DEBUT FULL LENGTH. DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE AND SPREAD THE WORD. SHOW YOUR FRIENDS! TELL US WHAT YOU THINK!
Building on the success of the How to Get to Third Base and Nowhere Boy EPs, The Semester Review proudly presents their debut full length studio effort, Going Steady.
After three EPs, a run of California shows, and an expanding fan base, The Semester Review was put on a halt as they figured out where to go next with the band. With no plans to continue the streak of EP releases, Austin suggested the full length idea one night in late August. Josh and Seth also agreed that this was the next step to take and hit the studio the next month to begin to lay down what would become Going Steady.
The studio was built in a garage by Seth’s father, Frank. This album was not only recorded by Josh, Seth, and Austin, but also mixed by the band with help from Frank Ponzo, who also mastered it. After ruling out many songs, the band settled on fifteen to lay down. The album features some songs from previous EPs, which were rerecorded in better quality, the way the band intended them to sound. Along with songs about girls, Josh Reject also makes clear his changing life as he recalls many topics including a friend of the band leaving on his two year mission across the sea and the band’s first time hitting the road on their first tour. With Seth Ponzo and Austin Cooper rounding out the sound, this album stems from three suburban boys who never thought they would make it this far.
This album is what it is—a little over 45 minutes full of honest emotions, yearning for love, and a recollection of experiences. Kick back, press play, and go steady with us.
