    5. Album Reviews : Dear You – I Can Only Blame Myself

      Posted on in Album Reviews

      Dear You just released my favorite pop-punk EP of the year so far. I Can Only Blame Myself is as sonically gorgeous as it is moody. With build ups as epic as The Hotelier and vocals bringing out my own broken voice, these six songs are miles above anything the band has released before. Nasal yet vicious, fine yet anxious, and furious yet soothing, this EP spans various tones and moods with talented songwriting and dynamics that many scene veterans do not do as rambunctiously.

    8. Local Spotlight : The Wild – A Finite Number Of Years

      Posted on in Local Spotlight

      As crystal clear as the water in the artwork, The Wild’s debut EP A Finite Number Of Years opens with ‘Just A Memory,’ featuring bright acoustics and luscious melodies. The tone is really fitting for the vocal style, which is rare considering the falsetto taking dominance on the track. But it is not the impressive high pitched frequencies and relatively light music that holds this song together. No, Jake Weholt beckons, “The world’s still here and we’re alive so lets all calm down,” and then a pulse is felt. The background synths limp the song forward until the drum beat captures the entire feel. It is this slight delicacy that made the song ridiculously catchy, allowing for more impact when the rest of the instruments cut out to the guitar again.
