    Band name is catchy..something your not likely to forget.

    I can name a thousand that are just plain stupid but that didn't stop people from liking them or the longevity of their career

    He knows his audience -- old-mid wave Xers and all manner of Boomers.

    Not my thing but I wish them luck! It's good to see a thread exploring new music, however. Of course they're looked upon with the usual disdain similar to what our parents and grandparents did when The Beatles and Stones hit our shores.

    You spend most of your life trying not to turn into your parents and the other half acting just like they did.

    It's really depressing how many people on this forum, which is beginning to resemble a senior community, are unwilling to open their ears and minds and embrace new sounds like they once did.

    EP is supposed to come out tomorrow (Dec. 8). Asked my local shop to get one in.

    Just put a pre-order in but I am wondering why they would have chose to only release BSR on vinyl? Why not do the new FTF release as well? Questionable merchandizing management :waiting:

    I picked up the BSR EP at a local shop over the weekend.

    Young promising Hard Rock band that hasn't yet released their first full lenght record. Still they are pissed all over by some Forum members. Is it better that current music is a mix of EDM and Rap. Let the young guys evolve and bring back some youngsters to Rawk. Hey, hey, My, my.....

    Vinyl sounds fine, mine had a slight warp, but nothing major. I really think it should have been a 7inch 45rpm instead of a 12inch 33rpm, but oh well.

    They just sound too much like Zeppelin for me to take them seriously as a real artist. Also the fact that they don't even mention zeppelin as an influence in multiple interviews turns me off. The singer listed John ****ing Denver as a top 3 influence on him, but won't even acknowledge Plant's influence? C'mon

    This is all I see with all the negative comments who can't get past removing their lips from Led Zeppelin's collective bum:

    Seriously, these guys are really good. Yes, they're not terribly original, and the vocalist does sound a lot like Plant - so what? The guy's got a great set of pipes, and the music just plain rocks. What more could you ask for?

    I'll be curious to see how their first full-length album turns out - but this EP already shows some promise.

    A guy I work with introduced me to them yesterday. Just listened on Tidal and purchased the cd. Looking forward to more.

    Recently saw them at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. If you were wondering, these kids can really bring it live.

    Yes, it is very Zeppelin influenced. In the same way a band like Rancid is Clash influenced. Interested in seeing how they develop as a band

    It's already shaping up to be a good 2018 for the band as they'll be playing at at some big music fests.

    Those festival slots and touring dollars are the best way to stay viable as a working band these days:

    You sound very confused. These guys do not represent what is best about NEW music.
    They sound like a baby boomer's wet dream, ha ha ha

    That line about the parents? So when the Beatles and the Stones came out the adults were complaining that they were second rate versions of music they used to listen to??
    NO They listened to Pop and Big Band and Jazz and Country and Classical and etc. They didn't like the new bands because they didn't sound like what they thought music was.

    Tired old Rock fans who hear this band and say, "Finally, some real music" are the problem, not older people who actually like new and talented and different sounding music.

    Again, that was a very confused post there

    My parents listened to Doo-Wop and Elvis.

    Sorry for the confusion. :crazy:

    • I learned of their music from two Wall Street Journal articles. Color me impressed, but I have no idea why they were covered in the Wall Street Journal. As of a couple of months ago, I was unable to find vinyl releases of their albums. I think every radio station gig and every club they ever played is live on YouTube.

    Wolfbrother from another mother? They have talent but, the singer's Plant affectations are to m-m-m-ma-m-ma-m-ma-m-much for me.

    Because they are a young band that was already getting excellent press and reviews from the music media and the WSJ writer who wrote the story covers music/audio (including a piece on vinyl that made Mike Fremer flip out).

    They only just put out a vinyl release of their first EP and it sold out quickly. Their output is available to stream, on CD and download. I'm sure they'll be putting out more vinyl.

    Right now I'm sure they are focused on playing and getting as many live gigs lined up as possible since that's the only way to make any real money in the music biz these days.
