In response to AltPress.com's column today about why 5 Seconds Of Summer are important to pop-punk, I've written an opinion piece about why that's just not true...but how there are a few bands that could help the genre move back into the mainstream spotlight. Check it out in the replies.
In the mainstream media, “pop-punk” is used as a simple and quick catch-all to describe any band that might ever sound for a minute or two like it might one day play the Vans Warped Tour. It’s an easy way to get a point across for people who, genuinely, probably do not know or care about the nuances behind what makes a pop-punk band different from a punk band different from a pop-rock band different...

Today we are streaming the recently released record from Michigan hardcore band Tall Tales. Nightlife is a throwback to 90's and early 2000's hardcore acts that will be sure to please older fans of the genre yet still be able to connect with the younger generation. Listen to the record in the replies. It is now available on Hotfoot Records.

New England is becoming a hotbed for up and coming pop-punk/emo/indie acts. When I had Grandview's record sent to me by a friend, I knew this had to be heard on the site. One dash Transit, Into It Over It, and Pentimento, Everything Between Paint And A Wall will surely attract many new fans once it's heard. Listen to the record in the replies and grab it on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
