MILLOY More Than A Machine

THE CAVALCADE

BASEMENT I Wish I Could Stay Here

 

The hate has always flowed heavily for Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke, with critics targeting his off-stage actions as frequently as his glam/metalcore/whatever hybrid’s recorded output. On Fashionably Late however, Radke has delivered a record that is so rooted in egotistical grandstanding and musical mediocrity that for once, he’ll be judged on that and that alone. From the album’s artwork through to the rehashed metal riffs, cheesy electro numbers (seriously, “Bad Girls Club”) and woe is me lyrics, Fashionably Late is already well on its way to a creative hell. Throw in Radke’s insistence on rapping (so poorly that he makes 360 seem like a visionary in comparison) and you’re left with a disc that doesn’t just border on embarrassing, it practically redefines the term.

On their second EP, Novocastrian quartet The Cavalcade continue to throw shapes in the long shadows cast by their heroes. That's not to dismiss it entirely, of course: their blend of Rise-ready post-hardcore and heavy, melodic rock is certainly endearing; if just a little indebted. Comparisons to acts like Closure In Moscow and The Mission In Motion come as early as the opening track, highlight “Sleepwalker In Disguise.” They showcase vocals with some serious muscle, as well as a clever, proficient use of keys and piano. That said, it never evolves beyond the sincerest form of flattery, and the dynamics and structure of each song become far too similar as the EP progresses. This EP suggests greater things ahead; but, as it currently stands, the band are merely a work in progress.

Fire up the Delorean, it’s time to travel all the way back in town to that heady era when the second wave of Fueled By Ramen was clogging high school girls’ ipods… so 2006. This Century are so squeaky clean they make Justin Bieber look like Glen Benton and Good Charlotte like Behemoth. Inoffensive electro pop is the order of the day, evoking images of letterman jackets, American campus coffee shops and getting zany in a soft-top sports utility on the way to the mall to shop at American Eagle. Lead single “Slow Dance Night” is the pick of the bunch, perhaps worth a spin if you’ve worn out the replay button on “Get Lucky” waiting for the new Daft Punk to leak. The only reason I is because the singer can surmise this is in has a nose ring. Punx?

Sadly, those who feared that Frank Turner’s recent commercial success would see him grow up and start putting out lukewarm records are proven right on Tape Deck Heart. There are some pretty good moments, such as two songs you would’ve seen him play last time he was here: “Recovery” and the rollicking ode to punk rock gigs that is “Four Simple Words”. There are at least eight triumphs on prior album England Keep My Bones; there’s not one song anywhere as good as, say, “I Still Believe” here, and there are some of the weakest songs Frank Turner has written (tell us that the chorus from “The Way I Tend To Be” wasn’t cadged from a Taylor Swift song...) And what’s with the sudden obsession with the mandolin? We’re massive fans of Frank’s, and that makes this disc even harder to take.

ZZZSOUNDS / NICK VAN BREDA Split

Tenzenmen

Those with an eye for detail would know that Nick Van Breda and Dave Drayton have shared more than a few musical adventures over the years across a range of different styles. So with Drayton recently taking up residence in Van Breda’s basement, it seems the time was right for this prolific local pair to team up for a split, each contributing a single track, both falling firmly into the singer-songwriter realm. Drayton’s offering “Kev” is the more adventurous of the two, daring to jump from a simplified strum to something more complex, while Van Breda’s cut “She Makes His Heart Play Math Rock” explores a more traditional format, softly singing over a less-jagged composition. A quick trawl through the lyric sheet however, reveals each of the tunes is complimentary to CAMERON CHAMBERS the other.

Swiss rockers Krokus return with their first new album since 2010's Hoodoo, with guitarist Mandy Meyer returning to the line-up (Meyer had played in the band in the ‘80s and then filled in for an ailing Fernando von Arb a few years ago). Krokus have long traded in a kind of AC/DC-influenced straightforward hard rock sound, and that’s both their biggest strength and their greatest weakness. On its own merits it’s a fine album, with some great crunchy tones and an ear to the past. But in the context of their catalog it’s more of the same. Sure, the same criticism can be levelled at AC/DC, but in their case it’s a bit more forgivable. When Krokus aren’t defaulting to that same eighthnote drive, they’re instead falling on earlier rock’n’roll clichés – Chuck Berry licks. blues rhythms – and it all PETER HODGSON comes across a little uninspired.

  Black metal hasn’t really changed since it began. Some might say that’s a good thing, but not Swedes Vuyvr, whose debut album is an admirable attempt at reworking the genre. The bulk of their sound is grounded in traditional black metal – aka necessary high-speed tremolos, thunderous blast beats and harsh guttery vocals. Beneath the classic sound however, are elements of groove metal and hardcore, which blend into the mix well, but don’t quite fit the black metal tone. Vuyvr don’t quite capture the atmosphere of the genre, instead they create a sound that’s almost too positive for black metal, one that lacks the foreboding feelings of aggression and doom. The band is tight and the music suitably unrelenting, but their ideas are too muddled to create a real PETER ZALUZNY game changer.

M EDIA CO VERAGE – RADIO & TV

SOUTHERN CROSS AUSTEREO (2DAY NETW ORK) Description:

Major capital city radio network

Music Format:

CHR/Pop/Urban/Dance

Additions:

None

Comments:

The 2Day network rarely adds 'new' songs unless they are from 'core' established artists. MD's at the stations all felt that the song was not best suited – as it is mainly a pop station – although they do play a few Rock tracks (they consider Pop/Rock as Rock. They play all the chart hits, so normally songs that chart jump into the playlist first as we are a chart reflecting station. So does limit the nonchart hits they can add to our playlist. “Slow Dance Night” did get used as part of “Kyle & Jackie O” promo. No spins recorded.

SOUTHERN CROSS AUSTEREO (TRIPLE M) Description:

Major capital city radio network

Music Format:

Rock

Additions:

None

Comments:

MD’s at the station feel the song isn’t suited to the ‘Rock’ genre. No spins recorded.

SOUTHERN CROSS AUSTEREO (SEA FM/HOT FM/STAR FM) Description:

Major regional radio network affiliated with the Today & MMM network.

Music Format:

CHR/Pop/Urban/Dance

Additions:

None

Comments:

Support will depend on 2Day’s reaction to the song - as we did not succeed at the Network, we cannot succeed here either. No spins recorded.

DMG RADIO (NOVA) Description:

Major capital city CHR/POP radio network

Music Format:

CHR/Pop/Urban/Dance

Additions:

None

Comments:

The Nova Network have changed their format to pure 'pop' and 'urban pop' so we will not see any support in the coming weeks. Unless the 2Day network played this single and strong support was given - an addition is not likely at all. No spins recorded.

THIS CENTURY ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'BIOGRAPHY OF HEARTBREAK' OUT MAY 31 (AU-NZ) New Single 'Slow Dance Night' Available on iTunes! Phoenix, Arizona’s THIS CENTURY will release their new full-length album, ‘Biography Of Heartbreak’ on May 31, 2013 in Australia and New Zealand via Rude Records. THIS CENTURY formed in 2007, with members Joel Kanitz (vocals), Sean Silverman (guitar), Ryan Gose (drums), and Alex Silverman (bass), and has quickly become one of the more exciting pop/rock bands to enter the scene. Their unique combination of anthem pop and a die hard grassroots fan base has led them to extensive tour dates with the likes of Good Charlotte, The Maine, The Ready Set, Breathe Carolina, Hey Monday and many others. The band has most recently seen a large rise in popularity in Southeast Asia, where their songs “Sound of Fire”, “Everywhere, Everything”, and “Bleach Blonde” have all reached #1 on top 40 radio formats and continue to receive consistent radio attention. THIS CENTURY enlisted Colby Wedgeworth (The Maine, Lydia, Lincoln Brewster) to produce their second forthcoming release, which features 13 tracks including “Bleach Blonde”, “Skeletons” as well as their brand new single “Slow Dance Night”. Fans can watch the music video for the new single on YouTube at (http://youtu.be/JY0hYe1xuUY) or download the single on iTunes at (https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/slowdance-night-single/id643065589).
