RESPIRO NOCIVO – Sbronzi, Rozzi e Zozzi – Review

Ten tracks which speak out and get to the point: alcohol, freedom, revolution and a sound ska punk without wind section. This is “Sbronzi, Rozzi e Zozzi”, a cool title and a good fit to this album by Respiro Nocivo, a band from Vicenza area. This group has been playing a lot lately and I was lucky enough to see them in a live concert, where they prove very good both as musicians and as…

I Like Allie – The Wounds You Leave – Review

I Like Allie – The Wounds You Leave – Review

I didn’t know I Like Allie, but I must say that they were quite a discovery for me. I listened to their EP “The Wounds You Leave” several times and I didn’t expect anything like that in 2016. I’m glad to find out that some people still support the old school. The band was born in Milan in 2006 and in each track you can find their experience and their 90/00’s pop punk/emo influences. I…

ERMES – Ermes – Review

The proposal of Ermes is pretty peculiar, and in their biography they define the band as punk, post-punk, hardcore, post-hardcore, rock. So, to which musical genre they belong to? We can say it’s all about the undefined and general “punk”. Over and above the musical genre, Ermes are “friendship, passion, food and spinach”. These guys from Vezzolacca were born in 2015, and each one boasts past musical experiences I’m not acquainted with, like Topsy The…

Descendents – Hypercaffium Spazzinate – Review

The Descendents had a great influence in the Californian punk rock scene, and “Hypercaffium Spazzinate”, their latest album released on July 29th for Fat Wreck, it’s a clear evidence of that. The album contains 16 tracks for 31 minutes 40 seconds and starts with the melodic “Feel This”, which highlights prof Milo’s beautiful voice and Bill Stevenson’s drums, thus anticipating what we are going to listen to. Karl Alvarez with his bass lines doesn’t get…

THE BOUNCING SOULS – Simplicity – Review

THE BOUNCING SOULS – Simplicity – Review

Here is the tenth album, “Simplicity”, by Bouncing Souls, an historical punk rock band from New Jersey, founded in 1987. The album was anticipated by the single “Writing on the wall”, which already showed that the guys from New Jersey haven’t changed at all… luckily! An album which from the first listening sticks in your mind and never goes away. “Sing along” refrains and a remarkable clearness of sound. Roaring basses and soft acoustic progressions,…
