Did somebody say "party"? No? Well, Andrew W.K. definitely did. For example, the lyrics of the first song, "The Power of Partying", is composed of only the word "partying." What this album lacks in seriousness it makes up with feel good vibes and music. Andrew W.K. is genuinely a fun guy who oozes positivity and this album similarly reflects the creator's personality.

If you like garage punk with rough edges and heavy guitars, this album is for you. The cover art, the intruments, and the singers have a raw unflitered vibe. The song lyrics are mostly about drugs and fast paced living with occasional odes to previous stars. The singer yells every word, the guitars are slamming from beginning to end, and most songs are under 3 minutes long.

Kate Nash
Label: 
Girl Gang Records

If you’ve been following Kate Nash for a while (like I have), you’ll probably have a good idea of how her music has changed since she hit the charts with “Foundations” back in 2007. Indeed, her last effort – 2013’s Girl Talk – was almost a complete departure from her earlier work, an album with heavy punk and riot grrrl influences that sounded quite different from the cutesy, piano-based songs of her debut, Made of Bricks.

With Minor Tantrums, Lifted Bells have given us a solid emo album with decent math additions - there is not much else to say. I've listened to a lot of emo in my time, and this is another one - Bob Nanna does the vocals, who has worked on a various amount of other emo albums, so I would say knows how to...emo? My friend and I were discussing this, and we both agreed that math rock sort of hits a wall at a certain point. After a while, it all sort of sounds the same and it really takes something to make it standout.
