Pussy Stench – Honey Sucker

August 8, 2018 Justin Bruce 0

7/10 Pussy Stench are a Montreal, QC punk band with their latest release Honey Sucker. If you’re riding the new wave of grunge, this release should have enough muddy guitar riffs and angsty lyrics to […]

Madball - For The Cause

Madball – For the Cause

June 14, 2018 Jason Greenberg 0

 8/10 “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” is a sentiment that is constantly lost on a lot of bands. The never-ending pursuit of the perfect sound is a plague that has made and broken […]

Stick Around – In This Life

Stick Around – In This Life

7.5/10 Somewhere between after-party shenanigans and Monday morning commutes sits Winnipeg’s Stick Around – a band who is decidedly too mature for pop-punk labels, even if they listened to all the cool So-Cal bands in […]
