Punk News review

Get in on the post-hardcore, screamo scene before the bands decide to channel their music more melodically, and more "intuitively." One of my friends jested as we sat listening...

Punk News review

Goodtime Boys have always been one of the underdogs at Bridge 9 in my opinion, which doesn't take away from the music they made. They were always decent but were missing something...

Frameworks is a band who has blown us away constantly and Loom will do just that to you. Produced by Jack Shirley, these 11 tracks should be listened from start to finish, then...

Punk News review

I love it when a band comes at you with a bold, daring, zero-fucks-given attitude. Frameworks is just that. With Gainesville churning out pop-punk, indie and emo acts, it's a nice...
