Forever Broken turns 20!

“Dexter Danger? What a name, I love it. Well, Dexter Danger is a band that plays California pop punk. The one thing that sets them apart from the rest of those bands is lead singer Aymen Trouble’s nasaly yet extremely catchy voice. He has one of those voices that sticks in your head and you can’t help but sing along. On “Forever Broken” they give us 12 fast paced songs. Like I said these are incredibly poppy songs that stick in your head like gum on the bottom of your shoe. The best songs on the release are “The Second I Asked For” which has a kick-ass drum beat at one part and “View Her Discretion” which starts off with some distorted vocals and then blends into a catchy chorus and some vocal harmonies that this band pulls of very well. This is by far way better than any pop punk that you are going to buy from a label like Drive-Thru. I give this band a lot of credit for putting together such a solid recording without the backing of a label. Certainly that won’t be the case for long with their loyal local following and a sound that has been sweeping the pop charts lately these guys are sure to have some offers to be deciding over shortly.”

Hellafornia turns 16!

“The Bay Area’s Dexter Danger pump out a high-energy power-pop with a loud, brash and youthful exuberance that makes one want to jump around. With two EP’s and one full-length CD under their belts, this SF quartet has just come out with a new LP, “Hellafornia”, a panoply of loud, guitar-driven punk-pop (or pop-punk), with a tight, slick studio finish. Already a favorite on the Bay Area’s LIVE 105 (the KROQ of the North), Dexter Danger, no doubt, hope to broaden that airplay to your neck of the woods, and why not? The well-crafted pop-songs on “Hellafornia” show a potential for wide acceptance by teenagers everywhere through a combination of heavy-rotation, touring and word-of-mouth. Check ‘em out when they come to your town and you’ll be jumping up and down too!”
