My Favourite songs of the week

This week has a busy with listening to music for up and coming project i’m involved in with a old friend from college. The list have music for punk rock to pop, so that get this list started;

Greetings from California – The Madden Brothers (albums)

From the brothers from good charlotte comes a side project to exploder different style of music. The album as two sides this decried the different from the two;

The first filled with upbeat, sunny pop rock produced by their long-time collaborator Eric Valentine, who also produced Good Charlotte’s The Young and the Hopeless and The Chronicles of Life and Death. Side two is produced by Joe Chiccarelli, wherein “the Maddens’ radiant sibling harmonies are again front and center on songs like ‘California Rain’ and ‘Brother,’ but the music is more earthy, with a warm blend of folk, southern rock, and ’70s-era FM pop. (wikipedia, 2014) 

You should really check this ablum if your a good charlotte fan because it shows a different side of the maddens brothers. Here a link to the album;

Fall Out Boy- Centuries

It their first song to be released after the success of their last album ‘save rock and roll’. It has very similer to their last album but feels bigger and the band plan a early 2015 released of their new album.

Here are links to the song centuries and a interview the band had with zane lowe on radio one:

Fall out boy- centuries 

Zane Lowe interview with fall out boy

Lonely the Brave – Backroads

The Cambridge based band debut with this great song from ‘The Day’s War’ that people really should check out. The big sounding choruses and great use of reverb make them a band to watch.

Lonely the Brave – Backroads

A look at Brighton Dio Royal Blood.


Hey guys sorry haven’t posted anything for a while has been really busy doing other project. But today i just going to give you a short overview of this new up and coming band from brighton if you haven’t heard of them already they are royal blood. They are a two piece band that has just released their debut  album called ‘Royal Blood’.

The band was formed in 2013 in worthing and have supporting Arctic Monkeys and has been nominated for the BBC Sound of 2014. The album has been given great reviews from people and has commented like ‘A light, shade and careful nuance throughout” and “turbo-bastard of a rock record” . Stephen Ackroyd from NME has quoted as saying;

For what feels like eons, anyone with more than a passing interest in rock music – proper rock music – has not-so-quietly been praying for a saviour. A homegrown concern who might have a chance of punching through to prove that Britain can still raise hell. Their faith is rewarded, Royal Blood will save us all.

So if you have time you should check out royal blood their will be a link so you can listen to their new album. But until next time enjoy your week and will be back with my album review on green day american idiot as soon as possible.
