"Modern" Music to Check Out

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

Surprised I haven't made a thread for these guys in the past, but the ever-reliable A Day To Remember have released another fine album. It's called 'Bad Vibrations.'

 

1 - Bad Vibrations
2 - Paranoia
3 - Naivety
4 - Exposed
5 - Bullfight
6 - Reassemble
7 - Justified
8 - We Got This
9 - Same About You
10 - Turn Off The Radio
11 - Forgive And Forget
12 - Negative Space
13 - In Florida
A couple of my favourite tunes;
I was also pretty impressed with the new Crown The Empire album, 'Retrograde.' Gone are the post-hardcore screams, and what's left is actually a pretty good, catchy modern hard rock/metal disc;
1 - Sk-68
2 - Are You Coming With Me?
3 - Zero
4 - Aftermath
5 - Hologram
6 - The Fear Is Real
7 - Lucky Us
8 - Weight Of The World
9 - Signs Of Life
10 - Oxygen
11 - Kaleidoscope

 

I am liking the new ADTR album but it's nowhere near as good as 'Homesick'

 

 

Nah, to be honest it's one of their weaker recent albums, but I do find them very reliable even when they're not at their absolute best. I'd put it behind 'Homesick,' 'Common Courtesy' and 'What Separates me from you.'

 

But, considering they're all 80%+ albums in my eyes, it's hardly a bad thing. :)

 

Agreed

 

Good band although I think they would be even better if they toned down a lot of the screaming , their best songs are the ones with no screams IMO

 

That Crown the empire looks interesting , will check that one out

 

 

To be honest, I didn't expect a single scream on the ADTR disc, considering the direction they seemed to be heading in on recent albums. I agree they're better without them.

this song is hard to miss constantly on the radio, but I love it, and I've been checking out remixes of it too, they're great!

I think this thread is dedicated to "Modern" Rock.

 

Anyway, I love Daft Punk, and I love The Weeknd, but when I first heard "Starboy" I thought, what part of this is Daft Punk? It doesn't really sound like Daft Punk. However, when I heard "I Feel It Coming" I was like, this is Daft Punk! Sure enough I was right. Now that song I absolutely adore!!

I have thought about this idea but figured most people just don't care and the ones that do already take notice. I'll add the best to this thread if it stays alive, but to begin with a few essentials I couldn't live without, and that I think everyone should hear are:

 

Cauterize

http://www.myspace.com/cauterized

 

Change of Pace

http://www.myspace.com/achangeofpace

 

Just Surrender

http://www.myspace.com/justsurrenderrock

 

Hedley

http://www.myspace.com/hedley

 

Funeral for a Friend (especially 'Tales don't tell themselves'):

http://www.myspace.com/funeralforafriend

 

Yellowcard (especially 'Paper Walls')

http://www.myspace.com/yellowcard

 

Story of the Year

http://www.myspace.com/storyoftheyear

This made me laugh. Not because of the bands listed, but because of all those MySpace links. ;}

 

Remember when that was​ a thing?

Brand New is an American rock band. They have released 4 albums till date. I checked their songs on YouTube but didn't really like most of them. I would say the song I have posted on this thread is their best and the only one I like.

Oh lol, sorry, I missed that it was Brand New. Yeah, I think I've heard most of their album but I agree, they're not very good. I still have 'Your favourite weapon' somewhere, but I can't even think of a song from it.

I'm surprised I haven't mentioned these guys before. They've been releasing good albums for quite a while now. Their latest is called 'All These Countless Nights' and whilst it's not amazing, it'll appeal to people who like what's become of Young Guns.

1 - Ashes, Ashes
2 - Trigger
3 - L.O.V.E
4 - Happiness
5 - Fever
6 - Like a Ghost
7 - Pretty Low
8 - England
9 - Seattle
10 - St. Paul's
11 - Sing
12 - Pensacola, 2013
13 - Cassiopeia (Bonus Track)
Some really fine songwriting on display on this album;
The album;
I've actually not heard their debut myself, but if you like this check out their other stuff. My introduction to the band was 'Fools & Worthless Liars,' which I think is a very nice album.
2009 - Meet Me Halfway, at Least
2011 - Fools and Worthless Liars
2013 - Old Souls
2017 - All These Countless Nights

The Everyday anthem sound pretty cool , must definitely check that out and the Suburbia story ones sound nice too

 

I've tried to get into Mallory Knox but can't for some reason

Those two are good catchy releases.

 

I'm not overall a fan of Mallory Knox either, and don't like their previous albums. This one is still patchy as hell, but the good songs (there are only a handful of them) are much better than before. I love the good songs off it. But they're limited. ;)

I stumbled upon these guys recently and i am really liking what i hear , a bit of too close to touch in their sound although a bit heavier

Not bad, I think they'd be a lot better if they lost the alternate, screamo vocals and just left it with the primary vocalist

The both sound great - Secrets and Life Awaits. I'll check out both. Jeez that Secrets band sounds familiar. I thought it was the product of Namesake disbandoning but I don't believe it is.

    • Loved their first album. Really disappointed by the second.  After 2 or 3 spins I'd say this one's a lot better than the last. 
    • Looking forward to this one   1. I Salute You 2. Arianne 3. Night Drive 4. Chariot Of Fire 5. Bring On The Rain 6. Love Is A Beautiful Lie 7. Ticking Away 8. Battle Ground 9. Candle In The Window 10. Rock In The City Vinyl and CD pre-orders announced soon. 
    • I was only reacting to the statement 'I'd rather have the virus and the economy recover'  be careful what you wish is all. over and out. see ya 
    • Just to explain how good we have it here in Australia. Our total cases since the beginninga re around 10,000 Yesterday, the USA had over 60,000 new cases. that's 6 times our total since it began. What right to we have to complain. Like I said before, the US is fucked with this, and I don't mean that in a nasty way, I mean that in feeling sorry for how rampant it is there. :(
    • Jeez you love the drama, mate.  Yes, the disease will have long-term effects on some - a very small minority of all those who contract it. It may also come out in the fullness of time that Measles, the Flu, Conjunctivitis etc... whatever... that any range of diseases would also have caused long term side-effects to these same people if they'd contracted some other form of disease.  But, for the overwhelming, vast majority of people, these side effects you want to panic the whole world with will likely not exist.  I really don't get your fondness for these wild blanket statements you make.  The other thing I keep thinking about this thing is that for every diagnosed case of COVID-19 there are probably double the amount of people that may have also had it and not even known it, or not had it diagnosed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the virus is a great thing and sign me up - I want a copy. Just saying your thirst for drama is real. 
    • A great track from the new E19 album. Their fourth. These guys are always sensational value. Very underrated.     
    • Not great (and not bad) but I'll anticipate the rest of the album is better. I think I liked the last one too. 
    • I know nothing about this but sounds like extreme intelligence in motion again. I believe later this week the colour white will be removed from colour charts around the world?  I personally feel strongly that reading, writing and all forms of speech should be banned so as not to cause offence to anyone.
    • Irresistable - Steve Carrell is in this, so an instant watch for me. Was only ok though. Enjoyable enough, wouldn't go out of my way to see it again. Becky - only issue is that her age in this movie is 13, which is too young for what she does. Kevin James plays a white supremasist in this, so it's been removed from Netflix, which is kinda stupid. He is actually really good in it. Survive The Night - Bruce Willis, so I gave it a go. Rent-a-script. Seen it 100 times before.
