South American scene never ceases to amaze me with so many bands coming out every day and releasing super music to the world. End of Pipe are from Brasil and this is their new record.
There are 10 songs on this record. The music is punkrock, heavily influenced by skatepunk and melodic hardcore. The lyrics are in English and they are pretty good, bordering on the edge of personal and politics. I love the vocals, the singer reminds a lot of Pennywise singer Jim with the colour of the voice. I love more uptempo, faster songs, although this is not your typical skatepunk fast forward band, this is clever and well arranged song rhythm and great emotional melodies in guitar riffs, super vocals and anthemic choruses, topped with smart lyrics, you get a great record. Recommended songs: The Secret, 80 Shots, Memories.
Scott Sellers just keeps delivering and delivering, bombing us away and melting our faces off with his awesome new albums full of melodic punk and fast skatepunk anthems.
This time, he releases the memory box of his influences, like the title of the albums says. This album takes me to my youth, delivering bombs of songs, with so many great covers on this album. There are 10 songs of the bands that influenced Scott in his relentless work discipline in creating great music, namely Strung Out, Face To Face, Slick Shoes, Lagwagon, MxPx, Nofx, Blink 182, Millencolin, No Use For A Name and BIGWIG. Like any other covers album, there are some songs you like more, some you like less, but this one is full of fantastic songs, so thumbs up for all of the songs on it.
Bad Cop/Bad Cop are back with their third full length album out with Fat Wreck Chords. The girls have outdone themselves this time. There are 12 songs on this record, one being better than the other. For those who don`t know, they play energetic and melodic punkrock with multiple vocals, courtesy of Stacey and Jennie, great backing vocal harmonies and superb lyrics, from personal themes like love, depression and survival to modern and political themes like refugees, people who are left without their homes, sexism, feminism, anarchism and other themes. It is very hard for me to tell which songs I like better, but I will tell you some personal favorites of mine: Certain kind of monster, Community and Pursuit of Liberty. Superb album, I recommend you to go see one of their shows when this epidemic shit is over, they also rule live.
