CD Review: The Thermals - We Were Sick
The Thermals have just released their latest album, 'Now We Can See,' a pure and simple jettison of pop punk; and this, their second single from this album is certainly all you've come to expect from the infectious Portland trio.

CD Review: The Charlatans - Love Is Ending

Live Review: Taking Back Sunday
Gigs for nostalgia's sake always seem to get me slightly more excited than gigs for bands I currently like or am interested in.

CD Review: The Hedrons - Be My Friend
Over the years all-woman bands and rock haven't always gone well together. They've either been too poppy and flowery like the Bangles or they go over the top like L7, but almost always forgettable.

Live Review: Strike Anywhere + The Loved Ones + Down and Outs + The Mercury League
The sound has always been well in the Well, prompting the recent influx of American hardcore bands like Samiam and Propagandhi and these 'intimate' gigs.

CD Review: Man Overboard - Real Talk
Man Overboard are here to "defend pop-punk" and as a lover of the genre I'd gladly head into battle with them.

CD Review: Everything We Left Behind - Pull Back And Go
The debut mini-album from Bristol-based four-piece Everything We Left Behind has a formula, and that formula is: take all the best features of pop-punk (the energy, exuberance and big, fat choruses,) while replacing all the worst features of pop-punk (the tenancy towards character-less over-production; the irritating over-chirpiness) with some actual punk characteristics, like you actually find in actual punk (and not, very often, in pop-punk.) So, album-opener 'Big Thanks To The Sun' features all the usual offenders of the pop-punk genre - springy drumbeats; "whoooooa" backing vocals; melodic-voiced frontman - wrapped up in a crackly production, with lashings of broken-glass riffing and a general roughness that pleasantly recalls local bands and live music.

Band Profile: The Spivs
Three borderline human beings. We're called the Spivs because we are purveyors of dodgy goods like a 1940's wideboy with a banana up his sleeve.

CD Review: Broadway Calls - Good Views, Bad News
Pop-punk is currently a rather oversaturated genre; so, do we really need Broadway Calls' sophomore effort 'Good Views, Bad News?' Well, not really, although if you're looking for a 90s style, back-to-basics shot of melodic punk, you could do a whole lot worse than the Oregon three-piece.

CD Review: A - Something's Going On
When the Britpop phenomenon began to die, a drunken conversation at the Good Mixer in the over-hyped Camden Town resulted in the legendary birth of Britrock; a few bands were located for championing in the NME and a few more emerged from the woodwork.

CD Review: Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames - Signal Noise
Already a mainstay and one of the most immediate and sublime highlights of Leeds' very own 10 legged, triple afro adorned post-punk 5 piece Shut Your Eyes And You'll Burst Into Flames' ever staggeringly good live shows, it's not a shock that 'Signal Noise' is the opening shot of what could be a very special musical journey indeed.

CD Review: Avosetta - Of Our Lives
'Of Our Lives,' the debut EP from Norwich-based five piece Avosetta is one of those frustrating releases where each song has many good points, that never quite come together right.

CD Review: Chase This City - Show Us What You Got?
Just a year after forming, Lancaster-based Chase This City release six-track mini album 'Show Us What You Got?' flaunting a talent for penning towering, pop-punk choruses, that's impressive to say they've been together a short time.

CD Review: The Audition - Self-Titled Album
The Chicagoan quartet are back on top form with their third studio album, simply entitled 'Self-Titled Album.' This is the band's first release since the departure of original bassist and founding member Joe Lussa and the follow up to 2008's 'Champion.' The opening track 'The Running Man' is an upbeat song with a catchy chorus and an electric mix of drums and rhythm guitar.

CD Review: Various Artists - Supercharged
Nu-metal has become increasingly popular over recent years, so much so that it can now be afforded its own place in the compilation CD market, no longer confined to an occasional Kerrang cover disk; one such recent compilation is the Supercharged album, a twenty track mix of nu-metal, pop-punk and primarily Americanised, now mainstream, rock marketed directly to the young kids at Garage and Star.

CD Review: Eureka Machines - Everyone Loves You
'Everyone Loves You' is the first single to be lifted off Eureka Machine's full length debut 'Do Or Die.' A power pop rollercoaster of rock and roll riffs and stomping drumbeats, topped off with euphoric pop vocals, 'Everyone Loves You' successfully takes the rock and roll swagger of old, and slathers it in a pop gloss.

CD Review: The Knife - Deep Cuts
Storming out of Sweden are brother and sister combo Olof and Kristin Dreijer, aka The Knife. Unlike other famous brother and sister combos, the music isn't thrashy garage rock, nor is it arty punk pop.

CD Review: The Marmozets - Out Of My Control
Without being patronising, to say Bingley-based band The Marmozets have an average age of sixteen (and, apparently, this EP was recorded when they had an average age of just fifteen,) 'Out Of My Control' is impressive.

CD Review: Young Guns - All Our Kings Are Dead
Young Guns have a meatier, hard-rock and metalcore influenced take on melodic punk rock. Although this album delivers a sugar-suckerpunch, it has the big riffs to extend that headrush into something more long-lasting.

CD Review: Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences - We Are Not Other People
'Unexpected Error' makes no effort to ease the listener into the weird and wonderful world of Paul Hawkins & Thee Awkward Silences, as it opens with a blaring, Atari-esque sound effect that'll make you wonder whether this is, in fact, a comedy album.

CD Review: Bowling For Soup - Sorry For Partyin'
'Sorry For Partyin' is Bowling For Soup's tenth studio album and, while it's definitely not a case of all killer, no filler, it's a fan-pleasing slab of the tried-and-tested Bowling For Soup formula: sexual innuendoes; big, pop-infused choruses; hidden tracks, and plenty of tongue-in-cheek lyrics.

CD Review: Chiodos - Bone Palace Ballet
Second album from rising Michigan hardcore crew Chiodos begins as it means to go on, with the distinctly operatic 'Two Birds Stoned At Once.' Opening with a shiver-inducing Victorian-tinged violin, 'Two Birds Stoned At Once' recalls The Used's 'The Bird and The Worm,' both in terms of its operatic leanings and the Bert McCracken-like twinge to frontman Craig Owens' voice.

CD Review: Goldie Lookin' Chain - ASBO4Life
'ASBO4Life' is one of the strangest albums I've heard in a while. In an ideal world new material would be judged purely on its own merits, but when a group has previously always followed such a rigid and distinctive formula, it's impossible not to expect more of the same.
