REVIEW: Allison Weiss – ‘Remember When’ EP

Artist: Allison Weiss
Album: Remember When EP
Genre: Power pop
Label: No Sleep Records

Allison Weiss has been using her guitar to win over hearts since she was 14 years old. She has written plenty of songs in that time, and released quite a few of them before she joined forces with No Sleep Records. Shortly after signing to the label she released a full-length album, and now she’s releasing a short EP this month, titled Remember When.

The EP starts off with the title track. This is my personal favorite song on the EP. It’s full of that …

LISTEN: The Felix Culpa – “Karma City”

It has been a long wait for new tunes from the much loved and much missed The Felix Culpa. But, today, fans are able to finally surround themselves in new sounds from the band in the form of new song “Karma City.”

“Karma City” is a catalyst of a track, bringing some of the dirtiest tones the band has used to date. Covered with a sludgy bass, heavy guitars, tight grooves, and the perfect balance between pop and drone vocals, “Karma City” is a welcomed return for the band.

The track comes from an upcoming split with Foreign Tongues via …

The Wonder Years Release Full-Band Version Of “Living Room Song”

Brace yourself: The Wonder Years have released a new song, kind of.

The undisputed kings of new-school pop-punk have released a full-band version of “Living Room Song” over at Alt Press. The acoustic version of the track originally appeared as an elusive Japanese B-side to 2011′s Suburbia I’ve Given You All And Now I’m Nothing, and has since been released as a bonus track on the deluxe edition of the record. I personally believe that the acoustic version is far superior, but it’s great to have both versions around.

The song will be released through No Sleep Records’ …

Watch Lee Corey Oswald’s Music Video For “Progress”

There are a lot of different directions bands can take not only with their music, but the videos they put together to represent their art. We see plenty of videos where artists simply record themselves playing the song, so it’s always refreshing to see something a little bit more original. The indie group known as Lee Corey Oswald decided to make their new music video into a short horror flick that features plenty of blood, death and Rainier beer. The video in question is for their single titled “Progress,” and it’s available for your viewing pleasure right below the break.…
