hopeless records

Alright, now we are really getting into the swing of things.  We have all new releases this week including two from bands we know (one of which was pretty highly anticipated by us) and two from bands we had never heard of before a week and a half ago.  What we found interesting, though – and you might too – is who put out the better albums.  Maybe part of it had to do with expectations, as in high expectations versus no or low expectations.  Or maybe half the bands just did better. Feel free to weigh in on this in the comments.

Reviews:
Enter Shikari – The Mindsweep (Hopeless)
The Oxford Coma – Morphine (self-released)
Raunchy – Vices. Virtues. Visions. (Massacre)
Thorr-Axe – Gates of Winter (self-released)

After coming off of last week’s show focusing on production, we’re happy to report that all the albums this week are produced very well.  On top of that, they are all full of good music!  We have four new albums whose bands are new to us, and two of those are also brand new bands! We also have a live review of the last top of “This Tour is Personal.”  So, it’s a very full episode, baked twice for extra deliciousness (just listen…we explain).
