When Summers Gone – December EP Album Review

Upon hearing the first track on When Summers Gone’s EP, December, it’s really difficult not to approach it from the viewpoint of a jaded music writer. For one thing, singer Dave Graziani’s vocal cadence apes a who’s-who of ’90s frontmen, such as Chris Cornell (mostly), Gavin Rossdale, and Eddie Vedder. The record’s second song, “Welcome...Read...

Armalite – Self-Titled Album Review

Over twenty minutes of fast, catchy pop-punk songs that sound like Screeching Weasel and J Church. Songs such as “Grace,” “Unfinished Business,” and “When Nice People Think Dumb Things, Attack, And Vote” are the kind of clever jabs that have been laid to rest in place of LiveJournal posts put to guitars.
