    Default Jake's Music Journal

    This will be my journal of music, obviously, hence the title. My music preferences vary widely, so if you hear something on my journal that you do not really care for then just keep looking ;) I'll try to cover everything. I'll label my music by genres (I know many people will not agree with the genres I may put for certain bands are artists, but please bear with me.)
    I'm not really sure what else to say. Uhm. I guess I'll just start will a little review of an album in my next post. I'll keep this first post updated with bands and artists that I have reviewed etc.
    1. La Dispute - Somewhere At the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair
    2. Cady Groves

    Default La Dispute - Somewhere At the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair


    Genre: Screamo (real screamo guys.)/Hardcore (real hardcore guys)
    Album: Somewhere At the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair
    Album Cover:

    So a little bit about this band, they've been around since 2004. I started listening to them on accident actually. I was looking up some music by Geoff Rickly and stumbled upon them. They are really unique, only a handful of bands have a similar sound, one of those bands would be Touche Amore. Just really good, really different music. This album, Somewhere At the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair, was their first album. They have a total of two albums and a ton of EPs.

    Here's the music video for their song titled "Such Small Hands" from the album.


    After listening you have some idea of what they sound like, even if the song is just over a minute long. If I had to describe the song I would compare it to a mixture of Cage The Elephant and Bert McCracken's screams from The Used's self-titled album. The best thing about this band is not their unique sounds, but the lyrics. The lyrics this guy writes are so deep. I'm not really sure how he does it, he does refer to a girl a lot, so I guess some sort of mishap happened in a relationship and he derives his lyrics from that. However he does it, it is great.

    Here is and example of that lyrical genius. (Much longer song this time.)
    La Dispute - Andria


    Here are two more songs from the album that I like.

    La Dispute - Sad Prayers for Guilty Bodies


    La Dispute - Damaged Goods

    Default Cady Groves

    Let's do a complete 180. I'm now going to review Cady Groves. Not a specific album, more as an overall artist. Cady Groves has been featured with many artists such as Stephen Jerzak, Plugin Stereo, Secondhand Serenade, and Breathe Electric. She's a fairly new artist, her album, the Life of a Pirate was released in 2010. My girlfriend is a fan of her, and she is the reason why I started to listen to Cady Groves.



    Album Cover: (The Life of a Pirate)


    There's a few reasons why I like this girl. First of all, she is young and in my opinion she is just so adorable. Messy hair and all. Secondly, she has a really "cute" (not sure what other word to use besides cute) voice. She is featured in a lot of songs, and I can't help but like it.

    Music Video: Real With Me


    Personal Favorite Featuring Song: Plugin Stereo Ft. Cady Groves - Oh Darling (STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS)


    Favorite Cady Groves Song:
    The Sting

    Default Sonny Moore



    One of my favorite artists of all time. You may know him as Sonny Moore, or the former lead singer of From First To last, or more famously as Skrillex. The dubstep dj. No matter what style of music you have listened to by him you know that he is a unique guy and all of his music has a unique sound. I've listened to all of his music, though I wish he was still in From First To Last, I like his current work in Dubstep and I am very glad that he is making music that he enjoys.

    This little review thing will contain music from his solo music, Skrillex, and From First To Last.

    Music Video: Note To Self - From First To Last

    This song was created while Sonny Moore was still part of From First To Last. I really like the video for this song, and it sounds great. The other guy who sings in this song ended up becoming the new lead singer. And though he is good at singing, the band had a whole new sound with their album without Sonny.

    Song: Populace in Two - From First To Last

    Populace in Two is my personal favorite song by From First To Last. This song was recorded when Sonny was just 16. Its raw and its awesome. Enjoy.

    Music Video: Mora - Sonny Moore

    Sonny Moore went solo, and this is the type of music he began to create. I am not too entirely sure what this genre would be called, I never really listened to anything like it before I heard it from Sonny Moore.

    Song: Copaface - Sonny Moore

    Throughout ALL of his music this song has my favorite lyrics. They are confusing, but at the same time genius.

    Music Video: First of The Year - Skrillex

    Skrillex. Sonny Moore's dubstep name. This is a music video for one of his songs. This song has a killer sound that is so easy to just jam to. The music video itself is the epitome of creepsville.

    Song: Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites - Skrillex

    Easily the most famous Skrillex song. Just like the previous song, it is really easy to jam to and Sonny does a great job at making these songs.

    Overall Sonny Moore is an amazing artist. Most artists stick with the same music and never develop or change. Some people like it when an artist keeps the same sound, but that shows no development. Sonny has grown for sure, and Skrillex is becoming one of the most recognizable names amongst Dubstep artists. His music dabbles in so many genres it is hard to decide what exactly it is.

    nice collection!

    I'm actually doing something alike but with a different goal

    I'm doing a kind of portal for music from every genre there is, and the goal is that my followers broaden their music horizon It is only a facebook site but I think it's kinda fun

    anyway thanks for the tracks I will definitely find a place for them on my list!

    Default Say Anything - In Defense of The Genre

    Say Anything


    Max Bemis - Lead Vocals, Guitar
    Jake Turner - Backup Vocals, Guitar
    Parker Case - Keyboard, Guitar, Backup Vocals
    Jeff turner - Guitar, Backup Vocals
    Coby Linder - Drums, And Backing Vocals
    Adam Siska - Bass Guitar


    One of my best musical finds of all time. The band has been together since 2000, and one time split because of Max Bemis' health problems. Eventually they got back together and started to create music again. The dirty, gritty, and uncensored lyrics from this band are one of the major things that sorts them out from other bands of similar genre. Max Bemis has a unique style of singing that stand out anytime you hear his voice.Their best piece of work, in my opinion, is their full length album that was released in 2007, In Defense of The Genre.



    This 2-disk, 27-track album featured 23 guest vocalists. These included Aaron Gillespie from Underoath and The Almost, and Hayley Williams from Paramore. Lyrics for all 27 songs were written by Bemis himself. Here are some youtube videos that feature songs from the album.

    The Hangover Song Ft. Anthony Green (Current singer of Circa Survive, former singer of Saosin.)


    The Church Channel ft. Hayley Williams (Paramore)


    Spore4s (My favorite Say Anything song, does not feature a guest vocalist.)


    You're The Wanker if Anyone Is Ft. Aaron Gillespie (Underoath, The Almost) Jordan Pundik (New Found Glory) and Chad Gilbert (New Found Glary backup vocals)
