Sleep Deprived Music Review: Meet Me At the Altar

Bigger Than Me

Meet Me At The Altar’s EP, Bigger Than Me, has all of the energy that most of us wish we had.

Their style is pop punk. I think they would still be a good band if they went a little more punk or even if they were more pop. They could be successful in whatever genre they choose.

The band name reminds me of that 90s song, “Let’s Get Married.” I wonder if Meet Me At The Altar would ever do a remake. It would probably be cool.

All of the band members are from different states. It’s a miracle that they even met. They are making the long distance band relationship work.

If I listened to this album while working on re-doing the floors, would I make more progress? Totally possible. DIY projects require a lot of energy. Meet Me At The Altar could be the band that gets me through the next few weeks.

Sleep Deprived Music Spotlight: Gold Steps

Gold Steps

I don’t know about you but I kind of love pop-punk bands, like Gold Steps. Whoever does their social media posts, photography and other designs deserve all of the praise and probably a raise. It’s all really well done.

If the band was terrible, I would still visit their pages just to look at the photos. However, the band is not terrible. If anything, they are golden.

At this moment, they are on tour with Calling All Captains and Settle Your Scores. The band has only been together since 2016 so it is so awesome that they are going on tour.

According to their website, they are collaborating with HeartSupport, a nonprofit group that provides mental health and emotional support to music fans. I didn’t think I could love Gold Steps more but they really do have hearts of gold.

Sleep Deprived Music Review: Post Season

postseason

Post Season will be releasing their self-titled second album on July 13. Why yes, it is on Friday the 13th, which is also tomorrow.

The kids are still sleeping. I thought that a pop-punk album would be a good way to wake up at the crack of noon. Post Season has a potty mouth but so do my kids. Sometimes you have to pick your battles and arguing about cursing was not high on the list of priorities. The mom-tras that I tell my kids are more like, “Don’t get pregnant until you’re 30. Don’t do drugs. Don’t be a jerk.”

The other thing that I tell my kids is to figure out what they like or what they want to do in the future. It’s a struggle for a lot of people to get the ambition or the funds to chase their dreams.

Post Season has some of the same struggles. They want to make music and be able to pay the bills. We probably all know people that have the same issue. Our goals do not exactly fit with the real world. Kudos to Post Season for trying to make their end game into their real lives.
