Live Review & Photos: Bush at REBEL, Toronto

May 18 will forever be scarred by the tragic loss of one of the greatest grunge (and overall rock n’ roll) singers of all time, Chris Cornell. On that day of shock and sadness there was a positive caveat for fans to come together and enjoy music of the same era as Bush passed through the Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub while on tour for their latest album Black and White Rainbows. After opening their 105-minute set with their very first single dating back to 1994, “Everything Zen,” frontman Gavin Rossdale commented…

WATCH: Josh Manuel (Issues), “Pokémon Theme (Cover)”

After a bit of touring, the guys of Issues are resting up before their Vans Warped Tour stint this summer. Drummer Josh Manuel has taken the time to perfect his craft and display it in the coolest of ways: a kick-ass cover. Manuel did a drum cover of the Pokémon theme, and it in style. His intensity and power behind the kit – styled like a Pokéball, by the way – made it a great cover. CHeck it out below! For more Issues, you can purchase a concert ticket here…

WATCH: Rena “Symptom of Youth” Music Video

Brooklyn based Electro Pop-Rock artist, Rena, just premiered a music video for her latest single, “Symptom of Youth.” The single is off of her debut EP, Rude Chick, due out May 6th. It’s fairly reminiscent of very early Avril Lavigne, and in a way, it seems like you’ve been transported back to the nineties. The song is filled with energy, angst, and passion, all which you would find at a party. Her debut EP showcases a wide variety of incredible vocal melodies, instrumentals and the power that one can withhold. You can purchase a CD here and check out…

Make the jump and check it out below. Additionally, if you’re in Los Angeles today, (April 18, aka Record Store Day) be on the look out for a Blur-themed ice cream truck giving out free ice cream and flexi discs of their single “Lonesome Street”! Check out their flyer with truck locations and times…

The Smashing Pumpkins Perform “Drum + Fife” on The Tonight Show

I’ll admit it; my age has put me at a fault here. I’d love to say I’m a fan of The Smashing Pumpkins, but I’m too young to really say so. (Also I’ve never heard them called The Smashing Pumpkins, just Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a bit weird with the “the”. Anyway…) They’re a band whose hits have stuck around, but for he majority of the public that’s all they know. You could play “Today” or “1979” and anyone around my age would nod and say, “oh yeah, I’ve totally heard…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Maine ‘Forever Halloween Deluxe Edition’

 As if The Maine hadn’t entranced us enough with Forever Halloween (which has remained on the Alternative Press charts since its initial release), they went and made a deluxe version of the album, complete with new tracks. Needless to say, no one had to twist my arm to give it a listen. The deluxe version of Forever Halloween starts off exactly the same, with the classic vibe riding high on “Take What You Can Carry.” One thing I love about deluxe albums? I can sing along to a majority of…

ALBUM REVIEW: Adam Reczek ‘In the Night, For The Morning’

When you start listening to Andover, Massachusetts native Adam Reczek’s newest album In the Night, for the Morning, there will be something about his music that you’ll absolutely love… but you just won’t be able to put your finger on what it is exactly that keeps you listening. It might be his vocals that are at times wonderfully deep, or possibly the guitar twangs that embody the “folk” genre alongside magnificent electric guitar solos, reminding listeners that “rock” is also part of his sound. Or maybe it’s the overall retro…

ALBUM REVIEW: Brody Dalle ‘Diploid Love’

If you’ve listened to the Distillers and Spinnerette, you know the name Brody Dalle. Former frontwoman of both, this badass rocker chick is testing her hands at a solo career with her new album, Diploid Love, out April 29th – which, might I add, is an outstanding new start to add to an already successful career. As Katie Presley states on NPR’s First Listen of Diploid Love, this 9-track album “ feels like a time capsule buried in the backyard of the punk and grunge-drenched early ’90s” and I couldn’t…

The Recent Reunion Resurgence & Our Nostalgia Obsession

Nostalgia is strange, and in the current hip culture of 2014 it’s even more bizarre than it used to be.  Now I don’t mean to be nostalgic about nostalgia, but there used to be a time when nostalgic things that we joyously reminisced about stayed in the past, exactly where we remembered them just as we remembered them; all perfect and cleaned up by years of misremembering—and most importantly, in the past.  But recently, we seem to have this fascination with all things ‘90s or vintage and relating to our…
