“All You Need” by Snuff

Subtitle: It’s the little things.

Here, I just want to speak about “All You Need”, a good example of what I like about this band the most: Snuff is interested in unremarkable everyday life.
Duncan sings about a person in a state of oblivion. He sees “an empty shell of a man”…

“End Time” by SULK

Subtitle: The Duration Of Happiness.

How long can a person be happy for? How long can they withstand joy without being exhausted? The question isn’t about how long they would like to be happy (if you asked that, everybody would surely say “forever”). But for how long can a person really take it?…

“A couple of times a year I make myself a tape to play in the car, a tape full of all the new songs I’ve loved over the previous few months, and every time I finish one I can’t believe that there’ll be another.

The Soft Moon Live @ Gagarin, Athens (5/3/13)

The Isolation

I like myths. Everybody does. But I prefer knowing the truth. It takes a lot of nerve to create a myth on the internet nowadays. Pop music had the reach it had because it was creating myths and heroes. All of that is over and done with now. Good riddance….

A Place to Bury Strangers – So Far Away [Onwards to the Wall EP, 2012]

I believe that APTBS’s weakness is composition. If I’m not mistaken, Skywave (Oliver Ackerman’s previous band) was disbanded in 2004…
