Review: All Time Low – Wake Up, Sunshine

All Time Low belong to a certain class of rock band. They were finding their feet just as the likes of Paramore, Fall Out Boy, and My Chemical Romance were reaching arena status, something they would achieve much later in 2015 when they headlined the Hydro, and when these bands had either left the scene behind or had hung up their boots. Now eight albums deep, Wake Up, Sunshine occupies a strange place as the band recalibrate following the shaky Last Young Renegades. To set things right, All Time Low have looked back to move forward, the end result being a record that longs for the mid-2000s.

Review: StAnza 2020

I’ve put off my review of this year’s StAnza Poetry Festival because, with all the current weirdness, I figured it might be good to hear about past events during a time of festive dearth. Well, that’s my excuse, although the truth is that there is so much to say about StAnza, even though I was only there for a day.

Josh David Jordan: You always want more but this film needed to be just this

With its echoes of Inside Llewyn Davis and Once, Josh David Jordan’s debut feature This World Won’t Break sets the unknown singer-songwriter’s struggle for recognition in the hot, dusty hues of the director’s hometown Dallas, Texas. The Fountain (TF) caught up with Jordan to chat about lessons learned, family projects and why making it big doesn’t necessarily prove you’re a great artist.
