Louise Distras On Kerrang! 30th Birthday Tribute To Green Day LP

k-green-day-dec-16British firebrand singer songwriter Louise Distras is a part of Kerrang! Magazine’s 30th birthday tribute album to Green Day. American Superhits is out today and available with this weeks issue of Kerrang! Louise Distras had this to say about her appearance on American Superhits

I chose ‘Nice Guys Finish Last’ because it’s one of my favourite tracks from ‘Nimrod’. It’s a classic Green Day track that got me through being bullied at high school, so me and my band decided to keep our cover original and fun. Green Day’s music is a big inspiration to me and I’m honoured to be a part of their 30th birthday tribute!

The CD also features Waterparks, Roam, Beach Slang, Andy Black,  As It Is, Hellions, Milk Teeth, Puppy, The Interrupters, The Xcerts, Candy Hearts, With Confidence and Twin Atlantic

Strength in Weakness: A Lame-O Records Split

Lame-O Records
By

Rating: 4.5/5

 
 

 

 

Whoever said punks don’t care about other people was an asshole. Lame-O Records has a six way split entitled Strength In Weakness that brings together a wide variety of punk-pop players in Philadelphia to make cerebral palsy pay. All proceeds from the split will go towards United Cerebral Palsy–an organization dedicated to educating, advocating and supporting those with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.

Six Philly bands–Spraynard, The Weaks, Modern Baseball, Marietta, Hurry, and Beach Slang–created a new song for the split. Each single melds into the next wonderfully, though each comes from disparate places. Spraynard is jarring with “Haulin’ Oats” and its call to be a better man. The Weaks shred like Rivers Cuomo on “Call Me Away”–though its probably better than WeezerMarietta‘s “Old Joe” is fantastic and perfect for a snowy night. Beach Slang holds down the final position with the eeire and melodic “Too Late To Die Young.” As varied as they are–one jumps from emo to thrash rock to fuzz pop in a few short tracks–each of the bands on this Lame-O split came together from a sole purpose–cerebral palsy sucks.

That’s what Strength in Weakness: A Lame-O Records Split is all about. Cerebral palsy isn’t going away any time soon, but maybe some punky, emo kids can stand up and make a difference in their scene. It has always been about community, hasn’t it?

Beach Slang - Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street EP

Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street

Tiny Engines Records
By

Rating: 4/5

 
 

 

 

Furthering the trickle of new material marking Beach Slang’s quick rise in popularity, the Philadelphia, PA band follows their debut EP with a second four-song dose of raspy alternative tunes.  Their latest effort, Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street, comes mere months after their formal introduction and cements the four-piece as a band to watch for on the road to their eventual full length.  The EP offers plenty of fuel for the loose Goo Goo Doll meets Superchunk comparisons that ran rampant during the first wave of reviews, while continuing to placate the hunger of the No Idea Records faithful with vocal likeness to Sunshine State and Leatherface.  

The band’s draw hinges on their cohesive mix of indie, emo and pop-punk, straddling the line between stuck-in-your-head melody and edges rough enough to keep genre veterans enthused.  Opener “All Fuzzed Out” lands with a heavy, south of mid-tempo beat that finds frontman James Snyder’s marching in line with the equally weighted beats of former Ex-Friends drummer Ed McNulty.  Beach Slang’s authority commands a casual assertiveness that cannot be tuned out despite the intentionally murky film muddying the otherwise magnetic atmosphere.  Singing along with crowd pleaser “American Girls And French Kisses” becomes second nature as a blanket of rolling riffs bolden the track-title dominated chorus.  The less remarkable “Dirty Cigarettes” serves as an early intermediary between album highs that showcases the band’s guitar dominated-side taking control in a way that lesser known-acoustic acts Chad Michael Stewart could perhaps benefit from.

The album closes with with the fuzzed out acoustic piece, “We Are Nothing.”  While not nearly as instrumentally gripping as the first three, the takeaway message of raw individualism punches through adamantly in the featured lyric, “we are nothing like them.”  The sentiment doubly describes Beach Slang’s style and early runaway success.  Despite drawing upon a host of elements from like-minded acts, there’s no risk of plagiarism.  Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street is uniquely Beach Slang – offering up four more tight tunes to a rapidly growing and fulfilling body of work.
