  • TalonsOfFire Don't let the haters get you down you staff i mean you could just permaban they asses if they talkin' smack bout your taste hahaha
    November 22 10:23 PM
  • TalonsOfFire I don't know about that, not everyone is like Artuma if you're thinking of what he said in that thread a little while back.
    November 22 10:04 PM
  • TalonsOfFire Aw thought you would still be in the 290s in your reviews and was gonna suggest you do your 300th for black album, could really use a staff rev, especially one who has the perspective of being 5/5
    November 22 11:19 AM
  • trackbytrackreviews Yeah I saw that, I was reading the... mini-reviews? and I saw your rating down there; I really like reading your... mini-reviews that you post on the comments. Since there's no review for it and I'm a big fan, I'll review sometime this or next week.
    November 19 06:06 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews What did you think of the latest Alesana album?
    November 19 12:53 PM
  • NorwichScene I'd be very interested to know if Young Guns album made your top 40. It was let down of the year for me
    November 19 09:21 AM
  • NorwichScene Just done my AOTY list. I'm preparing for the haters again lol
    November 19 08:10 AM
  • skoopy48 I did not, they kinda remind me of man overboard/handguns, just a bit too corny for me.
    November 13 04:28 PM
  • Toondude10 It's a bit more poppy yeah but I still really like it. I think it's better than Odd Soul at least.
    November 13 08:58 AM
  • Toondude10 New Mutemath is out, just thought you'd like to know.
    November 13 08:02 AM
  • skoopy48 Ah ok, yeah let me give it another listen. I would highly recommend the new Pentimento album though.
    November 13 01:46 AM
  • skoopy48 What don't you like about it? I thought it was really pretty and I enjoyed the vocals among other things.
    November 12 06:52 PM
  • skoopy48 Uh oh, lemme give it another whirl
    November 12 10:27 AM
  • SowingSeason Cool, hope all is well
    November 12 07:00 AM
  • SowingSeason Well I'll await that announcement, I hope it's not what I think because you're one of the best around.
    November 12 06:14 AM
  • SowingSeason Olympus early?
    November 12 03:57 AM
  • NorwichScene Jeez just seen your comments number. I should use Sputnik more lol
    November 12 03:35 AM
  • SowingSeason I don't know about that whole me-surpassing-you thing, you've been a machine lately and I haven't been nearly as active as I have in the past. Not that it matters, lol. Hopefully we are both still around reviewing for a while .
    November 12 03:15 AM
  • ASnideReturns The new Coldrain is great, much better production, faster and harder than their previous releases.
    November 7 02:28 AM
  • CL0VER Maybe one or two of the new tracks fall flat, but the rest are all as stellar as the EP. Also the two bonus tracks are godly.
    November 6 08:31 PM
  • schoonda A definite departure for sure, however after weapons I feel this has more potential, and is much better as a whole
    November 6 07:32 PM
  • Atari I'm the same way man haha. I really don't have many negative ratings at all
    November 6 05:32 PM
  • Toondude10 neat! can't wait! :D
    November 6 07:47 AM
  • Atari if you just check out 3-4 songs make sure valentine is one of them ;) honestly it's not a fantastic album prolly a 3/5 for me but I just love that song
    November 5 07:03 PM
  • Toondude10 really missing Sputnik Discusses rn :-(
    November 5 08:54 AM
  • Atari if you haven't heard seasons change - please don't leave I think you'd really enjoy it. pretty similar to state champs - nothing original about them, but catchy as hell
    November 4 02:20 PM
  • SowingSeason It's weird that's the single if his vocal lead is an anomaly...and at the risk of sounding naive/American, should I have heard of California?
    November 3 05:32 AM
  • SowingSeason You're definitely right about how catchy it is; I thought the song was just okay but I haven't been able to get it out of my head for hours after just one listen haha.
    November 3 04:39 AM
  • theacademy belatedthanks for the mel rec... good shiiiiit
    November 2 09:52 AM
  • SowingSeason Can't say I've heard of them, but would be willing to give them a chance. Have a song to recommend?
    November 2 09:13 AM
  • Arcade saw it on the shelf at work yesterday so bought it there and then, didn't anticipate it at all lol. but yeah, the whole album is indicative of "Let's Go"- that is, flat and pragmatic rewrites of songs they did far better on Hysteria and Pyromania. Joe's vocals are especially s***e : (
    November 1 06:57 AM
  • Arcade very unimpressive stuff agreed
    November 1 05:07 AM
  • Arcade thoughts on new def leppard?
    November 1 04:19 AM
  • Jacquibim Bro I have renounced my metalhead ways I'm all about Joanna Newsom now for I was lost but now am found
    October 31 12:56 AM
  • Jacquibim Was it pretty not good? idk I've never voluntarily listened to a DL song -engages flame shield-
    October 31 12:29 AM
  • Jacquibim Get the hype train rolling yo it'll be TPAB all over again
    October 31 12:24 AM
  • Jacquibim I don't see why not?
    October 30 11:31 PM
  • Jacquibim Holy hell, I never realised you had 299 reviews! Got anything planned for number 300?
    October 30 07:23 AM
  • JonEthan Would you have any good recs for pop music Davey? I've been trying to get into some older stuff that ain't the Beatles.
    October 28 12:40 AM
  • skoopy48 Ah, ok, well my knowledge with 80's music is sadly lacking, but I definitely wouldn't be surprised if they were stealing melodies. They even seem to copy themselves sometimes (this means war especially sounds eerily similar) I think this one is definitely more over the top to coincide with the Goonies theme I guess.
    October 21 03:44 PM
  • skoopy48 Yeah its kinda overblown and cheesy, but there is an energy level that is missing from most other pop rock bands that makes it more enjoyable for me. And jeez with those hooks I don't know why you aren't running towards it 5 in hand. There's definitely a couple filler songs (Shut up and kiss me and one love) so I may bring it down to a 3.5, but its definitely no 1.5.
    October 20 08:46 PM
  • skoopy48 I think that's part of the appeal for me. Its kinda refreshing to hear the Queen esque harmonies and raw vocal talent in the overproduced pop world now. I also think that they are one of the few pop bands that can be somewhat unpredictable with their song structures and tempo changes but at the same time just very very catchy. I think that they excel in writing catchy pop albums that can be enjoyed as a whole.
    October 20 08:42 PM
  • schoonda Given the new No Devotion LP a spin yet?
    October 7 05:36 PM
  • elcrawfodor Alright Davey, I'm gonna need some darker female pop along the lines of that Meg Myers album, seriously I can't stop listening to it.
    October 6 01:00 AM
  • skoopy48 It depends on if you enjoyed the first album or not, because it sounds pretty similar. I'm a sucker for just about anything Jonny Craig but the album is kinda generic and long. I wouldn't listen expecting to be blown away, but as a fan of his past stuff I found it pretty decent.
    October 3 12:44 PM
  • Toondude10 Introducing a much less s***tier version of Dance Gavin Dance! http://orangesmusic.bandcamp.com/
    September 25 08:34 AM
  • Toondude10 how about I give you a song instead? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKy60ZE7pHo
    September 19 09:43 AM
  • Toondude10 They're like neo-prog metal. kinda like Roshloo, Arcane, Haken, stuff like that. Don't know if you're into that but if you are then I'd recommend them.
    September 19 08:42 AM
  • schoonda I can't be alone in thinking that they would come back softer than previous efforts. Boy was I wrong.
    September 13 06:10 PM
  • schoonda https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJxGrStt5ws please tell me you're excited as I am for the new Fightstar album.
    September 12 08:28 PM
  • SowingSeason She's great. I the energy in her vocal style. "Here" is brilliant.
    September 12 03:36 PM
  • Toondude10 awesome, it's a great album too.
    September 6 10:09 AM

    September 6 12:12 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges dearly missing sputnik discusses :( [2]
    September 5 11:29 PM
  • Toondude10 Well that's okay, cuz I'm gonna review it. Hopefully before Rowan s***s all over it :-)
    September 3 03:51 PM
  • Toondude10 Well it's awesome as usual, just to let you know ;-)
    September 1 09:34 AM
  • Arcade dearly missing sputnik discusses :(
    September 1 12:16 AM
  • Toondude10 The new Dear Hunter album comes out this week!
    August 31 09:11 PM
  • Jom Adding it to the list. Cheers for the recommendation!
    August 28 01:20 PM
  • Mort. ahh fair enough. i too am slacking on 2015 releases. anyway, i look forward to their return
    August 28 11:37 AM
  • Mort. whatever happened to the sputnik disccuses posts? i rather enjoyed them
    August 28 10:45 AM
  • Willie No problem. I really like that Atlas Losing Grip album. I wanted to review it, but never had the chance. You might also try Pyogenesis - A Century in the Curse of Time. The first song might be too 'metal' but I could see you liking the rest. It came out in August in Europe and will come out in September in the US (don't know about Australia).
    August 24 02:11 PM
  • Toondude10 Did you ever listen to that new Hey Rosetta! album at all?
    August 17 05:42 PM
  • Toondude10 Since I know you like Dead Letter Circus, their new album just came out. But wheeeeeew it stinks.
    August 16 09:09 PM
  • Deviant. It's kinda hard to say with you honestly. I'd say it has more luck than most to win you over. It's certainly catchy, in a bedroom producer kind of way
    August 15 11:29 PM
  • Toondude10 Yeah their debut album is great. Granted it's not particularly original but the vocals are so good.
    August 12 10:18 AM
  • Toondude10 Here you go Davey, just discovered these guys on a lark yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SuS8RXor0BA
    August 11 06:21 PM
  • schoonda Never really got into them, the singles from their debut LP are rad and Bones is just amazing, but for some reason they just didn't click for me. Just listened to rising up, can't say I was too impressed however.
    August 8 09:53 PM
  • schoonda interested what you think of the new don broco album. not 100% sold to be honest, but definitely catchy!
    August 8 12:28 AM
  • Toondude10 well I guess that's fair enough. which one you think will be next?
    August 6 09:14 PM
  • Toondude10 when is Sputnik Discusses coming back?
    August 5 12:35 PM
  • BeneaththeDarkOcean Hey Davey! Listening to that new Sasha Siem, pretty crazy sounds out of that record. You gonna do a review?
    July 28 06:08 PM
  • RoundOnEndHiInMiddle Thanks Davey! But yeah, give it a jam sometime. Pretty solid stuff
    July 23 05:17 AM
  • Toondude10 I just remembered, you haven't listened to the new Hey Rosetta! album yet.
    July 17 09:18 PM
  • Toondude10 you know, with albums being released on Firday now, how about a discussion? I know I've been rec-ing a lot of these but it's just a thought.
    July 11 12:29 PM
  • Toondude10 fair enough, I liked that album a bit even though it's not really original. Has a kind of Muse vibe to it. (At least for me it does unlike Red XP)
    July 11 12:10 PM

  • Fugue Hah, as if anyone else even remembers who I am :P I'm thinking of giving the FFS album a go actually. You heard it?
    July 9 07:55 PM
  • Ponton if i am sober enough to vote it will
    July 6 08:49 PM
  • Toondude10 yeah that is pretty much my overall opinion of it as well. Right now the average for it is perfect for me. Though the last three songs are great imo.
    July 4 08:29 PM
  • Atari just looking out for you cause i know you reviewed their last one - it is slightly underwhelming at first but gets more enjoyable with repeated listens. still, i know he's capable of better and it would be nice if he put out an entire solo album rather than just EP's
    June 29 07:51 PM
  • Atari new anthony raneri EP is out if you didn't notice
    June 29 12:51 PM
  • Fugue I'm also being worked like a slave IRL, but in return I'm being taken to Germany for the next 5 days so that's pretty exciting I guess. Also kinda maybe feeling a review coming on, haven't really stretched my writing skills in a while - and I've just noticed that like the Nostradamus I am, my prediction of a new Foals album this year was indeed correct! Quite enjoying the blogs btw.
    June 23 05:33 PM
  • CalculatingInfinity I do since I follow Botchamania and OSW Review, it had too much of a big impact on my life and I love the dumb s***/complexities in the wrestling industry so much I can't not stay in touch. If you have 2 hours free someday I highly recommend you watch this, OSW reviewed Summerslam 92 which is Davey's biggest moment in wrestling. They reviewed the whole Hulkamania era if you're intrested, hilarious lads: https://vimeo.com/68310381
    June 23 09:30 AM
  • CalculatingInfinity Just saw your profile, and British Bulldog picture and reference nice. "There is no bull, in this British Bulldog" ;)
    June 23 09:07 AM
  • Mort. no Enter Shikari ratings Davey, that needs to be fixed
    June 23 07:55 AM
  • Fugue sup
    June 22 04:57 PM
  • elcrawfodor You said to let you know next time I had a review for feedback, well it's here three months later, concept-album free. I know metal isn't your forte but would appreciate anything you had to say!
    June 19 08:07 PM
  • Toondude10 I'll admit I thought it was a little too long at first but then I remembered it's a concept album :P
    June 19 07:23 AM
  • Toondude10 Did you listen to that new Dear Hunter song?
    June 18 10:19 PM
  • Atari just based on the 2 songs i've heard from the new album, it does sound pretty similar to their last album, but still great. I'm just glad you're reviewing it, they're underrated and deserve some more exposure on sput!
    June 18 07:59 PM
  • Atari i see your jamming the new versus the world! you get a promo? on another note, you should check out sorority noise, i think you'd dig
    June 18 04:03 PM
  • Toondude10 You know with Breaking Benjamin's new album I just thought of a discussion topic: Reunions! Some of your favorite bands from the past reuniting after a hiatus or break-up and possibly doing new material. I've got a couple of bands I can think of (*cough* Tool *cough*).
    June 16 11:01 PM
  • Toondude10 Yeah I'll admit it's probably their weakest since their debut. It has a few pretty good songs though.
    June 16 09:01 AM
  • Toondude10 Dear Hunter song came out http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2u1i7e_the-dear-hunter-a-night-on-the-town_music
    June 15 06:06 PM
  • Toondude10 Did you ever listen to this yet or is it still on your "delayed" list? https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-XbTEkQt3TZO1wznlyvZpbotymY6PDvy
    June 14 08:15 PM
  • Atari *their new album
    June 13 08:35 PM
  • Atari Sounds good man! Funny enough I was gonna tell u the other day u should review there new album haha. Seems like it was forever ago they announced homesick/roadsick honestly.
    June 13 08:34 PM
  • Ecnalzen Sometimes, I think I am just a sucker for Gustav's singing voice, and I probably won't ever really dislike anything the do purely for that, ha ha. They pretty much went straight pop/rock on here, but I still think it turned out fine. It's even more stripped down musically than Bones was from Kings. They were going for the hooks, I guess. SwS have some fun stuff, but I just can't handle that dudes singing voice.
    June 12 09:52 PM
  • Ecnalzen I just noticed the new Young Guns has been getting crapped on a bit here, so I was curious what you thought of it. I def don't think it's better than their first two, but I still really like it, and I'm glad they haven't tried to make the same album twice yet.
    June 12 01:31 PM
  • Ecnalzen Have you heard new Young Guns and/or Emery, yet, Davey?
    June 11 03:29 PM
  • paradox1216 Oh man I concur with atari do the silverstein discographyBut anyway I'm here to say that you calling me Double D reminds me of my elementary school days :D so nostalgic lol
    June 6 01:47 AM
  • Atari how have you not heard silverstein's discog srsly
    June 5 01:40 PM
  • Toondude10 Kerrang! gave it a 5/5 and it's at an 84 on Metacritic last time I checked.
    June 5 07:36 AM
  • Toondude10 Lol, well I'd consider it, half-hype or something. After all it is on the trending list :P
    June 4 07:25 PM
  • Toondude10 found a stream for Drones if you're interested: http://www.goldenmp3.ru/muse/drones
    June 4 01:18 PM
  • Toondude10 ah okay then
    June 3 09:17 AM
  • SowingSeason Huh that is weird. I figured you weren't into her enough to dl a leak but cool!
    June 3 08:38 AM
  • SowingSeason New Zella Day is out. I think you'd like it. Because you're me.
    June 3 08:25 AM
  • Toondude10 Also I haven another idea for a discussion (I'm practically throwing them at you :P), how about local bands? Not just small time bands that you've seen/heard at a concert some 20 years ago, although they're included, but even famous bands that I'm sure most people on the site will know about.
    June 2 09:03 PM
  • Toondude10 ah, okay. That's a good topic to do I guess. I do enjoy me some acoustic songs every now and then.
    June 2 08:47 PM
  • Toondude10 Just curious, will the next discussion be the one on covers?
    June 2 08:36 PM
  • OmairSh Oh okay, thanks anyway
    May 30 09:11 PM
  • OmairSh Hey I just wanted to ask how to embed a soundcloud link in a review?
    May 30 04:05 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews Is there a rule against having scary gifs/images as your avatar?
    May 27 05:19 PM
  • Toondude10 Did you ever listen to that new 10 Years album?
    May 26 06:48 PM
  • tempest-- hahaha I came here to be like "omg Davey, Def Leppard Aus tour!" looks like Arcade here beat me to it!
    May 25 10:49 AM
  • Arcade perth is basically the anus of Australia in fairness
    May 25 10:33 AM
  • Arcade was surprised by how few dates there are. and wtf is with Live opening? crazy times, i tell ya
    May 25 09:33 AM
  • Arcade it's a midrange open air amphitheater, so i guess they're going for a more intimate air this time around. last time they played NIB Stadium so it's a fair step down in terms of capacity
    May 25 07:27 AM
  • Arcade this will be my first time seeing them, seeing as they were my favourite band for a solid year in high school i feel I owe it myself
    May 25 04:28 AM
  • Arcade so on a scale from 9 to 9, how excited are you for the Def Leppard tour?
    May 24 08:48 PM
  • Toondude10 Yeah it's a pretty decent album, though some of the songs sound too similar to each other.
    May 20 10:11 AM
  • Toondude10 here you go, just discovered these guys and thought you might enjoy this: https://play.spotify.com/album/0FyPTDIxMz7vdDltTfLcce
    May 19 12:17 PM
  • Toondude10 gosh there so much things about music to talk about :P
    May 18 07:16 PM
  • Toondude10 here's another idea for a discussion: concept albums
    May 18 10:17 AM
  • Toondude10 That's a neat idea! I'd say go for it.
    May 18 10:12 AM
  • Jom When people complain that their ratings disappeared due to trolling, I tell them that we're in the same boat, with one obvious exception!
    May 12 03:51 PM
  • AmericnZero02 Great! I'm really glad you liked those records. Before the Storm and I Know I are a couple of my favorites. I slightly prefer Burn also. I enjoyed the more moody atmosphere of Isla along with it being a more varied album. but the hooks weren't quite on par with Burn and it has a bit more filler. Like you said, probably a transitional album. They're already working on their third album so we won't have to wait long to see where they go next!
    May 11 11:33 AM
  • Brostep Will definitely check him out - thanks for the tip-off!
    May 8 12:50 PM
  • Toondude10 Introducing the greatest music video of all time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTidn2dBYbY
    May 7 10:19 AM
  • SowingSeason I have not been fostering, but if I come up with something I'll let you know immediately!
    April 30 04:11 AM
  • SowingSeason Do you want to write about the new Breaking Benjamin June 23? I don't think I'll be able to/want to when that time rolls around...
    April 28 11:46 AM
  • AmericnZero02 Ok, yeah. That TCTT record is really good. Not the most varied of albums, but really polished and leagues more mature than most bands' debut. I'm looking forward to see what those guys do in the future.
    April 25 05:22 PM
  • Toondude10 Thanks! Yeah it's kinda disappointing honestly but there are some really solid songs, especially the last three.
    April 24 09:16 AM
  • Toondude10 That new 10 Years album is out in case if your interested.
    April 24 08:08 AM
  • trackbytrackreviews Any chance you could chance the name of mewithoutyou's fourth album to it's full title aka It's All Crazy! It's All False! It's All a Dream! It's Alright, pretty please
    April 19 09:26 PM
  • SowingSeason I quite like your list but I'm not familiar with all of it. I'll check the Olympus list too I'm sure there's great ideas in there. And yeah, if someone I don't know shows up and drinks the bar clean out of beer, I'll know who to blame (Ponton). People say married life is different, what's your experience? I don't expect much to change honestly, been w/ this girl for 3 years and prior to that was 5 years of unrequited love and Yellowcard songs - me, not her unfortunately.
    April 8 05:48 AM
  • SowingSeason Ooh cool thanks. I already had every intention of including Anberlin's " Inevitable " but I'll check out the others I haven't heard of. I'm trying to find that small area of overlap between cliche romantic pop and hipster indie music. Anberlin is the closest to total agreement as the fiancee and I have come so far. I know it will end up being more of the cliche stuff though because the less accessible stuff simply doesn't work for a wedding...
    April 8 04:04 AM
  • SowingSeason staff peeps for recs that would be more wedding suitable. I forget how long ago it was but I seem to recall you did something similar? So yeah anyway we're at that stage right now where it's becoming very real that it's actually going to happen and we're tackling smaller items we never would have thought of from a year away, such as seating arrangements. It's gonna be an open bar so I have this sneaking suspicion that Ponton, Dev will show up outta nowhere.
    April 8 02:51 AM
  • SowingSeason Annual leave for jobs you mean? If so then yeah, we don't get much. Depends on a lot of things of course, like your profession and how long you've been there. I miss summers off while teaching, that was amazing. As far as the wedding goes I'm getting married July 18 so yeah its right around the corner. I'm actually putting together some music but I don't want it to be the s*** I listen to because you can't really dance to Brand New or The Antlers lol. May have to consult some
    April 8 02:46 AM
  • SowingSeason It depends on the university, but most of them just have a Spring Semester and a Fall Semester, then offer summer classes as a means of speeding things up or catching up in terms of credits. And most colleges already had their spring breaks, although it's possible some people could still be of lf for Easter. The only person I know who is still in college didn't have off for Easter, so she went back Monday.
    April 7 07:45 PM
  • AmericnZero02 No worries, it's a big country. Seems like every other band I get into these days is from Australia.
    April 4 03:28 PM
  • AmericnZero02 The new one is a little slower and moodier, both are about equally great though. I've been really liking those TTCT tracks that I've checked out so far. I'll probably go pick that record up next week!
    April 3 10:37 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hehe I actually have to take that criticsm positively, in that I'm glad you thought the review had so much going on. but, if you think I could have a lighter intro, I'll see if I can work that idea into my next writeup
    April 3 03:20 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot sup Davey. i took your advice on that T'Saatsuna review you looked at a while back and tried to eliminate the first-person element in my reviewing. anyway, if you find time to check out my latest and lemme know if you prefer the change in style, I'd appreciate it

  • AmericnZero02 Hey hey, thanks for the reminder on that one. I read your review the other day but then forgot to actually listen to the record. haha. I'll let you know how much I end up liking it! I'm really enjoying Young Lions' new record if you needed a rec.
    March 30 03:03 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews You gave Black Parade a 4.5? High 5!
    March 28 04:06 PM
  • Toondude10 True, but still I find it ****ing hilarious
    March 28 08:09 AM
  • henryChinaski He was regarded as a great talent, but they say he was bothered about all the media attention and the pressure prominent young Bundesliga players usually get
    March 28 03:56 AM
  • henryChinaski Broich definitely has what it takes to become one of the best. He even played for the German national team a couple of times (back in the day)
    March 28 03:53 AM
  • PorkchopExpress Hey yo, I'm sorry I'm barely on here anymore, and I *just* saw your shoutbox about Tobias Jesso Jr. I saw your review though, and it was great!
    March 28 12:05 AM
  • ExplosiveOranges Lol, I'd heard "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and "Rock of Ages" a long time ago, but only recently started really listening to their other stuff during the 80's.
    March 27 11:38 PM
  • ExplosiveOranges Davey, I've finally gotten around to jamming Def Leppard, and I have to say that I'm pretty damn impressed.
    March 27 11:33 PM
  • Toondude10 I think I found your next Sputnik Discusses blog http://mic.com/articles/113796/this-map-reveals-every-state-s-least-favorite-musician
    March 27 10:13 AM
  • henryChinaski he seems to be pretty popular down under. There's even a movie from a German director about his move to Australia
    March 27 08:59 AM
  • henryChinaski I've been following Thomas Broich's career since he went to Brisbane. He used to play for Cologne which sort of is my hometown
    March 27 08:55 AM
  • schoonda You've given it very high praise I can see! From the few songs i checked I can't say its really doing much for me, might need to give it more time.
    March 26 06:47 PM
  • klap was reviewing this lineup http://www.thebolditalic.com/articles/7109-heres-your-outside-lands-lineup-for-2015 and saw GIVERS?!? they coming out w a new album this year??
    March 26 05:11 PM
  • elephantREVOLUTION geez davey. i'm gonna try to listen to this a couple more times. it better be a grower
    March 25 12:26 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews is it the new emery
    March 24 10:06 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews It wasn't up when I asked D:
    March 24 01:22 PM
  • Cygnatti i guess they kinda phased out. they released a single a year ago with the caption "probably the last sweet trip song ever." which has since then (months after) been edited to "probably NOT the last sweet trip song ever", so there's hope for new material! whether or not in the pop/rock vein of this album, or the idm works of their past material, i'd happily accept!
    March 24 09:07 AM
  • Cygnatti lolololol no i'm not joking. yeah the genre tags don't accurately represent the last album made by the band, barely any shoegaze and no idm whatsoever, and it's basically just a really really good pop rock record with indie sensibilities and synth/electropop thrown in for good measure. not gonna be as immediate or outward as a lot of the stuff you jam but it's a bit more chilled and laid back. i really do hope you dig it. :]
    March 23 07:54 PM
  • trackbytrackreviews Hey DaveyBoy, do you happen to know when this year's best album chart goes live?
    March 23 11:31 AM
  • Cygnatti davey, jam this pls. :] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqPiiRoqfZY

  • elcrawfodor Glad you liked the idea so much, haha! Also, I just put up a review, and as a Staff member would you mind looking over it with any criticisms that you have? Really wanting to improve my writing.
    March 19 07:47 PM
  • elcrawfodor Hmm off the top of my head, I think album artwork would be an interesting topic. The way it relates to the music, whether it should be taken into consideration when we look at the album as a whole, whether or not it means anything when the artwork changes with reissues, etc. I could do a short write up for a prompt if you'd like
    March 19 10:57 AM
  • elcrawfodor Hey man, just wanted to let you know I've really been enjoying the Sputnik Discusses features you've been doing. It's been a great way to start intelligent conversations on here beyond "this riffs hard m/" haha
    March 19 12:41 AM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot lol maybe he could edit the artist name and put a space or whatever might help
    March 16 06:40 PM
  • JohnnyOnTheSpot hey davey, dunno how big you are on giving review criticism, but if you're willing to look at my latest and lemme know what you think I'd appreciate it. could use some unbiased feedback once in a while
    March 16 06:24 PM
  • donovan909 I wasn't sure how to reach out to the staff to submit a review, but obviously, it would be total bs to be reviewing myself.... I just released my self-titled debut and posted the link below. It would be an honor (no matter the outcome of the review!) to be reviewed on here.Cheers, Donovanhttps://donovancox.bandcamp.com/releases
    March 11 04:19 PM
  • Crysis Cheers man, really glad you like it as I didn't want to be the guy to derail the series as soon as you let someone else give it a shot. Seems like the discussion will be a lot of long posts so we'll see if we get a lot of people to bite and jump in.
    March 10 08:49 PM
  • klap i enjoyed it for about the first half, but then the conceit sort of wore on me
    March 10 11:53 AM
  • psandy I suppose i didn't quite think of that, but you're right. I'll pick it back up after this new Mouse isn't on constant rotation. Looking forward to your next review, I'm a big fan of yours.
    March 9 08:49 PM
  • psandy Hey, sorry for the late reply. I thought it was an enjoyable listen, I've been thru it about twice. It seems a bit safe to me, nothing no one hasn't heard before, but pretty good nevertheless. Lyrics are very early 80's, probably my main complaint.
    March 9 08:14 PM
  • Atari i'll post in there in a bit. can't really think of any band from my hometown off the top of my head haha
    March 4 03:54 PM
  • Atari alright just wanted to make sure i wasn't stepping on your toes. Cheers!
    March 4 03:23 PM
  • Atari hey man let me know if you decide not to review the new daisyhead because if you're not i might request a feature to get the band some more exposure. Otherwise, it's all yours :]
    March 4 01:38 PM
  • Kiran Just post her video in a Weakerthans thread and you've got a party. Her wry sense of humour alone will make half the site gush!
    March 4 10:44 AM
  • Kiran I'm good, Davey, thanks, and I hope you are too. Re: the record, I have and it is a dream. How is the buzz down under? I bet she's just taking off
    March 3 12:38 PM
  • someguest Definitely. Rehfeldt can play just about anything he wants. I had my ratings wiped quite some time ago. I don't assign ratings to anything anymore.
    March 1 01:14 AM
  • someguest This is probably my favorite from him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7QaKxfa2kI
    March 1 01:07 AM
  • SowingSeason Thanks. I kind of lost interest because I'd keep getting 2-4 users to volunteer for each song, yet practically no one followed through. I haven't given up on it, I've just acknowledged that it may take a really long time because I may find myself filling in a lot of the blurbs that were supposed to be done by the userbase.
    February 25 03:54 AM
  • SowingSeason I have no idea when that converge article will be done, I'm still waiting on user submissions. It could be months haha. So fire away!
    February 25 01:30 AM
  • RadicalEd I only listened to "The Woods" prior to "No Cities to Love" and i wasn't really thaaat keen on it (3.0) although it's highly regarded. I did love "No Cities to Love" though. Try "A new Wave".
    February 22 07:57 AM
  • RadicalEd While were at it, have you heard "No cities to love"? If so what did you think of it?
    February 22 03:41 AM
  • RadicalEd rutracker is a torrent site like piratebay
    February 22 03:11 AM
  • Green Baron yo davey do u got an email or maybe a facebook or any place where we can privately chat about stuff?
    February 20 10:19 PM
  • NocteDominum I hear you, what's next on the reviewing chopping block?
    February 18 06:01 AM
  • NocteDominum Sup Davey.
    February 18 03:46 AM
  • ComeToDaddy It's a fine line to walk too, deeper and more thought provoking topics could scare some people off, because they don't feel qualified/educated enough to talk about it. But there's only one way to find out (; if I come up with any particularly interesting ideas for the column, I'll throw them your way
    February 17 09:27 PM
  • ComeToDaddy Cheers Davey, I'll be looking forward to that post. I've always been a sucker for multi-part albums and concepts, and will have loads to talk about when that happens.Also really loving the 'Sputnik Discusses' feature, it's a great idea to get people more involved. I hope it can maintain this level of popularity and discussion the longer it goes on, will be in there regularly trying to help get the ball rolling

    February 17 08:03 PM
  • Hep Kat check out this band, they're awesome. fingers crossed an LP drops this year: http://supercrush.bandcamp.com
