Rolling Stone “50 Best Albums of 2018”

Opening on a crystalline clean-tone electric guitar strummed at a fervent clip, we hear confident lyrical declarations of “advancing up this road” set to brisk drums and nuanced guitar leads, followed by a resolve not to fall prey to insecurities or distractions.

Hop Along - Painted Shut

2015, MasteringRyan SchwabeComment

The songs on the second album by the Philadelphia band Hop Along seem to have come whirling out of a fairytale, visceral but ornate, outside reality but still scarred by it. Their energy comes from punk but their style comes from somewhere older and more obscure—a Victorian attic, maybe, or the kind of basement where the band’s singer Frances Quinlan got turned onto punk in the first place.

Hop Along - Get Disowned

2012, MasteringRyan SchwabeComment

This album came as a complete and total surprise to me. Having never heard of them prior to a friend’s constant raving that this is the best album of the past 10 years, I decided that I should give Get Disowned a spin. While I can’t say that this is the best album of the past 10 years, it certainly is the best thing that I have heard in 2012, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it ended up topping my end of the year list.
