Class of 2013: The Soundtrack

Albums are my format of choice. Lucky for me, the artists I follow seem to prefer albums as well. Although that’s not to say there isn’t a place in my life for singles. Every year is packed with individual tracks that catch my attention — whether because they are really good, extremely awful, or...

Class of 2013: The Overachievers

2013 was a great year in music. I’d argue it was among the best in the past 10 years. The diversity among the overachievers was remarkable. Representative artists from hip-hop, pop, rock, metal, hardcore and electronic music all brought their best to the table, but it was those albums that obliterated genre definitions that...

Back in December of last year I threatened to shut down this blog, or give it a break at the very least, and although certain aspects of life have gotten in the way of regular updates, I have somehow found time to keep it alive. I might not go to quite as many shows...

Class of 2011: The Soundtrack

ILSUDH2 still prefers to listen to albums in their entirety, which makes it very hard to put together a list of ‘best tracks’ at the end of each year.  This year was no exception.  Therefore, what follows is a massive soundtrack to the reality show known as 2011.  To say these songs represent the...

Class of 2011: The Overachievers

There were countless releases in 2011 and ILSUDH2 got through over 600 of them.  Although it was very hard to decide what would make the list in this uneven year of music, these are the albums that defined 2011 for this blog. In order to give a clear picture of the past year, this...

The New Wave of Post-Hardcore

The New Wave of Post-Hardcore

Post-hardcore was a short-lived passion of mine. Having discovered Minor Threat and Black Flag slightly too late to be a part of that movement, my generation could be found trying to recreate that scene with bands such as Good Riddance, Strung Out, Lagwagon, NOFX and others. When the old regime did come through town,...

‘trying to smile through gritted teeth’

Fucked Up – David Comes To Life (Matador, 2011) A hardcore concept album concerning a heartbroken factory worker?  An 80 minute album of epic proportions from a band that was known for 7″‘s overflowing with screw-you-in-your-face political punk rock just a few short years ago?  The end, right?  They literally fucked up, right?  What’s...
