Featured Stream: Washington Square Park

Posted by: Deborah Remus (06/30/10)
It came out last week, but if you still haven’t listened we have Washington Square Park’s self-titled streaming on their AP.net profile. This unsigned New Jersey band has already built up quite the following and their debut is a catchy record that is drawing comparisons to The Movielife. If you like it, you can pick it up here. And if you need more convincing, check out Thomas Nassiff’s recent review.

This record was okay, not the best pop-punk release this year, but a pretty good record.

Okay so these dudes rule and so does their music...but I hate the comparison's this band is getting.. for instance, they were in Alternative Press and it compared them to "Title Fight, the Movielife, and Fireworks". Come the fuck on. Have you heard the WSP record? Granted, Max's raspiness reminds me of Vinnie Caruana, but I wouldnt say a la Movielife, maybe IATA.

Regardless, this band is fucking real.

Agreed fully. The WSP record reminds me of I Am The Avalanche meets Hot Rod Circuit. Definitely nowhere near actually sounding like the Movielife if you discount the vocals.

Full and Through is an awesome pop song. No doubt about it.

These guys need some more gestating. Still pretty fresh and young. Not totally sold on the release yet.

Comparing them to the Movielife is unwarranted. There's no hardcore influence in this. If you like Man Overboard, then this is going to be your bread and butter.
