Sunny Day Real Estate
the Promise Ring
Christie Front Drive
and more, but I can't think!
is one of the greatest albums ever.
I only dabble in the 'mo but also like I hate myself and indian summer
Do you want any good emo or just old emo?
mindset and possibly aesthetic as old emo, rather than the corporate McEmo that myspace and zane lowe have helped inflict on the youth of today
I went off a lot of the Taking Back Sunday, Finch etc emo a couple of years ago, yet I still adore Brand New.
'The Devil and God...' is one of my favourite albums.
.....Anyway I've been there especially
Texas is the reason,
Hot Water Music's first 4 or 5 albums.
Great Cap'n Jazz style stuff. Kitty is one of my favourite songs in years. These guys really know how to play their instruments.
More of the above really, but more twinkly, and not as good (but still fucking TOP. I'm sure they'll get better when they release more stuff).
These guys are actually amazing. Like Don Cab having sex with Funeral Diner or something.
I listened to these guy so much last year. CRITICAL. Every track on on their myspace is brilliant.
So this is basically what Rites of Spring would sound like if they existed just now. First decent thing revelation recs have released in ages. LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN.
Touring here in March. Two guitars and drums. I listen to these guys RELIGIOUSLY.
Take a listen to Captain Fantastic. Sounds like something from a fucking - A split from 1992 or something. They've done a split with End Of a Year which is pure banging.
Best UK emo band? Maybe. Like a mixture of minuteman and the van pelt...or something. They've called it a day for just now though...hopefully not forever =/
Another UK band. One 7" and they've split up. I cry into my pillow and think about girls everytime i listen to.
Also, for good measure, everyone should probably listen to Yaphet Kotto;
Ok, i could do more, but i really need to get back to revision.
track by Street Smart Cyclist is awesome! :D
Emo Diaries compilations from Deep Elm are a good collection of the indie rock end of emo before it started being a catch all term for some dick from blink 182, in a new band, wearing some make up.
Favez - especially gentlemen start your engines
I've gotten a hold of
Colossal 'welcome the problems'
dismemberment plan 'change'
which id both give a big thumbs up to, not sure on the years of either, late 90s i think?
