Jets Overhead – Boredom and Joys

2/5 The Canadian Indie band Jets Overhead released their third studio album Boredom and Joys. The longplayer is full of quite relaxing sounds and melodic instrumental plays. The first first song which has the same title as the album, sounds like a ode to freedom. Lead singer Adam Kittredge said to Rolling Stone: "As a boy I remember being thrilled when I threw a twig in the creek near my house and watched i ...

David Usher – Songs From The Last Day On Earth

3/5 Songs From The Last Day On Earth is a pleasant album of mellow rock from David Usher. The 12 track album, released on Maple Music Recordings, is the eighth solo release for this Montreal based artist. The first single from the album was released in both French with Partir Ailleurs and an English version, Rice Paper, simultaneously. Rice Paper is a upbeat track with acoustic guitars and gentle drums, as ...

Three Days Grace – Transit of Venus

2/5 Canada’s own Three Days Grace has carved out a solid place in the Canadian and International post-grunge rock scene. So it is interesting that half of the tracks of their fourth album, Transit of Venus, are swollen with wailing guitar solos and thumping drum-driven choruses that are reminiscent of the big hair rock of the late Eighties. Three Days Grace‘s performance is inconsistent throughout the thirt ...

Papa Roach – The Connection

4/5 The Connection is the eighth album for California based rockers Papa Roach. Over the past 12 years, this four piece have honed their craft and it shows on this album which is packed full of tight metal tracks with rap and electronic injections. Still Swinging is a powerful launch into the album, the onslaught of sound grabs you by the throat and doesn’t let you take a breath until the fourth and only fr ...

The Sheepdogs – S/T

4/5 The Sheepdogs have got muscle. Their second album to be released since signing to a major label, The Sheepdogs proves that there is substance behind the buzz that’s only been growing since they appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone. The Sheepdogs play Rock ‘n’ Roll pure and true, the kind that earns its capital R’s with the “and” abbreviated twice. Throughout their self-titled album, they manage to con ...

DiRTY RADiO – Cassette

3/5 It’s getting dirty on the radio again. The Canadian trio Dirty Radio releases its new long-player Cassette. And this one starts with a Holiday and ends Lost at sea. And even if you sometimes really drift away by hearing this album it always comes along with a good feeling where you don’t want to miss too much. It is an album where you probably do not skip any song because it is just a good overall conce ...

Kottonmouth Kings – Mile High

1/5 Did Kottonmouth Kings just discover dubstep? Kottonmouth Kings pay lip service to bass worship by sprinkling the wubs throughout Mile High. They also mix in little bits of every other genre that caught the attention of their weed-marinated brains. Mile High mixes west-coast rap, punk, dubstep, reggae, trap, pop, and strains of the mainstream, however not once on the album are these sounds integrated int ...

Jesse Labelle -Two

4/5 After two years of performances and media appearances Jesse Labelle releases his second album named Two. His first single Heartbreak Cover-up was already successful, reaching #2 on the Emerging Canadian Artist charts and in its first week and is already in the top 20 on the AC and Hot AC charts. These facts let arise some expectations. This album is very emotional and full of far-reaching lyrics. It see ...

Serj Tankian – Harakiri

3/5 One of the most striking voices in the alternative metal genre is back: Serj Tankian released his third solo project . Moreover it comes along more rocking, tougher and with more double bass and warped guitar than the previous longplayers. And the third album is certainly the one which reminds the most of System of a down. While the previous two solo projects were very experimental Serj Tankian falls ba ...

Hawthorne Heights – Hope

2/5 Melodrama much? It’s not really screamo, not entirely pop-rock, not vanilla emo; what Hope comes across as is annoyingly whinging. Hawthorne Heights have had an eventful career that spans four full albums. Hope is their most recent EP and the second in a planned trilogy of EPs that began with Hate. But really, it’s hard to even imagine that trilogy being completed given the amount of ennui and seeming j ...
