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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (four 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!

i had no idea that the dangerous summer reunited and recorded a new album? so far it's great, but their albums tend to start off great and drift into whatever

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

This is really good - this might sound weird but it sounds to me like a less dramatic / appealingly lower-stakes nu-Brand New album (and without the baggage)

Simon H., Wednesday, 4 April 2018 13:53 (two months ago) Permalink

not weird at all, dude's voice is def in that j*sse l*cey region

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 April 2018 15:45 (two months ago) Permalink

someone on a different message board pointed this out but they sound less like brand new than they do other bands that have been relentlessly compared to brand new (crime in stereo, "colored out" reminds me of driver friendly)

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 April 2018 15:46 (two months ago) Permalink

I feel a bit bad for dissing the Wonder Years album in the way I did since I read the p4k review (which highlighted some of the inspirations behind the record) but oh well

If anyone's had a screamo itch recently, you could do a hell of a lot worse than the Storm{O}'s Ere.

Oh that's weird, last time I was at my parents' house I took back The Satellite Years CD that I bought when I was young because I couldn't remember what the hell it was. It holds up quite well I think despite the post-rock and 'core elements jarring a bit at times.

Neither of those new songs do much for me but it's nice they're still around!

New interview/feature in Stereogum makes it sound like quite something.

While the title track and “Bastardizer” are laser-lit, howl-and-point anthems that could conceivably elevate them to the status of alt-emo festival staples like Manchester Orchestra, Circa Survive, and pre-downfall Brand New — all of whom they’ve opened for — there’s not much contemporary comparison to the nine-minute ambient odyssey “Five Cups” or the IDM-goes-post-hardcore frenzy of “Gameshark” or “Heartbeats” merging swirling house rhythms with atmospheric post-rock guitars.

Simon H., Tuesday, 19 June 2018 18:04 (five days ago) Permalink

pre-downfall Brand New

certainly a way to put this

psyched for the record though, it is getting majorly hyped
