Album Review: Little Big League - Tropical Jinx

Little Big League was just signed to Run For Cover records, and is still a relatively unknown band. That makes listening to them cool, right? Nevertheless, one word to describe their music is “sick.” Sick in the fact that there’s so much diversity in a single album that it makes for a dynamic adaptation to the “indie-emo revival” genre (and not in the idea that this album makes me sick and nauseous). When compared to previous releases, Tropical Jinx does not seem to stand out as much, however. The sound seems to have stayed consistent...

Album Review: ROMP - Sorry, Not Sorry

A romp is a fun and energetic event, full of the youthful carefree moments that were so frequent before things like school and emotions got the best of you. We’ve all been to romps, had romps, created romps, but as we grow older we’ve either lost interest in the types of release that adolescent hijinks offered, or we simply don’t have time for them anymore. New Brunswick’s own Indie quartet ROMP, lead by vocalist/keyboardist Madison Klarer and fleshed out by Lucas Dalakian, Mitch Gollub, and Luke Bamford represent an interesting twist...

Album Review: Crying - Get Olde

How do you make a 15 minute EP about 20-something pains set in a world of bodegas and Dorito crumbs stand out? An initial answer when listening to New York native band, Crying, is to set some expertly arranged high-energy chip-tune leads at the forefront. But then again, can a few 8-bit notes really hold people’s attention for longer than those 15 minutes where you’re either browsing the internet like a zombie or driving to a job that you hate? “Get Olde” succeeds by blasting through your speakers with immediately catchy hooks...

Album Review: Radiator Hospital - Torch Song

Radiator Hospital has released a plethora of albums that have all been fantastic, and Torch Song is no exception to this streak. Every song is a solid piece of instrumentation. Sam and his lineup of ever changing recording artists collectively put together a melodic and beautiful sounding album. Each song has an 80’s to 90’s pop reminiscent vibe, all while still keeping with a low-key, “underground” punk rock motif. Previous Radiator Hospital albums have had the same, similar structure to Torch Song. Every song Radiator Hospital has released...

Album Review: LVL UP - Hoodwink'd

I’m going to tell a story I’ve told before: the summer between my freshman and sophomore years of college, I saw Real Estate play a free benefit show in their hometown of Ridgewood, NJ. I grew up twenty minutes away in a small town in the same county, so I felt a strong connection with the band and this show in particular. Opening for Real Estate were two lesser known Ridgewood-based bands: Toasted Plastic and Spook Houses. LVL UP, the Internet’s new power pop buzzboys, are also from Ridgewood...
