In this Review Round-Up, there’s a greater focus on the poppier side of things, with One Armed Joey’s pop-punk hitting above pop-rock from Hey Thanks!, and indie-pop from Jukebox The Ghost.
Going back to a tighter and more energised form, State Champs still aren’t at their absolute best, but have the pop-punk punch to fly high regardless.
It might be just another Simple Plan album, but their newest remains as bright and punchy as the pop-punk veterans have always been, even if they still aren’t showing much in the way of progress or growth.

Bowling For Soup’s newest album falls right in line with their usual level of quality, not raising the bar at all but acting as another helping of their crowd-pleasing pop-punk.
In this Review Round-Up, there’s an all-around solid crop of releases as Kublai Khan TX deliver a punishing EP, Walt Disco and Gen And The Degenerates show a lot of promise, and Reminders hit a high mark on their debut album.

Take a look at what we’ve been listening to throughout February in this edition of The Soundboard Stereo, ft. Dave, Fefe Dobson, Jimmy Eat World, Circa Waves, Billy Talent and We Are The In Crowd.
In this Review Round-Up, Bad Omens newest metalcore venture proves less than favourable, alongside exemplary emo from Broken Field Runner, and promising output in pop-punk from downcast and pop from Alfie Neale.
