How do you know if you like a record?  If you listen to it a thousand times and it is still as rad as the first time you hear it.  Well that’s the best way to describe this release.  Three songs just over 13 minutes and that make you wanna just put that shit on repeat.  That’s what this record is all about.  Three epic post hardcore songs that hit so close to home, all you can do is say, fuck it lets do it again, I wanna go through this record again and again.  This just could be the best band forever releasing gold after gold.  Or… tears after tears…

Yo.  You should check this out right now.  If you are into getting bummed out like I am, you’ll get stoked on this and then get bummed out again because life is meaningless.   A lot of noodles, a lot of sing alongs.  Dudes can bring it in a basement.  The second track is the jam.

Note to band: Vegansim is Easy! All day everyday.

I’m sure everyone knows this band or has been reading a bunch of well thought out and well written reviews of this record.  This means that I should most likely either A. just link you to another review or B. write as little as possible.  I’ll go with B.

This is the kind of band and the kind of record that you pre order without hearing a song.  I placed that bet and won.  Listen to it and then go listen to their discography and try not to get stoked on life.  I dare you

Wow, Districts and Regret, The Informer doing a split together?  Can I say match made in heaven?  That was exactly what I was thinking when I saw that they were getting together and doing this.  When It was posted I immediately listened to the release over and over again.  I drafted a post and then the worst thing happened!  The Ghost is Clear pulled the full stream.  This sent me into bummer summer mode.  Then two or so months later here we are, full stream ahead.  I am stoked again!

After about a thousand listens to and contemplation I can bring you these results, this split is fucking awesome.

Let us start with Districts, my wonderful girlfriend turned me onto them at around the time I posted the review of their demo some time ago last year.  I fell in love with them, emotional hardcore or whatever you want to call it.  This split offers more insight into the life of the vocalist through venerable introspective lyrics.  The Giver is the jammer on the Districts side, great lyrics to get you pumped on being depressed.

Regret, The Informer is on the flip side of this record and put out equal intense hits as the A side.  Each song pulls us along through a modern take on 90′s emo.  They really have crafted their own style and I give them mad props to that because these songs are just so unique and powerful.  The lyrics stick in my mind like glue and I wanna sing aloud all day, but I can’t because I am not insane.

Buy, Listen, Buy, Listen, Buy.


Book of Caverns – Homes

Band – Book of Caverns (Bandcamp) (Facebook)
Release Title – Homes
Medium – Twelve Inch
Label – (Clue #2)
Style – Post Hardcore

(Stream)(Pre-Order)

Info -

God damn bands from Alberta can you please stop putting out hit after hit?  Well I am not going to complain and you, the reader, already know with out reading this review that this album is fucking awesome.

Book of Caverns is one of my favorite bands right now so I was sure that they couldn’t put out another emotional powerful rager but they prove me wrong with Homes. Go listen to this release on exclaim.ca and wish that it was out now.


Lara Korona – Land Unter

Band – (Website) (Bandcamp) (Facebook)
Release Title – Land Unter
Medium – 12″
Label – Moment of Collapse Records, Pike Records & Bear Records
Style – Post-rock/Metal
From – Germany

(Stream)(Buy)

Info -

Lara Korona isn’t a usual suspect for Every Poets Disease: they play German post-rock. However, with some excellent instrumental breaks, intense vocals (even if I don’t know what they are saying), and interesting musical arrangements Lara Korona is sure to please. This record is a perfectly suited soundtrack for those droning days at work or school where you feel a world apart from the present. The album really progresses with the last two tracks. Lara Korona is on a European tour with the amazing band, Continents. so if you’re in the area, check that out. You’re still in luck if you live in the States though, Moment of Collapse and Bear Records are carrying this album now, so you don’t even have to pay for shipping from Germany! Hop on it.

Style –Post-Hardcore/Screamo
From - Ludwigsburg, Germany

Info -

Yes Yes Yes!  At almost forty minutes long Dialectics a masterpiece brought to you from We Had A Deal.  These german dudes give us an incredibly passionate and artistic album.  They remind me at times of 90s screamo while mixing with modern day post hardcore.  The interludes between some songs really surprised me but they fit perfectly and make the album an instant classic.  Go listen to it and buy it!

CityCop – Seasons

Style – Screamo/Acoustic
From - Ashtabula, Ohio, United States

Info -

Don’t judge a book by a cover, or in my case don’t judge an acoustic band because they are an acoustic band…  When I created the “terms” of bands that I would post for this blog I underlined NO Acoustic bands… I was wrong and I am sorry… So here is my review.

CityCop is a full band acoustic act and by the time you get midway through the second song you cease to know that they are acoustic and know them as a straight up posthardcore/screamo band.  I can’t get beyond that, it is just so great.  This record/band is so unique that you wont be able to forget it.  I think that I could listen to this record on repeat until I died and never get bored of it.  Check it!
