“If music be the food of love, play on.”

Nicely played, William; nicely played, and while many individuals have an adverse reaction to Shakespeare— joining the ranks of countless high school graduates, all of whom lost the taste for prose somewhere between the umpteenth reading of “Romeo and Juliet” and the mandatory participation in the in-class performance of “Julius Caesar“— the ol’ playwright may just be on to something.

Music, that rare substance that possesses the power to echo the tales of past protests, bears the marks of the movements of generations and whispers the collective history of humanity.  A form of sustenance, music fuels individual appetites and brings friends and strangers to the table.

While musical starvation in our world of interconnectivity and online piracy is virtually impossible, I feel as though I’d be committing nothing short of forcible famine to abandon M.O.S.H. This project, which rose from the ashes of a class requirement, has grown into more than a method of grading and evaluation. It’s a form of sustenance. The time has come and, if I may borrow the immortal prose of Shakespeare, I intend to “play on.”

Write On: The Greatest Hits

In our modern world, the three-meals-a-day model took a stagedive. So, while waiting for that next big musical feast, nibbling is fully advisable and certainly recommended. Below, to save you the trouble of raiding the fridge of pop-punk, alternative rock and indie acoustics, you’ll find a collection of bite-worthy reads that should hold even the most insatiable appetite for a spell.

Bonus: the possibility of a vending machine eating your last dollar bill is slim to none. No need to fear dropping all of your change and looking like a fool, falling to your knees in a desperate scramble to stop the coins from rolling between the Coke machine and your intended treasure trove of over-priced goodies. The tears when you realize that your last quarter just found its way into Narnia via the blackest of abysses; save them for the last all-nighter of the semester.*

*For the sake of artistic direction, let’s just assume that the above example is completely fictitious in nature.


I Call Fives receive praise for their latest endeavor, “Someone That’s Not You”

I Call Fives’ recently released EP, “Someone That’s Not You,” proves that pop punk is alive and well in New Jersey. Infectious melodies and thundering instruments promise to bring the scene to a crescendo, a fact which begs the question, “How are these guys not in the music major leagues yet?”

Someone That’s Not You, is the call to arms the war-front— the stages across the nation— needed. Show-goers, the foot soldiers along the front lines, the stage barriers, and the infantryman in the trenches, more commonly known as M.O.S.H. pits, can now rally behind an anthem worth moving to. The war to defend pop punk, commanded by the likes of Jersey-born The Wonder Years and Man Overboard, is in full effect and, with the recent release of Someone That’s Not You, which has already garnered positive reviews, it’s safe to say that I Call Fives will quickly rise through the ranks. A salute to the Washington Township quintet, who are managed by Buddy Nielsen, front man of Senses Fail, another Jersey-based band, for doing the Garden State proud.
