ALBUM REVIEW: The Bouncing Souls – Ten Stories High


From the crashing chords, Greg Attonito’s emphatic vocal style, and taut melodies of the title track you know exactly what The Bouncing Souls’ new record Ten Stories High (Pure Noise Records) is all about; raucous, to the point, Pop Punk. This is their twelfth album and it definitely does not outstay its welcome – these ten songs are all wrapped up in under twenty-six minutes.

Sammy Kay Streaming “Saints and Sinner”

Sammy Kay

Sammy Kay

Singer/songwriter Sammy Kay is streaming “Saints and Sinner,” off his upcoming full length debut album Fourth Street Singers out March 10, 2015 via Panic State Records, here.

Hailing from Asbury Park, NJ singer/songwriter Sammy Kay has lived the kind of romantic life that can only be found in a song. After living in Brooklyn and Los Angeles, then seeing the world working as a tour manager for three years, Kay has used his travels and experiences to hone his song-craft into an endearing mixture of punk rock, Americana, and soul. Always behind-the-scenes helping other artist’s grow and succeed, Kay built strong friendships all across the country, these friends would later come together to help record his debut album. Now, with the release of his debut full length, Fourth Street Singers, Sammy Kay is excited to step into the spotlight and show listeners what he’s capable of.

Recorded by Pete Steinkopft of The Bouncing Souls at Little Eden Studios, Fourth Street Singers was crafted from the ground up with an all-star cast of accomplished musicians, featuring members of The Slackers, Franz Nicolay’s band, Rancid‘s touring band, Westbound Train, Leftover Crack, Plow United and more. The sense of camaraderie from the recording studio is palpable across the 10 tracks on Fourth Street Singers, but Kay’s songs are more than just bar anthems. There is a yearning that can’t be denied in every song. Whether it’s a desire for truth, connection, or something more, these tracks feel authentic and lived-in. Even Kay’s take on the Tom Waits classic “Old Shoes (Pictures And Postcards)” feels entwined with the story told on Fourth Street Singers.

Harnessing influences ranging across the spectrums of rock n’ roll, punk, and Americana, Sammy Kay has crafted an album that is uniquely personal while still invitingly familiar, wild and free while still reserved and dynamic. Full of love and despair, life and death, salvation and American rock n’ roll, Fourth Street Singers is Sammy Kay.

Fourth Street Singers track list:
01. You Ought To Know
02. Saints and Sinners
03. Your Way
04. Highs and Lows
05. Forever and a Day
06. Truth
07. Shipwreck
