    Bomb The Music Industry! - Vacation

    2011 was probably my favorite and most important year for music easily

  12. 2011 was the year I found AP.net, mainly through a lot of those albums hahaha. That summer was transformational for me musically.

    I'll make a Spotify / Apple Music playlist of these (or maybe just 1 song each) when I get some free time. I'll be sure to share it with the thread.

    But for real, I can't seem to connect with any of the music coming out of that scene in the last few years. I think I can certainly chalk it up to the fact that I just don't enjoy (and therefore don't seek out) this type of music anymore, but from what I have heard lately, it does nothing for me.

    Curiously though, despite being aware of my different musical tastes now, these albums that I used to love (shout out to Gospel/OCL, Ups and Downsizing, Avalanche United, L&F and Chasing Hamburg/CBGP) still hit me as hard as they used to. I guess that's all easily explained as being heard through the rose-coloured filter of nostalgia, even subconsciously, but I find it fascinating nonetheless.

    I still tear up almost every time during the bridge of "Ups and Downsizing".
    "It's looking up."

    good for me is my favorite swellers too. first two songs are rippers along with best i ever had. i liked the more rock vibe with big production.

    is anything good coming out of this scene lately? the only thing i kind of like is state champs, havent heard a single newer pop punk band i like in a long time.

    The Gospel Youth released quite a good album almost two weeks ago or so, should def check it out. Also Jeff Rosenstock's album Worry if you haven't listened already, not particularly pop punk but he's always had a few songs from there that leans towards pop punk/indie punk/folk punk
