Pop-punk for the younger generation already existed - this is nothing new or groundbreaking, but has unfortunately found fame. I guess they can enjoy it while it lasts.

Paleface can go on the 'Jesus Christ, even *I* think that sounds like a horrible racket' list... though I might appreciate it more not at 8:30 on a Saturday morning :p
I'll remember to check out the other one though :)

Yeah it's definitely not for everyone . It's in my "heaviest music that I can enjoy" list.

I agree about MGK, but I think it would be a little hypocritical of me to complain about that as most of the newer less heavy bands I listen to are regurgitating pop punk and nu metal from the early 00s.

It's not exactly terribly new and the British members might roll their eyes, but I haven't been able to shake this song since it was released last summer. I still can't get enough of it, especially the live versions. I am a sucker for coming-of-age tales though. I wish Sam Fender would announce a North America tour.

Not a recommendation per se, just expressing my love \m/,

My musical tastes have definitely been inspired by video games. The most obvious example was the epic Hell March from Red Alert, which is so badass and popular it actually made its way onto an episode Top Gear.

Somehow through my random browsings I’ve stumbled upon a bunch of old Sonic music that I had previously forgotten. As soon as I heard this track, I was like “OOoOoOooOoOo ****!” - I’d totally forgotten about it and somehow I’d never credited it as being an inspiration towards guitar based music…. But I have no doubt that it’s been a huge influence on me (considering this came out in 1998 before I bought my first guitar). For the cynical, I’ll give a warning for ‘heart on sleeve’ courage / inspirational lyrics, but I don’t care I absolutely love it. Man, the guitar riffing is soooo ****ing bad ass, reminds me of the band Extreme.


I also found the instrumental version, fully showing off the guitar which is tempting me to dust off my kit - again… I ****ing LOVE that riffing!!! 😍😍😍

Finally one of my all time favourite albums has been re-issued on vinyl. I've stopped collecting, but I just had to pick it up. I think People=S*** might be my favourite song period.

New album by Gospel is ez aoty, 17 years wait since debut and they smashed it. Who knew mixing post hardcore, prog and psychedelic rock could work so well 😍

Apparently, some psychopath at Portugal. The Man thought it was a good idea to cover "Steal My Sunshine" by Len and I absolutely love them for it. It's different enough to be unique, but not so far off that it's an abomination. I'm addicted.

Couple of artists I've really gotten into this summer... Who also happen to be polar opposites of each other 🤣

Fontaines DC



And Holly Humberstone

That song is incredible, he is incredible, he absolutely smashed it live. I don't care how 'mainstream' he is... listen to the lyrics, that song is f***ing deep!

I will go an see him again first opportunity.

Watch until the end, had the crowd eating out of his hands, not the easiest crowd to please either, a lot of old schoolers who 'go to see proper bands, not pop acts'

I am incredibly jealous! He's still fairly unknown in the US. I'm hoping for a proper North American tour before long. He's been playing a few festivals and small gigs over here lately and is supporting Florence + The Machine at a handful of stops, but nothing even remotely near me.

But yeah, his lyrics feel so raw and real, especially in "Seventeen Going Under."

Been abit obsessed with this track, if you like abit of a 90s throw back pop tune


Also this new one from Tove Lo, I felt the popcorn remix should make it annoying but I'm addicted to it.
