terminal boredom reviews roman candles tape

terminal boredom reviewed the newest roman candles tape

Roman Candles "Last Exit to Berkeley" cassette
Over the past years I've reviewed enough Roman Candles releases that these guys now seem like friends. Like that one guy you went to school with, that you weren't really all that fond of in the first place, but he was just always there since you grew up on the same street or whatever so you tolerated his presence. But you could do without as well. It's to the point where they send a short letter with each release now (I think the last one said "Suck on this Termbo."). I never like their music and say so in their reviews, but they just keep sending shit anyway. Love-hate relationship? Friendly rivalry? I dunno. They said in this package that this is their last one. I'll miss you guys, but I won't miss your corny acoustic folk music or whatever this shit is. Take it easy Christopher, you're a good sport, and congrats on graduating.(RK)

MRR reviews the stowaways issue #4

Maximum Rocknroll #346-MAR-2012
reviewed the stowaways issue number four. pick up a copy.

8.5 X 11 - Copied - 9pgs

This zine briefly documents a scene that I try and avoid, you know, the whole cutesy, pop-punk, kinda-folky, make you feel like you're at your six year old cousin's birthday party type of thing. So, maybe, I'm a little biased. But, honestly, I found The Stowaways to be a little on the boring side. The interview with Joyce Manor, which pretty much only covers the fact that the band doesn't like how their recordings sound and what records they like, while simultaneously serving at the centerpiece of the issue, resembles an awkward, small-talky conversation that doesn't seem to go anywhere. Even the record reviews made me feel out of the loop and isolated. For instance, the author describes one band as a "punk version of Jack Johnson," which to me sounds quite frightening. But, hey, what do I know?It's quite possible that someon who enjoys the kind of music covered in this stack of papers wouldn't be so harsh. (KR)
