Diamond Youth Stream Debut LP, ‘Nothing Matters’

Baltimore’s Diamond Youth have joined forces with Spin Magazine to begin streaming their debut album, Nothing Matters, a full week ahead of its official release. Give it a listen after the jump.

“I think the full-length is a nice showcase of the different styles we like to write in the rock genre,” vocalist Justin Gilman recently told Inyourspeakers Media. “Some are more mellow and nostalgic, other songs are bangers, fast paced and grungier. We just like writing good, simple songs. That’s always what we have in mind when writing.”

Gilman isn’t kidding; the group’s newest offering is varied …

ALBUM STREAM: The Early November – ‘Imbue’

After months of anticipation, The Early November have begun streaming their fourth full-length record, Imbue. Give it a listen after the break, and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

“This is my favorite album I’ve ever been a part of,” said frontman Ace Enders. “I think one of the reasons is that we did it at two separate times. So there is a definite difference in the personality of the songs. I love when an album doesn’t sound uniform and I think that’s what makes this one sound and feel so special to me.”

Mumford And Sons

Mumford and Sons Stream New Album ‘Wilder Mind’

Mumford and Sons are back with a new record and a new sound. The band’s first entirely electric release, Wilder Mind, is now streaming in full via Spotify. You can check it out below.

For the band’s first new record since 2012′s Babel, Mumford and Sons decided to directly address fan perception of their last release and mix up the sonic range. For Wilder Mind, the band used no banjos and toned down the use of acoustic instruments in favor of a more rock-influenced sound. I’m a fan of the change, as my main criticism of Babel

From first to last

From First To Last Stream ‘Dead Trees’ In Its Entirety

It has been over five years since From First To Last released their last album. At that time, Matt Good was responsible for the lead vocals. Half a decade later, Spencer Sotelo is taking the lead on vocals, and FFTL seem like an entirely new band. With singles like “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good” and “Black And White” they have proven that they are capable of writing songs that are nostalgic for fans, but still original enough to bring in new listeners.

The album officially hit stores tomorrow, so Sumerian Records …

Tom DeLonge Releases Disappointing Collection Of Demos, Surprises No One

A few months after teasing a collection of demos that were meant to be future blink-182 songs, Tom DeLonge has released an official stream of To The Stars… Demos, Odds, And Ends.

I’ve listened to the release a few times now, and I think I’m ready to say that I’m glad Tom is no longer a part of blink-182 if this is what he was bringing to the table. While the release isn’t entirely awful, it’s not something that I’d ever give a second listen to. Songs range from frustratingly mediocre (“New World,” “Suburban Kings”) to downright embarrassing (“Golden …
