Playlist - July Singles Part 1

Farewell and Paramore today, Faber Drive and Panic! later. Any other requests of singles from this month you can post in the comments.

Farewell's new single, Devoid (That's What I Think About It) is a great pop-punk song about the whole image of rock. This song is directed towards bands such as the Millionaires, Brokencyde (whom I don't necessarily hate), and other similar bands. The chorus, which includes lines such as "When did rock and roll become this F***ing fashion show" and "I'll smash the radio devoid of any heart and soul" definitely point to that. Other than the lyrics, Farewell does an amazing job on the song. The verses flow very well similarly to Eighty Eights from their past album. The chorus is also very catchy. The lyrics are definitely what makes this song extremely good. You can listen to it on myspace HERE. The album comes out September 1st.

Paramore's new single, Ignorance, sounds very different than the Paramore from Riot. Ignorance definitely is much more punk and less pop than anything on Riot. This single was definitely influenced by No Doubt. If you listen to Hayley's voice closely in the beginning you can definitely hear hints of Gwen in it. Curiously, they actually went on tour recently. However, the single might have been done beforehand. The song is definitely structured very interestingly. It almost sounds like it has two choruses. When first listening to the song, I thought the bridge actually was the chorus. There's also a repeated part right after the chorus which includes the song name. Old fans of songs such as Misery Business and Crushcrushcrush may not enjoy this single, but it definitely makes me curious about how the album will be. Hopefully there will be some of both worlds. You can listen to the song on their myspace HERE. The album comes out September 29th.
