ALICE SWEET ALICE - Circus Maxium - The Modern Bloodshedding
By: Samantha Coomer
Alice Sweet Alice, This band is here to have a good time. The music..... From each drum beat to the guitar licks it was all intertwined together to create this spectacular album. As a new listener I had no expectations. The first song made me alert like wow ok Alice got it going on. So on to the rest of the songs I went. I enjoyed each song. All the lyrics hit home. "Catfish" was funny and probably my favorite. They even have a song with no lyrics that had me moving. The sound is clean and crisp.
The last song is "Time Machine" and I'm not sure if that's meant to be like that because the whole album took me thru a time machine. It was the perfect description for the album. It started with some disco rock then grooved into some The Doors feel music and brought it back up to some 80s pop rock sound. It was fun to bop around and rock at the same time to some sick lyrics.

ANOTHER DAY DAWNS - EP Stranger, due out 1.31.20
My first reaction: Wow! Where have I been? Listening to each drop, the lyrics and guitar riffs made me want to listen again. Another Day Dawns is a new band to me. I had never heard of them prior to listening to the new songs. They are from Pittsburgh and started in 2010.
After listening to the songs the second time I was able to enjoy the music as well the lyrics. I really enjoyed the lyrics; little bit of cursing and a lot of real life feelings. Each song had its own sound not one was alike. I thought it was like a hard Buckcherry, but not. They have an original sound. It also didn't it feel geared towards one person or one sex. Felt like a guy or a girl would enjoy the lyrics or could relate. "Never Okay" stood out the most because hard rock gets the perception of billy badass and that song showed a different side. The lyrics are strong. People hold so much in and this song lets it out. I am now looking forward to seeing a live show to get the full effect. Each song you can tell the band members are having fun. Actually enjoying what they are doing and it comes out in the music.
