California or Bust

An Album By

False Idle

Review by

False Idle’s California or Bust EP is a collection of acoustic versions of previously released songs by the band. (They come from a combination of the band’s I Refuse EP and their debut full-length album, Threat.) Hailing from Boise, Idaho, the Thumper Punk Records band, fronted by lead vocalist Sef Idle, has produced exceptional acoustic versions of several of his full band’s songs. As with any music, toning down the original to an acoustic version can be a bit of a challenge, but False Idle has managed to recreate its own songs into quiet-yet-upbeat treasures that still pack a punch. Notable tracks include “I Refuse,” “Retaliate,” “Threat” and “Where Do We Go.”

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.
