Hi there, I’m back with another monthly rewind post! I literally, and I mean just literally, got back from my trip to Japan today. Anyway here’s what I’ve had on repeat in April…
1. PUP — Kids
Ok, I know what you’re thinking…PUP?! AGAIN?! Yes. PUP. Again. In my last monthly rewind post, I mentioned that PUP would be releasing a new album and BOY OH BOY did they deliver. I am obsessed with their newest album, Morbid Stuff, and you should be too.
2. worlds greatest dad — asshole song
I discovered worlds greatest dad a couple months ago when someone told me to check them out after I had tweeted about how excited I was about a tour headlined by another band they were opening for. I needed someone music to download to my phone for an upcoming flight and I am so glad that their latest album, get well soon, was one of them. Right now they’re on tour with Tiny Moving Parts and Free Throw. They aren’t making a stop in Philadelphia this time around, but you can check out a list of their other upcoming tour dates here.
3. Oso Oso — The Plant Mouth
Not to be dramatic, but I don’t think Oso Oso has ever put out a bad song? This is an oldie but goodie I’ve been listening to a lot lately from Long Island emo band Oso Oso that’ll hit you in the feels. Every. Single. Time. They’re currently on a stacked tour ft. Citizen, Knuckle Puck, and Hunny. Catch them in Philadelphia at Union Transfer on May 16.
4/5. Bad Bad Hats — Midway AND Things We Never Say
Two songs from the same band?! Yes. I discovered Bad Bad Hats while they were opening for The Front Bottoms back in 2017 and recently I’ve been listening to these two songs pretty much nonstop, so I just couldn’t pick one. Both of these songs are off of their first LP, Psych Reader, which came out waaay back in 2015. I know it’s been four years since it came out, but it’s still a good album. They just dropped a new EP called Wide Right and will be hitting The Saint in Asbury Park on May 14.
6. Belmont — 731
7. Wallows — Are You Bored Yet? (ft. Clairo)
This is totally random, but I’m pretty sure I found out about Wallows through some kind of ad? And I want to say it was on Twitter? And I saw it and I was like oh shit that guy from 13 Reasons Why is in a baaaaaand?!?!
Anyway, I was curious so I looked them up and I’m glad I did. They just so happen to have recently released their debut album, Nothing Happens. Funny enough, the ad that I saw a couple months ago when I first heard about them was advertising their upcoming show in Philadelphia at Union Transfer on May 6.
