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 (eight months ago) link

aaaaaaahhhhhh fireworks!!!!!!!!!

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Thursday, 4 February 2021 17:46 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 13:44 (eight months ago) link

lmao yeah i am preordering the wrens album on sight when it comes out in 2025

one of my favorite emo-adjacent releases of the last few years finally getting a physical release

https://dazeyandthescouts.bandcamp.com/album/maggot

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Friday, 5 February 2021 17:06 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (seven months 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 (seven months 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 (six months 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

origami angel are putting out a double album on april 30 called gami gang

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 25 March 2021 21:22 (six months ago) link

oh shiiit!

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Thursday, 25 March 2021 23:25 (six months ago) link

new songs sound great

oh yeah they're amazing

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

hoping for a double nickels length tracklist

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

it’s 20 songs i think

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

aren't we getting a new joyce manor this year as well? our cup overfloweth

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Friday, 26 March 2021 16:30 (six months 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 (six months ago) link

i too am surprised that i find the double album more consistent but every song is a hook factory

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:18 (five months ago) link

the more juvenile lyrics keep me at arm's length but I recognize this is a Me Problem

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:23 (five months ago) link

I'm real finicky about lyrics lately for some reason

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 13:24 (five months ago) link

the juvenile lyrics are a pro for me because i am a grown-up child having a midlife crisis. every time that Taco Bell song comes i close my eyes and am back in my '91 Ford Taurus with my buddies after playing basketball all night.

alpine static, Wednesday, 5 May 2021 20:53 (five months ago) link

maybe I'd feel differently if I ever had a pokemon phase

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 20:55 (five months ago) link

ok gami gang is really fun, wildly overflowing with hooks & ideas

ufo, Friday, 7 May 2021 06:37 (five months ago) link

no denying they are overflowing with ideas and ambition but I just have not been able to get into this yet. I liked the last one too but I think these lyrics are preventing me from really clicking with it. Going to keep trying.

Hеy, man
You tried your best today
And it wasn't all that great
But who really cares
No one
The answer is no one does
Nobody gives a fuck
It's sad but it's true

alpine static, Monday, 17 May 2021 23:00 (four months ago) link

more screamo than anything but should work for this thread I think. from what i understand this will be their final release and is a re-working of past material but I really like this short and sweet energy bomb of an album
https://youthnovel.bandcamp.com/album/youth-novel

Guitarist Maya Chun is great as always. Apparently was involved in Serpent Column too which I love.

Johnny Foreigner are teasing lil snippets on their socials and I'm already inordinately excited.

Mercer Finn, Monday, 5 July 2021 16:20 (three months ago) link

Also the Arm's Length record is wall-to-wall bangers and will probably be my favourite of the year: https://armslengthontario.bandcamp.com/album/everything-nice

The two singles below but actually "Eve (Household Name)" is the standout imo:

this is great. I've somehow missed both reunion albums, maybe I should check them out.

braised cod, Wednesday, 11 August 2021 14:58 (two months ago) link

the second one, palms, is my least favorite thrice album (after their earliest material). to be everywhere is to be nowhere is really solid tho

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Wednesday, 11 August 2021 15:05 (two months ago) link

palms may seem more transitional in retrospect once this new record is out

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Monday, 13 September 2021 13:40 (one month ago) link

thrice album is their best in a very long while, splits the difference between their exploratory radioheadish side and what i'm gonna characterize as their house style of "sludge emo" without spilling over into butt rock (both of the albums before this are guilty)

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Friday, 17 September 2021 17:56 (four weeks ago) link

the new underoath song is way too good to keep in just their thread

No talk/love for the new TWIABP record, Illusory Walls, released yesterday? Figured it was perfect for this thread.

I am really enjoying its ambition, scope and almost, at times, progressive metal edge, but I can see it alienating their more traditional or emo-revival fans. Also not sure if those aforementioned qualities will hold up well upon repeated listens, but for now it is probably my fave AOTY.

bressonian, Saturday, 9 October 2021 21:44 (one week ago) link

I think it's amazing and surely Bradnelsoncore

One-Eyed and Incredibly Mearns (Jonathan Hellion Mumble), Saturday, 9 October 2021 22:35 (one week ago) link

love the amount of atdi i hear in it

STOCK FIST-PUMPER BRAD (BradNelson), Monday, 11 October 2021 20:58 (five days ago) link
