Propagandhi w/ Paint It Black (with Setlist!)

Oh my god… let’s just say I’ve been waiting since nearly the Clinton administration to see one of my favorite bands, Propagandhi (to the point that I wrote the band as a young-un… bitching about how they never come to the States… which Todd graciously replied “one of these days, we will”). So on the […]

Holy Crap It’s Friday! (A Mix)

Some people take superstition to a new level (no pun intended) Well, I had a review of a band I wrote up that took forever to write. Buuuut I just learned the album was released on an RIAA label (which we don’t post) since we have had problems with them in the past… God damn […]

Releasing all of their material digitally (pay-what-you-want) on their own Quote Unquote Records, it’s hard to believe that these ska-punk giants started out by one man recording a song on his laptop microphone as his other band (Arrogant Sons […]

Kittens Ablaze – The Monstrous Vanguard (For fans of Ra Ra Riot, Defiance Ohio, Arcade Fire)

Kittens Ablaze are not your typical indie band. Implementing elements of punk similar to Against Me! and Defiance, Ohio, Kittens Ablaze keeps “The Monstrous Vanguard” interesting for a short-attention spanned punk fan like myself through catchy ass tunes using various instrumentation. Sure, your standard guitar and drums drive the song like any modern band, but […]
