Those who remember the 80´s and how the music made you happy, also noticed how depressive the grunge era was in the 90´s. The dark ages of rock if you ask me, but then pop punk came along with Blink 182 starting it all and rock music became fun again. Now, over a decade later, there are still new pop punk bands poppin up in every corner of the world like the Swedish Dorm Patrol. Their debut album "Big Apple 3 A.M" is produced by Erik Höjden of Kid Down and features a guest appearance from Nikola Sarcevic of Millencolin on the single "Hooked for life". The songs on this 11 track album put me in a good mood straight away and I especially dig "Alright" feat Eric Höjden, that one is super catchy. "Riot" is another great upbeat rocker and I bet a band like All Time Low would be proud over the song "Straight out". Let the party begin!
