The Raconteurs: Broken Boy Soldier

I have been revisiting Jack White’s discography over the course of the few days. I remember how much I was into The White Stripes and The Raconteurs with their distinct styles. I thought that Jack White could not do wrong and he still has lived up to that notion. “Broken Boy Soldier” is one of The Raconteurs best songs with its interesting sound and Jack White’s vocals.

Pop Punk Thursdays: Sum 41 – Fat Lip

I remember when I first heard Sum 41’s “Fat Lip” back in high school and how much it made me want to both rebel and start a pop punk band. I succeeded only partway with one of those. “Fat Lip” symbolized a fierce desire not to be like anyone else and not to live a “simple” life. I held on this belief since then and I haven’t settled for any convenience.

The Boxer Rebellion: Keep Me Close

The Boxer Rebellion are finally back with a new single “Keep Me Close” from their upcoming album ‘Ocean By Ocean’. The song has a different sound from their previous works with strings in the background and a prominent bassline. Vocalist Nathan Nicholson’s voice soars over the growing crescendo of the guitars. Check it out above.

Pop Punk Thursdays: Yellowcard – For You, and Your Denial

I have been listening to a lot of my favorite music genre recently and decided to start a recurring theme on this blog. Every Thursday I will (or try) to post a pop punk song by bands that I am a fan of. Starting off this first edition is Yellowcard’s “For You, and Your Denial” off of their seventh album “When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes”. Check it out above.
