We All Fall Down

An Album By

Christ's Sake

Review by

California punk has a very distinctive sound — whether it be the skate punk, pop punk, or hardcore punk, you can tell it is a California band. Christ’s Sake is no different, embodying its fast roots (like “By His Blood”) or surf-pop song (like “You Are”). This band is undoubtedly West Coast. Thematically, it doesn’t stay away from much, taking on judgmental Christians, sex trafficking, addiction, while still singing of God’s love and skateboarding. It’s an odd-yet-flawless flow, with in-your-face lyrics backed by some great punk music and solid guitar solos. (I could have done without the ballad, “What Have I Done.”) This record makes me want to dance around in one song and then slam dance in the next. Despite low production quality, I want to listen to this again and again. It’s got that intangible something that draws you back for another listen.

Quite The Undertaking

Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
