From Album Leaks to Hermaphrodite Scandals

          So as the summer approaches the end, I just wanted to reflect on all the music buzz over the summer; and talk about the good and the bad. It's not the normal "artist review" but I figured it would help get out some information about a few bands. internet

Well if you didn't know, back on August 11th Thrice released a digital copy of their new album Beggars after it was leaked all over the 3 months early (On July 21st). The original release date was October 13th, but after a change in artwork and removing the Vigrant Records watermarks off of it they released the album. The Dance Party released their new EP Tigers, which can be purchased on Itunes. It features their infamous single Sasha Don't Sleep and Tigers. Another Pulse favorite, Static Brigade (not featured on the blog, but loved none the less) released their self-titled EP in July as well. Check it out on Itunes as well. 

       Our lovely Lady Gaga is suspected to be a hermaphrodite, but she confirmed that her love for females is only physical. Singer Katy Perry remarked on the whole scandal, "Bless her if she has a dick" but assures ABC reporters that she does not believe Gaga does have one. Pop Rock bands Cobra Starship and All Time Low both released new albums as well. The only remark I will make is this, please producers do not auto-tune every sound and over mix good music. I will let you make the real judgement though about their new albums Hot Mess and Nothing Personal. Last of all, post-hardcore phenomenons Enter Shikari released their new album Common Dreads. Two words to describe the album, PURE AWESOMNESS! 

The Pulse is taking a new direction as well. We (or more or less myself) are looking to expand and need a new writer. Email or message me on Facebook if you are interested in joining the club. I am looking specifically for another person in the DC/MD/VA area with an exceptionally good taste in music, but if you do not live in the area never fear; anyone is welcome to join us in our music-spreading wonders and be a writer as well. Let me know if you want to join the family :)

Rock out, and Relax
The Pulse
