Filmspeed has always thrived on their live shows. The band are super DIY enthusiasts with every track of every album written, recorded, and produced by the band themselves. In the modern music scene of glitz and glam, they wouldn't have it any other way.

Legendary Los Angeles radio station KROQ are teaming up once again with Travis Barker (blink-182) and John Feldmann (Goldfinger) for the 2nd annual Back To The Beach Festival. KROQ aren't new to throwing killer, kickass concerts from The Weenie Roast to Almost Acou...

Fullerton CA indie rock quartet ANDYS ROOM are an emo indie-rock outfit that effortlessly blend emotionally charged lyricism with heavily layered guitars and urgent percussions. Since their inception in 2014, the band have released a debut EP, Yours Forever, which tack...

The tune has the eccentric pop-punk attitude and quirks reminiscent of the early 2000's pop-punk era combined with the band's own blend of "that" southern California pop-punk sound that we all know and love.

With a rad, mellow, unique sound the band reminds me of acoustic rock bands like Yovee meets the harder driven postcore-ness of bands like Thrice or even straight rock like Jimmy Eat World with a stripped down, to the point sound.

Though their origins are questionable, also listing "" as their official band homepage, one thing is for certain, their sound is not. With huge and heavy driving hardcore punk beats, ridiculous high ranged vocals with the 3rd and lower vocal harmonie...

Their first single WEST COAST GIRLS is reminiscent of the early 2000's Alkaline Trio where at points in the tune you almost mistaken lead singer Andy for Matt Skiba. Combine that with the grit of indie punk rock artists like Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg and earlier...

DAD BRAINS goal is much like my own; "to reach dads across the globe." To comfort and relieving dads, knowing that they're not alone in this" and to set good example for their punk rock kin. Like myself, their material isn't just for dads, making...

I get this: Throwback Circa 2003; THUG (that's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater for you neWbz) feel from BLAMING YOU, as if their songs are begging to be part of those BMX and skating game soundtracks.

The band resonates "get out of this town" in my ear with songs like No Winters in the West and 259 Park. Dr.

I had the opportunity to check out another awesome band this week hailing all the way from San Juan, Puerto Rico. A pop-punk quartet known as Late Night Drive.

These guys have only been around since 2015 and already they have one hell of a resume' notched into...

 Very soon after my vacation back from LA, I receive a message from Dream Haze, a So-Cal pop-punk project comprised of twin brothers James and Jake asking me to check them out. Before I dug into the band's new EP Wisher, I caught up with their Untitled album to see wha...

Vacation can be a giant pain in the ass when kids are involved. Shit can hit the fan super quick with tons of time and money being wasted, kids getting fussy and tired, with only a limited amount of time to spend until you're back at life's 9 to 5 haul saving up for th...
