like, *really* into it

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 15 January 2019 16:58 (one year ago) link

Yeah, first listen I liked it a lot, second listen I thought it was too "rock" but then third listen it was better again. Hooks and riffs are all super fun.

lotta emo bands threatened to be the emo radiohead back in the day and i think copeland are actually doing it

copeland record is gonna be amazing i know it already.

anybody listen to the pedro album yet?

marcos smart (Spottie), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 19:02 (one year ago) link

not yet but i've heard very good things from one of my friends/a fellow ilxor, who called it bazan's best since curse your branches

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 19:04 (one year ago) link

promising. im gonna go in on the npr stream today

marcos smart (Spottie), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 19:07 (one year ago) link

ok yeah confirmed, the pedro album is pretty awesome, i love "powerful taboo"

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 19:38 (one year ago) link

and it ends incredibly strongly, last three tracks seem like the best

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 20:06 (one year ago) link

not really on topic but sort of on topic, but rip mary oliver, it seems beside the point to associate a song inspired by her work with her but i do

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoLDz4nCeAM

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Thursday, 17 January 2019 16:34 (one year ago) link

can confirm the pedro album sounds good. def gains steam (as much steam as a pedro album can gain) as it goes. i really liked circle k and quietest friend on first pass, and the final track for sure. i do wish his vox were recessed just a tad more in the mix. i have the same complaint with most of his solo stuff as well. im definitely going to spend more time with it when its released tomorrow.

scanned the tracklist of the Copeland album and "As Above, So Alone" is an A+ emo song title

i am a huge fan of copeland in slow jam mode, wow

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Friday, 18 January 2019 16:06 (one year ago) link

yesss

marcos smart (Spottie), Friday, 18 January 2019 21:07 (one year ago) link

I'm enjoying the new Forests album. It's a little midwest, mathy sound and most of the songs end stronger than they begin.

Beyond excited for the new PUP album - The Dream is Over is one of my absolute favourite pop punk releases of the decade.

tangenttangent, Saturday, 19 January 2019 12:08 (one year ago) link

this Forests record is cool, thx tt!!

resident hack (Simon H.), Saturday, 19 January 2019 17:31 (one year ago) link

they sound like a scrappier Tiny Moving Parts

who, speaking of which, have a new double a-side out this week

resident hack (Simon H.), Saturday, 19 January 2019 17:34 (one year ago) link

They do! The TMP single is lovely as well. And Radar State is sounding wonderful!

tangenttangent, Saturday, 19 January 2019 20:28 (one year ago) link

well now that i’m really excited for the new copeland record, eat, sleep, repeat and you are my sunshine have finally clicked with me, especially the latter

the American Football song w/ Hayley Williams is out and it's lovely

resident hack (Simon H.), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 15:34 (one year ago) link

^^ absolutely they do, probably moreso than metal

ok so i really regret sleeping on oso oso? i'm working on a t*p s*cr*t emo pr*ject and just heard "reindeer games" and it's the best weezer song i've heard in decades. and i liked the white album

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Thursday, 24 January 2019 14:04 (one year ago) link

i now love every copeland album

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 28 January 2019 18:29 (one year ago) link

copeland ranked:

ixora
you are my sunshine
in motion
eat sleep repeat

it does not seem like such a daunting discography but each record is such a stylistic leap that you tend to dwell on 1-2 at a time

alpine static, Wednesday, 13 November 2019 17:22 (nine months ago) link

this record poured directly out of my head

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 17:26 (nine months ago) link

album of the year

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 17:30 (nine months ago) link

or at least the future me hates me of the year

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 17:31 (nine months ago) link

as much as I like that album I do get a "this is the one right before the amazing one" vibe from it

Simon H., Wednesday, 13 November 2019 18:13 (nine months ago) link

that’s probably/hopefully true

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 13 November 2019 18:38 (nine months ago) link

yeah this is good stuff

in spirit<3

Mordy, Friday, 15 November 2019 20:42 (eight months ago) link

what did u think about the now is then is now releases? i only listened through once but wasn't super blown away...

Mordy, Friday, 15 November 2019 20:44 (eight months ago) link

No, me neither. I think he was quite self aware about how little people seemed to respond to them. It just seemed a very personal mission. The venue tonight is a Catholic Church, which is cool! Aaw Mordy if me and LJ ever come to the US we’ll try to time it with a Dashboard gig.

tangenttangent, Friday, 15 November 2019 20:46 (eight months ago) link

is it a small venue bc he doesn't have such a big following in uk or a big church? when he plays philly/jersey/ny area he always sells out moderate sized venues (sold out two nights in philly during this most recent tour)

Mordy, Friday, 15 November 2019 20:56 (eight months ago) link

i think this is being positioned as emo rap but it sounds like it could be an early 1975 song to me

https://soundcloud.com/postcarcrashscene/is-the-taste-of-him-a-sour-reminder-of-everything-that-went-wrong

J0rdan S., Saturday, 16 November 2019 04:42 (eight months ago) link

or more precisely, what an early 1975 song would've sounded like if lil peep existed before the 1975 did

J0rdan S., Saturday, 16 November 2019 05:35 (eight months ago) link

xp He was doing three nights there and they sold out in minutes! Last time he was over he sold out a large venue.

And speaking of the 1975, apparently Matt Healy joined him on stage the previous night!

Simon H., Thursday, 21 November 2019 17:33 (eight months ago) link

I recently discovered Little Big League and am loving it... totally slept on that, and Japanese Breakfast hasn't hooked me (yet). Any opinions? I know it isn't a 2019 band.

the origami angel record is this thread's album of the year https://origamiangel.bandcamp.com/album/somewhere-city

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 6 December 2019 17:50 (eight months ago) link

holy crow this is fun! "The Title Track"!!

Simon H., Friday, 6 December 2019 20:06 (eight months ago) link

each successive track on this thing = the vince mcmahon reaction meme

Simon H., Friday, 6 December 2019 23:39 (eight months ago) link

i like that OA record, but as long as we're nominating Emo Thread AOTY, i'll nom Oso Oso :) it's damn near perfect

alpine static, Friday, 6 December 2019 23:57 (eight months ago) link

Yeah, this is good. Is "Midwest Emo" really a genre? That's how RYM labels this, though apparently the band is from DC?

o. nate, Saturday, 7 December 2019 03:03 (eight months ago) link

yeah it's a common enough term. the origin of it is that the 90s jangly/mathy second-wave emo scene was most prominent in the us midwest.

ufo, Saturday, 7 December 2019 03:26 (eight months ago) link

after a few more listens i kinda think somewhere city is a modern classic

american bradass (BradNelson), Sunday, 8 December 2019 17:05 (eight months ago) link

I've listened a bunch - it's grown off me a tiny bit just because the vocals and lyrics seem a little undistinguished but they're clearly a hell of a band, I love the video game music influence

Simon H., Monday, 9 December 2019 05:02 (eight months ago) link

Once again something I'd call "emo-adjacent", but on first listen Holy Fawn's Death Spells is kinda scratching my Juno itch, distended and surprisingly aggressive songs with a dense thicket of tones. Not sure yet if the songs are all there but the sound is great. (I guess it was technically issued last year but only made its streaming debut in 2019)

Simon H., Monday, 9 December 2019 13:39 (eight months ago) link

I went from thinking the new Creeper song was a decent teaser to being pretty sure it's one of their very best songs. Them, Foxing and Fireworks are my most anticipated for the '20 edition of this thread

Simon H., Tuesday, 10 December 2019 15:30 (eight months ago) link

Came here to see if anyone was talking about this insane Origami Angel album - ILX never disappoints. They have a Get Up Kids-y energy to them at times. I'm only halfway through my first listen and I am already so excited.

Also Simon otm about Creeper.

tangenttangent, Thursday, 12 December 2019 13:31 (eight months ago) link

origami angel is some top tier motivationcore

Not sure if beach Slang fits the thread but man I got a review copy of the new record and it ain't good.

husked, tonal wails (irrational), Friday, 13 December 2019 16:03 (eight months ago) link

i think i have always posted about them in the rolling emo threads anyway. am unsurprised the album sucks

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 13 December 2019 16:13 (eight months ago) link

I quite liked their first eps and that first record. they've got rid of the hopeful, earnestness that I liked about them and doubled down on rock cliche.

man, i don't "get" the Glass Beach record/love.

i've been listening to their album for what feels like 45 minutes and i'm on track 3

alpine static, Tuesday, 21 January 2020 20:58 (six months ago) link

and i've tried it 3 or 4 times now ... i guess it's not for me, but is for everyone else

one month passes...

I'm a little late on this one, but if you love The Maine or fellow southwesterners Anarbor (their tracks "Freaking Out!" and "Every High Has a Come Down" especially), check out "Twilight (My Heaven) from Philly band Grayscale. This rowdy, driving tune is loaded with those little elements that you'll find in most great songs, like a glorious pre-chorus, a bass-drum fill (!) midway through the chorus amidst the huge harmonies, and a few moments of silence amidst it all; and it just sounds fantastic blasting on your car stereo with the windows down. ("Baby Blue", another standout track of theirs from '19 album Nella Vita, is in the spirit of The 1975's "She's American")
