New Onesie Week!

The holidays have been very busy, but I am finally at a point where I can focus on some new stuff!  It’s been a while since I’ve created any new onesies.  Over the next week, a few new designs will be coming out!  The first one was rolled out a few days ago:

This double-sided Sid Vicious onesie is awesome.  My goal when creating any onesie, is to make someone go, “Oh my god, where did you get that!?”  It’s something I keep in the back of my head when I’m brainstorming ideas.

This is now available in our Etsy Shop, eBay Store, and at supersweetshirts.com

Punk Rock Alert!

    Musically I am stuck in the 90’s, and with my wife home on maternity leave, she is quick to send me text messages from the first floor of our home (I work on the 3rd floor) mocking me out with comments like “1998 all day”.  Like Metallica once said, “Sad but true”.  My roots have always been punk rock, and for that genre, I find that there aren’t too many new bands worth listening to. The “Heartsounds” are an exception to that opinion.  This band is awesome, straight up.  I blogged way back about their album “Drifter”, which was my intro album to this band; blogging about how great I thought the album was.  Members of this band, (formally the band “Light this City”) started Heartsounds to pursue their love for punk music.  “Light this City” was more new metal, a genre that isn’t easy to separate yourself from other bands (a polite way of saying that it all sounds the same and is mostly shit), however, even “Light this City” has flashes of makes Heartsounds a great band.  The guitar work is incredibly solid, reminding me of bands like “No Use for a Name” with the composition complexity of “Lagwagon”.  If you were a fan of early 90’s punk music, this band is phenomenal. Their new album is looking to be no different.  They have leaked 3 songs (that I know of) off their upcoming October 15th album, “Internal Eyes”, and each one is more awesome than the next.  These days, I rarely sit around anticipating the release date of a new record, but this one I eagerly await.

Here are the 2 songs off “Internal Eyes” that they have released to wet the pallet:

If you enjoy listening to music from the glory days and can’t really crank it up anymore because of an infant, your infant might as well listen with you while it wears this:

A Serious Addition to Our Toddler Shirts.

   I am excited to start doing black toddler shirts.  The focus for the first part of 2013 has been expanding our toddler shirts section.  What a way to kick it off by adding a bad ass straight edge toddler shirt.  I still chuckle at little kids wearing straight edge shirts.  I mean, of course they are drug free, otherwise their parents should be arrested!  With all of that said, I present to you:

These are now available in our Etsy and eBay stores and will be up on the main site in a few days.  Don’t let your little one leave the house without looking super intense!

New Music

   I rarely post music reviews, mainly because I normally hate anything new coming out.  I come from an era of amazing music so the bar is pretty high.  Over the last few months I’ve made a focused effort to research new bands, listen to new albums in their entirety, and discover numerous “similar artists” along the way.  Like many people, I am a subscriber to Spotify which makes it easy to “star” new music that I like so that I can revisit them.  As of late, there are two bands/albums that have been getting played almost every day for a few weeks now, so I figured I’d write about them.

The first album:

  Heartsounds are freaking awesome.  I can’t stop listening to this cd.  It is pure 90’s Epitaph punk at it’s best and happen to be on the Epitaph label as well.  I find that many times they sound just like “No Use For a Name”.  Great melodic punk loaded with technical riffs speed.  This band is awesome and their video for “Unconditional” off their most recent album “Drifter”, is awesome/hilarious.  

The second album:

The Menzingers are from Scranton, PA and are another Epitaph band.  I actually found both bands together at the same time.  This band is great as well, offering a softer sound with more of an indy touch.  They still have a great punk edge and often remind me of Alkaline Trio.  The most recent album, “On the Impossible Past” is 13 songs total, and maybe 2 songs from being a perfect album.  It’s pretty good.  

Music Spotlight: Billy Talent – Dead Silence

    I may sound old when with a few of these comments that I may utter in this post, but today’s music rarely impresses me.  Sure there are solid albums released on and off by both older artists and new, but I haven’t run into an album that I simply couldn’t stop listening to in some time.
    I grew up listening to punk music in an era where “punk was dead”, but it actually was in a new prime.  My time was not the Ramones/Sex Pistols era, but the flourishing Epitaph years with bands putting out albums in their peak, bands like Bad Religion, Pennywise, NOFX, Rancid, even earlier Offspring.  The bar is always set high for me when it came to newer punk bands, which is why I rarely find anything that impresses me.  Billy Talent has always been amazing.  From their earlier album “Billy Talent” along with “Billy Talent II” and “Billy Talent III”, they have mastered their sound over the years and take it a step further in their newest release, “Dead Silence”.   I have not been able to go more than a few days without putting this album on at least sometime during the day and many of your lovely shirt orders I have processed while rocking out to it.
    The album has a different sound then the previous albums, still blasting you with their power riffs and harmony, but adding darker elements that the previous albums didn’t have.  They also changed up the harmonizing of the vocals, often at times sounding similar to the harmonizing that System of a Down used to do.
   This album is great from start to finish and I highly recommend it, especially if you have thoughts about music similar to mine.
