Daylight - Jar
Transitioning from angsty punk jams to mature emotional post-indie-whatever the fuck reverb rape fests are happening way too much. Dudes born in the 90's with little to no recollection of the grunge era are force feeding us all a hipster interpretation fueled by bands like Sunny Day Real Estate. I have seen an alarming increase in long haired, unbuttoned flannel wearing scrubs showing up at shows and I can see the writing on the wall. I've gone a full two paragraphs without really mentioning anything about "Jar", but I'm more concerned about putting out the grease fire (grunge punk) before it grows and burns down the house (the music scene). I'm confident that most "punk" music these days is fucking terrible, it just is. Many won't agree, and those that don't are all entitled to their opinion. Just know that you're wrong.
Anyhow, this album can simply be summed up as radio friendly rock that's played by Pop Punk dudes. The production is ultra polished, the vocals are frequently doubled and ultra clean, you get the idea. I'd imagine any music video released for the album would look like a crappy VHS tape with over saturated colors and crazy light leakage, basically any Instagram filter. Anybody that actually enjoys this album and others of the sort, I kindly invite you to share the reasoning of the dark side. Jar is out now via Run For Cover Records.

Also, I hope that SDRE comment wasn't a knock on them because they ruled.
Also, in before "reviewing the reviews blah blah blah".
I somehow like the record and the review at the same time which probably doesn't make any sense

It's all good. How's your new album doing?
somebody literally just reviewed it here, apparently it sounds like Converge and Frodus and Fugazi. I'm confused by the combo
