“In situation of turning lemons into lemonade, having a global pandemic wipe out all of our gigs and touring plans overnight freed up time for us to go back into the studio. As we figured it, best get busy recording or get busy dying.” – Teen Mortgage
October 22, 2021. Week 42 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to , released all of them
“Year of the Fist mix 80’s punk rock energy with 1990s grunge and alternative rock in a way that comes across as unique and refreshing in the year 2021.”
“With all that has gone on over the past two years, it is more important than ever that we take our mental health seriously. ‘You’re Not Alone’ was the first time I’ve ever written a song lyrics first and then added the riff/chords afterwards. This song is a reminder to my friend that I’m here, but also a call out to anyone who is going through a tough time that everyone goes through tough times and it is OK not to be OK. There’s always someone to talk to.” Jimmy Eff
“We started out as a skatepunk band, but over the years we’ve mellowed a bit and have been influenced by a lot of newer bands since then. And a lot of the songs on this album have been written during this period of being influenced by new bands. A bit of backstory on the recording process – we recorded the guitars twice for this album.# Still Shaking
With “…The Stars Would Explode” The Meskimo and Howe synergize in a way rarely seen before. Each of them offers their own talent to the table, which combine so, so well: The Meskimo’s music and Howe’s lyrics and vocals seem to be made to be with each other that it is difficult to imagine that one existed well before the other.
