This thread is where everybody recommends bands to everybody else, so if someone comes in going "Hay where can I find bands that sound like blah blah blah" we can all yell "RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD!" at them.

The way this thread works: When you make your post, first name the genre of music the bands fit under, then name the bands and (optional) provide links. I will edit the post below as bands are posted, so people don't have to comb through the whole thread to find bands they want. However, if you want you can provide a short description in your post, it will not make it into the list but people searching for more info can still read it in your post.

If someone posts a band in a genre you don't agree with, simply state what genre you think they should be under, and the band will simply be posted under both genres. Compromises are fun!

Please keep this thread clean of spam, thanks!

Organized by genre, not all bands have links, but it doesn't mean they don't have websites. Words in quotation marks denote recommended songs.

Here’s how I’ll do this. I’ll give genre, I will not give a purevolume site, simply because it would take too long, that doesn‘t mean there isn‘t one though, I advise you try. I’ll post a song to download as well, and if I don‘t say one, it means “get anything“. This is in alphabetical order.

The genre’s and comparisons aren’t the best. I’m half asleep as I’m writing this, so give me a break. They should decent, if not good though.

Metalcore:
36 Crazyfists - Metalcore with nice, melodic singing. There’s some Alternative in them. “Installing The Catheter”
A Fall Farewell - Metalcore. For people who wish Across Five Aprils was always heavy. Quality stuff. “With Blessed Grace”
A Jealousy Issue - For fans of early Poison the Well. Same singer as PTW’s original EP. “In The Shape Of Stars”
A Life Once Lost - Metalcore/grindcore. The screamers remind me of Anah Aevia. “A Falls River Farewell”
A Thousand Falling Skies - Metalcore. For fans of Dead To Fall.
The Agony Scene - Metalcore with a very unique screamer. For fan of As I Lay Dying and Haste The Day. “Judas” “We Bury Our Dead At Down”
Anterrabae - For fans of Norma Jean. “How Joey Got His Grove Back”
Arma Angelus - The band metalcore band that formed Fall Out Boy. I don’t know who to compare them to. “To Feel No More Bitterness Forever”
August Burns Red - For fans of Dead To Fall. “You Should Be Taking Flight Now”

Pop-Punk
5 Day Ahead - Good quality pop-punk without a whiny singer. Not very deep at all. Occasional screaming, like a less catchy Fall Out Boy. “Famous Last Words”
504 - Another quality pop-punk without a whiny singer. Not very original. “Kissing Old Friends”
A Step Behind - Loud pop-punk without a whiny winger. Quality stuff.
A Thorn For Every Heart - Pop-punk/post-hardcore. They have a Thursday-esque quality to them. “I Night To Remember, A Morning To Forget”
A Wilhelm Scream - Very talented pop-punk/punk/hardcore mix. Insane live show. A fan of any of those three genres should check them out. “Anchor End” “The Rip”
Albert React - Pop-punk with a hint of post-hardcore. For fans of Thursday. “Breathe”
All Rights Reserved - Post-hardcore/pop-punk. Talented guys. “You Know Who You Are”
Anadivine - Like Emery, but with more pop-punk influence. “Alcohol And Oxygen”
Armor For Sleep - Light, feel good (or not so good) pop-punk. For fans of Taking Back Sunday (maybe) “My Town” “Being Your Walls”


Post-hardcore
A Thorn For Every Heart - Pop-punk/post-hardcore. They have a Thursday-esque quality to them. “I Night To Remember, A Morning To Forget”
Anthym - For fans of At A Loss. There’s pop-punk, post-hardcore and emocore in these guys. “Broken Vessel”
Albert React - Pop-punk with a hint of post-hardcore. For fans of Thursday. “Breathe”
All Rights Reserved - Post-hardcore/pop-punk. Talented guys. “You Know Who You Are”
Anthym - For fans of At A Loss. There’s pop-punk, post-hardcore and emocore in these guys. “Broken Vessel”
At A Loss - A diverse pop-punk/post-hardcore/rock band. “To This Cross”


Hardcore
A Wilhelm Scream - Very talented pop-punk/punk/hardcore mix. Insane live show. A fan of any of those three genres should check them out. “Anchor End” “The Rip”
A18 - A not-as-good-but-still-decent Blood For Blood copy.


Emocore
A Closing Skyline - Emocore. For fans of Across Five Aprils (although ACS is a bit heavier). “Trial By Fire”
Across Five Aprils - Legendary emocore band. And fan of the genre need to listen. Their newest EP isn’t exactly great (to put it simply, it almost sounds like Story Of The Year), but “A Tragedy In Progress” easily goes down as one of my favorite albums. “Blue Eyed Suicide” “Pawn Shop Promises”
Anadivine - Like Emery, but with more pop-punk influence. “Alcohol And Oxygen”

Emo/Screamo
A Day In Black And White - Emo/screamo in Level-plane. Worth a check out for any fan of (real) emo/screamo.
A Petal Fallen - Emocore/emo. Not sure who to compare them to...a stretch would be Circle Takes The Square.



Acoustic
A Farewell To Arms - Legendary acoustic band. Any fan of acoustic should try them out. “The Road Less Traveled”

Indie/Mellow
American Football - Talented mellow band. No distortion, so if you’re looking for something heavy, look elsewhere.
Ariel Kill Him - Mellow indie band. Quality shiz-nit. “Bevinson In Winoka”



Next post will be for "B" bands.

Jon that is beautiful, I think I love you. One teensy favor though, could you organize the bands by genre next time? It would make my job a lot easier.

Eh..I'll see what I can do. I'll still be going by letter though.

I'll try to have at least one letter a day, but it takes a while.

And by the way, if anyone wants anything by any of the bands I mention, IM me at ibleedtheskyi or tell me your g-mail acount and I'll send some songs, or the album if you want.

10-15-2004, 01:27 PM
Yeah, the reason I haven't gotten your bands in the list yet is because I have to copy the band, find the genre in the list, and then paste it, and it's a little time-consuming, plus my browser kept shutting down on me yesterday.

Right now I can't get past Sum 41, chuck is an awesome album and suggest it to everyone. The punk is still in the songs, and has a harder edge which is why this album is so complete.

Metalcore
Backstabbers Inc. - Metalcore, grindcore, or something in between. Chaotic mess. Yum.
Beauty To Ashes - Metalcore and hardcore. A mix of the greats. “Bystanderds of a Lifestyle Obession”
Beecher - Great, fast metalcore band from the UK. The screamer is a little high though. “Arrow Flies”
Between The Buried And Me - Legends. If you like metalcore but don’t have any BBAM, get some, NOW!
Bleeding Through - Remind me of Martyr AD in a way. Not very unique, they’d probably remind you of a lot of metalcore bands. They‘re still good at what they do though. “Sweet Vampirous” “Number Seven With A Bullet”
Blood Has Been Shed - If I’m not mistaken, the singer of Killswitch Engage screams for this band. But fear not, no melody hear. Just full on metalcore, with some great screaming. “Technicolor Jackets”
Blood Runs Cold - For fans of Every Time I Die. “Broken Bond”
Bloody Sunday - Fast, gritty metalcore.
Born From Pain - A heavier Blood For Blood.
Breather Resist - For fans of Norma Jean. “The best Mistake”
Bridge To Solace - A GREAT blend of punk and metal. Talent, speed, some melodic sections, a great, great band. They have unique (meaning made for the band) speaking parts and the beginning or end of each song. which are all very well done. They are done by someone in Pennywise, I believe. “How Long Do We Have To Bear Our ****ing Crosses” “Death Race With Dimension Four”
Burning Skies - Overall a generic but good metalcore band. “Individual Hate Complex”
Bury Your Dead - For fans of Dead To Fall’s new album.

Emo
Bright Blue Calm - The quiet-to-loud dynamic characteristic to emo. Great stuff. “Color Pallet”

Metal
Beyond The Embrace - They sound kind of like Children Of Bodom, but without the keytar. I love the signer/screamer. Great/good solos too. “Insect Song” “Reedemer”
Blind Guardian - In my opinion, the Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys of metal.

Ska
Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution - Ska. I’ve been told they’re a Streetlight Manifesto but with acoustic guitars. “Here’s To Life”
Big D And The Kids Table - The Gypsy Hill EP is my favorite ska album ever. A great mix of ska and punk. “Scenester” “Those Kids Suck” “Check List”


Pop-punk
Bayside - Pop-punk without a whiny singer omgwtf. A harder edge in some songs than most pop-punk. “Masterpeice” “Phone Call From Poland”
Before Brail - Mellow and quiet to melodic pop-punk. Sweet. “When Feeling Fades”
Before I Go - A bit of harder edge, but not much. Non-whiny singers with a bit of a rasp. “Again I Follow Suit”
Before Today - Pop-punk with some post-hardcore influence. They have a LOT of a talent for a pop-punk band. Check the metal-esque solo in “Roots Beneath Ideals” and the melodic greatness of “Pierce The Evil”
Belvedere - Fast pop-punk. Not usually what I listen to, so I can’t make comparisons. “Repetition, Rejection”
Best Interest - It’s a shame these guys have only released an EP. It’s genius though. A great blend of melodic singing and screaming,. A good bit of talent as well. “True Evol”
Better Luck Next Year - Light, care free pop-punk. More talented than the average as well. “Winning What’s Left”
Blueline Medic - Nice, melodic pop-punk.
Burns Out Bright - Not the best produced of bands, but great melody and some good guitar work (for pop-punk) “Something I Can Steal”

Indie and Mellow
Bear Vs. Shark - Indie and post-hardcore. A great blend of singing and screaming. “Ma Jolie” (just note that they aren’t mellow for the most part)
Beauty Pill - Beautiful mellow, mellodic indie. “Nancy Medly, Girl Genius, Age 15”
Before Brail - Mellow and quiet to melodic pop-punk. Sweet. “When Feeling Fades”
Blonde Red Head - Like Rilo Kiley, but less Folk-y.
Brazil - Any fan of melody and unique-ness should give a listen.

Post-Hardcore
Bear Vs. Shark - Indie and post-hardcore. A great blend of singing and screaming. “Ma Jolie”
Before Today - Pop-punk with some post-hardcore influence. They have a LOT of a talent for a pop-punk band. Check the metal-esque solo in “Roots Beneath Ideals” and the melodic greatness of “Pierce The Evil”
Beloved - I wasn’t sure where to put these guys. Beautiful melodic singing to heavy guitars and one of my favorite screamers. “Death To Traitors” “Failure On My Lips”
Best Interest - It’s a shame these guys have only released an EP. It’s genius though. A great blend of melodic singing and screaming,. A good bit of talent as well. “True Evol”
Bleed The Dream - They have some Alternative influence as well. Great singer. “Overcrowded Room”
Blue Skies At War - A little quiet, but nonetheless good. “Looking Back”
Blueprint Car Crash - A good amount of talent in these guys. A weird singer though. “12.8.80”
Broken Horizon - A talented band, with a great singer and a great singer. Mixes great heavy riffs with a beautiful singer. Lyrics are lame, but the music is great. “My Bleeding Heart” “Loses”

Hardcore
Beauty To Ashes - Metalcore and hardcore. A mix of the greats. “Bystanderds of a Lifestyle Obession”
Blacklisted - I’d be tempted to call them metalcore, but I wont. Fast, heavy, what more could you want?

Acoustic
Bleed The Dream - They have an all-acoustic EP which is very good, so I’ll just put them here as well. Anything off the album “Asleep”

Defy Genre
Big Dumb Face - Some kind of metal and synth mix, but hardly nintendocore. They have all their voices synthed and distorted, very odd. “Rebel” “Mighty ***** Lazer”

I know this is a "Pop-Punk" Sub-forum, but I was wondering if anyone knew some good bands/songs (whether it be emo/alternative/metal/rock/etc) that uses the piano well. Kinda a weird question I know, but I think that songs/bands that can effectively incorporate the the piano into their songs (Trains done it, Journey, Straylight Run's "Existentialism," etc.) sounds totally different and seem to blend more styles into one. Maybe its just me, but I love it. So if you guys/girls have any good suggestions/recommendations... for sure post them. Thanks

Metal (powermetal)- Sonata Arctica. The song to check out by them is "The Cage". Some amazing keyboard. Children of Bodom as well.

Desert City Soundtrack and The Dredson Dolls are both just drums and piano. (mostly)

Nevea Tears is an emocore band that uses a keyboard in all of their songs...suggested song is Helium Queen.

Those are the only bands I can currently think of that use them in all songs.

You should definatly check out Desert City Soundtrack, if anything.

Hello, welcome to Americana. Please press... sorry, stupid song!

Yeah, so the point of this thread is to write small reviews for albums you've recently bought (notice the word "recently"?), to let the other pop-punkers know if it is worthy of being bought.

Don't look at me saying "Kif u retard lolz deres alredi a review forum u silly lolzors!!1". If you want to review an album track by track in detail, then do it THERE (http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=62). The whole idea of this is to recommend albums which are fairly new and you have got.

If you are going to do a small review, then try to keep the album release recent. It isn't that helpful to see loads of reviews for older albums. The idea is to tell us whether the newer albums are decent enough to buy. Try to stick to these pointers:


ALWAYS put the following details in: Band, Album, Release Date
Give us about a paragraph describing the general sound of the album, and maybe a shorter one tell us about standout tracks if you feel. That doesn't mean the last one is preliminary though, it just means you can do it.
At the end, give it a rating and recommended tracks which you think will give other people a good idea of what the album will sound like
Like stated before, if you want to give an in-depth review of the album, then do it in the CD Reviews Forum (http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=62). This is for recommendations and small reviews to give us an idea of what the album sounds like ONLY!


Example review:
Band: Jimmy Eat World
Album: Futures
Released: October 11th, 2004

Very typical JEW album. Half the album is filled with catchy hooks and superb lyrics that get stuck in your head for days, while the bigger portion is packed with electric ballads and heart-warming lyrics. Very similar to Clarity, yet slightly heavier. A definite album to add to your collection for 2004 for lovers of post-emo and meaningful pop-punk.
4/5

Recommended tracks:

Pain
Nothingwrong
Night Drive

Something like that. Short and to the point, only slightly describing the album and talking about the general sound. If you have made a proper review for the album then link it at the end.

If this doesn't kick off well, then mods feel free to close it. Also if you think there's no point in this thread, then again close at will. But give it a chance before making quick decisions.

Band: Underoath
Album: They're Only Chasing Safety
Released: June 15, 2004

This album has gotten a lot of heat from hardcore fans and older fans of underoath. they claim that underoath got rid of their old singer and changed their sound for the worse just to cash in on the post-hardcore fad that is going around. that may be true, but what is not true is when they say that ubderoath is doing the same old thing. This album displays how much talent can be used in a post-hardcore band. the vocals in here are amazing, from the gut wrenching screams to the incredible harmonies and overlapping voices. you cant hear vocals this good anywhere else in the post-hardcore scene. the song writting is origional and they like to use a lot of keyboards and they avoid the typical formulas. this has been one of the most played albums i own and it is one of my all time favorites. if you like post-hardcore stuff like Thursday or Finch, check this band out.
4.5/5

songs:
its dangerous business walking out your door
down, set, go,
some will seek forgiveness, others will seek escape
young and aspiring

Band: Green Day
Album: American Idiot
Release Date: 9/21/04(i think)

Well lets just start off and say we've waited for a long time, for a new green day cd. We finally got it. They still have the Green Day sound, but this time they expanded their horizons. The boys have included 2 punk-rock Operas, that are both around 9 minutes, each containing 5 parts, and it tells a story. Those may be the highlight of the album for some, others very well may dislike them. I find it creative. The song "wake me up when september ends" is about the death of Billie Joes dad, and its a sad, but great song. Boulevard of Broken Dreams is another great track, expanding past the typical 2 minutes 30 seconds, this track offers great guitar intros, and a good bass line. Whatsername another catchy song, is a great way to end the album. I'll stop babbaling now, and go away.

Songs:
Jesus of Suburbia
Boulevard of Broken Dreams
We are the waiting
Whatsername
Homecoming

Band: Straylight Run
Album: Self Titled
Released: October 12, 2004

Coming fresh from TBS, detached members Shaun Cooper, John Nolan and his pseudo-backup vocalist sister Michelle formed Straylight Run in the middle of 2003. It's not surprising how much raves they have received in the past year alone and with their massively promoted EP spreading rapidly, this album is one of the most anticipated for pop-punk fans everywhere. First thoughts about this; their sound does not stray too far from their EP, it's just honest, no-nonsense post-emo.

Some might dismiss them for being another Dashboard, and thought they don't break new ground, this cd still deserves a good listen. What sets them apart from other bands of the same genre is Michelle. Not only does adds some sorrowful textures with her piano playing, but her beautiful childlike vocals will delve you deeper in the songs.

Do not, however, expect this as another Something to Write About. It does deliver, but sometimes it lacks the replay value as some songs end up sounding the same over time.

One of the strengths of this album is the lyrics. Yes, most of it is straight up mush, but it gets all the more meaningful if you can relate to it like most post-emo lines are. Overall, despite the exclusion of A Slow Descent(which for me is a wonderful song), it's still a pretty good purchase for everyone into the genre.

3.7/5


Songs:

The Perfect Ending
Existentialism on Prom Night
Your Name Here(Sunrise Highway)
Sympathy for the Martyr

For fans who dig melodic pop/rock I highly recommend, "This Day&Age". Their debut cd,"Always Leaves The Ground" has been receiving rave reviews and the guys have generated a huge fan base all over The US. To take a listen to what fans are raving about tracks from "Always Leaves The Ground" are available for downloading at http://www.purevolume.com/thisdayandage. Currently the guys are on tour. For fans in the NYC area who wish to check out "This Day&Age" the guys have just added a last minute show at The Mercury Lounge on Tuesday, Nov. 30th. Tickets are $8 and will be available at the door. More information is available at: http://www.mercuryloungenyc.com/

Hope you enjoy one of the hottest bands to hit the indie scene in quite some time!!

Let's update this thread a little!

Kif's recommendations
Brand New Disaster (http://www.purevolume.com/brandnewdisaster) have been one of my favourite bands of the year. Their new album is very heavy pop-punk stuff, and though it doesn't bring much new stuff to the genre, they pull out some amazing pop-punk songs. Check out "Blades Don't Need Reloading" and "Walking Wounded" on the Purevolume

Kane Hodder (http://www.purevolume.com/kanehodder) are by far one of the catchiest bands I have ever heard this year. They manage to fuse indie "NME-rock" with powerful hardcore breakdowns and screams. Their debut album Pleasure To Remain So Heartless is a spectacular piece of work. On their Purevolume, check out "I Think Patrick Swayze Is Sexy" and "Attack On Tir Asleen"

Rufio (http://www.purevolume.com/rufio) are also high on my recommendations list. Their new album, The Comfort Of Home, is a perfect summer album filled with catchy melodies and well-written pop punk anthems. They only have one song off the new album on their Purevolume though, called "Out Of Control". Nevertheless, it's still amazing

Bear Vs. Shark (http://www.purevolume.com/cruiserweight) are my last recommendation. They are a solid pure pop-punk band, swinging out tunes perfect for the summer. The addition of a high female voice and lyrics that just get stuck in your head make them perfect for this genre. On the PV, check out "Vermont" and "Operation Eyes Closed"

Of Blessings and Burdens

For Fans Of Emo/Screamo/Metal looking for something new and refreshing in the genre. Welcome "Of Blessings and Burdens". They are four piece "Radcore" band from my area (Western Massachusetts), and have been together for around a year, but already have a full length cd and a music video being in production. They're also playing on the Warped Tour in Northampton, MA. Check em out, you will never regret it.

Their first single, "Never Bled Like This". (Showcases their heavier stuff)

Summer recommendations!

The Academy Is... (http://www.purevolume.com/theacademyis) are one of the best bands to hit 2005 in my opinion. They have this talent of creating fun pop-punk songs without being too loud. And Will's vocals sound beautiful over the top. Check out "Checkmarks" and "Seasons" on their PV.

Panic! At The Disco (http://www.purevolume.com/panicatthedisco) are another pop-punk band blending dance melodies into their music. Similar to Hellogoodbye with more of a Fall Out Boy pop-punk sound, this band are set to get bigger this year. Check out "Relax Relapse" and "It's Time To Dance" on their PV.

Day At The Fair (http://www.purevolume.com/dayatthefair) are Drive-Thru's latest offering of pop-punk, and they have made a good choice this time. With a mix of The Movielife and The Starting Line, DATF are an excellent choice for summer. Check out "The Blame Anxiety" and "Eastern Homes And Western Hearts" on their PV.

Over It (http://www.purevolume.com/overit) are the last band I recommend. They are pure pop-punk and they can pull out anthem after anthem, blending polished guitar riffs and well sung vocals. Check out "Siren On The 101" and "Waiting" on their PV

'Crush' and 'Fall' are the superior songs, Kif.

And as for your other post with Bear Vs. Shark, they surely are not pure pop-punk, with the screaming and all.

I know this is a "Pop-Punk" Sub-forum, but I was wondering if anyone knew some good bands/songs (whether it be emo/alternative/metal/rock/etc) that uses the piano well. Kinda a weird question I know, but I think that songs/bands that can effectively incorporate the the piano into their songs (Trains done it, Journey, Straylight Run's "Existentialism," etc.) sounds totally different and seem to blend more styles into one. Maybe its just me, but I love it. So if you guys/girls have any good suggestions/recommendations... for sure post them. Thanks

My Recommendations:

(For fans of: Underoath, Emery, The Used)

Saosin: Although they only have an EP out, and the same singer from that EP left and now a new singer is in the band, they're still really amazing. Blending angelic vocals with the just right amount of screaming, and almost Killswitch Engage type guitar, (but not AS good), though still catchy as hell. Check them out at http://www.myspace.com/saosin .

(For Fans of: The Matches, Saves the Day, HelloGoodBye)

Ludo: Haha, what can I say about Ludo. They won the FUSE's battle of the bands, and for that made a music video for the song "Hum Along". Ludo's lyrics are never serious, and always pretty funny. Power-pop at some of its finest, check them out at http://www.myspace.com/ludorock .

(For Fans of: Coheed and Cambria, Fall Out Boy, Good Music)

Gatsby's American Dream: Ah, another fine band coming out of the Seattle area (Home of The Blood Brothers). Gatsby's American Dream mix simplistic yet interesting guitar riffs, and some of the smartest lyrics you will find out there. Their new album "Volcano" has raved reviews, and I dont doubt any reasons why. The vocals may take a "little" bit of time to get used to, but if you have already gotten used to Coheed or Fall Out Boy, it'll be easy for you. Check them out at http://www.myspace.com/gatsbysamericandream .

Here's my recommendations for the week:

Lorene Drive (http://www.purevolume.com/lorenedrive) are my first recommendation. Their new album is amazing, heavy and overall fun to listen to. Lots of overdrive, their sound is a mixture of Emanuel and American Hi-Fi. They can pull out the poppy sound without losing volume or tempo. If you're gonna check out any songs, listen to "God Knows I Love You Kid" and "A Song In The Key Of Sex".

Cauterize (http://www.purevolume.com/cauterize) are another rocky band driven by hard-hitting riffs and heartfelt lyrics. Their new album Paper Wings combines fast-beats with melodic riffs and passionate vocals. Listen to "Tremble" and "Closer" for an idea of how the album sounds.

Jack's Mannequin (http://www.purevolume.com/jacksmannequin) have been being whored by me since I heard them, but honestly, I believe their album Everything In Transit will be the best of the year. Piano-based ballads filled with electronic beats and beautiful guitar melodies just make song after song a hit. Listen to "The Mixed Tape" and "Into The Airwaves" to find out how amazing this band are.

Fight Paris (http://www.purevolume.com/fightparis) are a more hardcore band, with most their lyrics being centered around sex. And not like pretty lyrics you'd sing to a girl. Their "party hard, work harder" attitude is proven with their heavy and fast anthems. Check out "Complete Heat" and "Destroyer" to get a taste of this band.

BEDlight for BlueEYES (http://www.purevolume.com/bedlightforblueeyes) are my last recommendation, and a fine one at that. Their sound is a sort of mix between pop-punk and glam rock, with lots of solos being jammed into their harsh and loud songs. Listen to "Dig On This" and Ephemeral Addictions" and begin waiting for their debut full-length.

If anyone wants albums by any of these bands (Par Jack's Mannequin, who I have all but 2 songs from the album, and BEFBE, who's album hasn't even leaked) uploading, just ask.

15 Minutes Late (http://www.purevolume.com/15minuteslate)
These guys really do seem to do it well, great mix of pop-punk and rock, the songs really seem to have character, and the catchy choruses and great musician skills really make this band a great band to listen to. From Naperville, IL


Caffeine (http://www.purevolume.com/caffeine)
This band seem to be brilliant at mixing pop and punk together, i don't know what it is, maybe the techno based drum machine and the girlish style vocals (male) but it all seems to come together to make great music. From London, Uk.


Vanilla Sky (http://www.purevolume.com/vanillasky)
They might have a band name the same as a Tom Cruise film, but seriously this band (from Rome, Italy) really know what they're doing, great pop-punk, and the accent really does it for me.

Kif's Weekly Recommendations

The Fall Of Troy (http://www.purevolume.com/thefalloftroy) are easily my first pick of the week. Doppelganger has proved to be the milestone in their discography, combining devilishly fast licks with Tom's high-pitched screaming and somewhat beautiful singing. Check out "F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X." and "Laces Out, Dan!" on their Purevolume for a taster of this awesome band.

The Junior Varsity (http://www.purevolume.com/thejuniorvarsity) are another band combining electronic synth with a genre, and it works incredibly well. Their new album Wide Eyed takes some getting into, but it's a non-stop ride of poppy tunes. Sure, it's not that original, but it works so well. Listen to "Get Comfortable" and "Mad For Medusa" on their Purevolume.

Emery (http://www.purevolume.com/emery) are my next recommendation. The Weak's End was such an impressive debut album, and their new release matches up to their standard of combining heavy riffs with poppy melodies and the occasional scream. Listen to "So Cold I Can See My Breath" and "Listening To Freddy Mercury" from their new album The Question now!

Cartel (http://www.purevolume.com/cartel). I can't not recommend this band. Trust me when I say the new album Chroma is going to kick ass, and likely be my anthem for the summer. I've got some of the new demos, they are just so energetic and crazy! Listen to "Honestly" and "Luckie St." for a glimpse into the new feel-good hit of the year.

Nightmare Of You (http://www.purevolume.com/nightmareofyou) are my final recommendation. Fronted by former Movielife guitarist, Brandon Reilly, this band are bringing sounds from bands like The Smiths and Echo And The Bunnymen to the 21st century. You can only listen to "Dear Scene, I Wish I Was Deaf" on their Purevolume, taken from their EP.

All these band's new records and EPs will be up for download in the YSI thread ASAP, but listen to their Purevolume's to get a glimpse into these bands until they are up

Some recommendations from me:

Burning Bright (http://www.purevolume.com/burningbright) (Pop-punk)
"Since their inception Burning Bright has used the Internet to their full advantage building a dedicated community of fans across the world through their MP3’s sites and online communities." This is good for you, as it means more free music :p Follow the Purevolume links and you can get up to 10 songs from this energetic pop-punk band.

Boys Night Out (http://www.purevolume.com/boysnightout) (Pop-punk with screaming)
If you ever hate your ex so much that you hope they wrap their car around a tree and then laugh sadistically as it bursts into flames, look no further than these guys. Some rather violent lyrics, delightfully and happily sung.

Dead Poetic (http://www.purevolume.com/deadpoetic) (emocore, I think)
I don't know exactly how to compare them to other bands I know... hard rock, screaming and melodic singing with some harmonies, and some crunching guitar chords. Very good lyrics.

Kif's Sunday Recommendations!

I Am The Avalanche (http://www.purevolume.com/iamtheavalanche) are going to be amazing this summer. Their debut self-titled album hits stores in September and is high on my "Most Wanted" list. Made up of members of the ex-Drive-Thru band The Movielife, IATA bring a more mature feel to the former pop-punk band. Listen to "New Disaster" and "Dead And Gone" to get a look into this amazing band.

Houston Calls (http://www.purevolume.com/houstoncalls) are my next major recommendation. It took me a while to get past their not-too-original songs, but after that you see they are a chirpy pop-pun band. Think of them as The Starting Line with a singer with balls and synth. Listen to "Sunrise Goodbyes" and "Exit, Emergency" for a glmpse of this band.

Bullet For My Valentine (http://www.purevolume.com/bulletformyvalentine) were iffy for me as well at first. I wrote them off as an Atreyu-copy, but after another listen of their EP, I noticed they have some damn catchy stuff! Their mix of metal licks, well sung songs and cliché lyrics are sure to make them a hit later this year when their album drops. Check out "Hand Of Blood" and "Turn To Despair".

The Bled (http://www.purevolume.com/thebled) are going to break out this year. Pass The Flask was amazing, and the 2 songs released from their new album sound so good as well. Their intense mix of metal, hardcore and indie have gotten them many fans. Listen to "My Assassin" and "Porcelain Hearts And Hammers For Teeth" for an idea of this awesome band.

Idiot Pilot (http://www.purevolume.com/idiotpilot) are my final recommendation. They are 2 men who give experimental a new meaning. They combine electronic melodies with harsh and heavy riffs and screaming. It works well, as their album Strange We Should Meet Here proves. Listen to "The Violent Tango" and "Losing Color" to get into this band more.

I'll upload albums I have into the YSI thread as soon as I can so you can listen to these bands more. IATA nor The Bled have leaked yet, so I will upload their splits with E11 and FATA. Wow, lots of initials

Wow. This suprised me. I remember the "Spitshine Sonata" and "You Know Who's Seatbelt" on Pass The Flask. Those songs were tight.

The new ones are just bleh. They turned into a pop-punk band with lame and out of place heavy/dissonant moments. His singing voice isn't nearly as good as his scream.

Idiot Pilot (http://www.purevolume.com/idiotpilot) are my final recommendation. They are 2 men who give experimental a new meaning.

Kif has already mentioned them, but i really think everyone should check out Emery, both 'The Weaks End' and their new album, 'The Question' are awesome. Definately a band worth listening to, they're going to be big.

Here are a couple awesome local bands that are definately worth checking out:

By Autumn's End (http://www.purevolume.com/byautumnsend) - Awesome local band. Sort of like Silverstein or Senses Fail.

xTo This Dayx (http://www.purevolume.com/xtothisdayx) - A local straightedge hardcore band. Insane live act.

And here is another awesome band you have probably already heard of, but if not, definately check them out:

Evergreen Terrace (http://www.purevolume.com/evergreenterrace) - Hardcore/Metalcore band out of Jacksonville, Florida. They put on an awesome show as well.

Okay, I have a couple more recommendations for you guys. Usually I've been recommending bands I have seen live over the past few weeks, but these bands have caught my attention even though I haven't seen them recently.

Bayside (http://www.purevolume.com/bayside) - Cool pop-punk band out of New York City. they are signed to Victory records and released a new self-titled album this past Tuesday. If you haven't heard them, I definately suggest checking them out.

Veda (http://www.purevolume.com/veda) - An indie band out of Kansas City, Missouri. They offer a different sound, because they have a female vocalist by the name of Kristen May. I hadn't heard of them until just recently, but they are actually pretty good. Similar to Paramore.

I have albums from both bands, so if you are interested, let me know. Ath this point, YSI isn't working real well for me (because my file converter expired), but you can still get them off me using AIM (EmoScreamoPunk9), or Soulseek (user515). With Soulseek, message me and I will add you to my userlist so you can view my files.

Kif's Sunday Recommendations!

My Awesome Compilation (http://www.purevolume.com/myawesomecompilation) are my first recommendation. Their mixed style of Fall Out Boy's catchy melodies and Jimmy Eat World's heavier riffs, along with the British accent, has got them known a lot here in the UK. Their new album, Actions, provides lots of good fun songs with clever lyrics. Listen to "You Need Discipline" and "Gave You Everything" on their PV.

I Am The Avalanche (http://www.purevolume.com/iamtheavalanche) are up next, who some might know. After the massive Drive-Thru band The Movielife split, vocalist Brandon created this new lighter band. Their somewhat dark riffs and Brandon's matured writing style has won previous unsure Movielife fans over. Their self-titled debut is released in a month's time, and it's brilliant. Listen to "Dead And Gone" and "New Disaster" on their PV.

The Juliana Theory (http://www.purevolume.com/thejulianatheory) have that skill of making catchy and original music. When combined with their impressive lyrics, TJT are a big name in the online music world. Their new release, Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat, is sure to be one of the end of the year's highlights. Listen to "Shotgun Serenade" and "The Final Song" on their PV.

Excuse me for having to use a Myspace, but The New Amsterdams (http://www.myspace.com/thenewamsterdams) deserve to be up here no matter what. Side-project of The Get Up Kids' Matt Pryor, he creates some of the most beautiful lyricary and songwriting that could compete with others like Andrew McMahon and Max Bernis. He released the Killed Or Cured EP as a download only, containing 5 songs. Listen to "Drinking In The Afternoon" and "Strangled By The Thought" on his Myspace.

EDIT: I'll try and upload all these full albums today, so listen to the songs and decide if you want them or not.

Kif's Sunday Recommendations

Socratic (http://www.purevolume.com/socratic) may be one of Drive-Thru's best new signings. Their unique style of music makes every song difficult to categorize, and their debut album Lunch For The Sky is certainly a journey in itself. Incorporating the best elements of pop and classic rock sensibilities, each song unfolds through vivid lyrics and perfect song arrangement. Listen to "Alexandria As Our Lens" and "Lunch For The Sky" on their PV.

Rufio's (http://www.purevolume.com/rufio) arrival on the pop-punk scene in came in the form of the exciting Perhaps, I Suppose.... Their incredibly fast pace, technical and melodic pop-punk riffs and heartfelt lyrics made this one of the top albums of 2002. Now, 3 years on and after the release of their latest offering, The Comfort Of Home, Rufio have remastered undoubtedly their masterpiece, and included 5 exclusive demos. Listen to "Out Of Control" and "Mental Games" for a glimpse of this awesome band.

Stretch Armstrong (http://www.purevolume.com/stretcharmstrong) are that rarity in the scene today that combines hardcore roars and dark riffs, with the punky guitar work and beats that have seemed to be forgotten. Their new album, Free At Last, is said to be their best work yet, and it's got SAS's melodic rock and energetic force you won't find anywhere else. Listen to "The Sound Of Names Dropping" and "For The Record" and check them out.

My American Heart (http://www.purevolume.com/myamericanheart) are my last recommendation. They might not be the most original band around today, but their well written riffs and their infectious melodies make them one hell of a catchy band. Their debut, The Meaning Of Makeup, produced by Sal Villanueva (Taking Back Sunday, Thursday), is sure to get on everyone's stereos. Listen to "The Process" and "Don't Sleep" on their PV.

Uploads are available to download here (http://www.musicianforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=9496917&postcount=5484), so check them out :thumb:

Kif's Sunday Recommendations

I'm sure everyone has heard the news about YSI type links, and that they are banned from MX. What I might do is upload them to my alternate Gmail, and post the password in here. Sorry if this annoys anyone, but it's the best I can do without uploading through AIM all day, which slows my computer down so much.

With Honor (http://www.purevolume.com/withhonor) are a hardcore band, bringing back the older punk riffs and combining them with deep vocals and roaring melodies. They have toured hard over the past 2 years, and are releasing their debut for major indie label Victory Records, This Is Our Revenge later this year. Trust me when I say this band are awesome and will be big! Listen to "Like Trumpets" and "Gun For Hire" on their PV.

Go Betty Go (http://www.purevolume.com/gobettygo) are my next recommendation. This all-girl pop-punk band pull out catchy hooks like many other bands can't, and their harsh riffs and fast beats make them one to look out for. Their debut album Nothing Is More is out now, and has been quite popular in the pop-punk scene. Check out "Son Mis Locur

Valencia (http://www.purevolume.com/valencia) are 5 guys who make feel-good pop-punk songs. Think Hidden In Plain View, but with more variety and structure to their songs. Chirpy melodies and great vocals made them a hit on Purevolume, and their debut album This Could Be A Possibilty will surely get them noticed. Listen to "The Space Between" and "Eagle Mount Drive" on their PV.

Let Go (http://www.purevolume.com/letgo) are my last recommendation. They have a heavy JEW sound, and an ability to combine lush lyrics with hard-hitting pop-punk melodies (Like JEW, then?). Their debut self-titled album is out next month, and has been praised by bands like Jack's Mannequin and Spitalfield. Listen to "Spotlights" and "Paper-Cuts" on their PV.

NOTE: With Honor, much to my dismay, hasn't leaked. The rest of those though have, and I will try and upload them to my Gmail account as soon as I can. Meanwhile, check those bands out if they tickle your fancy.

This weekend, I went to two concerts, and got to see a lot of cool bands. Here a couple of them that I would would definately recommend checking out:

Just Surrender (http://www.purevolume.com/justsurrender) - Pop-punk band out of New York. Their sound is a bit like that of Taking Back Sunday. Really cool live act, too.

Paramore (http://www.purevolume.com/paramore) - Pop-punk band out of Tennesee. I saw them a couple months ago with Story of the Year, and I wasn't really into them. However, I got to see them again on Saturday, and they were pretty awesome.

The Suicide Pact (http://www.purevolume.com/thesuicidepact) - Pop-punk band out of Pennsylvania. I saw them with the Starting Line in May, and they were okay, but their show was kind of boring. However, when I saw them again on Sunday, they were great. They had a lot of energy, and they put on a really good show.

The Mile After (http://www.purevolume.com/themileafter) - Pop-punk band out of North Carolina. Some parts of their songs sounded almost like a mix of country and pop-punk, although for the most part they were just a cool sounding pop-punk band.

The Rival Sonata (http://www.purevolume.com/therivalsonata) - Local band formerly know as Led Astray (http://www.purevolume.com/ledastray). This band is incredible. I saw them with Story of the Year a couple months ago, when they were still known as Led Astray, and it was intense. I had the pleasure of seeing them again last night, and they were even better. If you only check out one of these bands, make sure it's these guys. (Note: to find music, use the link to Led Astray, as The Rival Sonata purevolume currently contains no songs.)

I also recommend Madison (http://www.purevolume.com/madison) and Cute Is What We Aim For (http://www.purevolume.com/cuteiswhatweaimfor),who I have already mentioned before, as well as Day At The Fair (http://www.purevolume.com/dayatthefair) and My American Heart (http://www.purevolume.com/myamericanheart), who have been recently recommended by Kif.

Waking Ashland (http://www.purevolume.com/wakingashland) - Awesome band out of San Diego, California. I've had the pleasure of seeing them live twice. The first time they were good, but nothing special. I saw them again on Thursday, and it was incredible. They played an acoustic set, and it was really great. I've never seen an entirely acoustic set before, but these guys pulled it off excellently.

I also got to see JamisonParker (http://www.purevolume.com/jamisonparker). They were really good, although they only played a couple of songs that I really knew. They still put on a good show, and are a great band on CD.

I have an LP and an EP from each band, so if you are interested, hit me up on AIM (EmoScreamoPunk9).

Kif's Sunday Recommendations:

Gatbsy's American Dream (http://www.purevolume.com/gatsbysamericandream) have always been seperated from the standard pop-punk style of today. Yet they have always been appreciated by fans of the music, for their ability to pull out anthemic tracks one after the next. Their April release Volcano is still getting plays on my media player, and it's no thanks to songs like "A Mind Of Metal And Wheels" and "Shhhhhh! I'm Listening To Reason", both available on their Purevolume. Their unauthodox style of writing (With few chorus', many melodic layers in one song and irregular time signatures and style switching) is surely the reason I love this band. Seriously, listen to "A Mind Of Metal And Wheels" and try and resist that urge to dance along to it's Latin vibe. Check this band out NOW!

Straylight Run (http://www.purevolume.com/straylightrun) have been getting some listens from me after the release of their new EP, Prepare To Be Wrong. If you get a chance to listen to it, be prepared to be wrong indeed. It almost feels like Straylight went Digital Ash In A Digital Urn (Bright Eyes) on us. But tracks like "Hands In The Sky (Big Shot)" and "It Never Gets Easier" (Formerly named "Costello", and unreleased bonus track from their album) remind us of why we love this band in the first place. I apologize for the lack of new material on their Purevolume (Or Myspace for that matter). If I was allowed, I'd upload it.

Ludo (http://www.purevolume.com/ludo) are the shit! Seriously, this is some fantastic "rock opera" material. The melodies are weird and not typical for nowadays sounds, the lyrics are eerie and dark, telling an epic story, and the vocals are great and fit the band well. Their success will only get bigger with the release of their new album, Broken Bride, which boasts ingenius styles and genre-switches. Listen to "Part 1: Broken Bride" and "Save Our City" for a taste of this magnificent band.

Boys Night Out (http://www.purevolume.com/boysnightout) certainly deserve a lot of credit for their latest release, Trainwreck. It's a tale of The Patient, our protagonist who, after murdering his wife in his sleep, seeks to create the song stuck in his mind created by medication, prescribed in the first place to fill the "holes" and loneliness following the murder. Their blend of awkward timings and fantastic melodies, and of course those weird and beautiful lyrics, have made Trainwreck easily one of my favourite albums of the year. Listen to "Medicating" and "Composing", and be in for an amazing surprise.

Panic! At The Disco (http://www.purevolume.com/panicatthedisco) will not stop being whored by me until everyone here loves them. Their infectious mix of Fall Out Boy style melodies, tongue-in-cheek yet never cheesy lyrics, and ability to experiment and bring electronic and world music feeling to their songs means they are never a dull moment. Their debut album, A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, is getting massive praise and huge anticipation from fans, and the fact that they are teasing me with their Purevolume isn't funny either! Check out "Camisado" and "The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage" for this wonderful band.

Kif's... erm... Monday Recommendations

Yikes, this is a little late. I'm not going to lie to you guys. Nearly everything I have been listening to all week involves the words "Panic! At The Disco". But never fear, they shall not be mentioned in this weeks recommendations (I've done my whoring).

Project 86 (http://www.purevolume.com/project86) are a post-hardcore (God I hate that phrase) band from Orange County, and their blend of aggressive bursts of hardcore music blended with soft breakdowns and sometimes more gentle instruments like pianos has got them noticed on Purevolume. Their new album, ...And The Rest Will Follow, is a devilish record. You can listen to it in it's entirety on their Purevolume, but I suggest listening to "The Hand, The Furnace, The Straight Face" and "Necktie Remedy".

HORSE The fu (http://www.purevolume.com/horsetheband)cking Band! (http://www.purevolume.com/horsetheband) Legends of the synth-based hardcore, and dubbed "Nintendo-core" punkers, HORSE The Band release their second effort, The Mechanical Hand, in October. All I can say is WOW! Their writing style has matured somewhat, and although they have sacrificed a little of their harsher sound for more melody, they are still awesome. Listen to "Birdo" and "The Black Hole" on their PV.

KT Tunstall (http://www.myspace.com/kttunstall) is a somewhat odd choice for recommendations, but she is a great up-and-coming musician. Some UK MXers might know, she was nominated for the prestegious Mercury Music Prize for her debut album Eye To The Telescope. Her blend of folk instruments, alternative melodies and memorable lyrics have gotten her name out in the UK. Listen to "Other Side Of The World" and "Black Horse And The Cherry Tree (Live at the Mercury Music Prize)" (I saw her performance, it was amazing) on her Myspace.

Sorry there aren't as many today, afformentioned reasons have been provided

Crackerface's Random Recommendations


Number One Gun: (http://www.purevolume.com/numberonegun)
Great blend of pop-punk and alternative pop (reads purevolume example) and i think they're pretty acely good. On Tooth & Nail records, worth listening to.


Punchline: (http://www.purevolume.com/punchline)
Good band, have a few decent songs, i've definately enjoyed listening to that Fall Out Boy style that so many aquire, but some don't do well, this is good. Signed to Fueled By Ramen, good band.

Kif's Sunday Recommendations
Sorry I missed last weeks, I was a little busy. Anywho, here's today:

Allister (http://www.purevolume.com/allister) have been on my Winamp for a few days now, and I have to say, it's such a fun album. Before The Blackout is an album which perfectly captures the old days of Drive-Thru Records. Perky pop-punk rhythms, fun lyrics, and no stupid themes and/or screaming. Yes, Allister are back and sound better than ever. If you are getting a little tired of this new style pop-punk, check out "A Study in Economics (FULL)" and "Somewhere In Fullerton" on their Purevolume.

John Connor (http://www.myspace.com/johnconnor) are a BAND (Not artist) who make indie-pop songs. Their music changes a lot from relaxing to catchy and addictive to damn right energetic and fun. Their debut release Dance Dance Revolution is set to hit stores on the 18th, and has made a bit of a buzz on Myspace and Purevolume. If you want to hear some fun and well-played indie-pop songs, check out "Dancing Mar Occur" and "You've Get Red On You" on their Myspace (Their PV didn't have the first song, which I absolutely love).

Say Anything (http://www.purevolume.com/sayanything) are getting plays as well, as the re-issue of their cult-classic indie-rock album ...Is A Real Boy dawns near. Now, I personally don't think re-issues nowadays are worth it, slapping a few "rare" songs and a DVD in and price it for $12.99. But the bonus disc of this is worth it alone. 7 tracks which are re-recorded versions of their never-released Say Anything Vs. AIDS CD, they sound brilliant and pure Say Anything angst-rock. If you want to get into this band, listen to "Belt" and "Alive With The Glory Of Love" on their PV.

Neon Blonde (http://www.myspace.com/neonblondebats) are the side-project of Blood Brothers' Johnny Whitney and Mark Gajadhar. Their debut album, Chandeliers In The Savanna, is certainly an interesting listen, and a break from the Brothers' punk mix sound. Piano melodies, dual vocal harmonies, drum machine beats? Yeah, this is a mile from the modern day punk band, but it's an awesome album filled with treats that will make you smile, frown, or at least sit there with your jaw dropped. Check out "Headlines" and "Princess Skullface" on their Myspace.

I haven't recommended any bands in a while, so here are a few awesome one's to check out:

Marathon (http://www.purevolume.com/marathon) - I've been listening to these guys almost non-stop for the last couple of weeks. They have a fairly unique sound in that their songs mix catchy lyrics and melodies, with a slight hardcore edge. I defiantely recommend anyone in need of something new check these guys out. You won't be disappointed.

Smoke or Fire (http://www.myspace.com/smokeorfire) - Awesome melodic hardcore band out of Virginia. They are signed to Fat Wreck Chords, and have a sound very similar to that of A Wilhelm Scream. I predict that these guys will be the next big thing to come from Fat Wreck.

Set It Straight - Hardcore at it's best. I've been addicted to these guys over the past month or so, and their music never becomes boring. Their debut, My Favorite Words is probably my favorite hardcore album in recent memory. They are definately a great band to check out for anyone looking to get into hardcore, or expand their musical tastes.

Note: Due to the swear filter, I have no way to enter the myspace for these guys but still check them out at myspace.com/set it straight, no spaces of course.

Anadivine (http://www.myspace.com/anadivine) - Really cool band out of New York. They have a sound in the vein of Hidden in Plain View, and their music is awesome. I downloaded a couple of their albums about a month ago, without having ever heard of them, but they are truly an amazing band.

Heartcore
10-09-2005, 11:28 AM
Norwegian Bands


Desperado (http://jaguar.intrapoint.no/rw/site/desperado/index.php?c=1&kat=news)
Political hardcore with alot of screaming and incredible cool sound. A little different from many of todays hardcore bands. Their live shows are ****ing amazing.

Torch (http://www.torch69.com)
These guys play a really cool mix of emo/hardcore/metal, and is probably one of the top bands in the scene in Norway. Their live-show is even greater than Desperado because of the pyro-effects and lightshows. (The flames reach so high that the managers of the gig fear that they're gonna burn the whole place down)

Rest of my life (http://www.restofmylife.net)
Emocore with screaming and amazing clean-vocals, raw energy, long melodic parts and strangely crypted lyrics. Really amazing guys.

Daaven (http://www.paal.buildtolearn.net/daaven/)
A band with pop-punk, emo and stone rock influences. Girl by the microphone, a great guitarist, jumping between genre's without ruining the sound, a wild crowd at gigs. That's Daaven.

Chi (http://www.chimusic.org/index.php?page=history)
A Hardcore/Post-hardcore band, with a raw sound. Almost Always drunk at their gigs. It's really a laugh to watch sometimes :lol:

JR Ewing (http://www.thejrewing.com/)
A Post Hardcore band that has really managed to make a name for themselves in Europe. They're new album got nothing but good criticism by everyone, you should check it out. Saw them live at a festival this summer, and i have seriously never seen a bigger moshpit at a hardcore-gig. These guys rule.

I see the similarities, but the musicianship is really weak in comparison.

They remind me more of http://www.purevolume.com/thetokyosmash in that respect.

Everyone should check out Tokyo Smash, by the way. Really cool band.

(at least for the song from their EP on their purevolume, 1. Without You....(bitching), I haven't listened to their new stuff)

Female foursome, i just think you should check them out, i wouldn't listen to them non stop, but have a look how good these people are, they're a bit of a weirdo bunch, but the drummer owned, well at least in the video she did. And by the way, i would listen to 'Running Out Of Things To Say' all day.

I suppose I should give some recommendations for the week, right?

I checked Jenoah's (http://www.purevolume.com/jenoah) Purevolume today, after realizing they have disappeared for ages and checked out their EP again. Anyway, I found out they have a new song on there, and it is awesome. Regardless of the fact that the other 2 songs up there rock as well, I ask you to check out "Openly" and the new song "Southern Breathing Dreams". They play like indie/pop-punk, and are the band Drive-Thru signed along with Hellogoodbye (Back in the day when DTR didn't sign every band they could get their hands on).

The Maple State (http://www.purevolume.com/the_maple_state) are my next recommendation, right after they put 4 new demos on their PV. They are 4 guys from Manchester who play like Early November style pop-punk, extra on the pop. Their sound is pretty great and fun to listen to, and their At Least Until We've Settled In EP is awesome. Check out "Mightiest Monster Mightiest Melodrama Of Them All" and "The Fall Of Shi Gau Rui" on their Purevolume, both are insanely catchy.

In a dying genre, Chiodos (http://www.purevolume.com/chiodos) breathe a breath of fresh air in this new style of pop-punk. Their debut album for Equal Vision, All's Well That Ends Well, has been well received, proving their mix of harsh pop-punk riffs and strong vocals has won them a great fanbase. If you want to check out this band, listen to "One Day Women Will All Become Monsters" and "There's No Penguins In Alaska" on their Purevolume.

Latterman (http://www.myspace.com/latterman) have quickly become on of prized labels Deep Elm Record's best catches. With their sophomore album, No Matter Where We Go..! out now, their infectious Against Me! style of punk rock and shouting has got the album out there more. Check out "Doom! Doom! Doom!" and "My Bedroom Is Like For Artists" on their Myspace (Unclean! Unclean!!1) for a look into this awesome pop-punk band.

/My first ever written review thing about a band.....


The Ordinary Boys. (Indie/Brit pop)
Heavily influenced by the jam, the kinks, and the smiths the ordinary boys bring a fun fresh new sound to the scene. With a mixture of horns, guitar, keys and the brilliant vocal of Sam Preston, they have come up with some epic tracks. Id predict most British would be able to recognise a lot of the tracks of “over the counter culture” with songs such as “week in, week out” and “weekend revolution” getting a fair amount of recognition. There recent full length “Brassbound” is a must have, but “over the counter culture” is 100000 times better IMO.
Recommended songs – Seaside, Little Bitch, List goes on. Also any that is on there my space. http://www.myspace.com/ordinaryboys

I know I’ve whored this band lots recently, but I love them so much.

I’ll recommend some more brit pop/indie bands in times to come.

A great band, I used to listen to them about 3 months ago like non stop and I just popped their CD in today and I remember how much I loved them. It is just two guys from Peoria, Arizona (never heard of it) so go ahead and check them out. I do have 'Interventions and Lullabies' it is a full length release from them so if you enjoy them let me know and I will hook you up.

JamisonParker

I just started listening to them recently but wow, I really like them a lot. The band was formed by two guys, Jamison, and Parker (what a suprise :p) and they have an EP titled Notes & Photographs and a full length titled Sleepwalker. The EP is a little more upbeat than the full length, in fact quite a few songs on the full length are on the slower side. But this doesn't stop it from being great music. So, if you haven't heard them before then I really suggest you go check them out.

P.s. Thanks Brian for talking about them before because I never would have listened to them if you hadn't.
