“I’m hardly ever right, but I’ve never been wrong.”

The warm fuzz wraps around Beach Slang’s A Loud Bash of Teenage Feeling‘s “Spin The Dial.” The new music video has a timeless or vintage feel, but captures contemporary California urban beach vibes.

Life, I suppose, is about really getting alive, about getting after it. I hope this shakes that good feeling into you

Here’s the new music video.

Look out for Beach Slang in Vancouver on April 16 in support of Jimmy Eat World at the Commodore.


The Menzinger’s After The Party is such a great record. My favourite song drifts all over the place. Today it is “Midwestern States.”

The song makes me nostalgic for being broke but in love.

My wife and I don’t have stick and poke tattoos….but yeah, I still feel this.

Most nights we always fall asleep with something dumb on Netflix
Some nights trash reality or kids cartoons or shitty documentaries
Not perfect but we’re good together
Yeah, me, you, and our bad tattoos
Yeah, all our stick and pokes, all our inside jokes
We’ll regret them when we’re dead and sober
But we’re still breathing and the party ain’t over 

Huh…both bands are from Pennsylvania…I didn’t do that on purpose.

Happy Friday. Go with yourself.

Philly punks The Menzingers will release their new record, After The Party, on February 3rd (Epitaph Records).

They sent over their new music video for the lead single “Lookers.”

High-energy and warmly nostalgic, “Lookers” finds the Menzingers paying tribute to their time spent in Asbury Park, weaving in images of smoke-filled diners and Jersey-girl heartbreakers.”

Black and White, live punk footage, tour van.

The Menzingers follow up album to 2014’s Rented World will also include a lot of mile son that tour van. No tour dates in the Pacific Northwest though. I get it….it rains here. I’d stay in California too.

2017 is shaping up to be a good year for rock & roll. So many albums I’m excited to hear as soon as the calendar changes over to January.
