Belvedere – Hindsight Is The Sixth Sense LP (Thousand Islands Records / Lockjaw Records)

I awaited this album with anticipation. I’ve been a Belvedere fan for more than two decades, and I felt the same happiness about this material as I felt with their previous recordings. Hindsight Is The Sixth Sense is their highly anticipated sixth full-length album, announced a couple of months ahead of its release date. The… Read More Belvedere – Hindsight Is The Sixth Sense LP (Thousand Islands Records / Lockjaw Records)

Krang – Make Arcade Great Again LP (SBÄM Records / Sound Speed Records)

I must admit I fell in love with this artwork as soon as the band has announced a brand new release. There’s something post-apocalyptical, satyrical, and meaningful about it. As soon as you grab this vinyl, you’ll realize that Krang glorifies the Planet Of The Apes franchise, mocks Trump’s administration, and emits a meaningful message… Read More Krang – Make Arcade Great Again LP (SBÄM Records / Sound Speed Records)

Chaser – Dreamers CD (Various Labels)

Chaser are back with another outstanding full-length recording. After critically acclaimed Look Alive 7″, these guys took a short break to record highly-anticipated material for their latest effort named Dreamers. Still, the group released a couple of singles prior to the release date, such as 2020, New Direction, and Dreamers, which served as an appropriate… Read More Chaser – Dreamers CD (Various Labels)

The Raging Nathans – Waste My Heart LP (Rad Girlfriend Records)

The Raging Nathans came a long way from a local punk rock band to a critically acclaimed worldwide known act, and there’s a good reason for that. Since their beginnings, the musicians involved in this outstanding band invested blood, sweat, and tears into every single recording they ever released. Their effort is hearable on each… Read More The Raging Nathans – Waste My Heart LP (Rad Girlfriend Records)

Black Sheep – Motion Pictures LP (Bearded Punk Records)

It’s a shame when some excellent record passes unnoticed, and there’s no wondering why this is happening since tons of punk rock recordings are popping up every day. Sometimes some lousy records receive more exposure than other releases, and gems are losing a well-deserved spotlight. Therefore, I decided to dig deeper into Bearded Punk Records… Read More Black Sheep – Motion Pictures LP (Bearded Punk Records)

Captain Kaiser – The Drovers Inn LP (Bearded Punk Records / White Russian Records)

Some record labels became quite prolific by putting out releases almost regularly, without losing the consistency and quality. Exceptional melodic punk rock, skate punk, pop-punk records are popping out on the weekly basis, and sometimes I am barely keeping track of all of them. Of course, this is more than a positive thing, considering the… Read More Captain Kaiser – The Drovers Inn LP (Bearded Punk Records / White Russian Records)

Sidewalk Surfers – Growing Up Is A Mess CD (Barhill Records / Cargo Records)

Sidewalk Surfers made a name for themselves in such a short period. This German skatepunk group from Saarbrücken continuously evolves with time and delivers premium punk rock music with each forthcoming release. Perhaps their discography counts only a couple of recordings, but all of these recordings are bursting with quality. Since their formation, the group… Read More Sidewalk Surfers – Growing Up Is A Mess CD (Barhill Records / Cargo Records)
