Featured in this week’s issue of The Aquarian Weekly is my interview with Alex Henry on Basement. We talked briefly about the band’s upcoming reunion tour dates, the spotaneous writing process and release of their latest EP, Further Sky, Reading & Leeds and many more. I am beyond excited to finally see them in NYC in a few weeks. It’s going to be a completely surreal show.

Way way way way back in June, I reviewed The Front Bottoms EP, Rose for The Aquarian Weekly and it finally made its way into this week’s issue. To celebrate, here is a disposable photo that I took of Brain (that you’ve all probably reblogged over 1,000 times) when TFB played at Russo’s Music in Asbury Park last summer with A Great Big Pile of Leaves.
You can give it a read here.

Since I’ve been getting back into the swing of writing again, I am going to be doing posting up some work daily (or every other day or so). Starting off the weekend, I finished up a review last night on Semiotics debut EP, Simple Requests for the site Fastest Kid in School.
Based out of New Brunswick, New Jersey, this upcoming act at times mirrors the agnsty college rock vibes of Weezer’s Blue Album, while wearing their hearts on their sleeves with a nostalgically-driven pop punk sound in vein of Brand New’s Your Favorite Weapon. Coming to a basement show near you. (FFO: Modern Baseball, Weezer and Brand New).
You can check out my review here.
You can also groove out to their tunes on bandcamp and check them out on Facebook as well.

THE LUNGS - PUDDLESPLASHER
The Lungs - Crooked Lines
The Lungs - Burgundy/Puddlesplasher
This is my friend’s new band The Lungs. A few of the members were also in the band Late Night Beers. If you are into very reverb and fuzzed out shoegaze influenced emo along the lines of Pity Sex and Forming then these guys will be your new favorite band.
Bump this and spread the good word to your friends. They have an EP coming out this weekend.

I wanna die with you once or twice.
I wanna lie with you until the pain is through for a while.”
Late Night Beers - Waking.
I have a few friends in this band and these guys are really great. This is only demo versions and the re-mastered tracks for their upcoming Ep, Waking, will be on their way shortly so all you guys should definitely get stoked on this. Be on the look out for these dudes in the summer.

Also I just wrote up a review for For the Life of Me’s upcoming EP Closure. Give these guys a listen they’re pretty sweet.

One flawless album from start to finish.
