https://closernyc.bandcamp.com/album/within-one-stem

this new closer album was one of the suggestions in the previous thread; the preview track is one of the best post-hardcore (read: pretty guitar melodies but with only shouting/screaming over it) things i've heard in some time

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 4 February 2021 17:27 (two months ago) link

aaaaaaahhhhhh fireworks!!!!!!!!!

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Thursday, 4 February 2021 17:46 (two months ago) link

i should also rep for this maxshh album despite hating the band name a lot https://maxshh.bandcamp.com/album/feedback-pb

if you persevere beyond the first track you'll understand why

(thanks for the rec alpine static)

kitchen sink emo a la glass beach though also different from that

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 4 February 2021 17:53 (two months ago) link

i almost wrote in the other thread "i didn't really 'get' glass beach, and this is kinda what i wished it sounded like"

alpine static, Thursday, 4 February 2021 19:25 (two months ago) link

hell yeah thanks for posting that closer link Brad.

closer and The Armed are easily my most anticipated albums coming in the near future.

thanks for making a 2021 version of this thread too. sorry for re-posting that above video in 3 different places, just want to keep this one current as 2020 emo fades away

gman59, Thursday, 4 February 2021 19:29 (two months ago) link

so stoked for this Armed album

noticed some writers at some of the bigger websites taking note, too. they're gonna get a lot of love around release date.

alpine static, Thursday, 4 February 2021 19:54 (two months ago) link

about time. I know I vouched for the live show hard in here and some people were disappointed when they went but I still stand by it as one of the best live experiences I've had. part oddball performance art and part hardcore show.

fireworks and the wrens in a tortoise vs dying tortoise race for my heart and deluxe pre-order money

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Friday, 5 February 2021 17:06 (two months ago) link

any heavy hitters we can reasonably actually expect new stuff from this year? only Foxing and Joyce Manor that I know of but there must be others

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Friday, 5 February 2021 17:53 (two months ago) link

also that mackinder ep is fucking great despite not being the new Fireworks album, man that fella is a helluva songwriter

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Friday, 5 February 2021 17:57 (two months ago) link

btw eva from rolo tomassi reportedly has a guest spot on the armed record

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 9 February 2021 02:09 (two months ago) link

God i can't even imagine where rolo tomassi could go after that last album

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Tuesday, 9 February 2021 02:56 (two months ago) link

ok not a 2021 album, but I'm mad that girl friday put out a full length last August and I was not directly notified. it fucking rules

i got the promo this morning and can't imagine there'll be much competition with it for emo album of the year

famous last words i know

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 16 March 2021 15:58 (four weeks ago) link

"eternal you" is totally atdi/trail of dead-brand emo and the rest of the songs are total anthems. "down university" HAS to be the next single

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 16 March 2021 16:06 (four weeks ago) link

more rolling punk/hardcore 2021 than emo pop punk but into this a bunch

funny I heard "mistakes and regrets" the other day and realized that while not really an emo band ToD did write 4 or 5 perfect emo songs xp

digging the gruff vocal style on this:

feel like there's enough emo in the dna of this for this thread

south korean lo-fi shoegaze/emo, reminds me of diary and inlet among many other things

ufo, Thursday, 25 March 2021 12:57 (three weeks ago) link

a similar sense of ambition facing off against lo-fi recording limitations to deathconsciousness except the drums don't sound like total shit

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 26 March 2021 16:02 (two weeks ago) link

hoping for a double nickels length tracklist

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Friday, 26 March 2021 16:08 (two weeks ago) link

it’s 20 songs i think

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 26 March 2021 16:26 (two weeks ago) link

the aforementioned length of the origami angel record is hearsay btw, i don't actually know

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 26 March 2021 20:57 (two weeks ago) link

ok, might as well reveal that i now have the origami angel promo, am halfway through it, and the bar has been cleared

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 26 March 2021 21:23 (two weeks ago) link

i'm AWARE of how this SOUNDS but it's the best record i've ever heard

unsure if this is the right thread for such a thing but pretty much all of videos this article lists are great, imo, and a real timewarp mindfuck back to my srs punk/emo/hxc days

underminer of twenty years of excellent contribution to this borad (dan m), Wednesday, 31 March 2021 23:44 (two weeks ago) link

the really from album is so much more my speed than the young jesus, though i get the comparison

(young jesus was the album last year i felt myself forcing myself to like... maybe their next album will hit me, but the vocals ultimately ended up grating)

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 2 April 2021 16:20 (one week ago) link

I get that!

the opening run of tracks on the Really From album is really striking

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Friday, 2 April 2021 16:24 (one week ago) link

this is the record they made in a laboratory just for me

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 2 April 2021 16:32 (one week ago) link

i ended up buying their previous record verse and it’s also fantastic

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 2 April 2021 19:38 (one week ago) link

I'm sorry this is not 2021 music but I just discovered this record and feel compelled to share, this is taking early back sunday as hell with better guitars

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 9 April 2021 20:26 (six days ago) link

Brad's enthusiasm led me to check out Really From, which I should really love from the description, but I feel like it leans a little too far towards the jazz side of their sound than I'd prefer. It's not bad or anything, just doesn't strike the balance I'd prefer.

uh you may like their previous album, verse

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 9 April 2021 20:32 (six days ago) link

I'll check that one out next! Not disparaging it at all, just wasn't the proportions I was expecting I guess.

citizen's life in your glass world is sounding really really good to me today - the experimentation (aka "drum machines and vocal distortion some of the time") suits them and a few of the songs are seriously earwormy

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 15:20 (two days ago) link

"blue sunday" has a very pleasing chord progression

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VJxMATr9rU

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 15:23 (two days ago) link

catching up on listening to links posted itt, that Closer band sounded really good, and I was sitting around trying to figure out who they reminded me of: Submission Hold (kinda)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yL2-GG8N-js

(thx btw for all the links everyone)

need to hear that citizen record

as well as the record k3v recommended upthread

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 15:52 (two days ago) link

listened to the citizen a couple more times, I think what they're up to here is basically 75% ersatz revival of mid-aughts alt radio stuff(eg bloc party, franz, and especially early killers) with 25% modern emo signifiers - vocals sound quite a bit like manchester orchestra, occasional screaming, downcast lyrics. etc. what sets the best songs apart is the sheer shamelessness - "death dance approximately" in particular is so aggressively hooky that I sort of found it repellent at first!

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Tuesday, 13 April 2021 22:38 (two days ago) link

speaking of shameless "show me something that you like and I'll write you something better" is a pretty good fake pete wentz like
