The Release of “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore.”

Moose Blood is a pop punk band from Canterbury, Kent. On March 9, Moose Blood released its third full length album I Don’t Think I Can Do It Anymore via. Hopeless Records.

The singles released prior to the album were “Talk In Your Sleep,” “Have I Told You Enough,” “It’s Too Much,” and “Just Outside.”

Here is the track list:

  1. Have I Told You Enough
  2. Talk In Your Sleep
  3. Just Outside
  4. You Left In The Worst Way
  5. All The Time
  6. Can We Stay Like This
  7. Pull Me From The Floor
  8. Walk All Day With You
  9. Such A Shame
  10. Promise Me
  11. It’s Too Much

After hearing the singles, I was excited to hear what album would sound like in whole. Personally, when I listen to an album, I tend to not pay as much attention to the middle portion of  the album because the beginning and end songs are strong. I Don’t Think I Can Do This Anymore was not like other albums.

The strongest part of the album was the middle portion. The singles were nice to have as a cushion at the beginning and end of the album. Strategically, it’s interesting that the group’s singles are at the beginning and the end so listeners are hooked to begin the album. The album was catchy and it didn’t feel like the songs were on repeat.

My favorite songs off of the album are: “Can We Stay Like This,” “Walk All Day With You,” and “Talk In Your Sleep.”

On the U.K tour with The Dangerous Summer, Moose Blood performed “It’s Too Much,” “Just Outside,” “You Left In The Worst Way,” “Have I Told You Enough,” and “Talk In Your Sleep.” Moose Blood will be touring across the United States with Lydia, and McCafferty. Tickets and tour information can be found here. Time will tell if those songs will be performed.

In other news, Panic! At The Disco’s “Nine In The Afternoon” has been certified 2x platinum, John O’Callaghan of The Maine created a remix for “Lost In Nostalgia,” Movements partnered with the Alzheimer Association to release the music video for “Deadly Dull,” The Wonder Years released “Pyramids of Salt,” Paramore announced a summer tour with Foster The People (tickets and tour information can be found here,) The Dangerous Summer announced part 2 of “The Dangerous Summer” US tour with A Will Away and All Get Out supporting (Ticket and tour information can be found here.)

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!

Jake Bundrick, drummer of Mayday Parade, helped co-write a few songs to the album and praised the group for the album in an Instagram post. I’d like to praise Milestones as well for Red Lights. The album gives me a 2000s vibe which is enjoyable. I hope that Milestones tours in the United States in the near future. Let me know what you think of Milestones by tweeting me @ovictoriamedia.

Concert Review: COIN at Irving Plaza NYC

Hey everyone! If you follow my Twitter @ovictoriamedia you know that many voted for an ICYMI blog post. I figured I’d make a bonus blog for you all. Hope you all enjoy!

Irving Plaza in New York City holds over 1,000 people. COIN visited Irving Plaza on the “North American Tour 2018” on Friday February 9, 2018. Accompanying COIN on tour is The Aces. The NYC date was sold out.

I purchased a VIP ticket to the show which allowed me to watch the show from the back of the sound board on the second floor. On the second floor is a bar and an open area where you can see the show.

The bar on the second floor had specialty drinks made for the group. Here is a picture of the drink menu.

The opening act was The Aces. The girl group put on a 30-40 minute set. The crowd was loud with the opening act singing back lyrics and dancing. After waiting 20 minutes, COIN took the stage. Here is the setlist:

  1. Growing Pains
  2. Boyfriend
  3. I Don’t Wanna Dance
  4. Time Machine
  5. Are We Alone?
  6. Hannah
  7. Run
  8. Don’t Cry, 2020
  9. I Would
  10. Heart Eyes
  11. (Talk)
  12. Youuu
  13. Miranda Beach
  14. Malibu 1992
  15. Talk Too Much
  16. Fingers Crossed
  17. Feeling *ENCORE*

The show was awesome. I’ve never seen COIN perform live before, and the group performed as great as I thought they would. The group sounds as great live ans they do on an album. The audience were engaged in the music and vivacious with the group. I feel that COIN is an up and coming band and is gaining more traction with their latest album How Will You Know If You Never Try? COIN’s music has been playing on a variety of alternative music stations including Sirius XM’s Alt Nation.

After COIN’s set, I got the chance to meet Regan, a disc jockey on AltNation. After socializing with him, I went down the stairs and met with an employee of Irving Plaza. Since I purchased a VIP ticket, I received a poster courtesy of Irving Plaza. The poster is with COIN’s tour artwork giving information that the show is sold out.

Thanks for reading the bonus blog!

Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
