Teen Divorce – Almost Heaven EP Review
Jacksonville Florida emo/punk pop trio Teen Divorce dropped their self produced debut EP Almost Heaven, late this winter, in the midst of 2017 tour leg. The record has a unique and nostalgic feel despite a fairly modern indie sound. It’s heartfelt and almost accidentally catchy. Their music is obviously genuine and I see a lot of potential in their work as they move forward through upcoming tour dates and a future full length record.

Floral and Fading – New Music from Pierce the Veil
Pierce the Veil recently debuted a music video for their new, and charming as hell, pop punk track, “Floral and Fading”. It’s a classic emo hit that might seem shockingly overproduced and synthy if you aren’t used to Fearless Records, but there is something to be said for that sticky sweet and nostalgic 3rd wave emo sound. Lighthearted delivery of suicidal lyrics, a music video that nods to “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, and the never forgotten “woah-oh” laced breakdown together are oddly classic at this point.

Ingenue assaults your headphones as a long rush of fuzz and distortion but gradually transforms into a slick indie rock offering. The song is a meandering track that demands attention and delivers a creative vibe much different than anything else on the markets these days. At times, I felt like I had my ass parked on a huge bass speaker in the corner of the dance floor at The Revival in Philadelphia listening to a killer new wave dance party.

New Def Leppard Video – “We Belong”
We’ll keep this one short and sweet. Def Leppard continues to put out new rock ‘n roll that matters. Their newer music is comfortably reminiscent, but with a fresh feel. They are buoyed by the fact that in this their fourth decade of rock, they are still touring and playing with virtually the original lineup.

Tilted Axes Album Review
Unfortunately society tends to poke fun at things that are experimental. We keep the creativity of Sonic Youth underground, and put Kanye West on a pedestal. We shove King Crimson in the corners of our couch cushions and laud Lady Gaga for wearing meat…. Which is still pretty sweet though…. But King Crimson is soooo fucking good…..
