Dylan Baldi is stuck in the 80’s, and not the one with bad hair, tight pants, and that terrible snare drum sound. Come on, Avid Reader, you know me better than that, right? Good, for the last few days I’ve been listening to this album, and all I can think about is Dinosaur Jr., Husker Du or mid-90's Sebadoh. Baldi and company have managed to update that 80’s hardcore sound into the modern era, all the while keeping the angst, intense rhythms, and fuzzed out guitars intact.

With the fourth season of AMC's incredible zombie drama behind us, fans of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead have a lot to consider.

What do we have to look forward to in October? Honestly, your guess is as good as mine at this point. As a big fan of the comics, I'm just surprised at how visceral the series has become.
Undoubtedly one of the most incredible aspects of Season 4 was the
