Think of all the tiny, local bar bands in your area, with their stereotypically bad names and worse covers… And promptly throw away everything you ever associated with small bands. Back Pocket Memory is not one of those groups that, in attempts to make the great leap from garage tostage, will succumb to the downward spiral of conformity. Rather, they have nurtured the easily accessible sound they’ve developed. With their upcoming self-titled EP, set to drop this September, the raw talent packed into their alt-rock quintet is astounding! The 5 songs on the EP truly pack a punch, enough to leave a musical bruise on the cortex- a bruise with a cool story.
It’s the middle of summer and it seems that Reel Big Fish has come out with the perfect album for the season. Candy Coated Fury, RBF’s latest edition to their discography of fun-loving, sarcastic hits, is packed full of all the things that make us love them. From their killer horn licks, snarky break-up songs, and sharply candid lyricism right down to their easily skank-able beats, Reel Big Fish has done it again.
