Slingshot Dakota is featured on a very cool 7" split that comes out tomorrow via Soft Speak Records, for which they recorded a cover of Rainer Maria's "Rise." We are premiering the cover song in the replies, which is a very chill indie take on the tune that then turns into a slightly-less-chill-but-still-pretty-chill take on the tune when it kicks up a notch near the end. Slingshot Dakota's partner in crime on this split, which benefits Hopeline, an organization focused on suicide prevention and awareness, is Pet Symmetry, one of Emo Mayer Evan Weiss' many bands, whose contribution you can stream here. Buy the split here.

Rozwell Kid's new record, Too Shabby, is out today via Broken World Media, and we're celebrating the West Virginia-based slacker-rock act's album release by bringing you a brand-spanking-new music video for "Sick Jackets," which you can watch in the replies! The easy RIYL here is Weezer, but in general this band just kinda turns up the fuzz and lets the head-bobbing come easy. Take a listen and pick up the record via one of the links above if you dig.

If there's one thing we're all familiar with, it's the sentiment that intimate and personal lyricism is a huge part of the music we love to listen to on this website. Chicago-based indie-punk act The Downtown Struts may be an unfamiliar name for most, but their new EP Hope You're Dope, out November 18 via Pirates Press Records, is worth keeping an eye on because of the starkly blunt nature of its content. Frontman Dan Cooper chronicles his battles with bipolar disorder throughout the EP's four tracks, and it makes for a riveting listen because it's rare to see artists open up about such sensitive topics in such big ways. Stream the song "Abused" in the replies, and if you like what you...

Christian Wagner on 10/21/14 - 07:43 AM
In reviewing Forever Came Calling's debut LP Contender in 2012, I wrote that the California-based pop-punk act wrote the best straightforward album in the genre that year. With so many pop-punk acts making sure to not bend the rules of the genre, you have to be particularly good to stand out if you go that route, and Forever Came Calling did it well. That description is still applicable in regards to the band's new album, What Matters Most (which you can stream in the replies), but the group has learned on LP2 that they don't have to shy away from their greatest strength: Delivering catchy-as-hell pop hooks. These aren't really hooks for the sake of hooks, either; What Matters Most ebbs...

Xerxes' very loud new album Collision Blonde can be streamed in the replies, and we recommend you do go ahead and stream that bad boy, but make sure your speakers aren't too loud at first, because ear damage at a young age can be really bad!!

Out October 7 via Animal Style Records is Wolves At Bayís latest EP, When Iím Dead, and you can stream the release in its entirety in the replies. The band lists Thursday as an influence, and I think thatís a fair comparison ó they also take cues from the gruff vocal stylings of acts like Hot Water Music and Polar Bear Club, and generally walk the familiar ground of fiery, loud, intense music written by angry, angsty young people. Itís a cool EP, and you can preorder it digitally here and on cassette here.
