The Frontline

Withstand, 2005

Set to Explode, 2005

Sometimes the Internet can be a glorious thing, and we can all thank Al Gore for that... It is because of the glorious invention that I first became aware of ...

Piñata, 2006

8.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

When you look at the pedigree of Cloak/Dagger, you really can't argue with it: American Nightmare, Striking Distance, Count Me Out, and Trial by Fire, among others. But what is ...

Deep Sleep

You're Screwed, 2006

200 Words Or Less

Time to Escape - Time to Escape album cover

Time to Escape

Time to Escape, 2007

7.5 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Bands like Time to Escape are the reason I picked up a record player. It's not so I can score crucial pre-order/fest only vinyl. It's because hardcore bands like Time ...

Wasted Time - No Shore album cover

Wasted Time

No Shore, 2007

7.6 / 10
200 Words Or Less

Wasted Time basically sounds like Time to Escape but with more gruff vocals and more influences that stem from early New York hardcore than Dischord. Once again, if it's done ...

Deep Sleep - Three Things at Once album cover

Deep Sleep

Three Things at Once, 2009

6.5 / 10

Big Eyes - Almost Famous album cover

Big Eyes

Almost Famous, 2013

8.5 / 10

Seattle is made out to be such a dreary place. Big Eyes released a largely positive-sounding debut in Hard Life and the reviews basically talked about the band’s relocation from Brooklyn to ...

Night Birds - Born To Die In Suburbia album cover

Night Birds

Born To Die In Suburbia, 2013

8.5 / 10

Releasing the 7” teaser Maimed for the Masses certainly helped introduce the increasingly prominent surf guitar in Night Birds. Still, the opener “Escape from New York” is a holy shit moment as ...

Earth Girls

Wrong Side of History, 2014

8.0 / 10
