The Hotelier - Dendron
This song, like the entire album, is incredible. The song in particular though features my favorite lyrics in a track in about three years. The closing verse is just, everything. - Zack Zarrillo
Prawn - Why You Always Leave A Note***
In England the word prawn is synonomous with what in good ole ‘Merica we refer to as shrimp, but more importantly Prawn refers to one of the best up and coming emo bands and their recent split with Joie de Vivre showcases exactly how on point the New Jersey natives are. If you’re looking for nearly five minutes of straight up catharsis then this little diddy is just what the doctor ordered. Also, I can’t mention enough how great that Arrested Development allusion is! - Zac Lomas (@Infidelegate)
Fireworks - Glowing Crosses***
Fireworks’ Gospel is one of my top albums, and whenever a band follows up one of those personal favorites of mine, it always makes me hesitant. Will it be a step backward? Is it gonna suck? Will I feel like a terrible fan if I end up hating it? However, “Glowing Crosses” was love at first listen and left me with none of the aforementioned feelings. It has a true Fireworks sound, yet somehow matured; it’s energetic pop punk with a kickin’ bass line, what more could you want? Can’t wait to hopefully see them on the road this spring with The Wonder Years and hear the rest of the new album! - Ashley Aron (@ashleyoverdrive)
Bayside - Stuttering
I put on Cult so I could pick a track and write out my rec but I ended up listening straight through without getting a single word down. It’s the kind of album that flows straight through - hit after hit after hit. To only recommend one song feels like I’m doing music fans everywhere a huge disservice, but I suppose my favorite of late is “Stuttering.” Seriously though, if you only listen to the one song you’re doing it completely wrong. - Becky Kovach (@beckystrz)
Information Society - Land Of The Blind***
Information Society’s first new track in two decades to feature both founding members Paul Robb and Kurt Harland is a hard-charging blast of punky dance-pop that drops right into the sweet spot between Peace & Love, Inc. and Synthesizer (which, just coincidentally, happen to be my two favorite InSoc albums). To say I’m stoked on the upcoming _Hello World would be the understatement of the year — those wibbly synths and Harland’s unmistakable vocals should prove the perfect salve to an oncoming bout of March Sadness. Now, where did I leave my mirrorshades? - Jesse Richman (@jrichmanesq)
