Yellowcard

 

I press play and get lost in the unfamiliar melodies that keep me entranced

Suddenly, en entire evening has passed without me realizing.

But I’ve noticed you too late and you’ll never play another show.

You’re disbanding.

Thanks for the wonderful tunes and

Good luck.

Best Albums/EPs of 2016

I discovered a lot of good music in 2016. So much that I couldn’t even add all of it into my phone. Here are the best albums of 2016:

  1. Air For Free – Relient K

If me listening to this album on a loop for 3 days isn’t enough incentive for you to check it out, then I got nothing more to offer you. Top track: Cat

      2. The Home Inside My Head – Real Friends

POP PUNK PERFECTION. This album is one of the staple albums in my pop punk collection. Some of the songs are so perfect I can’t even explain their perfection. Top Track: Mess

      3. Intertwined (EP) – Dodie

Dodie needs to release a full length album. Stat. Top track: When

      4. Isn’t It Strange? – Lauren Aquilina

Who the hell broke Lauren’s heart?? Because so many of the songs on this album are super sad. This is a masterpiece to be honest, and it’s unfortunate that this is both her first and last album. Top Track: Way Too Good

      5. Holy Ghost – Modern Baseball

If you’re into The Front Bottoms, then you’ll be very into Modern Baseball. Top Track: Note to Self

      6. I like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it – The 1975

The 1975 completely changed their style and it turned out for the better. There’s not a single song I don’t LOVE on this album. Top Track: Somebody Else

      7. Bry – Bry

Oh shit. Tall Irish YouTuber made a fantastic album? Do yourself a favour and check this album out, because it is an acoustic master piece. Top Track: You’re Alright

      8. Death of a Bachelor – Panic! At the Disco

This album wasn’t stellar, but it had many great tracks on it. Brendan Urie basically recorded everything himself which proves he is a man of immense talent. Also, his voice spans 5 (6?) octaves. Top Track: L.A. Devotee

     9. Beautiful Lies – Birdy

Who broke your heart Birdy?

Every single track on this album is huantingly beautiful, and many of them reference a relationship that didn’t end so well. However, many of her songs have the same type of melody, so it does get boring after a few listens. Top Track: Wild Horses

     10. Halloway (EP) – Tessa Violet

She is amazing. Tessa Violet has phenomenal songwriting skills. This EP is one of the greatest things I’ve heard this year. Top Track: Dream
