It was muddy as hell at that first day of Riot Fest ’14. Walking between stages was like walking on black ice, but way messier if you actually fell. I made it to the Rock Stage safely and mostly clean (RIP shoes) in time to catch Glassjaw’s set. First time I’ve seen these guys in nearly a decade and they definitely rocked my face off. It was totally worth walking through ankle deep mud to see them, and damnit! I’d do it again in a heartbeat; those tunes and Daryl’s dance moves had me falling in love.

Arsonists Get All The Girls have had a great 2011 releasing their fourth studio album Motherland on Century Media Records, playing some festivals and hitting the road on some sweet tours. Guitarist Jaeson Bardoni recently took some time out of his busy holiday scheduale to exclusively tell PureGrainAudio what he considers to be the 10 albums of 2011. Check it out below.
