LSHF ‘Are we doing the best we can?’ is record of the day on Rock-it!

‘Are we doing the best we can?’ the new album by Low Standards, High Fives, is Record of the Day on today.
You can check out their review here:

‘Three years after their “Enough” EP Low Standards, High Fives release their first full-length album titled “Are We Doing the Best We Can?”: finally a more complete work that successfully returns to the path walked so far by this promising band. This record already convinces with its artwork, but of course what counts is its content, and that resumes all the good stuff we’ve already been hearing in their past works, but in an even more mature way now.
Their style connects to american emo and it’s clear since the first notes of ‘Bite Me’ and the vocal melody from ‘Silent Decor’ perfectly mix ‘with some contemporary indie-rock distortions and some pleasing 90’s references. The intensity and enthralling melody of ‘The Twist’ with its melancholy spaces and post-rock shades keeps it hurtling along.
‘Remember Me’ is the most classic emo song of the entire record, and ‘Just Like Silence’ is almost a pop song, followed by ‘Slow Dancers in a Rush Hour’ a little masterpiece of atmosphere, a musical picture in black and white, a lo-fi apocalypse with a climax made of sound and distortion that lets the voices in only in its second half.
‘Crazy Boy’ is another song that fully convinces us and that remakes the direction taken by the band. The final song ‘Distance By Connection’ starts slowly and is deeply emotional – it is in summary, LSHF’s style and sound.
LSHF successfully repeat and confirm themselves as one of the most interesting bands of this musical genre.’

With a moniker taken from a vaporising device featured in the 1970’s sci-fi novel ‘A Whirlpool Of Stars, UK punk-rock trio ‘Tonota 80’ transmit news that their new album ‘Killer Sands And Beating Hearts’ is OUT NOW!

Originally becoming acquainted through a chance meeting in their local record store; the Maidstone/Kent based musicians David Bloomfield (Vox/Guitar), Richard Pronger (Bass/Vox) and John Edwards (Drums) met again several years later and hatched ‘Tonota 80’ upon the UK music scene. Despite the band being firmly routed in old school British punk reverie, the 3 piece bring in subtle influences from an myriad of genres. Citing the likes of Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr, Swervedriver and Radio Birdman as some of their most influential peers – Tonota 80 are encased with a penchant for brash guitar riffs, colossal melodic hooks and 60’s inspired vocal harmonies.

Their self-released debut ‘Jonesing For Chips’ brought much welcomed support from revered BBC 6 Music taste-maker Steve Lamacq and captured them many fans of underground British rock music. After time spent out to write and produce new material, the punk fuelled anthems of Tonota 80 caught the attention of Engineer Records who shall deliver the digital/CD release of the bands latest creations.
