7 incredible tracks you need in your life – October 2016

It’s that time again, folks: it’s the end of the month, and time I rounded up the best tracks put out over the past few weeks.  With no further ado, let’s get on with the show!

Descendents – Feel This

If you’re after a minute long punk rock punch in the face, this is the track for you.  Descendents may be the honorary Dads of the punk rock world, but they’re still going strong as a band.

Cover Your Tracks – Cages

To me, the sound of this track reminds me of Bring Me The Horizon’s latest album, and that’s no bad thing.  I like how the piano and electronic elements work with the track, and whilst I’ve never listened to Cover Your Tracks before, this track has left me wanting to find out more.

Moose Blood – Cheek

Punk rockers Moose Blood have released the video for Cheek, a track from their popular second full length record, Blush.  This is a cute track with an uplifting catchy chorus.

Palisades – Aggression

Even though Palisades have been around for a few years, I’ve not listened to a lot of their music.  This track shows great promise, and I’ll be looking out for their third album due out in January.

Franz Ferdinand – Demagogue

As part of the 30 Songs 30 Days Challenge, indie rockers Franz Ferdinand have put together a little track which essentially is a two and a half minute long middle finger aimed straight at Donald Trump.  What else could you need?

Bloc Party – Stunt Queen

Bloc Party’s latest single is a fantastic, feel-good song, which really puts me in a summery mindset.  Too bad it was released in October really.

Korn – Everything Falls Apart

Korn recently released their twelfth studio album: Everything Falls Apart is one of the singles from the record, which shows the band have grown and matured whilst still maintaining their original attitude.

What do you think of these tracks? Are there any singles I missed off this list? Let me know on my Facebook or Twitter page, or in the comment section below this post.

News: Radio 1 Rock All Dayer takes over the airwaves

Today, the usually pop-oriented BBC Radio 1 have been taken over by rock and alternative music.  So far Twin Atlantic joined Nick Grimshaw on the breakfast show, blink-182 played an acoustic set in the Live Lounge with Clara Amfo, All Time Low hung out with Scott Mills, and Neck Deep were due to join Greg James on the air from 5pm.

This evening Daniel P Carter’s rock show will be joined by co-host Annie Mac and taken over by seven bands performing live sets.  The show is set to be absolutely fantastic; check out the line-up:

7pm – Moose Blood

7:25pm – Against The Current

7:45pm – blink-182

8:05pm – A Day To Remember

8:40pm – Creeper

9:05pm – Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

9:35pm – Asking Alexandria

The line-up is pretty diverse, ranging from pop-punk to post-hardcore to punk and plenty in between.  I’m personally most excited to hear from Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, an absolutely brilliant band I have yet to hear perform their debut album, Blossom, live.  Coming a close second in terms of excitement is A Day To Remember: I absolutely love their new tracks Paranoid and Bad Vibrations, so I’m hoping they perform both of those songs.  It will also be interesting to hear blink-182 perform live without previous member Tom Delonge.

I always enjoy when Radio 1 put on days like this, which showcase the best of alternative music to a more mainstream audience. If only they happened more often!

What’s been your highlight of the Radio 1 Rock All Dayer so far? What bands are you most excited to hear tonight? Let me know on Facebook or Twitter.
