Inside the Mind of Drew Beringer
Wow.
08/08/09 at 11:05 AM by Drew Beringer
I think I just might have listened to the craziest, backwards song of 2009.

And I loved it.

A few thoughts

- The new Boys Like Girls album isn't bad. I mean, as long as you are expecting some quality pop rock. The lyrics are still mediocre to bad, but it's about at the same level as the new All Time Low album in terms of enjoyment, plus I hear some Bon Jovi attitude on it. Stand Out tracks: Love Drunk, Two Is Better Than One, The Shot Heard Round The World, Go. I might review this, or maybe Joe will, no idea yet.

- The new Shakira song, She Wolf, is totally my jam. Sweet dance beat and great vocals haha, can't get the chorus out of my head, and her little howl in the chorus is adorable.

- Reviews for Showbread, Oh Sleeper, and Breathe Carolina soon.

- New Junk Aesthetic by ETID continues to dominate my ears.

- I love my girlfriend so much.

Today's Spotlight: AP.net Reviewers
08/05/09 at 06:41 PM by Drew Beringer
I want to try to do this every week or so where I spot light some of the awesome reviews from my fellow staff members.

Jeremy finds the new Modest Mouse EP to be a suitable holdover till their new full length. He also states the new Portugal. The Man record continues to showcase the band's evolution.

Steve really captures the essence of Anchor & Braille's debut in his review. Steve also claims that Therefore I Am has a very bright future ahead of them.

Gregory was a little let down by the new Nightmare Of You album, what do you think?

Chris gave high praise to two of his favorite albums of 2009: Rx Bandits continue to progress and Broadway Calls just might have delivered your favorite pop-punk record of the year.

Although it may make you sad, Blake still highly recommends the new Deer Tick album. He also tries to make sense of the electronca-tinged Discovery LP.

Travis absolutely loves the off-kilter loudness of Kiss Kiss' new album, while Eric expresses how you should give the new Sonic Youth a chance.


All in all, these are fabulous reviews, and you should check out all of them. Leave them a comment too, we reviewers love comments!

AOTY Sleeper Pick: Mew
08/01/09 at 05:51 PM by Drew Beringer
No More Stories... by Mew has been dominating my iTunes lately, the more I listen to it, the more I really like it. The album is quickly climbing up my list. 2009 has been a great year for music, it's going to be an absolute headache trying to sort my End of the Year list in November, I will probably revise that list over 100 times. Anyways, the new Mew is out on Aug 25th, so get it, it rules.

I am currently listening to Hellogoodbye's debut Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!, and I'm trying to figure out why I gave it so much crap back in 2006. I gave it an average review, so I guess I was fair, but for some reason I'm really digging the album. Maybe because "pop" bands these days are crap like Borkencynde, Millionaires, NeverShoutNever, Breathe Carolina, etc. I am really excited for a new HGB album in the future.

Speaking of Breathe Carolina, I bravely listened to their new album, Hello Fascination, last night, and my goodness it's awful. I will be reviewing it in the next few weeks, but geeez. And some people (from what I read on twitter) think it's strange that I think this album is awful, I still can't believe there are people out there who think this band is good.



Also, another shameless plug to buy some of my CDs and DVDs haha: http://shops.half.ebay.com/drewsmedia_W0QQ

Buy my stuff!

So I am selling some of my CDs and DVDs, about 130 CDs and 7 DVDs to be exact, on half.com. All of my CDs are marked as "brand new" or "like new," and the prices range between $1 to $10, so you won't get ripped off. So if you are in the CD shopping mood, check out my link: http://shops.half.ebay.com/drewsmedia_W0QQ

thanks

Brand New
07/30/09 at 10:58 PM by Drew Beringer
No I haven't heard Daisy, but it may be a very polarizing record that people hate. Even more so than The Devil and God.... Finally, I am semi-excited for this record, hell, I'll even put on TDAG and listen to it now, first time in months.

The polarizing comment is just based off a hunch, after seeing the pre-order and how they've been handling things.

Most anticipated for the rest of 2009
07/30/09 at 12:12 AM by Drew Beringer
I've been lucky, I've gotten to hear the majority of my most anticipated albums of 2009 so far, there are really only about 8 albums I'm dying to hear for the rest of 2009, they are:

Tegan and Sara - Sainthood (10/27)
Say Anything - Say Anything (TBA)
Clipse - Till The Casket Drops (10/20)
Jay-Z - The Blueprint 3 (9/11)
Imogen Heap - Ellipse (8/25)
Relient K - Forget and Not Slow Down (10/6)
John Mayer - Battle Studies (TBA)
The Ataris - TBA (TBA)

Am I forgetting anything (please don't mention Brand New)?
