KID BRUNSWICK – XFOREVER Album Review

Surrounding chaos, thumping swirls of bass and hideous thoughts of consciousness, KID BRUNSWICK blows up in the best way possible with his sophomore album,The Feel.

STOP FOCUSING ON NEGATIVE THINGS.

Taking respiratory aid with Kenny Hoopla, Dead Poet Society and POORSTACY, KID BRUNSWICK is the next listing in the rock charter to coast with angry electronica, ominous transparency and a defying character of mixing up the genre of rock into an eclipse of everything else.

4am, Prescription Kid and Bipolar Rhapsody are among the favourites to bring this new young talent into the punk lore of sharing the surrounding chaos of our lifestyle choices. Posing as all-nighter anthems, it tackles negativity, alcoholism and vulnerability, with the cacophony of music fanatics making comparisons to Yungblud. It’s uncanny when you hear their voices alongside one another – angsty, accentuated and embellished.

Merely a few songs deep in his album, Bipolar Rhapsody tops the lot for me with its explosive end-quarter with self-titled and self-proclaimed The Feel bringing in the polar opposite of extent this new project brings to KID BRUNSWICK’s range of work.

WILLOW – ‘lately I feel EVERYTHING’ Album Review

As another day passes, another album project involves the punk icon of Travis Barker. It almost goes without saying that Barker will be involved in some punk cross-collaboration with any artist who seems to afford him. There is certainly clique of quality that resonates with him and I’m fairly confident that certain people may only listen to new punk decorum if Barker is on the throne.

_____

WILLOW’s ‘lately I feel everything‘ is no exception. Shedding away her bubble-gum pout, and flashbacking to her involvements with her mother’s nu-metal band Wicked Wisdom when she younger, she brings along a colossal tarnishing of pop-punk and emo of fistfuls as transparent soul, GROW and Lipstick awaken this punk beauty out from her childhood and into mature musicality and and an ever-growing stage presence.

It’s worth mentioning that the album is not all fast and blurry. don’t SAVE ME and 4ever bring tasteful breaks in the incessant album that add depth and further introspective thoughts to the world of Willow. The transcendent of pop-punk are ever-present too with the dark, drull tones from the likes of The Cranberries and Nirvana crawl through, which is even better for me.
____

She also brings childhood heroes of Avril Lavigne and of course, Barker along for the ride.

Although somewhat cringey at times, that somewhat fall flat in places, its pop-punk. Through and through. There’s no disputing that and if you like a bit of pop-punk easy on the ears musically, then look no further.

And it’s another Travis Barker project to add to the roster. Score.

Release Radar: NEW MUSIC FRIDAY

Another Friday rolls around, and more yearning continues for new music.

It’s been a fair while since we’ve delved down the rabbit hold of new music in the industry. Let’s have a look, shall we?

Nothing But Thieves are back with their profound, raucous rock under, Moral Panic II. The smaller second act of Moral Panic is here with more disaster-abound music with 5 more instalments with the likes of Futureproof and Miracle, Baby.

WILLOW removes her attachments to the old life of hers, and goes full steaming punk with the help of punk icon and esteemed benefactor, Travis Barker. lately i feel EVERYTHING is another trend-setting punk album that is firmly placed in its genre. WILLOW screeches and screams her away to the pursuit of answers she’s been looking for.

Although not as remotely emphatic and europhic as their debut, The Hunna are added to Travis’s roster, as he inputs his name into another rock album with I’d Rather Die Than Let You In. Their third studio album comes with more darker undertones and a serious mentality to approaching metal music full pace. Hopefully, I will get around to a full album review soon.

The splashy ’70s alter-ego of Grohl enters the scene with Dee Gees. Hail Satin. It seems that the Foos have stripped away their hard-edged rock, and flaunted on stage with disco alternatives. Embracing the sheer fun and boredom of industry lockdown, they just play music because they love it. And that’s why we love them.

Hailing from Dublin, Inhaler made their presence known among the spheres of indie-rock with their new debut album of It Won’t Always Be Like This. With My Honest Face charting pretty much every ad sponsor and TV endorsement that headed the bands’ way, the album allowed the Dublin boys to achieve a heroic position in the charts, and an even more commendable fanbase as them and their music, explode. Shifting from the likes of classics, Radicals from the early 2010s, they’ve brought an adapted, fresh new sound to the world of rock.

Artist Spotlight: Badflower

Committing blood, soul and mind to their art, Badflower are a cathartic Los Angeles-bred quartet that you require to be on your rock radar.

Hailed for their triumphs of their debut album, OK, I’M SICK in 2019, their rock stardom catapulted to them to unimaginable scenes, as they achieved commercial success with their hauntingly powerful punches of Ghost, Heroin and The Jester.

The confessions of musicality are in droves as the album implores the discussion of sleep, sex, sadness, mania and pain in doses of hot flashes. Relevant, fresh and fresh, Badflower are continuing to be the thorns in our side as the rock powerhouse we have to listen to as part of our rock ritual.

Recent releases of 30 and Family in 2020 has allowed them to clock up to 280 million streams collectively, and they only plan to go further with their music.

Even if you don’t believe the hype as such, be sure to not miss it – because you can be sure you will. I almost did.

Song of the Day: Sueco’s SOS

Adding to his punk roster, Sueco enlists the help of Travis Barker again for his feature-length return of SOS. It certainly seems that Barker is yet again making his presence known within the punk world, being the leading man with the sticks. Anarchic, contorted and brazen, the triumph of punk’s return is a blistering one. And with the unfortunate news of Mark Hoppus’ diagnosing cancer, it’s certain that all these music artists and avid old-school fanatics of Blink, are doing their best to revel in loyalty and honour to one of the OG’s.

Perfect for a intrepid rock list, a scrum or a scuffle in the playground, it comes with all the tips and tricks that you expect from punk.
