Some New Shit!

We have some brandy new jams this week, ranging from sweet melodies to chaotic grind and…well, not “everything in between” but there’s a little bit of variation.  We also debut this year’s gimmicky feature, which should be fun!

This time around, one of these bands is about to release an album 10 years after their last one (a bit more dramatic then the referenced earlier episode).  The same question applies: is it worth it? Well, listen to find out, and make sure you stick around for the new bands!

Ch-ch-ch-changes

We have talked about the evolution of a band’s sound or sudden shifts in style many times before on this here show.  Well guess what?  Those discussions happen again this week, based on varied examples.  You have been warned.

It’s Coming Back Around Again

We have a little back of a throwback going on this week.  After staring in the mid-2000’s and dropping three albums, two of these bands have been absent for 6-7 years.  Another artist here got their start around the same time, but they never left, riding the waves of the changing scene and industry. Then we have The Ongoing Concept.
