Sorry Sweetheart – 50 First Dates

I admit that I’m one of the people who find it hard to admit to strangers that they like skate-punk or, even worse, ska-punk. I’m not at all ashamed of the music itself or of the fact that the majority of other fans of the music are fifteen-year-olds at the mall. Nah, it’s all that positivity and happiness that I’m distrustful of. 

But I’m trying to grow. And, not much grows out of bitterness, sadness, or resentment. Just look at competing music scenes that had any of these things as their prime ingredient. There aren’t as many new goth bands as we would need. Gangsta rappers nowadays dress in a suit & tie and run their businesses. And black metallers are too busy with their vlogs to burn down churches anymore. 

With all of the bad things in the world in mind, listen to Sorry Sweetheart’s “50 First Dates,” which brings a bit of fun, romance, and easy-breezy feelings to rock music and the world. The band certainly knows how to make an impression and how to bring in the hooks that might make you remember to play Sorry Sweetheart the next time you’re feeling just about ready to start applying white makeup to your face and search the location of the nearest goth club. 


Vanity Score – Like It Never Happened

Have you ever heard a soccer player mumbling an answer to questions about their country, geopolitics, or world peace? Sure, they would. That’s not what they’re paid for or what they’ve been trained to do. And, really, would you want a striker who has accumulated small but consistent brain trauma by hitting the ball with his head as your political analyst? We got spies/reporters paid for that. 

Musicians are a little bit in the same boat. It’s at the moment that you strap on a guitar and start writing songs that the world assumes you must be some kind of Bob Dylan or Woody Guthrie-like figure. So, the musicians bow their heads and write some songs about the government. Isn’t that how Anti-Flag made us believe they were deep for so long when they were actually dipshits? 

What has Vanity Score learned recently? Nothing that they want to share through song. This is a fun pop-punk band. They’re not trying to be cult leaders or get you to sign up for Antifa. “Like It Never Happened” sounds like the first draft of a blink-182 song, just before they realize they ought to make it about something. Like Seinfeld, this is about nothing, and it’s enough.
