SNFU – The One Voted Most Likely To Succeed (For fans of Propagandhi, Good Riddance, Face To Face)

Canadian skate thrash gods (eh?) Forming back in 1981, SNFU (which stands for Society’s No Fucking Use) has quite the catalog of albums under their belt (9 full studio albums to be exact). The One Voted Most Likely To Succeed was their 6th release, and it is more solid than your stool after eating green bananas. TOVMLTS features SNFU’s perfect blend of straight up thrash and skate punk. The mix isn’t as hard hitting as “In The Meantime and Between Time”, but the songs are […]

Annabel – Each and Everyone (For fans of Built to Spill, Look Mexico, Modest Mouse)

If it’s not fast and heavy, reggae, or Johann Sebastian Bach, I usually hate it. If the music sounds hipster-y (you know, that indie shuffle drum beat, vocals try to sound like Modest Mouse or Pavement), you can count on me double hating it. So the fact that I’m liking Annabel’s “Each and Everyone” is a bit of a logical fallacy. The songs are slow, long, and uhhh…. really good actually. There’s a lot going on in these songs. Bells, keys, cymbal heavy, and intricate […]

Memorial Day Weekend (A Mix!)

Hello trusty housewivers… I’m going to be gone up until Tuesday or so hanging out in Boston with some friends, so I probably won’t have a chance to update until then. Hope all you have a kick ass memorial day, try not to kill uncle Ralph once he accidentally lights your house on fire when he’s barbecuing, and I’ll see you suckas next week.

Ensign – Direction of Things To Come (For fans of Paint It Black, Gorilla Biscuits, Ten Yard Fight)

I don’t know how it happened. Being a Jersey kid, there are two bands that I’m completely embarrassed that I’ve never seen live: Bigwig and Ensign. Hell, even my girlfriend who completely hates hardcore and shows has seen both of these bands live. For those who don’t know, Ensign is an old school hardcore band that is pretty big in NJ’s hardcore scene. Playing good ole’ fashioned hardcore in the veins of Youth of Today, Ensign actually has a bit more punk elements than most […]

mc chris / Whole Wheat Bread (live in Philly 5/19/09)

Last night, I headed down to Philly’s beloved First Unitarian to catch my favorite nerd rapper mc chris. Last time I saw the master chief, I was pretty sure that the predator baby was going to come out of my stomach, thus due to extreme pains, it made the show a bit less than enjoyable (yay for being a vegatarian allergic to soy). This time around I went soy free, and pain free… and ready to dance stand and listen to one nerdy rapper. Last […]

Higher Giant and Off With Their Heads (Live In Philly 5/18/09)

Last night, although beyond exhaustion, I headed out to the tiny dive up in North Philly known as the Barbary in order to catch Higher Giant. I was running really late, but the show was running even later, so I made it in time for the openers. Detournement:Detournement is compromised of a pretty respectable lineup: members from Bigwig, Worthless United, Ensign, and a slew of other cream of the crop Jersey bands. Theoretically, they should completely rip it live with their experience. Their performance last […]

I Went To A Graduation And All I Got Was My Camera Stolen (A Mix!)

So, this past weekend I headed out to bumble-fuck Pennsylvania to go to my brother’s college graduation. On the morning of said graduation, my camera either: 1. Fell out of my pocket2. Was stolen by some sketchy, “I actually have a gold tooth and look like I’m a 40 year old greaser” dude who came up to me. Since I pretty much searched that entire place multiple times looking for my camera, I’m gonna guess it was jacked… at a graduation. I hope I’m wrong, […]

Rise Against’s Brand Spankin’ New 7″

Wow, Rise Against still does have the ability to make blistering punk rock songs, as proven on their latest Self Titled 7 inch released on May 12th, 2009 on their old label Fat Wreck. They don’t mention the new 7″ anywhere on their website, and I was reluctant to check it out after hearing that Nickelback wanna-be album known as “Appeal To Reason”. The 2 songs were actually recorded during the Appeal To Reason sessions, but since they’re heavier, they probably didn’t make the major […]

Protest The Hero (Live In Philly 5/11/09)

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuMaI8kHkWM] Yes… I know, it’s been a show blitz here at the housewives, but that’s how we role! Despite feeling like utter shit on Monday, I headed out to see my favorite Canadian prog-metal/thrashers Protest The Hero. When I got in, Protest The Hero’s merch guy started to talk to me about Propagandhi (I was wearing a Propagandhi shirt), and said although it doesn’t happen every show, they might play a cover. Awesome. When I got in… Misery Signals was setting up. They were your […]
