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 (five months ago) link

aaaaaaahhhhhh fireworks!!!!!!!!!

stimmy stimmy yah (Simon H.), Thursday, 4 February 2021 17:46 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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.

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 (five months ago) link

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

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 (five months ago) link

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

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

if you like the artier end of emo/jazz-rock/math-rock (a la Young Jesus) then the new Really From album is for you

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 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 (four months ago) link

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

https://thirdface.bandcamp.com/album/do-it-with-a-smile-2

gman59, Thursday, 18 March 2021 15:23 (four months ago) link

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 (four 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 (four months ago) link

oh shiiit!

new songs sound great

oh yeah they're amazing

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

hoping for a double nickels length tracklist

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

it’s 20 songs i think

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

The Alternative posted this with a RIYL of Oso Oso, Fountains of Wayne and Macseal ... i punched a hole in my mouse clicking on it:

https://snowellet.bandcamp.com/album/suburban-indie-rock-star

It's not the best thing you'll hear today but it's pretty snappy indie-pop-rock.

new pronoun

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 21 April 2021 15:50 (three months ago) link

Good track. So can somebody trace the growth of vocal processing in emo/pop-punk/etc? Feels like it's become more and more prominent, not just Autotune but feeding vocals through all kinds of effects. I don't mind it, I think it can be used well, I'm just unclear on when it really permeated these genres.

Like I love the way Fritz uses vocal fx on this track.

gami gang...... the emo gods have truly blessed us this year

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Thursday, 29 April 2021 14:42 (three months ago) link

for!!!! real!!!!!

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Thursday, 29 April 2021 15:21 (three months ago) link

it seems unfair that there's already a band called tiny moving parts because that's the perfect description of their sound

the samples are a riot

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Thursday, 29 April 2021 15:25 (three months ago) link

gami gang assemble

here’s where the fun begins

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 30 April 2021 03:43 (three months ago) link

first time listening to gami gang the whole way through since i got the promo... a true 2021 scene classic

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 30 April 2021 14:24 (three months ago) link

it's so exhausting but in mostly a good way

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Friday, 30 April 2021 14:27 (three months ago) link

album cured my adhd

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 30 April 2021 14:32 (three months ago) link

we need way more goofy bands

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Friday, 30 April 2021 14:33 (three months ago) link

Gami Gang album is great
but wtf is up w/ that cover

alpine static, Friday, 30 April 2021 17:43 (three months ago) link

fuckin gami gang

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 22:05 (two months ago) link

i LIKE THAT
you’re COOL AS SHIT
everybody else is fuckin LUDICROUS

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Tuesday, 4 May 2021 22:06 (two months ago) link

yeah ... this album is just awesome. those dudes are clearly just exploding with ideas, pretty much all of them good.

alpine static, Wednesday, 5 May 2021 08:10 (two months ago) link

I'm not sure it's actually better than Somewhere City which makes sense since apparently a bunch of this material predates it? but it clearly rules

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 12:47 (two months ago) link

easily better imo tho both great records

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 5 May 2021 12:50 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two 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 (two months ago) link

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

ufo, Friday, 7 May 2021 06:37 (two 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.

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 (two 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.

am I wrong or is that unexpected?

they put out a good record a couple of years ago but a new quicksand album is always a pleasant surprise yeah

Mercer Finn, Monday, 5 July 2021 16:20 (three weeks 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:
