Summary:

While Revolt focused a little more on a rhythmic sound than Resist, both play off each other well and sound more like two halves of an album instead of two EPs released a year apart.

Hundredth has a great sense of timing on their latest EP, Resist. Tracks will go at a feverish pace through sections of each song, before suddenly dropping off to give listeners a chance to absorb what they’ve heard. The rhythm section sets the pace and direction for the record, while the lead weaves in and out with soaring melodies and a wonderful harmonious compliment with Chadwick Johnson’s vocals layered over top. Resist is the follow up to Hundredth’s EP, Revolt, and Resist continues from where it left off. While Revolt focused a little more on a rhythmic sound than Resist, both play off each other well and sound more like two halves of an album instead of two EPs released a year apart.

The standout on Resist is “Demons” with its back and forth between the lead and rhythm throughout the track. (The lyrics focus on the struggle with personal demons and temptations.) Resist ends with one of the coolest instrumentals I’ve heard in a long time, a speech by S. Brian Willson. It starts out the track, similar to “Barren” on the Revolt EP, while the band plays the speech out, ending the EP with a beautifully haunting and simple melody.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
