Daytrader - Firebreather (From their new album Twelve Years).
Taken on 5/10/12 at Planet Trog in Whitehall, PA.
Think back to when you were a kid. Try to remember what caused you to gravitate toward punk rock in the first place. It may have been the loud guitars, the fast drums, the rolling bass, the harsh vocals, sure. But what made you stay? Chances are, so long as you allowed your mind to naturally…
Album Review: Daytrader - Twelve Years
Rise Records has been doing some odd things lately. For awhile the label was known for signing up-and-coming hardcore, metalcore, and etc. genres but recently they’ve been pushing the pop-punk agenda with bands like Man Overboard, Transit, The Early November, and Daytrader. Now, I’m not saying that any of those bands are this certain and only genre, (cause figuring out genres is one of the best ways to waste time and lose friends) but it definitely is a good way to start a dialogue about Twelve Years, the latest album by Daytrader.
First of all, the album is good. Very good. Extremely solid all around with sounds that remind me of Anberlin and Valencia. The sound that Daytrader plays with on this album, like Transit and Man Overboard’s sound, is a revisit to a sound of the early 2000’s music scene and building upon what was laid down back then. Twelve Years is filled with catchy tunes that will be played with car windows down for those who give it a simple listen, like they did back in the olden days of 2002!
Daytrader is definitely a band to keep an eye out for. The passionate singing delivery mixed with crunchy guitars is something that has been done over and over again, yet Daytrader make new with it on Twelve Years. Now, I would close this review out with a sentence about listening to this album twelve years from now but I’d rather not be that lame. Plus, I can’t predict the future. I can say for sure though that this album will be listened to throughout the year.
