131 is Emarosa‘s follow up album to Versus, which already proved they’re a force to be reckoned with. With their latest release they continue to impress and prove they can produce consistent, good quality material.
Treehouse by I See Stars is a curveball from the band. It’s the first album the band released since the departure of members Zach Johnson and Jimmy Gregerson, and all the members really stepped in to fill in the gaps. The band did a fantastic job of progressing their sound but still sound like I See Stars (most clearly shown in the single “Mobbin’ Out”), which is something a lot of bands have been failing at lately. They have perfectly showcased the sound they were reaching for in songs such as “Calm Snow” and “Everyone’s Safe In The Treehouse,” proving the band really went all out on this record. Fans of old I See Stars may be skeptical of Treehouse at first given that it’s less shredding and more pop, but if you give it a chance, you’ll realize I See Stars really has something special with this release.

With a sound that’s reminiscent of Dance Gavin Dance and A Lot Like Birds, fans of more progressive sounding music will definitely find something to like and possibly fall in love with about Hail The Sun‘s new record Culture Scars.
Queens, New York band Sylar opened the show at Webster Hall for Beartooth‘s album release show and definitely got the crowd amped with their rap-infused vocals and heavy instrumentals. Being locals to the New York scene, Sylar were definitely an amazing choice to open the night. Their I-don’t-give-a-fuck (clearly from New York) attitude was a huge hit with the audience.
