A few humble writers’ opinions on the best sounds and compositions of the year.
We decided to see what all the hullabaloo with podcasts was about so we launched our own! Welcome to the very first episode of The Cellar Door Sessions. In our premiere episode, we talk about the first shows we ever saw and what bands you need to go see soon! Hesitation Wounds, The White Noise, My Enemies & I, and Follow My Lead are just some of the bands that we discuss with this one. So listen to us rant and hit us back with your opinions and your show experiences!
The rambunctious, poetic, bouncy, and melodic Brits in Enter Shikari accomplished their mission to take us on a musical journey as we moved through highs and lows, covering a wide spectrum of emotion. From “Constellations” to “Mothership,” “The Paddington Frisk,” and an assortment of tracks from The Mindsweep, their electronic, energetic entertainment included a trumpeting Reynolds, a crowdsurfing amp with Rory Clewlow standing on it while playing, and Rory Clewlow walking across the VIP over the bar and into the stairs and seating in the back of the venue, amongst other shenanigans. Their live performance is guaranteed to keep you off your feet. Enter Shikari can make you move whether you want to or not.
Now that we did one,
It’s time we show you round two,
Happy Wednesday, punks!
The White Noise are straight killing it right now. They’re freshly signed to Fearless Records (through which they just released their debut EP Aren’t You Glad?) and they already sound like they’ve been at the top of the game for a while. Check out their new music video for “Picture Day,” and if they’re headed your way, go see them on tour with I See Stars, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, Get Scared and Palaye Royale!
Sometimes a band is just that good that their traction picks up like Speed Racer in The Mach 5. While The White Noise has only been a band since the summer of 2015, they have already signed to Fearless Records and booked a tour as support for Get Scared, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! and I See Stars this February. So how do you go from fledgling beginnings to booking a label tour? You have something to offer to the industry.
