Do you ever wish you could take a step closer to the indie hipster lifestyle? If so, Tim Cohen must have had you at least a little bit in mind while making this album. This album is reminiscent of indie movies and the era of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” Soothing and melancholic sounds echo throughout the album, leaving listeners feeling thoughtful. The lyrics of this album are beautifully written and it’s an album to be saved for when you really want to think about life in the dark of the night.
Must Hear: “I Don’t Wear Gold” and “Sleeping In The Bathroom”
Album Name: Master Volume
Release Number: 3
Hailing From: Ontario, Canada
Genre: Pop-Punk Fusion
Label: Dine Alone Records
Master Volume is full of pop punk intros, quick guitar riffs and loud vocals. A perfect fit for the next Tony Hawk Pro Skater soundtrack, The Dirty Nil captures the essence of punk music. Focusing on distorted guitars, pounding drums and howling vocals, this album was carefully crafted into eleven diverse punk songs for a wide range of listeners. It’s an overall rock out and feel good album that will have you singing the day away.
Must Hear: “That’s What Heaven Feels Like,” “Bathed in Light,” “Super 8,” “I Don’t Want That Phone Call” and “Evil Side”
