Undoubtedly one of my favorite cd's so far this year is "This Time Next Year" by The Movielife. Though it was technically released late last year, it will surely make my list of this years best albums. Perhaps you haven't heard of this band...neither had I until a few months ago, when I saw the band.
Undoubtedly one of my favorite cd's so far this year is "This Time Next Year" by The Movielife. Though it was technically released late last year, it will surely make my list of this years best albums. Perhaps you haven't heard of this band...neither had I until a few months ago, when I saw the bands name dropped in a Dashboard Confessional interview. From there I checked out some mp3's, and I liked them, so I ordered this hard to find cd from my local (capitalist pigs) HMV store. To me that is one of the great things about to underground punk scene, discovering new bands. One can feel a certain sense of ownership when discovering a new underground punk band, when you discover a new top 40 band, it's not just you discovering them but thousands of others too. Just thought I'd share that tidbit...anyhow back to my review, a clever infusion of pop-punk and hardcore, The Movielife hails from Long Island, New York; home of long island iced tea, and east coast hardcore. Their sound can best be described as a unique infusion of pop punk (or emo-core) and hardcore. The vocals are in the vein of other punk bands but they add hardcore elements in the instrumentation, timing, and at times, the vocals.
