“Good Times” by All Time Low | Music Video Review

 

As a bisexual Jewish girl I know what it means to be a minority. It is unbelievably hard to be looked down on by others including our own president. It’s disgusting that people see people who are “different” as a problem. What is even worse is that our own president sees it as a problem. It is important that people who are considered “different” stick together and fight against all the hate that is in this world. No one should ever feel like being different is a problem. Love is love whether it is between a man and a woman, a woman and woman, a black man and a white woman or anything in between. We shouldn’t be discriminating anymore and it is sad to see we as a nation are not past that.

That all being said, when my favorite band of all times, All Time Low released their newest video for “Good Times” I was completely in shock in the best way. The music video brought light to all these issues that are so important right now. They hit racism, homophobic behavior and so much more all in one video. To say I didn’t tear up by it would be a lie. For someone like me the importance of this video is even stronger considering my background. Unfortunately, we live in this world filled with hate. Luckily, I know I always have music to turn to when I need to ease the pain of watching hate take over love. With that being said, I still never expected to see such a powerful music video from a band that has made such an impact on my life. I can’t turn on the news without seeing one story after the next with the most upsetting headlines. It is important now more than ever that bands reach out to the next generation of leaders and teach them what is important in this world. The current fan base of All Time Low consists of a lot of those future leaders, so a music video like the one they just released is exactly what we need to shape our future generation, and help rid the world of the hate. Thank you so much All Time Low for the extremely impactful video. There is no other rating to give this video other than 10 out of 10.

Review of “Illuminate Me” by Bad Cop

badcop

Illuminate Me by Bad Cop has this retro feel with the singers vocals and the instruments behind the vocals make you want to get up and dance. The first thing you hear is a great beat and a very memorable guitar melody through out the song. The lyrics are original and unique, you’ll find yourself singing along in the chorus. You could jam out to this song  in our car without a doubt. This makes the song unique because the instruments give the song energy and the vocals give it that relaxing vibe. The vocals and instruments play on each other instead of against each other which is a very good thing. All components of this song fit well together and compliment each other.

Review: Attic by The Fem Doms

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.

Review : America by The New Tarot

My first thought of America by The New Tarot was that the melody of the instruments are very calming and peaceful. This song makes you want to close your eyes and just listen. The harmonies are pretty spot on and make the song have more layers which I really liked. The lyrics are very truthful and real but I felt that they could of gone more in depth with the lyrics. This is something I usually wouldn’t listen to but this song caught my ear with it’s calming instruments as well as the harmonies going on through out the song.

Interview w/ Jeremy of Shatterproof

 

I had the amazing opportunity to interview Jeremy from Shatterproof and this is what he had to say.

1. Where did you guys get the name shatterproof and what does it mean?

The name Shatterproof started as just a cool sounding name that we came up with randomly but it has grown to hold a much deeper meaning. To be shatterproof is to be unbreakable which can be applied to everyone’s life since we all experience our own struggles through life. It is the thought that when you get knocked down, you get right back up.

2. Which song means the most to you and why?

We love all of our songs but “Cookie Cutter Life” is an anthem that we all stand behind the chorus lyrics “Scream with me if you’re lost, at least you know that you’re not lost alone” is a powerful message that we are all are trying to figure out our path and it can be hard to know how to guide your future but it’s okay to be lost because you are not alone, and you will find your purpose in life.

3. How would you describe your sound to new fans?

Our sound ranges a wide variety from softer to heavier alternative rock featuring violin as a very prominent instrument. Our sound can be thought of as experimental because we pull Influence from a number of genres.

4. What are your preshow rituals?

Our preshow rituals include stretching, vocal warmups and we huddle and say a prayer before we take the stage

5. How many times a week do you practice?

We currently practice 4 days during the week and usually play shows on the weekends if we are not on tour

6. Where can people find you on social media?

People can find us on every platform of social media but our main 3 are Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

We also have a website with an online merch store www.weareshatterproof.com

7. Are there any big things coming soon from Shatterproof?

We are constantly working on new and exciting things. We do not have any release dates or information available yet but we are planning on touring a good amount of 2017.

Now to the silly and fun questions
8. Batman or superman?

Superman

9. What was the last picture you took with your phone?

The last picture I took with my phone was the castle at Disneyland. (I was visiting California for Thanksgiving break)

10. What is your perfect pizza?

The perfect pizza is any pizza because pizza is pizza. Of course no anchovies though haha

11. What’s your favorite Christmas movie?

Elf

12. If you woke up in the body of someone else who would it be and what would you do?

Superman so I could fly around the world

13. What question do you hate to answer?

Least favorite question to answer is “favorite song?” Because it changes constantly.

14. If you had a brainwashing machine who would you use it on?

I would brainwash my old music teacher so they would be surprised by my progress. I think the reaction would be priceless.

Hope you all enjoyed my interview with Jeremy.  Interview by Rachael Cox
