Album Review: The Story So Far Live Album

So I love The Story So Far, and about two months ago they released a live album, and I didn't even notice for like three weeks. Thanks for that one Spotify. But yeah, so I really cannot find the strength to type out the entire title of the album, but it's essentially a live album recorded in 2019 at The Wireless in Melbourne! 

The album consists of; 

1. Empty Space
2. Out Of It
3. Keep This Up
4. Roam 
5. Quicksand
6. If I Fall
7. Things I Can't Change
8. Proper Dose
9. Solo
10. All Wrong
11. Upside Down
12. Take Me As You Please
13. Heavy Gloom
14. Nerve

It's a live album, so I can't say that much, as it's not new tracks, they're just live versions (obviously). However, hearing all these songs as live versions just reminds me how much I want to see TSSF live, and it's actually making me fall in love with TSSF all over again, so I guess I'm going back into my TSSF phase. I do this every like 2 months, but honestly. The Story So Far make some incredible music, and I love and appreciate them so much! I missed gigs a lot prior to this, but bands releasing live versions of tracks got me missing gigs even more. But I guess, that makes the live album perfect time! It gives you a bit of a kick of live music even if you can't see the bands live. 

It's great, it's a live album so I can't say more than that really, but it really does make me miss gigs, and it makes me want to see TSSF live, but yeah, I love it, and I can't fault it so 5 out of 5 lemons!

Wishful Thinking by Near Mrs

Welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm going to be talking about Near Mrs' latest track Wishful Thinking which only dropped today (11th February). Although this song has only just dropped, I was kindly sent the track a few weeks back by the lads in Near Mrs and as always, I'm bringing you my thoughts on it!  Now, I can tell you this track is incredible, I thought that the first time I heard it, and I still think that now. This track absolute slaps, and that chorus is extraordinary! The vocals, the lyrics, the guitar, the drums, the bass, everything about this track is a massive yes! I'm a firm believer that Near Mrs are one of the best local bands, and this track is proof of that, as if the past 4 singles haven't been enough proof. Honestly, such an incredible band and this song is just something else!  The riffs, the intro, the outro, the change within the sound, those bits that make your brain go "oh shit, they really did that". When I say you all

Drown by Cherry Bleach

  Welcome back to the blog, and as you may be able to tell, I am welcoming another new band to the blog! Today's band is Cherry Bleach! Fun fact, just before they reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work with them, I was actually contemplating dropping them a message to see if they wanted to work with me. Anyway, they reached out and asked if I wanted to work with them and do a post on their new single Drown, and of course, this is me so I said yes!  Now, Cherry Bleach are a 4 piece psychedelic grunge band from Aberdeen, Scotland. They consist of;  Alisha Wilkie -Vocals and Rhythm Guitar Ewan Watson - Bass Thomas Reid - Lead Guitar George Hudson - Drums So, on Friday 29th of January, Cherry Bleach released their latest track, Drown! Now, not to generalise but songs with drown in the title tend to be pretty solid.  So, this track is a lot softer than I expected, I was expecting this to be a lot more aggressive and in your face, but it's actually a lot softer, and quite po

Desensitized by The Ones You Forgot

  Welcome back to the bog once again, where again, I'm talking about a new release by a new band. This is a band I've only mentioned once before on the blog, but The Ones You Forgot were lovely enough to allow me to do this post, so I thought that now was the perfect time to properly talk about them.  The Ones You Forgot released their latest track Desensitized on Friday the 5th and just like their previous releases this song is a belter! Now, this song is incredible, from the intro you expect this to be a slow track, but in reality, it's a pretty fast-paced, incredible track.  The vocals on this track are so beautiful, they're enough to win anybody over, and the lyrics that accompany the vocals, just yes! Incredible! This song is a massive win just off those two elements alone. The drums, guitar and bass on this track are also incredible, and I'm just in love with this track.  This is a track that I knew I'd like but didn't expect to be this in love with. H
