And here’s Mixtapes again with yet another release. Talk about being prolific! “Ordinary Silence” is the name of the latest full-length by this Cincinatti-based pop-punk band and it’s their first for No Sleep Records.

There are14 more of their cutesy songs on it. Album opener “Bad Parts” immediately shows off the band’s snappy, hook-laden tunes with their trademark male/female vocals. From there on the songs just breeze by which is part of their charm but also their biggest shortcoming. The problem that I have with this band is that while their material works on EPs, the songs are a bit too carefree to keep me interested throughout an entire album.

But hey, who am I to say anything bad about these guys. With No Sleep backing them, lots of shows and even more releases, they’ll waltz right over everyone until they have achieved world domination.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
