gadjits.

Musically, Border Wars is pretty tight, and there are only six songs so it never outstays its welcome. There are a couple of lyrical stumbles (the “get money, get paid” line from “I Chose Wrong” in particular is kind of silly), but the band boasts these lyrics with such confidence that it’s easy to overlook and just have fun with it. That said, the music makes up only half of Border Wars. The other half of the release takes the form of a comic book, also titled Border Wars, and it’s much less exciting than the music.

The artwork has a dirty feel to it much like the songs, but that’s pretty much where the similarities stop. Maybe it’s just because the full story isn’t presented in Border Wars (Episode 1) (and I’m completely willing to give it the benefit of the doubt), but everything is muddy- there’s plenty of action (an execution, a young lady gets hit by a car, the town Sheriff slits another woman’s throat), but there’s not enough exposition. There’s no real reason yet to care about why these things are happening. Not to mention that the events of the story don’t ever seem to correspond with the lyrics of the songs- which begs the question: How is this even a concept album?

It’s entirely possible that as Border Wars progresses everything will fall into place. The lyrics and music will be reflected within the characters and their decisions, and that in the end it will become a very engrossing story on the same level as Tommy, Purple Rain, or (to use a more contemporary example), American Idiot. But for now trying to understand how the music and the comic work together is confusing, coming off more similarly to the stories of The Amory Wars or 21st Century Breakdown. There’s still hope that the remaining four volumes remedy this problem. Even if they don’t, at least the music is good.

You can stream Border Wars (Episode 1) in its entirety right here.
