Song of the Day: The Pits - Get in the Car

The Ohio band Pits are a band whose roots started in Panama. They are a hard band to list genre-wise, but I would say emo-pop punk-alternative esque. Appears they only released 1 full length & an 8 song EP on Angryson Records. This was the same label who released music from Neshamah & Aftertaste. The short lived Mono vs Stereo label picked up this SOTD for their The Revolution Will Begin in the Blink of an Eye 2nd comp. Check this catchy song out & try not to sing along the 2nd time!… Continued →

Heart Like War Drop Brand New Surprise EP

We have just begun 2024 and a much loved Los Angeles based pop-punk band named Heart Like War has just come out of the gates swinging with their brand new, shall I say “Surprise” EP. The EP is titled “Time To Go” which is everything tasty you’d come to expect from a high quality Pop-Punk act with years of experience and led by a frontman who is also a world renown YouTube celebrity, “TodayIGrewUp” (with a very cool channel I might add). So drop the January doldrums and seasonal blues and jam some of that new Heart Like War pop-punk action.… Continued →

Best of 2023: Rob Jensen

1. Lacey Sturm – Kenotic Metanoia: This November Lacey Sturm released her first album in nearly 8 years. To say it was worth the wait is an understatement. If it’s going to take 8 years to release a new album, this is the caliber release you want to shoot for. Lacey sounds as good as ever and has dropped an exceptional album here. It easily outshines her previous release, Life Screams, and is, in my opinion, her best work to date, including her material with Flyleaf.… Continued →

Too Bad Eugene Finish Recording New Album and New Single Out December 14th!

Too Bad Eugene have just finished recording their brand new album. The band will debut their new single on December 14th and you do not want to miss out on this song. I feel that it’s their strongest work by far and ranks up there with the best of the best in melodic punk rock. You like good music well then you’re going to sink those teeth in deep to this new song, and the album too I’m sure. I’m almost 99.9% positive that I’ll dig this new album so much that it’ll rank up there high on my year end list of 2024.… Continued →

Check Out: Calling Hours

I know this band doesn’t exactly fit under the banner of Indie Vision Music (Christian bands and the like) but I really enjoy them and this new (Debut) album by Calling Hours is an absolute joy to listen to. The album “Say Less” just released in November on the mighty Revelation Records and it’s already making waves in the punk and hardcore communities. This album rides the waves of any great melodic punk/rock band but takes it up another whole level and far exceeds expectations. I went into this record knowing about “Popeye from Farside” which if you didn’t know, was a highly influential and somewhat short-lived punk/hardcore band from So.… Continued →

Too Bad Eugene Launch Kickstarter For New Album

The band Too Bad Eugene have just launched a new kickstarter campaign to help fund the finished recording and mix on the new album. I’ve already heard an early mix of a new song titled “Shaking My Fist At Clouds” and I must say, this is the absolute best the band has ever sounded. It’s an extremely catchy track with tons of melodic, fast punk rock, along with great sounding BGVs like the band has become well known for. Plus a great “Get off my lawn” yet entirely positive, lyrical content.… Continued →

Introducing: The Caballerials

I was alerted to this band The Caballerials by a friend and must say that their brand of pop-punk is anything but boring. Fun emotionally charged pop-punk with a heavy 2000’s vibe that’ll please fans of Home Grown, FenixTX, Blink-182, Man Alive, Ace Troubleshooter, and even Olivia The Band. Like the Olivia The Band these guys also reside from the state of Hawaii and create some pretty meaningful yet entirely fun new music. Check out their latest EP “Waxed Curbs and Suburbs” below via Spotify or pull it up on your favorite digital network.… Continued →

Red Weather Return With "Take It Back"

Red Weather are back with yet another awesome track. This hot one is titled “Take It Back” and it is simply incredible for an independent band. Bringing up all that tasty 00’s pop-punk/emo nostalgia to the surface and putting their own uniquely individual spin on it. If you’re looking for something new that completely slams (or is it ‘slaps’?) then this band is for you. Listen to the song below. If you want to support the band further then check out their merch here.… Continued →
