Review: Silverstein – I Am Alive in Everything I Touch

Review: Silverstein – I Am Alive in Everything I Touch

Most post-hardcore bands that formed 15 years ago are now resigned to playing reunion tours. But the secret to Silverstein’s success has always been their ability to merge heavier influences into the pop paradigm, without allowing either side to seem out of place. As such, on their eighth album, radio-friendly rocker like “Je Me Souviens” (hey, they’re from Ontario) is an unexpectedly heavy moment. And while songs like “Heaven, Hell and Purgatory” will beat you down only to lift you up again, it’s a sonic ride worth taking. JONAH BAYER

Confirmed: Kanye West went through a McDonald’s drive-thru in his Lamborghini

Confirmed: Kanye West went through a McDonald’s drive-thru in his Lamborghini

Truthfully, there’s really no good reason to post this, aside from it being Friday afternoon on Memorial Day weekend and chances are you’ve already began drinking and will find this even more funny. Also, it’s just another example of Kanye West’s eccentric nature, previously seen in him ordering Chinese food from jail, teaching a college class, and storing his Grammys in a sock drawer. I’d like to think he actually went to Mickey D’s with the intention of stopping the Hamburglar and finally winning over the American public’s hearts, only to find out that thing he saw was just a commercial. But since he was already there, why not order a Fish Filet?
