It’s time to discuss my favorite band: The Front Bottoms. The Front Bottoms are an American indie rock band that originated in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey in 2006. Their latest album (and arguably their best album) was released on October 13, 2017, marking their sixth album release. Known for their thoughtful lyrics and garage-band-chic production, The Front Bottoms is worth a good, hearty listen during your next long commute or road trip. Here are the top picks from this iconic punk band.
“Maps” is a song from “The Front Bottoms” album, one of the earliest studio releases. The production gives the track a great tempo and the lyrics are certainly some of my favorite that the band has ever released.
“Flashlight” is one of my first loves. The lyrics are what attracted me first, which is usually the case with any sone from The Front Bottoms. The production is out of the ordinary for the earlier tracks of the band- more laid back and a trumpet tune that is to die for.
“Peace Sign” is a track from the band’s newest album and my current commute tune. It’s a track that is easy to put on repeat, the oddly swing production easy to enjoy in any mood.
“Far Drive” is an upbeat track from the band’s newest album. The nostalgic subject matter is the biggest draw to this song, the clever lyrics highlighting that emotion.
Another one of my all time favorite, “Vacation Town” is a track from the band’s newest album, as well. The beach-front vacation vibe with someone you love is the largest draw to this song and what will make you keep it on repeat during your next drive.
Arguably one of the best releases that The Front Bottoms has ever released. The lyrics, the production, it all is incredible. Take time to read the lyrics more than once as you listen, and then enjoy the slender of this track.
A favorite for any lover, “Peach” is a great, odd song of romance. This is another one that is worth a few moments of lyric reading. There is a lot of emotion that is worth totally understanding and regarding.
From the “Rose” EP comes “Lipstick Covered Magnet.” The tempo is upbeat and the lyrics are incredibly clever, some of the best that the band has released.
