City Lights

City Lights Call It Quits

City Lights have been together since 2008, and they’ve released two full length albums in that time. One of which, was released this past December. It’s a rather short time for a band to be together, but it appears as though that’s long enough for the group as they have announced their plans to break up.

Though the group did no go into detail about their decision, they did indicate it was time for them to take different opportunities. It seems that a few of them still want to make music, and the others want to focus on working behind …

Mixtapes Ordinary Silence

REVIEW: Mixtapes – Ordinary Silence

Artist: Mixtapes
Album: Ordinary Silence
Genre: Pop-punk
Label: No Sleep Records

Do you remember being about 13 or 14, possibly brand new (or even a seasoned appreciator) to the world of rock and pop punk, feeling bright and positive and enthusiastic and gloriously attuned to the future? That’s what listening to Mixtapes feels like. A nostalgia fest. Given I spent this past weekend being swallowed up by increasingly aghast realisations as to how long it’s been since, say, Roadrunner United happened (tl;dr version: I’m old), Ordinary Silence is both exceedingly well-timed and exceedingly welcome. It’ll come as no surprise to …
