August Music Recommendations

Happy August! As summer comes to a close, Matthew and I are back with four more music recommendations! Both of us will recommend two albums each. For each album recommendation, we have provided a YouTube link to a song from that particular album. Feel free to give each song a listen!  If you have any comments, recommendations, or musical suggestions, don’t hesitate to email us at, or leave a comment on the Instagram or Twitter post. Enjoy!

Sam’s Recommendations:

interupters 1

ARTIST: The Interrupters

ALBUM TITLE: In the Wild (2022)

The Interrupters are keeping Ska Punk alive! This latest album is a testament to their evolution as a band and the genre itself. The band navigates through past traumas and lessons learned that are contrasted with great hooks and two-tone melodies. 

SONG TO CHECK OUT: In the Mirror

SIMILAR ARTISTS: No Doubt, Goldfinger, NOFX

placebo 1

ARTIST: Placebo

ALBUM TITLE: Never Let Me Go (2022)

Still going strong since the mid-1990s, British alt-rock band Placebo comes out with their 8th studio album. This album still lives up to its classic post-industrial/grunge instrumentation and melodic, yet soothing vocals.  


SIMILAR ARTISTS: Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, Muse

Matthew’s Recommendations:

Big Wreck 1

ARTIST: Big Wreck

ALBUM TITLE: Big Wreck 7.1 (2021)

Hard-driving Canadian band Big Wreck has been pumping out quality heavy and southern-tinged rock music since the 90s, but their recent turn towards releasing EPs instead of albums has resulted in some of their most focused, catchy songs so far. Hard to do for a band that’s almost 30 years old!

SONG TO CHECK OUT: High on the Hog

SIMILAR ARTISTS: Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Queens of the Stone Age

Turnstile 1

ARTIST: Turnstile

ALBUM TITLE: Glow On (2021)

Turnstile blew up in big fashion after releasing Glow On last year, one of the most upbeat, groovy, and catchy rock albums the world has seen in recent years. Sounds great at the skate park or at full volume in your car.


SIMILAR ARTISTS: Jane’s Addiction, Incubus, Rage Against the Machine
