So its January 1st. Which means a whole year of music has gone by and we are about to start a new one.
My highlights of the year and i would reccamend to anyone would have to be:
Handwritten by Gaslight Anthem; Gaslight anthem is almost a gimic band, playing songs almost completely about the Rock n Roll scene of the 50's and 60's, but with sweet Punk Licks and up beat magic.
Exister by Hot Water Music; probably the greatest band ever, and they come back strong after a few years hiatus with their post-punk sound. I couldnt have been more exited for its release and i stand by it being one of the best from so long ago back in may.
Rocket By Tree House Fire; this one is some sweet Ska-hiphop magic from over in the UK. Its kind of hard to describe, but lets just say i had the people at work calling me to ask what it was so they could enjoy it at home.
Failed States by Propagandhi; Now this one is an aquired taste. Quite the skate punk band that took their sound to a different leve a few years ago, now into the Super hardcore stuff with suprisingly a little bit of noise rock thrown in. but the band has really pulled together some good stuff in recent years.
What did you guys think of this year in music? their was so much more stuff i didnt mention but id like to read your thoughts.
