Frontside: No Love

6. In My Face
7. Souls

For those of you who actively followed Long Drive Records when that was something I was doing you guys probably remember Cut Your Losses, remember their strikingly handsome vocalist Jeremy? Well this is what he is doing now. I remember being so excited to hear this release and then hearing it and feeling instantly let down...but nah in all honesty this is really good like REALLY good. The vocals are filled with both hurt and anger and the instrumentals are basically just really groovy mosh riffs and two steps...So to put it bluntly it's a hardcore record that gets you moving every time you hear it. 9/10 release for me and I can't wait to hear more from these boys. California Hardcore Coming at ya! 

Favorite Track: No Love

If you're someone who follows me on social media then you know that Columbus is a band I post about a lot, not only do these guys put out music that is both emotional and honest but they are some of the kindest dudes I've ever had the privilege of talking to. When I first got the idea to start a record label I wanted Columbus to be my first release, I nervously sent them a facebook message about releasing a 7" of "Sad Songs And Sing-Alongs" and they replied with a genuine and enthusiastic yes, and down the line when I realized I would no longer be able to afford to release a 7" they were extremely cool and understanding. When I listen to these four songs I hear well written lyrics that reflect heartbreak,abandonment and feeling lost and empty, all emotions I deal with on a daily basis. The instrumentation is equally incredible and only adds to the feelings that this ep gives overall I give it a 9.5 out of 10 and recommend it to everyone. 

Favorite track: Toss & Turn.
