Find Me On:
Haha my mom loves this town. Antique stores and artisanal glass blown lamps and French bakeries. Mom stuff. They have a good bookstore though, and Lambertville right across the river has the River Horse brewery and a decent game store.
No one has mentioned Love Dog yet? That intro is incredible…
I’ll be revisiting my TVOTR albums thanks to this list.
While I agree that DIIV are boring as hell, this is Stereogum… 90% of the bands covered here are bands “nobody cares about”. To me it sounds like totally generic, shapeless shoegaze, but other people seem to really like it, so there ya go…
It’s an item of spiritual significance to a group of people that North America has committed genocide upon.
You want to define a whole genre in two songs? A lot of these bands sound nothing alike, but I guess give “In Circles” by Sunny Day Real Estate and “Never Meant” by American Football. It’s a safe bet that anyone who likes emo loves at least one of those songs.
I haven’t seen the play myself, so maybe it really is bad, but some of those reviews do sound pretty out of touch. The Vulture reviewer, for example, complains about Tupac’s slant rhymes and that hip-hop doesn’t have enough melodies.
Martyrdod is exactly what I need right now. This will tide me over until From Ashes Rise and/or Disfear get around to putting out something new.
As long as we’re naming overlooked additions to this list, how about some love for Samiam?
Love that Piebald got a mention. Terribly underrated, and a lot of fun live.
Gotta say, I always considered ATDI more a part of the post-hardcore scene, with their peers being Refused, Glassjaw, and Blood Brothers, more so than emo proper, but I suppose the lines are blurry.
Serj what are you doing, everyone else in your band wants to make another album and you’re dicking around with this doofus?
