Another Free Alternativ News Sampler: A Pop-Punk Summer
It appears that the French have good taste in pop-punk. French webzine AlternativNews has already released one excellent sampler of pop-punk, punk, and hardcore music this year, and now have just put up another great one full of rising bands for free download. This sampler is perfect for summer drives, as upbeat pop-punk tunes of all kinds are accented. The poppier side contains I Call Fives, Handguns, The Offseason, and Washington Square Park, while fans of gruffer voices may enjoy Living With Lions, The Story So Far, Crucial Dudes, or Rust Belt Lights. Other personal favorites on the sampler include Carridale, State Champs, and Our Life Story, but there isn't a poor band out of the thirty three tracks. There's no harm in downloading or streaming, so you can check it out here. Put it on your iPod, click shuffle, and take a drive down abandoned streets with friends. This is what summer is all about.
