Bayside

Thanks to Justin, not only for requesting this, but for getting me to properly listen to these guys. I'm definitely loving what I'm hearing and now wondering why I didn't get into this earlier.


Bayside is a four-piece band from Queens, New York, that formed in 2000. They play a blend of  alternative rock/punk/emo/indie/pop punk/post-hardcore, or something like that. Whatever it is, it's good. Really good. They're kind of reminding me of bands such as Alkaline Trio, Senses Fail, Saves The Day, The Movielife, Cursive, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, and New Found Glory, kind of. They've also probably been pretty influential themselves. They're definitely melodic, but can be in both a poppy and aggressive sense. The guitar work is pretty impressive in terms of variety, and the vocals find the perfect medium between softness and abrasiveness, letting them lean to either side at times. I'm really glad I finally heard this, and suggest that anyone else who hasn't heard them get to listening to them. Enjoy what I could find by them.

  2. Could you try to upload a different version of Just Enough to Love You from Sirens and Condolences? On the hard copy there's a different version with a slight change in the lyrics and it leaves out a part from the version you have (which is the same version from the Name Taken split). The version your missing is the version I prefer more because the slight lyric changes and them taking out that certain section makes the song more enjoyable for me and every other download I can find of the album is the same way.
