Review: Attic by The Fem Doms

femdoms

I’ve never wanted to go out and shout out a band’s name more than I have with this one. On December 31st of 2016, rock band The Fem Doms released Attic, a three song EP that has enough meat in it to make you feel like you’re listening to a full album. I found myself head banging to each and every tune, and feeling the energy in the vocals.
Each song is unique to it’s own. The first song, “Monolith” is very eerie feeling from the get go, beginning with just the drums. The second track “Dysania” is very much conveys the feeling of the titles meaning, finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning. The guitar and drums just flow together on this one. The concluding track “Dropped” has a slightly happier tone to me than the other tracks, and I found it extremely catchy. I found myself humming this as I got some errands done. The guitar work on this one also blew me away . Overall, I’ll definitely be looking forward to the day they come out to California. You can buy Attic on their bandcamp or stream it for free on their soundcloud.

Anchors & Atlases – Self Titled EP

Anchors & Atlases - Self Titled EP

Anchors & Atlases is a pop punk/alternative band from Western Massachusetts. The band takes much influence in their pop punk/alternative style from other artists such as All Time Low, Mayday Parade, and The Maine. Recently Anchors & Atlases released a 6 track EP. The EP starts off with a beautiful instrumental track, followed by an upbeat love song. Track 3 “Of All Gin Joints” starts off slowly and the instruments flow evenly through the song. Track 4 “Across State Lines” is perfect for anyone dealing with the struggle of being in a long distance relationship, wether it be a significant other or a family member. As we all know music pushes us all through the hard times. Track 5 “Puzzle Piece(Perfect Fit)” has great harmonies mixed with the perfect instrumentals. Lastly Track 6 “North Star” is a more stripped down acoustic song, as most of our readers know I’m a sucker for a good acoustic jam, so this song is my favorite off of the EP.

Along For The Ride – Rookie Of The Year

Along For The Ride - Rookie Of The Year

Rookie Of The Year is an acoustic-pop band from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Singer/songwriter Ryan Dunson is the only official member of the band, but ROTY also consists of live members with a lineup that changes every so often. The band’s second EP titled “Along For The Ride” was released on January 11th, 2012. Here is a track-by-track breakdown of the newest music from Rookie Of The Year:

1.) Chase – great opening track, it is fast-paced and fun
2.) Light Years Away – the vocals are really nice, the song has a sweet and slower feel to it, there was a nice instrumental bridge towards the end
3.) Dallas – the intro and outro to this song are great, the standout lyrics for me are “you’re my only drug, girl; take too much and you’ll die in love”, it is a slow, sad song about love and loss, I feel like it would be a great track to see a live performance of
4.) Silent Words – this is a beautifully simple interlude, I love the use of piano that fades into guitar that then fades into strings, it’s a sweet blend of instruments and sound
5.) Tonight – this song paints a really good picture of heartbreak, the lyrics are pretty catchy, this was my favorite song off of the EP
6.) Diamond Lights – this is a piano driven song, the vocals are sweet and soft, the lyrics that most caught my attention were “find your way out, let light back in”
7.) Runaway – It has a lovely feel, the difference in the way the guitar is played is fabulous, it is a fun, hopeful love track, it definitely connects with the teenager inside of me
8.) Don’t Tear Me Apart – this track is a bit different from the rest of the EP, the vocals sound different yet intriguing.
9.) Light Years Away (Full Band) – adding more instruments to this song definitely gave it a whole different feel, I believe that it takes away the rawness and honesty of the acoustic version and the instruments tend overpower the vocals, especially during the chorus. I guess you could saw I’m a sucker for an acoustic song.
