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

Simon H., Tuesday, 2 January 2018 18:34 (six months ago) Permalink

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 (six 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 (six 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 (six 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 (six months ago) Permalink

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

two weeks pass...

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

ooh i like them!

That Tiny Moving Parts song wasn't bad, closer to what I'm looking for

Thank you for showing me Closer. Loving this so much

gman59, Thursday, 25 January 2018 01:38 (five 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'm hopeful they'll get back together at some point (unless you're about to tell me I shouldn't be)

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

actually the album is pretty good the whole way through!

my favorite screamo song of the year is the last minute or so this all-screaming version of the Lady Bird trailer

I do wish the TMP album were a touch more ambitious overall a la "Warm Hand Splash" but it is certainly v solid

Simon H., Monday, 5 February 2018 22:08 (five months ago) Permalink

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)

Enjoyed the last Runaway Brother album then kinda forgot about it quickly, but I'm looking forward to the new one. Some promising early tracks

Simon H., Thursday, 8 February 2018 14:47 (five months ago) Permalink

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.

for those so inclined

don't mind if i do!

I just listened to their whole album and really enjoyed it.

No purposes. Sounds. (Sund4r), Saturday, 10 February 2018 23:09 (five months ago) Permalink

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

Holy shit, the closing track!!!

the Dashboard Album is not good.

lol i like it. particularly "About Us" and the single ("Heart Beat Here"). a couple other tracks already growing on me.

has a few tracks I liked yeah but overall idk.

just noticed that the PBtT album is available as a $1-or-more digital download from Bandcamp, with a special offer:

They must have multiple vocalists? The guy on "Wales" is a dead ringer for Bry Webb.

i think it's all the one dude

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Thursday, 28 June 2018 18:51 (two weeks ago) Permalink

yeah it's the same guy! he has a bizarre range; there are moments on the new record where he sounds like matt berninger and gord downie combined

super weird, also made me realize I really miss the constantines

For anyone interested, this excellent live Restorations set features most of their best older tunes plus provides a great view of their instrumentation (incl. one main vocalist, two backing, & drummer making drummer faces).

despite really liking the band I've never been able to shake the view that they basically come off like a bunch of dads who bought cool equipment with money from their day jobs and somehow made v good grownup dad-indie rock

winter wheat? it's great

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Saturday, 30 June 2018 22:38 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Winter Wheat is wonderful. Samson is a terrific lyricist.

Digging that Charmer record. Good looking out. Really does scratch a very specific itch.

john's put out TWO solo records guys!

sean gramophone, Wednesday, 4 July 2018 14:23 (one week ago) Permalink

the first one is less good than winter wheat iirc

flamenco blorf (BradNelson), Wednesday, 4 July 2018 14:42 (one week ago) Permalink

maaaybe less emo than before (hence why I bumped the indiepop thread initially) but the new Trust Fund is so good https://trustfund.bandcamp.com

imago, Thursday, 5 July 2018 11:02 (one week ago) Permalink

the new Mom Jeans throws in just enough fun surprises (guitar heroics, horns, multipart songs) to distinguish itself

Simon H., Friday, 6 July 2018 12:33 (one week ago) Permalink

The first John K Samson album has The Last And, a Virtute-level hearttugger, inspired by The Simpsons' Krabappel/Skinner romance. Stylus has an article about some of that album's song origins. A favorite lyricist, love his small details and viewpoints.

still can't get past the Thrice guy's Grohly vox tbh

some cool riffs tho

Simon H., Monday, 9 July 2018 21:58 (one week ago) Permalink

his vocals don't read as grohly to me but i sorta get what you mean anyway

princess of hell (BradNelson), Monday, 9 July 2018 22:18 (one week ago) Permalink

I lost track of Thrice once they took their proggy turn. I should revisit some of that stuff. I feel more open to that kind of thing than I was when it came out initially.

husked, tonal wails (irrational), Tuesday, 10 July 2018 14:34 (six days ago) Permalink

does that mean you haven't heard vheissu or beggars? bc those are their best. (beggars is kind of a "have our cake and eat it too" recession from prog while the songs get deeper and darker still)

princess of hell (BradNelson), Tuesday, 10 July 2018 20:30 (six days ago) Permalink

I listened to vheissu and didn't like it at the time but could probably revisit. I was a really big The Artist and The Ambulance guy. A listened to the one after Vheissu and small bits and pieces after that. You very rarely steer me wrong Brad, so I'll give em all another chance.
