New $#!+ Sick $#!+
David has been lying in bed sick. With nothing to do but listen to new music, a lot was consumed.Then, he had a small window where his energy returned, so he figured he would make good of his time doing nothing.This is the result of that.14 new tracks from artists including:Stateside, MXPX, Fiddlehead, Restraining Order, Wilmette, The Front Bottoms, To Kill Achilles and more!OUR LINKS:GRAB SOME MERCHTWITTERINSTAGRAMFACEBOOK
We're still stuck in Canada! So, why not dig in to another two classic Canadian albums?In this one David and Aaron discuss the albums 'Watch Out!' and 'Crisis' by Alexisonfire.As per usual, we share our introductions to the band, general thoughts on the albums, and a deep dive on 4 songs from each.OUR LINKS:GRAB SOME MERCHTWITTERINSTAGRAMFACEBOOK
It's the middle of summer, so we had to cover a band that takes their name from the season, and has a song named after the season.In this one David and Aaron discuss Canadian pop punk kings, Sum 41 - specifically their albums 'All Killer No Filler' and 'Does This Look Infected?'. They share their first impressions an introduction to the band, Canadian television talk shows, music videos, and wearing clean underwear. They also talk openers (sort of), closers (joke songs be damned), and a couple hand picked tracks from each album.OUR LINKS:GRAB SOME MERCHTWITTERINSTAGRAMFACEBOOK
