This year’s Skate and Surf Festival will be the third since its revival in 2013. With performances from the likes of Fall Out Boy, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, and A Day To Remember, the past two years have proven why Skate and Surf should be a staple to kick-off your summer, and it's looking like 2015 has a line-up that shouldn’t be missed out on either.

The Asbury Park, New Jersey-based fest will be taking place on May 16 and May 17, and it’s chock full of some of the hottest name in the genre, and even a couple reunions of bands that the genre has desperately been missing. 2014 saw the reunions of legendary pop-punk band Midtown (Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship) and alt-rockers Saosin, featuring the addition of ex-member and current vocalist of Circa Survive, Anthony Green. It’s only fitting that Skate and Surf one-ups their reunions now, but let’s take it day-by-day and give the lowdown on the headliners and notable bands for the packed weekend.

Ben Walton's Top Albums Of 2014


Grant Nicholas Beck The Gaslight Anthem Ok Go Manic Street Preachers Tim Wheeler We Cut Corners

Grant Nicholas - Yorktown Heights
10) Grant Nicholas - Yorktown Heights
Feeder's Grant Nicholas went down the familiar lead-singer-does-a-solo-album route this year, and the results weren't too bad in the end. Yorktown Heights is a more sombre and acoustic take on the recognisable sounds of his regular band but there is still plenty of bite and energy on tracks like 'Joan of Arc' and 'Time Stood Still'. On Yorktown Heights, Nicholas proved he could pen a tune with more emotional depth than anything about a CD player player player player player.

CJ Wildheart - Mable
9) CJ Wildheart - Mable
Not exactly a surprise that a member of The Wildhearts did a solo album this year, but CJs first solo work in seven years is an absolute mother of a sonic gut punch. The power pop blitzkrieg comes thick and fast with songs like 'Better Late Than Never', 'Devil' and the album highlight 'Vitriol'. CJ took the opportunity of his second solo outing to prove that The Wildhearts was never a one man show.

Beck - Morning Phase
8) Beck - Morning Phase
2014 saw the welcome return of the musical equivalent of Willy Wonka, Beck. Morning Phase revisited the acoustic sounds of his seminal 2003 album Sea Change, with an added dash of optimism. The four years Beck took out between this and his last studio album obviously did him some good as Morning Phase features some of his best songs, such as 'Blue Moon', 'Waking Light' and the gorgeous 'Heart Is A Drum'.

New Orleans' favourite Halloween festival the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience is back in its fourteenth year bringing you the true meaning of rock 'n' roll plus a special appearance from one of the city's favourite music veterans.

Voodoo Fest hits City Park every year on the weekend closest to Halloween which this year is November 1st - 3rd. It made its debut in 1999 with the likes of Wyclef Jean and the Refugee All-Stars, The Roots and, of course, New Orleans' own blues pioneer Dr. John - aka The Night Tripper - who makes a grand return to the event this year only months after landing his sixth Grammy award for his album 'Locked Down'. Long may he remain the epitome of the city's spectacular music scene!

A Week In Music, Depeche Mode Back With New Album, The Gaslight Anthem Storm The Boards, Have Coldplay Released The Best Album Ever?

Albums of note… In 2013, the apparent year of the comeback, Depeche Mode made a mini-one of their own, with their first album in four years Delta Machine. Dave Gahan’s still at the vocal helm and the group still enjoy looking at the darker side of pop. Something they’re still doing with great success according to our writer Dom Gourlay, who surmised “'Delta Machine' is a worthy comeback that while not quite hitting the peaks conquered so magnificently by 'Black Celebration', 'Violator' and 'Songs Of Faith And Devotion' back in the day, still sits comfortably in the upper quartile of Depeche Mode's finest releases to date.”

Another gaining the love of Contactmusic this week is Josh Kumra who released his debut LP Good Things Come To Those Don’t Wait. Give he’s only about 20/21 himself, it seems like he’s taken the title of his album to heart, and this Sony release looks set to make him a star early on in his career. Our man Jim Pusey reckoned “At its heart, Good Things Come To Those Who Don't Wait is a solid singer songwriter effort. It elevates itself beyond that by successfully dabbling in a number of musical styles along the way, while ensuring that Josh doesn't ever sound out of his depth. Certainly one of his strengths is his voice, and he gives himself ample opportunity to showcase that here too.”
