T3M Album Review: Hostage Calm- Die On Stage

The Connecticut quintet is back at it again with their new effort, Die On Stage. The new record brings a breath of fresh air to the current state of the scene. In a time where Emo is all the rage, (to the point where people are worried about how many fictitious ‘points’ they’ve incurred in a Facebook group dedicated to real Emo), it’s refreshing to hear a record like this. Hostage Calm manages to blend pop songwriting much like that of Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen with punk roots, creating an entirely original and genre-spanning sound.

T3M Artist of the Week: The Fossil Youth

The Fossil Youth are a pop-punk band from Oklahoma. I know what you’re thinking, they’re pop-punk so they must be like every other band in the genre. WRONG. Wanna know the main difference between The Fossil Youth and most of the pop-punk market? They’re actually a great band. They haven’t pigeonholed themselves into the genre and have hints of many other styles to branch out from. Check out their full length album titled “Empty Handed, Heavy Hearted” streaming on the side of page or on their bandcamp page!

T3M Album Review: Alvvays- Alvvays

The love longs that you’re not sure if they are love songs but still stick in your head because you can relate to them. The chill indie drums that you cant seem to shake. For fans of the beach fossil or if you have every wanted to hear a more exciting version of best coast, listen up. There are some catchy tunes out there that I swear will have you humming later on.

Alvvays, pronounced [All-vays], is a newly popular, indie-surf pop, band fetching from Toronto, Ontario. This five piece band stared in 2012 with: Molly Rankin(Vocals), Kerri Maclellan (Keys), Alec O’Hanley (Guitar), Brian Murphy (Bass & Didgeridoo), Phil Maclssac (Drums). Can you believe that? They have a didgeridoo! Prior to Murphy and Maclssac, the three piece worked together on Rankins’ EP that released in 2010. After playing to this past years SXSW, Alvvays was signed to Polyvinyl Record. Most recently, after only a month and a half, Alvvays self titled reached #1 on college charts on Aug 5.

T3M Artist of the Week: Lions

Lions is one of those bands that I casually listened to the few songs I knew and was content until I saw them live. Their musicianship is top notch and they’re even better people. These guys immediately went towards the top of my list of bands to watch for the future. If you haven’t listened to these guys yet, check out their Ep “MTNZ” streaming on the side of our page or on their bandcamp!

FFO: This Town Needs Guns, Circa Survive, A Great Big Pile Of Leaves

The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die - Between Bodies pre-orders up now! Brooklyn Vegan streaming new track!”Between Bodies finds the indie collective simultaneously reaching the most quintessential version of their cinematic, twilit sound while challenging both themselves and the listener. The album pairs compelling, impressionist post-rock landscape with narratives of love, death, existentialism and the human condition. Yet despite the experimental nature of the EP, The World Is a Beautiful Place has managed to craft what is likely their most melodic, infectious work thus far. Between Bodies presents a fascinating snapshot of one of the most creative bands currently writing music, unafraid to push against boundaries in their inspired explorations. - Chad Jewett, Half Cloth”

Check out the new animated music video for ‘The Shaking of Leaves’ via NPR Music here: http://n.pr/1xb0XIR
Over a year in the making, John Komar (the director) and I had been going back and forth perfecting this video for quite some time. The initial storyboard had gone through multiple changes and ideas until we landed on the final theme. The most difficult part was coming up with something for the bridge section of the song — conveying the lyrics (about a very serious and sensitive topic) while still giving the story an optimistic outcome. This song was written for my fallen friend Mitch Dubey. The video was designed and written with him in mind. I think he would have loved it..

Evan never fails to amaze. An incredible video written for an incredible person.

T3M Single Review: Lume- Now and Then

Lume isn’t new to the music scene. Dan Butler (guitar, vocals) has played an active role in the Chicago underground with A Living Portrait, while Dylan and Austin Hulett (bass and drums, respectively) have been playing in bands in the Port Huron area for years now. Despite their experience, never have their past efforts seemed as concise as Lume. The Chicago three-piece sets out to send the listener into a swirl of fuzz and reverb with “Now and Then,” their new single from an upcoming cassette release. The guitar intro instantly pulls the listener into Lume’s world of sonic bliss, as Butler’s vocals start to waver in-and-out of the air, creating a layered and textured performance. Butler opens the track: “Long waves, the finest of days, I won’t come around either way. Ears bend with my oldest friend. She’ll get tired of me now and then.” As the drums crack the barrier, a definite Cloakroom vibe is detected. The verse comes at you with an Archers of Loaf delivery and a Title Fight execution. The dreamy soundscape comes flooding back in on the chorus and makes for a very dense, lush sound. “Now and Then” is a perfect representation of Lume’s skill and ability. I’ve had the pleasure of playing with them when they toured through Detroit and their musicianship is astounding. Masterful skill, quality gear, and overall nice attitudes make Lume one of the best bands in the scene right now. If you’re in the Chicago area, Lume will be playing with Cloakroom, Darto, and Carbonleak at the Fireside Bowl this Tuesday.
