O Pioneers!!! - Neon Creeps

Genre: Punk/Folk Punk/Orgcore
Year: 2009

1. Saved By The Bell Was A Super Good Show
2. The Architect Of Disney World

5. My Life As A Morrissey Song
6. Stressing The Fuck Out
7. I Have A Major Weightlifting Problem
8. Chris Ryan Added Me On Facebook
9. I So Told You So
10. Cool Kid City

These guys are incredibly catchy. I don't really know what to describe their sound as so I just looked up what genre they are. The best thing about them though are the lyrics. Kind of uplifting at times but at the same time pretty sad and easy to relate to. I've been listening to this release a lot recently so I decided to upload it. These guys don't get enough attention and i'm sure the majority of people would enjoy them

Probably one of the biggest powerviolence bands to ever exist besides maybe Infest or Man Is The Bastard or something. In my opinion Spazz is my favorite of the bigger powerviolence bands. I'm sure most people have heard these guys so there isn't a point in saying much but if you haven't these guys rule and are a very good way to get into powerviolence -Jacob Rice

Genre: Hardcore/Doom/Sludge
Year: 2012

1. The Damned
2. Moira

Awesome heavy as shit sludgy hardcore band that submitted their music to me just recently. This stuff is pretty damn angry and gets straight to the point. I would advise checking out their other EP on their bandcamp. Check it out! -Jacob Rice

Carissa's Wierd - Songs About Leaving

Genre: Indie/Shoegaze?/Slowcore?
Year: 2002

1. You Should Be Hated Here
2. Silently Leaving The Room
3. So You Wanna Be A Superhero
4. September Come Take This Heart Away
5. Ignorant Piece Of Shit
6. The Piano Song
7. They'll Only Miss You When You Leave
8. A New Holiday (November 16th)
9. Farewell To All These Rotten Teeth
10. Sofisticated Fuck Princess Please Leave Me Alone
11. Low Budget Slow Motion Soundtrack Song For Leaving Scene
12. (March 19th, 1983) It Was Probably Green

This is probably the saddest release ever. Some of the songs, in example So You Wanna Be A Superhero literally are the sound of depression. These guys are so under rated in my opinion its sad. Two of the guys from this band went on to form Band Of Horses which is also a really good band in my opinion but is a completely different sound from this. I don't even know what genre to put this in so thats why I put the question marks, either way don't sleep on this one and get it now -Jacob Rice

Keep and eye on this band, they already have a demo out before this EP, and they are bound to get big. They are definitely one of the bands on my list of bands i want to see before the year is over. Will it happen? probably not. But i can be hopeful.

1. Alpha
2. Lykaon
3. Bridge of Hope
4. Omega

Melodic hardcore band all the way from Germany! These guys sent me their music and its a little bit darker sounding than most melodic hardcore that I usually hear. Some of the riffs on this are actually getting pretty skramzy at times and even his vocals are pretty skramzy at parts. I dig this one pretty hard. Check it out!

Its like The World Is... and Moving Mountains had a baby and it turned into this just beautiful post rock emo baby. This things starts out strong and ends very strong. Get this one PS. You can go buy the album on Bandcamp and support them

Marietta/Modern Baseball - Couples Therapy

Genre: Emo/Twinkle
Year: 2012

1. Yeah Yeah, Utah

Modern Baseball:
3. Hope

Split from two awesome emo bands from PA. Marietta being a little more aggressive and twinkly while Modern Baseball brings a bit of a softer but still pretty forward lyrically side. I got this Split recommended  by someone on tumblr but I can't remember who. So if you see this, thanks for the heads up because this is a really solid release and i've listened further into both bands and they both have some other solid releases. Check this one out! -Jacob Rice

This is an awesome crossover band from Detroit. I've been listening to these dudes since they released Destroy Everything Worship Nothing back in 2009. These guys play some high energy and anger filled thrashy hardcore. The lyrics are on the political side, as well as on the against religion sometimes. Sometimes they skew off to random subjects such as violence etc. Either way, these guys are really solid and brought something new to the table and will hopefully continue to once they release a new full length. -Jacob Rice

There is much more than just that to this album though. I highly advise getting this one -Jacob Rice

Year: 2011


1. Intro/Two Thousand Years Of Pain
2. Demise Of Man
3. Wagemaster
4. God Of Wealth
5. Human Scum
6. America
7. Passion Of The Christ/ Control

Get It!

Female fronted powerviolence from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I picked this 7" up after i had the chance to meet Emily, who did vocals for the band, about a year ago. She was working at a record/cd store in Pittsburgh that i happened to stop into with a friend of mine. We talked about what bands that we both were into and what was cool to do in Pittsburgh. She told me that she use to be in a PV band called Masochrist, so i ended up looking them up, enjoying it, and buying the EP from Give Praise about 2 weeks later. Emily is cool, so was her band. They broke up, but you can still find the 7" from different distros and shit. Id say go for it. Very scrappy recordings, but so raw, and sooo pissed.

Check this one out, these dudes deserve some attention-Jacob Rice

So, remember before, when i posted the How We Are EP, and said how they were one of my favorite bands from Rochester, NY? Well this is my absolute favorite band from there. Being from the area, i was able to see this band many, many times, in multiple venues in Rochester, with so many bands of all genres.
They played their final show abruptly on May 24th of this year, and i was lucky enough to be there for it. If you like bands like Drive Like Jehu, "In Utero" era Nirvana, and even Black Cross, you're bound to dig this. Powerful lyrics, written by one of the nicest guys Ive ever met, with music thats just as strong.

If you like Hot Water Music, Jawbreaker, Title Fight, or Polar Bear Club, you're definitely going to like this. Keep an eye on these guys.
