Whether due to personal reasons, creative differences or non-music-related conflicts, it’s pretty common for a band’s lineup to shift over time. And in that same vein, it’s noteworthy when a core group of original members are able to stick it out through all the ups and downs that the music industry brings. In a world […]

Fuckin Whatever

Over the last year, artists have found creative ways to fill their time and connect with their fans. With time and space to either work on new tracks or release previously shelved projects, we’ve been spoiled for choice by many bands and artists, and some of the projects have been unexpected. None, perhaps, more so […]

Successful alternative debut albums | Breakout alternative records

If there’s one universal truth to alternative music, it’s that there’s no one path to success. Many talented artists grind for years, putting out record after record until one day they accumulate a global following. Others may find commercial success following the release of their debut album. Of course, that’s not to say that any […]

2010s alternative female vocalists | Women in alternative music

We already established that not all women sound like Hayley Williams with our look into unique-sounding frontwomen within 2000s alternative music. So, given the generalized diversification of the genre throughout the 2010s, we shouldn’t need to drive that point home again, right? That said, last time the dynamic range present in women’s vocal styles proved to […]

Fuckin Whatever

It’s been nearly five years since Adam Lazzara, John Nolan, Anthony Green and Ben Homola took to privately closing out their summer tour stops with improvised, instrument-less displays of their far-reaching creative talents. Now, the Taking Back Sunday, Circa Survive, and Grouplove supergroup, Fuckin Whatever, are actively collaborating for the first time ever. It seems a strange twist of fate that a collective first […]

band name pronunciations, alesana, pvris, gojira, sleater kinney

If there’s one thing the alternative world is great at, it’s coming up with out-of-this-world band names and songs. We mean, we love taking vowels out of words, swapping a “V” in its place and the like. With unique band names and made-up words, this obviously comes with some discourse relating to how the band […]

thrice, the venetia fair, la dispute, touche amore

Post-hardcore is especially rich in concept albums. Perhaps that’s because the immense vocal palette—from tender crooning to raw screaming—lends itself to expressing emotions. The music similarly matches. Sure, metalcore can deliver crushing breakdowns, but it rarely gets as intimate as this companion genre. There’s also the fact that the high-pitched singing elicits desperation so often […]
