SINGLE: Tiny Dancers – Hannah, We Know

Release Date: May 28th, 2007
Label: Parlophone
Website: www.thetinydancers.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/tinydancers

Rating:

This new offering from Tiny Dancers is a piece of uplifting folk music with a slight pop twist which breaks all the regular conventions of both folk and pop music; confusing to say the least, but in a good way.

ALBUM: There For Tomorrow – A Little Faster

Release Date: June 6th, 2009
Label: Hopeless Records
Website: www.therefortomorrow.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/therefortomorrow

Rating:

Five years is a long wait for a following album to be released, especially from a band that isn’t placed on a legendary pedestal or regarded as a messiah to the masses. ‘A Little Faster’ is the sophomore album of Florida pop-rock four-piece There For Tomorrow, and though it’s nothing blinding or life changing it’s got the makings of an album made of constant plays.

ALBUM: Taking Back Sunday – New Again

Release Date: June 1st, 2009
Label: Warner Bros
Website: www.takingbacksunday.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/takingbacksunday

Rating:

New York rockers Taking Back Sunday are one of those bands that can do no wrong. The five-piece always produce immaculate albums, renowned for amazing live shows, and have a fanbase to make many acts green with envy. So it really came as no surprise that Adam Lazzara and co. would be just as impressive on their fourth full-length, ‘New Again’.

ALBUM: Suicide Silence – No Time To Bleed

Release Date: June 29th, 2009
Label: Century Media
Website: www.suicidesilence.net
MySpace: www.myspace.com/suicidesilence

Rating:

Fastly becoming a big name in the deathcore scene, Suicide Silence‘s sophomore album ‘No Time To Bleed’ aims to be a projectile for the 5-piece mob from appreciated to adored in the alternative music world. With a debut like ‘The Cleansing’, it’s going to be pretty hard for the boys to top themselves.

ALBUM: Stuck Mojo – The Great Revival

Release Date: December 1st, 2008
Label: Napalm Records
Website: www.stuckmojo.us
MySpace: www.myspace.com/stockmojo

Rating:

Metal crossovers have been around for years. Infact, crossovers in any genres have been going almost aslong as original primary genres have been, and can work just as much as they end up with terrible results. Sadly, Stuck Mojo‘s ‘The Great Revival’ is just another one of those crossover releases that isn’t far from “awful” territory.

SINGLE: StoneLeaf – Each Last Act

Release Date: October 2nd, 2006
Label: Still River Records
Website: www.stoneleaf.org
MySpace: www.myspace.com/stoneleaf

Rating:

‘Each Last Act’ is a rather odd single. The guitar work varies from basic power chords to riffs consisting of single notes, and the vocals are quiet and spooky. At times this comes of as annoying, and it’s a surprise to work out that they’re actually meant to sound like that. By the second minute a guitar solo rears its head, trying to bring a bit more edge into the song, but at the mosts parts it’s plain dull.

ALBUM: Steel Panther – Feel The Steel

Release Date: June 9th, 2009
Label: Universal Records
Website: www.steelpantherrocks.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/steelpanther

Rating:

Spinal Tap + The Darkness x Cock References = ‘Feel The Steel’

I am prone to exaggeration, but with that in mind I have no hesitation in calling this the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Not necessarily in a bad way, but to prove my point, quickly Google the lyrics to lead single ‘Death To All But Metal’ and you’ll automatically agree with me. I’ll wait. Okay, so now we’re on the same page. While it may be incredibly stupid it is undoubtedly perversely entertaining. You also have to respect any band that can make a song titled ‘Asian Hooker’ with the lyric “Smells like sushi” sound epic.

SINGLE: Sound Of Guns – Architects

Release Date: July 8th, 2009
Label: Distiller Records
Website: www.soundofguns.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/soundofguns

Rating:

Liverpool: something both The Beatles and Sound Of Guns have in common, actually it’s the only thing the two bands have in common, simply because when you listen to these lot, they’re just as rock ‘n’ roll as Led Zepplin.

ALBUM: A Skylit Drive – Adelphia

Release Date: June 9th, 2009
Label: Fearless
Website: None available
MySpace: www.myspace.com/askylitdrive

Rating:

The latest studio attempt from post-hardcore giants A Skylit Drive has been eagerly anticipated by many, and it takes shape in what is ‘Adelphia’, an album that could well storm the post-hardcore scene and alternative music circles, throwing the band back into the spotlight and increasing their internet fanbase considerably.

EP: Skinless Finger – Introducing…

Release Date: September 2nd, 2007
Label: Unsigned
Website: None available
MySpace: www.myspace.com/skinlessfinger

Rating:

Unique and original bands and sounds are always a nice refreshing thing for you to come across, and one that won’t come across with a cliché or the imitation of another band is even better. Skinless Finger from Manchester create a combination of genres into one sound, mainly punk/ska and reggae with their notable beat-boxing vocals included throughout a lot of their material. In ‘Introducing…’ they have provided this package into four songs.
