Not Sorry by Dead Bundy

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re talking about Dead Bundy again! However, this time we’re talking about Dead Bundy’s debut album, Not Sorry.   This album features the singles we’ve come to love including, When I’m High, Wannabe and Duct Taped To A 40. I love all the singles from this album, and for a 14 track album, Not Sorry only has a listening time of a little over half an hour. It reminds me a lot of blink-182. The album features little skit tracks like there was on The Tom, Mark and Travis Show. It features tracks such a Hard Job and there’s not one dull moment when you listen to this track. From start to finish, every track is incredible, and packs the punch you expect from Dead Bundy. 8 of the tracks featuring on the album were previously released as singles, and although normally I would say that doesn’t leave a lot of exclusive to the album content, it’s a 14 track album so it’s a lot but there’s 6 different tracks as well. Some of them are skits but it’s great.

Proper Gentleman by OnlyChrisAng

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! After what feels like forever, I’m finally back with another blog post! Today we’re talking about Chris Ang again! I think Chris is a wonderful human, with some extremely emotional and heartfelt tracks. I’ve spoken about his music previously, and for as long as he wants me to keep producing content I will.   This track is very similar to the previous tracks we've heard from Chris, and it's a decent enough track. It's got a nice feel to it, and it's engaging enough to listen to. It's got a nice feel and vibe to it, and it doesn't have the same intense emotional connotations that some of his previous releases have. I do actually really like this track though, I think it's decent. I'd listen to it enough to put it in rotation, but I don't know if it would be a track on regular rotation though. If I was in the mood for a track of this style, I'd probably reach for it a bit.  It's alright, it's not a bad tra

Introducing: Feel Something

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today I'm back doing an introducing post! It feels like it's been a long time since I last did one of these! Fun fact, about a month ago Jamie messaged me but it went into my spam folder on Messenger so I didn't get the message until a couple of days ago, however, a week or so ago Aaron messaged me on Messenger, and it went into my main inbox. I booked Aaron in back when he messaged me, and when I found Jamie's message I booked him in too, however, yesterday when I was coming to do the prep work for this post, I realised, both Aaron and Jamie are in the same band... this seems like the sort of thing I should have noticed at the time, but either way, thanks to Jamie and Aaron for reaching out! Thank you to you both for trusting me enough to talk about your band! So, let's not ramble anymore and let's talk about Feel Something!  Feel Something are a pop-punk/emo band from Chesire, UK. The band consists of:  Aaron Ross - Vocals J

Live Review: Good Hustles at The Bodega

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re finally doing a post we haven’t done in a long time again! Today I’m doing my first live review in like 18 months!   On Friday 20th of August, Good Hustles headlined The Bodega in Nottingham, with support from Adam Zareba, Clonk and Distant Blue. It’s common knowledge that I have W lot to do with Good Hustles as the drummer is Harvey who is one of my favourite people in the entire world! I have a Good Hustles tattoo and everything now.  This wasn't my first gig back, as I saw Downcast and Royals a few weeks ago, but this is the first gig back that I'm reviewing!  Now, while I am mainly here to talk about Good Hustles I want to just mention the support acts! Adam was the opener, and I've got to admit, I was really impressed by his set. He was quite entertaining and made the crowd laugh, which I thought was great, and I really liked his music as well! He was great! Such a great first impression and a great opener! The second act

Recent Releases: Those Without, Half Dizzy and Hightail

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're doing another recent releases post! I know we did one a couple of posts back, but I thought this would be a pretty good way of just getting ahead with reviews. Today we're going to talk about Those Without, Hightail and Half Dizzy.  First up, I want to talk about a new band to the blog, that being Half Dizzy. A week or so ago Daniel reached out to me and asked me if I'd be game for doing a post, and I said yes. Half Dizzy are a punk band from Long Island, they have one track out titled Surrogate. This is definitely more punk than a lot of the other acts we've spoken about recently. It gives me early blink vibes, and I'm not too sure why, but it's just that sort of pop-punk and all that. It's decent. I actually really like this track. It's not my favourite track I've ever heard, but I do really like it, and I think it's an incredible track. It definitely packs a punch and I can see it appealing to ma

Let Go by Until You Disappear

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! After what feels like forever we’re back talking about Until You Disappear again. Now, you may remember Until You Disappear from last year. I thought very highly of their previous 2 singles and even went as far as to say they were a band of the year. But they’re back again, with a brand new single titled Let Go.   The track features those nice grungy sounding riffs we’ve come to know and love. I love the whole feel and vibe of this track. It’s got such a nice feel to it and it’s pretty catchy. It’s got good vibes to it, and I love the sound of this track! It’s an incredible track and it really packs a punch, no it doesn’t have those dramatic tempo changes but it’s still got such a cool feel to it.  It's still a groovy track that will impress the masses.  When I first got sent this track a few weeks back I fell in love with it. I thought it was an incredible track, and I loved the whole sound and vibe of the track, and the vocals are incredible as

Mid Year Lemon Awards: 2021

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog, and to the lemon awards! Now, I know every year we do this once a year at the end of the year. It's always the last post of the year, but my mum suggested that we do 2 lemon award posts a year, we did 2 last year. Last year we had the big lemon awards and the Quarantine Lemon Awards. I realised that now we work with like 100 artists and we churn out so much content, that it made sense for us to do 2 lemon awards a year. We will be keeping a lot of the same categories as we do in the main Lemon Awards, but it's just a way of giving more bands the chance to have a lemon award. As expected, we will only be talking about releases from 2021 up until now. I'm super excited about this, so without further ado let's get into this!  Also please remember, this years awards only include artists who have released music this year. If they haven't released music this year, they won't be featured. Also, we do 5 awards for releases as there

Recent Releases: Don't Forget Rupert, Protect Your Heart, Beneath Flowers and Ryan Soanes

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re doing another long combination post! Today we’re talking about new music from Don’t Forget Rupert, Ryan Soanes, Beneath Flowers and Protect Your Heart.   Let’s talk about Protect Your Heart’s second single first! This track dropped a few weeks back, and I did review their debut single. Closer To The Grave has an incredible, heavy feel to it. It’s an intense track that packs such a punch. It’s reminiscent of the likes of Every Avenues and bands like that. It’s got that straight to the chorus vibe to it, and it’s incredible. I love everything about this track. I love the change between the chorus and verse with the sound. It’s incredible. I love how this track feels and sounds. It’s just got such an angsty feel to it, and it truly does pack a punch. It’s a surreal track that 100% deserves some more love and support, there’s a breakdown sort of feel to parts of the track, and I just think it’s an incredible track. This is a track that I think

I Think I’m Having A Heart Attack by Good Hustles

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we’re talking about Good Hustles again! It feels like forever since we spoke about the lovely lot that is Good Hustles. I think we all know I love Good Hustles and they never seem to disappoint. All their songs are belters, and they’re a band that really do deserve some more love and support! They’re one of the best bands that Notts has to offer. A little over a week ago Good Hustles dropped their new track I Think I’m Having A Heart Attack. So, let’s stop the rambling and get into talking about this incredible track!  I Think I’m Having A Heart Attack features that classic Good Hustles sound we’ve come to know and love. I love the sound and feel of this track. It starts off as it means to go on, and the whole feel of this track. It doesn’t have the angst that some of the previous singles we’ve heard from Good Hustles have like Coffee, but the vocals on this track are next level! I always tend to point out Morton’s vocals but honestly, them voc

Cut The Cord by Hightail

  Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about the brand new single from Hightail. We've spoken about Hightail before, and we'll talk about them again. Especially considering they're dropping an EP soon. Anyway, let's get straight into this.  I was obsessed with this track from the get-go. This is an absolute belter. Cut The Cord packs a punch, and it's the perfect tempo. It's just such an insane track, and it's very much a traditional heavier pop-punk track. This is like sort of early The Story So Far sounding sort of pop-punk. I love this track though, I think it's insane. I love the whole feel and vibe of this track, and it truly does pack a punch.   I think this is an incredible track, and it really is phenomenal. There's nothing I can really criticise about it. The vocals are insane, the guitar, the drums, the bass, the lyrics, everything about this track gets a massive yes from me. I love it. I think this track is
