American Football

This second wave emo band from the nineties is fantastic. Along the same lines as Mineral, Sunny Day Real estate, and old Appleseed Cast. The simple riffs could be considered post-rock nowadays but the lyrics are straight up emo. This album works well for this time of year and for wanting a little nostalgia.

i'm going to have to politely disagree with that entire description, except for the emo lyrics part. There's no distortion ever, which sets it apart from most early emo, and they switch time signatures and have crazy polyrhythms going on. I would compare it more to other kinsella projects like early joan of arc.
