Check it out, or else why did you bother meandering to...

Drew Beringer on 08/14/14 - 09:15 AM
Light Years is stuck in a hype-y pop-punk genre that, to be perfectly honest, it doesn't quite fit in. Its members are older than most of their peers, and they don't play the type of Tumblr-friendly songs that lead bands to high Billboard chart positions. That's okay though -- because what Light Years does best is deliver honest, straightforward punk rock tracks presented with excellent guitar work, catchy melodies and thoughtful craftsmanship. You can stream the title track from their forthcoming Animal Style Records EP, Temporary, in the replies -- and when you're done enjoying it, you can preorder the 12" here.
Thomas Nassiff on 08/13/14 - 10:38 AM

Living in Gainesville for four years taught me lots of things, and one of them was that there existed in Central and Northern Florida a hotbed of talented punk and emo bands. I watched groups like Gainesville's Dikembe and Orlando's You Blew It! play house shows before they signed to Tiny Engines and Topshelf Records, respectively, and I discovered Orlando's Henrietta when they put out a split with Tallahassee's Echo Base (who they will hit the road with this summer - dates in the replies) and South Florida's Gillian Carter. Henrietta, which will release its debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding, on August 28 via Animal Style, had a few older EPs which I then checked out at the time - and...
