This thing rules. A clear step up from Planet
Silver Screen in focus and execution. The start
and stop riffage will snap your neck while the
unique Tears For Fears-esque vocals float
satisfyingly on top. The Baron's syncopated
grooves are dense and deep, with pristine
production from Heavy Devy himself. If there is
one dig here, it's that at 51 minutes the album
slightly overstays its welcome with little
deviation in sound.

Every once in awhile you hear something strikingly original that rocks your world. This atypical metal trio is made up of guitar, drums, and cello. Their first full length consists of 4 tracks with a 45 minute run time. Grayceon are primarily an instrumental group, although there are some sparse vocals shared throughout. Comparisons to Apocalyptica and select post-metal outfits are inevitable, yet Grayceon have unique voice among non-traditional metal outfits. Great riffs, haunting melodies and atmosphere galore. You should already be listening to this.

Here she paints her personal roadmap with swathes of funk and soul as she assumes the role she was always meant to play. Herself.

The Sword Used Future
I thought High Country was a great blaze and chill album. Used Future is in the same vein with a subtle shift of the prism.
The Tallest Man on Earth Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird
The Tissues Blue Film
The Voidz Virtue
A Julian Casablancas fever dream invoking the familiar, but distorted and twisted into a barely recognizable monument to depersonalization, all jagged edges and the smell of burnt tungsten heavy in the air.

Torche Songs for Singles
Torche Harmonicraft

Trivium In the Court of the Dragon
Turnstile Turnstile Love Connection
I love Turnstile, but come on this is barely an EP.
Tyler, the Creator Flower Boy
Typhoon (USA-OR) Offerings
Unto Others Strength
Vein Errorzone
We Are Only Human Once Misanthrope
Me & You may be the best song I've heard from these guys, and the whole album is worthy of a listen. It starts off with a Sparklehorse cover for the love...

Weezer Everything Will Be Alright in the End

3.0 good
3 (USA) The End is Begun
311 Don't Tread On Me
311 Mosaic
This kind of sounds like an album written by AI running the 311 algorithm. I'm really not sure if that is a good thing or not.

Beach Bunny Honeymoon
Really well put together indie rock, very strong musically. Lacks discernible personality that would elevate the staid compositions.r
Beachy Head Beachy Head
This must only be gaze adjacent because I actually like it. Give the contemplative rock of 'Michael' a go, and see if it doesn't happen to pull you in.

Chappaqua Wrestling EP1
Cleopatrick Bummer
A few songs like The Drake and Family Van hit hard, but too much of this is an unfocused mess that clearly reveals a lack of songwriting chops. Light on jams but heavy on energy and potential.

Still rehashing the same two songs from Say Anything's self-titled I see. I was hoping for some growth in the songwriting, but at least they are good songs.
