Heartsounds – “Internal Eyes” album review

reviews_heartsounds-internal-eyes_400San Francisco’s Heartsounds seemingly sprang up out of nowhere a few years ago but have quickly joined the ranks of a handful of bands carrying the melodic, technical skatepunk flag.

But while the current kings of the sound, A Wilhelm Scream and Propagandhi, add a healthy dose of thrash metal to their punk, Heartsounds play a slightly less headspinning, but still ultra-catchy style of punk that pays homage to genre forbearers like Strung Out and 88 Fingers Louie.

Fierce Bad Rabbit – The Maestro and the Elephant Album Review

FBR_joshneil.com_9_800Fierce Bad Rabbit was a new name to me, but after listening to their newest release, The Maestro and the Elephant, I don’t think that this will be the last time that I will hear from them. The band is very easy to listen to.
A popular release this year was The National’s new album, and I believe that fans of that band might like this release too. The vocals on this album are very easy to listen to, and the guitar parts matched with strings and horns make for a good backdrop. An occasional treat in the album is that lines will be sang together in harmonies that sound like something right off of an album by The Eagles. This band writes good songs that are good for relaxing and enjoying without having to rock out. A standout track on the album is Matter of Time, which is a good anthemic song without being too fist-pump-y. It is a good thing to see more bands like this getting attention. These guys seem to have their heads in the right places, they focus on sounding good and creating pure music without any sort of crazy post-production.
I would recommend this band for fans of the new folk/Springsteen-esque rock, The National, Gaslight Anthem, The Hold Steady etc and perhaps even to fans of bands like Nada Surf. If you want to pop on some music to relax and have a good time, Fierce Bad Rabbit will be a solid choice for you!
