sad new emo year!!

Pianos Become the Teeth and Tiny Moving Parts have new ones out soonish

lmao at the ersatz Eno/SotL ending to the new Rosenstock record, bless his heart

POST- is fine but not really close to being as great as WORRY., it doesn't have the same sheer density of hooks

ufo, Wednesday, 3 January 2018 07:42 (eight months ago) Permalink

yeah the only two songs that really grab me in the worry way are the two epics. i also love "yr throat"

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Wednesday, 3 January 2018 08:44 (eight months ago) Permalink

I really like the two quasi-ballads, "TV Stars" (despite its weirdly arbitrary chorus) and "9/10", which actually got me a little teary on first listen. Definitely a transitional record, which is easy to get away with when you release an album every 12-15 months.

Simon H., Wednesday, 3 January 2018 14:48 (eight months ago) Permalink

"it's not like any other job I know / if you're a piece of shit they don't let you go" is a good of-the-moment lyric

Simon H., Wednesday, 3 January 2018 14:52 (eight months ago) Permalink

Sounds great so far. It doesn't build and flow as seamlessly as WORRY, but I like all the songs individually.

OK, the Tiny Moving Parts song released today ("Warm Hand Splash") is *fantastic*

Thank you for showing me Closer. Loving this so much

gman59, Thursday, 25 January 2018 01:38 (seven months ago) Permalink

I'm liking Closer too; can't escape the irony that the chorus of the track they've set to play first is "All I want is something familiar" bc yeah this sounds familiar! In a good way!

based on my many listens to "Charisma" I have decided that PBtT's David Haik is the most overperforming drummer in emo (in a good way)

new Brian Fallon is out today, he's (unsurprisingly) gone even more retro and not really connected to anything even emo-adjacent at this point but it's not bad!

new Dashboard is out too for those so inclined. There's also an OK new Wonder Years single - album's out in April.

Everything in this thread is absolutely beautiful. Have been loving the Tiny Moving Parts, Closer, Jeff Rosenstock, Runaway Brother (who I'd never heard of before, so thank you Evan R), Senses Fail...all of it!

This is a really richly produced sort of emogaze by 'Snape', who don't seem to have released much else before this. The whole thing sounds great, but try track 5 for something instantly loveable.

Emo is sometimes a hard sell for me but pretty much every Snape track has me saying things like 'whoa, this is great!' or 'this sounds like Adam & Eve-era Catherine Wheel!' so yeah

anyway they dropped a surprise ep today that’s basically just as good as the album that comes out in early october

princess of hell (BradNelson), Friday, 17 August 2018 08:15 (one month ago) Permalink

i think the tracklist for the album is totally amazing

1. 9:27a.m., 7/29
2. Julia (or, 'Holy to the LORD' on the Bells of Horses)
3. Another Head for Hydra
4. [dormouse sighs]
5. Winter Solstice
6. Flee, Thou Matadors!
7. Tortoises All the Way Down
8. 2,459 Miles
9. Wendy & Betsy
10. New Wine, New Skins
11. Michael, Row Your Boat Ashore
12. Break on Through (to the Other Side) [pt. Two]

i should make a thread for it at this point but i'm p sure it'd sink like a stone

princess of hell (BradNelson), Friday, 17 August 2018 12:05 (one month ago) Permalink

Catching up on everything itt since the end of March and I am having the best time! Other highlights so far: Hopesfall, Charmer and Oso Oso (I like my emo as unambiguous as possible).

That new Ostraca EP is sounding wonderful too. They were high up my metal ballot last year and I expect will be on there again.

Brad, et al: Last night I listened to an album, Communication Breaks by Track Star, which I adored back in the day but had forgotten about for over a decade, and it rocked me. But judging by its YT views, it's all but forgotten by everyone. Track Star was Wyatt from Aislers Set and a friend. It's punky emo-y stuff with embittered lyrics (that also manage to be witty and winsome) and an awesome warbly piano-y guitar tone (on the lead guitar) that i love. Overall reminds me of (unsurprisingly) Henry's Dress but less outright punk. I'd like to know what you guys think. From 1999 I think. (Sorry if this thread is just supposed to be new stuff. Is it??)

The album is on YT. I'll post the opener

Faith/Void is album of the year, easily.

And 'Theme from "Embrace Nothingness" (part two)' is fucking everything. Straight to the gut. Anthemic.

It reminds me hardcore of Desaparecidos, especially the vocals from 2.29 on goddamn... My emo-scope may be that of a novice, but it's a compliment ok? Song of the year. Fuck.
