Armed with crayons and acting like heroes, today's Prime Cuts playlist asks the musical question: "What's left of you when you work hard and die in the office?" [caption id="attachment_82977" align="alignnone" width="385" caption="Armed With Crayons"][/caption] We picked [mp3com-artist]Armed With Crayons[/mp3com-artist] out of a lineup 'cuz we liked their name and we liked the name of their song: "If He Ticks, Clock Him." Then we listened and liked their music: half punk, half thrash, half attitude (which makes them 50% better than most bands). Armed With Crayons are from the hills of Loveland Colorado, themselves admitting they're all about "catchy choruses, upbeat songs and, of course, breakdowns." @armedwithcrayons [mp3com-download url="" artist="Armed With Crayons" song="If He Ticks, Clock Him" expiration="03/31/2012" email="none" label="Armed With Crayons"/] [caption id="attachment_82978" align="alignnone" width="385" caption="Such Gold"][/caption] On the other side of the country -- namely the balmy climes of Rochester, New York -- we found "melodic hardcore" band [mp3com-artist]Such Gold[/mp3com-artist]. Consisting of screamer Ben Koti, guitar slingers Nate Derby and Skyler Sarkis and a pair of Devons on bass and guitar, Such Gold are thrashing about on Mighty Than Sword Records these days. They're playnig tonight at the Bug Jar in Rochacha...should be a loud affair. @suchgold [mp3com-download url="" artist="Such Gold" song="What's Left Of You" expiration="03/31/2012" email="none" label="Such Gold"/] [mp3com-artist]Acting Like Heroes[/mp3com-artist] are a four piece pop punk band out of Moscow (Russia, that is). Just over a year old, vocalist/bassist Sam Kuprianov, vocalist/guitarist Mark Gaidansky, lead guitarist and back-up vocalist Yegor Sakharin, and drummer Sergei Mordovchenko have one goal: Turn influences like All Time Low, A Day to Remember and Four Year Strong into music they always wanted to hear, a blasting upbeat pop-punk with heavy riffs and energetic, positive vocals. They've done their job and so have I. Time to leave the office!
