The Best of 2016: Rob Jensen

In 2016, I saw my tastes in music grow a bit more. This would account for why you’ll see some albums make an appearance on this list that, if you know me, you wouldn’t normally expect to see here. Overall, I thought it was a pretty good year for music, but a number of times some of the albums I was most excited about lost something after numerous listen throughs. Continued →

Wisconsin based pop-punk band At The Wayside will return in 2017 with a new album titled “The Breakdown and the Fall”. This will be their first new full length since their “Self Titled” release in 2012 (Red Cord Records). 5 years is a long time especially in the pop-punk music realm but the band will smash all expectations with this passionate and in your face melodic set of songs.

Blank Pages Return

An independent pop-punk band that I had connected with 5 years ago is BACK! The band Blank Pages last released their “Self Titled” EP in 2011 which spawned a few “singles”. The band played for a few years following the release of their Ep then went on hiatus for 3 years. Now they are back and have a new single which you can view below. Look for a new release soon. You can also check out two of their older music videos below. [Website]

Heart Like War - Bring it On

Los Angeles based pop-punk band Heart Like War released this fun little music video for their new song “Bring it On” a few months back and I wanted to spotlight it for those of you that didn’t know who these guys are. The band released their 2nd full length album titled “Fired Up” on Thumper Punk Records back in June of this year. Fans of Mxpx, Sum 41, Blink 182, and old Hawk Nelson will find something to appreciate in this new album.

Hangnail Return From Their Slumber With Hard Hitting "Live" Album

The punk rock band Hangnail have indeed returned with a vengeance and are set to make all of you long time fans and fence sitters, instant fans of the band again. How might they accomplish this goal? Well with just one spin of their “Live” album it becomes abundantly clear just how much raw talent and power these men wielded through their instruments. Hangnail weren’t just another pop-punk band meant to ride the coattails of Billie Joe and Green Day with faux English accents, spiky hair, and pretend attitudes. Hangnail were far from that whole scene and their talent can’t be over looked. If you haven’t given this new Live album a spin, you are doing yourself a huge disservice. These 18 songs (and 1 intro) are some of the most powerful, melodic, technical, and spiritual punk rock songs you’ll ever hear outside of a polished Hollywood studio with a giant budget. It’s amazing how crisp and clear these songs truly sound and the bite that this release holds. If anyone wanted the perfect introduction to Hangnail, this should always be it then go back with Transparent, Facing Changes, and Self Titled. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to “release” this fantastic live album and I am thrilled to be able to share it with all of you. We welcome back Hangnail with arms wide open and it is my hope the guys will consider sticking around a little bit longer. If you like what you hear, make sure to pick up a shirt or two in the merch store. Continued →

MxPx - Doing Time

Today’s Video Flashback is of classic MxPx track “Doing Time” off the “Life In General” album (1996/Tooth & Nail Records). It’s amazing to think that Life in General just turned 20 last month. So crazy how fast time flies. Speaking of MxPx, they recently released a “Live” film from their Observatory shows in 2015 and the band has a rare single that was part of their campaign for the live film that you can hear below.
