“Night Work” by Scissor Sisters

Dirty lyrics set to dirtier grooves.  Not meant for consumption by squares.

“Fever” by Bullet for My Valentine

Released today, BFMV’s third studio album is definitely worth a listen — especially if you like screamo that’s set against a decent melody.  This album is chock full of signature sound, including plenty of double bass and thick harmonies.  I’ve only listened to it twice through so far, but I’m definitely not disappointed with this [...]

“Good Apollo I’m Burning Star IV, Vol. 1: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness” by Coheed and Cambria

On first listen, this album might sound cheesy to some, but you can hear a level of confidence that refuses to be ignored.  You can almost hear the band members saying, “Yeah, what we’re doing is different… weird even.  Deal with it.”

Album: “The Dream” by In This Moment

I’m well overdue in posting one of these.  Check this band out if you like good chick rock.  Think Veruca Salt meets Hawthorne Heights.

Album: “Minus All” by Imperative Reaction

Best.  Industrial.  Album.  Ever.  Okay, so maybe I’m exaggerating.  Best I’ve heard this week, anyway.

Album: “Who We Are” by Lifehouse

These guys have really been dragging ass on their fifth album.  The first single, “Halfway Gone,” released in late October.  Hopefully this means that we’re getting close.

Album: “Ocean Eyes” by Owl City

I can’t help myself.  Creatively mixed metaphors and double entendres set to ridiculously bright, casio-style accompaniment always makes me smile.  Isn’t that the point?

Album: “Legend of the Black Shawarma” by Infected Mushroom

Proven (yet again): the middle east is the place to go for decent electronic music.  Israeli duo “Infected Mushroom” easily demonstrates that techno music doesn’t have to be comprised of cheesy or boring repetitive loops.  It can be deep, intricate, interesting and even challenging.  I’ve been a huge fan for nearly a decade, ever since [...]

Album: “Still Searching” by Senses Fail

No matter how bad your life seems, these guys can make you feel better.  With lyrics about self loathing, alcohol abuse, suicide, my-daddy-never-loved-me issues, and my-ex-girlfriend-cut-out-my-heart-fried-it-up-in-a-pan-ate-it-puked-it-onto-the-floor-and-jumped-up-and-down-on-top-of-it goodness.

Album: “The Burning” by Ice Nice Kills

These guys are something of a guilty pleasure for me — definitely not for everyone.  Something about their raw garage-type energy, combined with an unexpected production value, makes my foot go tap, tap, tap.
