Review: Senses Fail – Renacer

The English translation of the word “renacer” is “to be reborn.” That said, Senses Fail couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate title for their fifth full-length album. Renacer is different in almost every way when compared to their previous work. Lyrically, this album is their most “happy” … it’s not an album full of songs about substance […]

Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, and Icona Pop at The Orpheum

This had been a show I was excited for for some time. After seeing Passion Pit at Lollapalooza this past summer, I just knew I had to hit them up any time they came to Wisconsin. They could have had Nickelback and Creed as the two opening bands, and I still would have waited in […]

Half Hearted Hero – Whatever

Well, here is my first album review of 2013. This one I was REALLY excited about, as they are arguably my favorite “up and coming” pop punk band right now. I absolutely loved their full length (Defining. Refining) and latest EP (Running Water), so this new release was high on my list of most anticipated […]

Hostage Calm – “Please Remain Calm”

  Hostage Calm’s last album was good, not great. It had some jams on it, such my personal favorites “Ballots/Stones” and “Rebel Fatigues”. However, this album is going to be the one that propels the band to new heights. They’ve always been a band about progression, and it seems as though they’ve found their niche […]

Dead Sara – “Dead Sara”

When I first heard Dead Sara on a local metal/hard rock radio station, I was caught off guard. I don’t listen to any nu-metal anymore, but when I was channel surfing, I couldn’t help but stop when I heard this band. The song was “Weatherman” by this band called Dead Sara, who I’ve never heard […]

State Champs – Overslept EP

  Here we have a new release from pop punkers, State Champs. Now, to be honest, I’ve sort of strayed away from the ‘new’ pop punk scene recently, but I’m always open to checking out bands that have been getting some praise like these guys have with this EP. Right away, I was unimpressed. The […]

Popeska — Karmameter

Back in July I wrote up a quick synopsis of Popeska as an artist, and showcased just a few of his many free tracks from his soundcloud. That article was sparked by the announcement by none other than Wolfgang Gartner himself, that he had signed the budding artist to his Kindergarten label. Monday marked Popeska’s first […]

Lollapalooza 2012!

So this was the first year that I attended Lollapalooza, the annual music festival held in Grant Park in Chicago. From hearing things from people who have been there and watching videos of past performances on YouTube and Palladia, I couldn’t wait. I was trying not to wish summer by, but it was hard not […]

The Offspring at The Eagles Ballroom

The Offspring is a band that I’ve had the chance to see many times before, but never took advantage of the opportunity. So of course when the Rave announced the punk rock legends would be making a stop there, it was a no-brainer… I was going. We arrived a few hours early and got in […]

The Offspring – Days Go By

I was very skeptical before I listened to this. The Offspring will probably go down as one of my all-time favorite bands, as not only do they have some of the best early pop punk albums ever, but they paved the way for so many bands after them. However, their musical style and direction has […]
