Episode 51: The Patterns

Step into the Twilight Zone with The Patterns‘ third release in a trilogy of magic and mystery inspired by the tv series. This pop/punk transplant from the UK now based in London, ON has a lot going for it. If you have yet to get into the sci-fi show, this is a wonderful introduction, though it also serves as a solid companion piece if you’re a superfan like Dylan. Certainly an aural experience to be dug into, so get in the loop! And mark your calendar’s for July 19th!!!

Episode 35: PUP

One of Dylan’s personal faves, we tackled PUP’s second full release, The Dream is Over. These Toronto-based punk rockers are reinvigorating the genre, making a fan out of Jesse, and managing to pull themes of depression, death, angst and acceptance into a solid and varied record. With as many complex narratives as there are straightforward loud-fun-angry tracks, it’s a safe bet to say their dream is only beginning.
