Clipwing - Ashford

Hi all, Dane here. Back again with another review. This week I'll be getting all up close and personal with Clipwing, their EP Ashford has been doing the rounds of my audio devices and I'm going to give you a quick rundown. The EP comes with five tracks and was released earlier this year on Coffeebreath and Heartache Records. If you buy the EP online, you do get seven extra bonus tracks of demo material in both acoustic and full band form. For some people these might be a bit superfluous  but personally I like to hear how a song changes between the initial birth of the idea and the recorded version so the inclusion of these tracks was a welcome bonus for me.

Live albums are a fickle thing. A good live show has an energy, a magic unquantifiable thing that weaves through the crowd and leaves them with a warm feeling of camaraderie and joy. It's that feeling of witnessing something special, the exchange of grins and stories after the show that keeps people coming back. And it's a onetime thing, it's not supposed to be captured. The beauty lies in the fleeting moment that's not meant to last. Unless it's done right. And this album is.

BAD COP BAD COP – NOT SORRY

Written by Ryan Haigh

 

This was a band that took me by surprise. Not knowing much about them at all, and being my first review back after a bit of a break, I was hoping to get a great record to get me back into the groove and I was not disappointed. This release from Bad Cop Bad Cop was a mix of punk rock, with a hint of Ska and a dash of folk which made for a great listen from start to finish. I was on the road for a few hours last night and managed to listen to this album through twice and loved it more and more with each listen.

Self Titled Cover

Red City Radio’s self-titled record is one of niceness.
As in; “…my Mum is in the car, I should put on something that I can enjoy and she can at least tolerate”, my particular mother being a 4 foot conservative Filipino woman whom I only coerced into sheepishly uttering the word “shit” in the last couple of years and defiantly disproves of the majority of my musical tastes and endeavors. Despite a closet pride in the fact that I’m not down on Swanston Street begging for change… Yet.

The start of 2015 was a busy time for West Australian punkers The Decline, with band members leaving and band members arriving festival announcements and further to all that the guys have announced album number three as well as a national Australian tour. Lucky the change over of band members didn't slow the guys down as they went straight into record Resister at Electric City Studios with Adam Round and Sam Allen, then sent it over to a punk rock go to guy known by the name Jason Livermore at The Blasting Room.  

English punkers Templeton Pek, have launched pre-orders for their up coming album 'New Horizons' which is out July 24th via Hardline Entertainment. The Birmingham trio recorded their album at The Porch in Hermosa Beach with Ken Seaton and got it mixed by Cameron Webb (Motorhead, Pennywise, Sum 41, Lit) at Maple Studios.
