kicking the year off with creeper, who will likely be fucking huge

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:25 (eleven months ago) link

both new Creeper songs are immense, glad they now have the widescreen production they deserve

really digging the Cayetana album, super concise lil gems

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:26 (eleven months ago) link

wait, cayetana album? didn't they break up

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:27 (eleven months ago) link

ahhh apparently it's a reissue of their 2014 album it's dated jan 2020 on Spotify. anyway it's real good!

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:28 (eleven months ago) link

oh nervous like me is definitely a very good record

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:29 (eleven months ago) link

"hot dad calendar" and "black hills" forever

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:29 (eleven months ago) link

i'm also guessing it was reissued bc it looks like tiny engines is in trouble

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:30 (eleven months ago) link

something about the new Creeper songs and potentially getting a new MCR record just feels like (wonderful) overkill to me. we're not worthy!

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:30 (eleven months ago) link

also stoked for: Ratboys, Worriers, Pears, and fuckin FIREWORKS (proper album rollout when)

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:36 (eleven months ago) link

can confirm the ratboys record is fuckin awesome

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:37 (eleven months ago) link

lastly I mentioned it on the punk/non-indie thread but the Chubby and the Gang record is melodic enough for pop-punkers to roll with, I think

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:39 (eleven months ago) link

oh speaking of bands that don't quite fit this thread but i'm posting them anyway, is anybody here a bad enough dude to be down with knock over city

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 24 January 2020 19:43 (eleven months ago) link

this is great, gruff delivery reminds me of my beloved drug church a bit

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 24 January 2020 23:04 (eleven months ago) link

y'all

this Ratboys album

i thought they were gonna be better than most of their contemporaries based on GN and this record delivers on that

alpine static, Wednesday, 29 January 2020 22:19 (eleven months ago) link

otm, it's a goddamn achievement, i may start a thread

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 30 January 2020 00:03 (eleven months ago) link

it isn't out for a month though! is that going too far

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 30 January 2020 00:03 (eleven months ago) link

i guess i do that all the time but it feels mean when i've heard the album before everyone else lol

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 30 January 2020 00:18 (eleven months ago) link

For the love of God, people, go see Drug Church live.

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Monday, 3 February 2020 05:21 (eleven months ago) link

Thrice with mewithoutYou, Drug Church and Holy Fawn

So unfair, America.

Meanwhile, the new Spanish Love Songs album is killing me.

i filed blurbs for this a year ago and kinda refuse to look at it directly but enjoy

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 13 February 2020 18:31 (eleven months ago) link

how come?

alpine static, Thursday, 13 February 2020 20:44 (eleven months ago) link

vulture sat on it for a year which diminished my enthusiasm for it, but i'm glad it exists now. also i have no idea what my blurbs are like anymore

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 13 February 2020 21:51 (eleven months ago) link

they're good, Brad.

husked, tonal wails (irrational), Friday, 14 February 2020 15:56 (eleven months ago) link

if anyone is nostalgic for catchy hairpin-turn pop-punk, I recommend the new Pears singles (and their last album and split LP with Direct Hit, for that matter).

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 21 February 2020 17:09 (ten months ago) link

oh hai epic new Hopesfall single

https://youtu.be/ft8jMLJuAC0

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Monday, 24 February 2020 17:50 (ten months ago) link

lol i was just about to post that

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 24 February 2020 17:51 (ten months ago) link

seriously thinking about hitting up Furnace Fest (unless someone can recommend a better emo/punk fest this summer/fall)

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Monday, 24 February 2020 17:53 (ten months ago) link

ha, I too came here to post the Hopesfall

Dinsdale, Monday, 24 February 2020 20:14 (ten months ago) link

i require more eight minute space emo epics

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 24 February 2020 20:15 (ten months ago) link

I was really hoping the Hum reunion was going to result in new music, so I'll have to settle for these guys

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Monday, 24 February 2020 20:27 (ten months ago) link

btw stream the goddamn ratboys album here http://www.mtv.com/news/3152930/ratboys-printers-devil-interview-stream/

who could forget dear ratboys

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 24 February 2020 23:37 (ten months ago) link

yo brad any idea when they're gonna properly announce that new Fireworks album

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 14:45 (ten months ago) link

i wish i knew

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 14:55 (ten months ago) link

simon have you heard the loathe record

it's more appropriate for the metal thread than here but also, in a way, it isn't

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:54 (ten months ago) link

YES it's really good! I actually thought about bumping one of the Deftones threads because parts are almost criminally similar and it should appeal to anyone who's impatiently waiting for the new album. I'm not convinced by all of the djent-y bits but I'm impressed with the scope.

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:56 (ten months ago) link

I thought simon had bumped this thread telling you all the Pup album placed in metal poll

Oor Neechy, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 16:57 (ten months ago) link

oh I knew that was going to happen (one of the reasons I was fine w not voting for it)

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 17:04 (ten months ago) link

another thing that could qualify for the metal thread: the new envy record is uh so fucking good???

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 25 February 2020 21:11 (ten months ago) link

it really is. a lot more metal than Pup though

gman59, Tuesday, 25 February 2020 21:43 (ten months ago) link

It is v v good, feel like it flew under the radar. The curse of consistency.

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 28 February 2020 16:07 (ten months ago) link

the least exhilarating of the singles so far but still really nice.

bold caucasian eroticism (Simon H.), Friday, 28 February 2020 16:09 (ten months ago) link

Envy usually make the metal poll. in fact a single made last years iirc

Oor Neechy, Friday, 28 February 2020 16:14 (ten months ago) link

I like this recent Ratboys album (posting here b/c it's mentioned above; tho I wouldn't have thought to classify it in one of the thread title's genres).

Some of it reminds a little of old-school Sleepyhead (that dreamy, love-rock feel)... some tracks also have a bit of a Big Thief sound, like if their first album had been even poppier (though it may be the singer's vocal tone that's largely leading me there).

tamagotchi revival artist (morrisp), Wednesday, 4 March 2020 18:18 (ten months ago) link

...actually, no, it's more than just her voice. The guitar sound too

tamagotchi revival artist (morrisp), Wednesday, 4 March 2020 18:21 (ten months ago) link

ratboys are kind of part of the "scene." if i've ever seen a band play the fest, they belong in this thread

new Partner single close to a return to 1st LP form

warning for the general emo thread population, the acceptance record may exceed the limits of earnestness normally tolerated by the emo thread

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 14 October 2020 20:28 (three months ago) link

i listened to the black foxxes record twice in a row today, it's the real deal

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 14 October 2020 22:01 (three months ago) link

I'm generally a big fan of most anything Brad recommends but this:

and the final track eventually works itself into a gish-era-sp-type jam

reallllllly sold me.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Wednesday, 14 October 2020 22:03 (three months ago) link

listened to that acceptance album yesterday, thx brad. i think its ok, about half good. i get a lot of killers sound from it.

Spottie, Thursday, 15 October 2020 17:30 (three months ago) link

about half good is where i landed as well, but that half is real good

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 15 October 2020 17:33 (three months ago) link

dark age through wildfires is the highlight for me.

Spottie, Thursday, 15 October 2020 18:28 (three months ago) link

The Black Foxxes album isn't out yet, is it?

New Touchรฉ Amorรฉ is really hitting the spot!

Ilxor in the streets, Scampo in the sheets (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 16 October 2020 08:59 (three months ago) link

An emotional rock trio from Devon eh

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 09:05 (three months ago) link

Devonians have feelings too

Ilxor in the streets, Scampo in the sheets (Le Bateau Ivre), Friday, 16 October 2020 09:14 (three months ago) link

black foxxes record is out oct 30

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 16 October 2020 12:44 (three months ago) link

you'd best have sold it accurately lol

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 14:26 (three months ago) link

lj you should listen to "badlands" and find out

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:00 (three months ago) link

Oh this vocalist!!

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:33 (three months ago) link

This is one of the most instantly arresting vocal presences in a while. The music is that good 90s stuff, as advertised

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:34 (three months ago) link

Holy shit what has this turned into

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:38 (three months ago) link

exactly

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:54 (three months ago) link

so the best two emo bands in the world have 'fox' in the name then

Chip-vill-A (imago), Friday, 16 October 2020 23:55 (three months ago) link

looking forward to "badlands" placing in the 77 and everyone getting mad at me

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Saturday, 17 October 2020 00:41 (three months ago) link

I will join that quest

lol i noted that one too

Chip-vill-A (imago), Saturday, 17 October 2020 09:31 (three months ago) link

finally got around to the touchรฉ amorรฉ, this is fucking great

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 22:45 (three months ago) link

i really liked stage four but this feels like the big leap

Ross Robinson, emo king

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Tuesday, 20 October 2020 22:54 (three months ago) link

I'll stand behind that. Relationship of Command, Burn Piano Island, and now Lament. He has a lot of credits under his belt that I don't care for but its undeniable that he had a major role in some of my absolute favorite albums ever made.

gman59, Wednesday, 21 October 2020 19:36 (two months ago) link

soupy from the wonder years confirmed the fireworks album is coming out this year. i sure hope so

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Sunday, 25 October 2020 16:55 (two months ago) link

soupy from the wonder years had best not be lying

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Sunday, 25 October 2020 22:51 (two months ago) link

brad you were not lying about the Black Foxxes album! what a huge step up for them.

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Thursday, 29 October 2020 17:10 (two months ago) link

Is it out? I'll happily listen to Badlands on repeat for 50m if not

imago, Thursday, 29 October 2020 19:25 (two months ago) link

Oh I have to wait 4 hours, grr

imago, Thursday, 29 October 2020 19:36 (two months ago) link

Yeah, this is great, even if Badlands towers above all

imago, Friday, 30 October 2020 11:19 (two months ago) link

weirdly I'm only not totally sold on the epic closer? otherwise this is definitely scratching the neo-90s-altrock itch that Wolf Alice does for me

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Saturday, 31 October 2020 22:44 (two months ago) link

inner space rock

imago, Sunday, 1 November 2020 05:56 (two months ago) link

it is a bit Radiohead for me to completely love it but I can see why Brad likes Panic so much, haha. And that last minute is an almighty payoff

the first four tracks are my favourite stretch because I'm an instant gratification junkie lol

imago, Sunday, 1 November 2020 15:22 (two months ago) link

but that was the case with the Foxing album as well and I ended up loving all of it

imago, Sunday, 1 November 2020 15:23 (two months ago) link

the fox bands need to do an album together

imago, Sunday, 1 November 2020 15:23 (two months ago) link

I also really like the closing track but my favourite bit of it is the songy opening stretch

imago, Sunday, 1 November 2020 15:46 (two months ago) link

two weeks pass...

update: I have now listened to Black Foxxes a frankly embarrassing number of times

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 14:18 (two months ago) link

^^^same

imago, Tuesday, 17 November 2020 16:55 (two months ago) link

Is there not a way to get a physical version of that Black Foxxes record in the US? Even when I go to their website and click on the literal pictures of the LP or CD versions in their shop, it kicks me to a link that only takes me to streaming/digital ways to get it.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 17 November 2020 17:18 (two months ago) link

it appears we have not talked about this band in this thread:

https://clearbody.bandcamp.com/album/one-more-day-2

album out Friday, good chunky rumbling, slightly dreamy punk/emo with vocals that remind me of other (older) bands but i can't quite place ... especially the use of looooooong, held out notes/syllables. i feel like there's a really close 80s/90s analog, but i'm having trouble figuring it out.

alpine static, Tuesday, 1 December 2020 16:31 (one month ago) link

a very fun and economical pop-punk/emo album from this year I had missed: Teenage Halloween's s/t

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyT1iHP28q0

it bangs for thee (Simon H.), Tuesday, 8 December 2020 19:28 (one month ago) link

four weeks pass...

Also no mention itt of this catchy punky poppy record that is seriously growing on me 9 months after its release:

https://hotmulligan.bandcamp.com/album/youll-be-fine

Also ... did I miss the 2021 thread?

alpine static, Tuesday, 5 January 2021 22:58 (two weeks ago) link

Not sure of the protocol with the jump to the new thread, but finally got around to the Black Foxxes record. This is terrific. I haven't kept up with everything itt, but this and the new Ratboys records were huge discoveries for me this year thanks to you folks.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 20:52 (one week ago) link

the protocol is to wait for brad to do it lol

stylish but illegal (Simon H.), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 20:54 (one week ago) link

Haha I just meant whether to continue talk about 2020 releases in the old thread.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 12 January 2021 20:58 (one week ago) link

i think when all is said and done i've decided the Ratboys record is the best emo thread record of 2020
