REVIEW: Dance Gavin Dance – ‘Instant Gratification’

Artist: Dance Gavin Dance
Album: Instant Gratification
Genre: Rock, Pop, Experimental

Stephen Sondheim will probably never be found sitting at the back of your local Dance Gavin Dance concert, but I cannot help thinking the legendary composer and lyricist would, at the …

Hands Like Houses Share Music Video For “I Am”

Last week Australian post-hardcore outfit Hands Like Houses released a brief teaser for their new single, “I Am.” The group has teamed up with Alternative Press to reveal the new song and video. You can also check it out below.

“I Am” is my new favorite HLH track. It’s full of energy, and is a little heavier than what we are used to from them. I hope the band plans on releasing some more singles like this in the near future.

Stay Close Records, the band’s own imprint ran through Rise Records, made the whole release cycle for Don’t Be Long all the more personal and genuine. Through this, a lot of the excess tied in with releasing music doesn’t need to be tolerated, but instead, could be avoided …
