Silverstein: This Is How The Wind Shifts

Post-hardcore has always been a genre that I have not really listened to.  Before I considered the screaming vocals a bit too much to sit down and listen to.

Foals: Balloons

I completely forgotten how much I enjoy Foals’ first album “Antidotes”. Its mix of math rock and dance rock work incredibly well. The album from beginning to end is eclectic and energetic. One of the best tracks on the album is ‘Balloons’ with its catchy chorus and intricate guitar work. Check it out.

The Antlers: Palace

I just heard that The Antlers were releasing a new album in June entitled “Familiars”. I have been patiently waiting for this band to release new music for a while. Their last record “Burst Apart” was absolutely brilliant. The first single from “Familiars” is ‘Palace’ which is very emotionally charged like a lot of the […]
