Planeside – Under the circumstances it’s not such a bad idea… (CD)

Planeside – Under the circumstances it’s not such a bad idea… is an engrossing album. It offers six songs clocking in just under twenty minutes. Daniella the first track a pop-punk diddy about a girl, just the way it should be upbeat and a play off the pain reminds me of the summer of 97′ ya know when me and some guys started a band tried real hard?

Dead Heart Bloom – Fall In (CD)

Back in my high school days I fell victim to The Arcade Fire hysteria that was sweeping the underground. For those of you who don’t remember this you came to late or too early to really appreciate what was so great and new about them. I feel that the EP I hold in my hands by Dead Heart Bloom entitled Fall In is just as good if not better then the first time I heard Neighborhood. Continue reading “Dead Heart Bloom – Fall In (CD)”

Dancer vs. Politician – A City Half-Lost

I’ve come to terms with the fact that 19 member bands aren’t all into wearing drug-rugs dropping acid and talking about how great The Dead were.

Awesome name, cool cover art and decent run of the mill song titles. So alright you’ve caught my eye slightly Lords & Barons what are you going to offer me musically? Well, Avast Ye, the first track on this S/T, is boring, really boring and if I had less conviction I’d of just tossed this and went to bed but it’s your lucky day because I sat through it and got to track two titled Come Around.

Absolut – Los Angeles (80 Proof)

I’m a serious fan of Absolut Vodka especially their flavored types. But when I picked up a bottle of their 2008 special edition flavor entitled Los Angeles I was blown away. Absolut has taken their master craftsmanship of vodka and flavoring and thrown together one of the tastiest things I’ve ever had in my life. Featuring acai, acerola, pomegranate and blueberry flavors Los Angeles is out of this world. Continue reading “Absolut – Los Angeles (80 Proof)”
