AVENADE TIME LETS GO!!!!

When it comes to AOTY based groups, Avenade is definitely the tip top of what this site can bring. It's a Whimsical Afterlife, even though I didn't get around to reviewing it initially when it first came out, definitely became my 10th most favorite album that came out last year.

It's such a glorious blend of 2000s-2010s rock with elements of industrial, noise rock, shoegaze and many many different stylings that create for both ... read more

"Not Only Does It Suck, but It Also Isn't Real" definitely does not suck and it also is totally real! (*cricket noises*)

Me...biased towards Hawk? Never! Of course not! I definitely do not associate with him in any way hahaha yes.

Okay before anyone brings it up: yes I'm friends with Hawk. No, I'm not giving it a good score only for that reason. This is genuinely a really solid noisy power pop/pop punk outing, even if it's my least favorite of his releases (I'm one of those weirdos who thinks YTSBYBW is his best EP).

So, you may be thinking, "Why should I listen to ... read more
