Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure by The Whether Channel


 
Welcome back to another blog post, where I'm talking about a band that's new to the blog! Today I'm talking about The Whether Channel's debut EP 'Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure' and I'm pretty stoked about it! The Whether Channel reached out to me on TikTok after they'd seen the series I do on there about small bands, and they asked me to check out their EP, and then I, of course, offered to work with them on a post, so I did! 

Skully and Ted's Excellent Adventure is a 6 track EP, so let's get into it! 

The first track is 'Re:Start' and I don't know why I didn't expect it to sound like it does, but the intro sounds like it's going to have a more electric feeling to it, but when it kicks in it just blew my mind! I can't process how great this track actually is, and that chorus goes SO hard! Like this track is next level, and I love the lyrics to this track too1 I think it's insane, and the vocals are something else! I was expecting this track to be something I liked but didn't love, and now I'm sat here thinking "Oh shit, this is good". It's insane! Honestly, after hearing this track I have high hopes for the rest of the EP! 

Moving onto the section track 'A Midwestern Commerical About...' and just from the intro this track had my attention! This has a softer intro style compared to the previous track, but I'm still here for it! That actual main part of the track is incredible and although this one doesn't hit me like the previous track, it's still good and it still goes hard! Such an incredible track and it packs a punch. Would highly recommend it, and there are so many parts in this song that have me feeling all nice inside because it's just audible pleasure really. 

The third track is titled 'Save Me' and it has a softer intro, the intro didn't win me over. However, you can hear the build-up within the track, and it was when it properly kicked in that it had won me over. The lyrics to this and the power within the vocals are incredible! I really do rate this track and I'd recommend going and checking it out because this really is a great song. The verses don't engage me like the chorus does, but I'm completely okay with that, as I still like the track and I'd willingly listen to this track just for the chorus! 

Next, we have 'Must Be Nice' which did actually catch my attention just from the intro, and then it just got better and better the further we got into the track. I'm really impressed with this track and I think it's incredible, it doesn't lose my attention at any point during the track, and it packs a decent enough punch. It's not my favourite track on the EP, but I still love it! I still think this is a great track! 

Second to last and we now have, 'Shopping Cart Races' which seemed a bit different compared to the other tracks, it's still good, but it had a bit of a different sound and vibe to it, which I really like, as I love being able to tell tracks apart. The vocals are quieter on this track, but the lyrics go hard enough on this track, and it still packs the same sort of punch we've seen on the previous tracks. 

The last track is 'Can't Help Feel Like A Stranger (Acoustic)' and this is not my favourite track on the EP, but I've said this in previous posts, about how my brain struggles to understand and process acoustic tracks on EP's that aren't all acoustic. I still really like the track though, and I think it's a decent track. I quite like it, but it's just the contrast between this track and the previous track. Obviously, this is an acoustic of an already release track, but yeah, I have very mixed feelings about this track. I like it though, I do like it. I think it's quite a nice track. 

Overall, I quite like this EP, and I wasn't expecting to actually enjoy this EP like I did! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is, but I'm really happy about that. I think it's a great EP that still packs a punch! Would highly recommend it! When it comes to rating, I'd give it 4 out of 5 lemons. I really did enjoy this EP though, and it is definitely something I'm going to listen to a decent amount!

ffs by Misplaced

Misplaced have returned with another track! This one titled 'ffs'. Of course, I'm a massive fan of Misplaced, so I was super hyped for it to drop!  So, of course, I knew what I was to expect from a Misplaced release. They really didn't disappoint with this release.  ffs is an incredible track, that had my attention from the first few second. It engages you like their previous releases it's just as good as the likes of 'fuck that, i'm alright' and 'idk why i try'. It's an insane track that packs that punch that you'd expect from Misplaced.  This track is phenomenal! It's mind-blowing. It's that good that I don't understand how they haven't blown up yet, this track is everything! It's incredible! It's everything you could want and more from a Misplaced track! The chorus on this track is incredible. The bridge, the verses, the drums, the guitar, the vocals! Everything on this track is next level, and the lyrics even g
