God, seldom am I moved so much by pretty, methodical guitar work. American Football's instrumentation is the best thing about them and certainly the most rigidly structured aspect of the band. The true beauty of their LP is in its liquid lush. It feels loose, it behaves freely in spite of its math rock-esque musicianship. Whereas most emo groups that focus so much on composition SOUND like they're actively focusing on crafting, operating, and maintaining unique soundscapes, American Football's LP is strikingly organic and absolutely compelling. There are many reasons why it's the best emo album ever recorded and that's just one of them. The LP is fascinating, melodically rich, and achingly pretty.
bom pra ouvir quando dá umas 2 ou 3 da manhã, aí você começa a pensar no significado da vida e bate aquele feels desgraçado, porém bom ao mesmo tempo (?). quando chega nas duas últimas músicas, você chora.
Hey guys. If you like shitty small emo bands from places you've never heard of; none come any smaller than my mate and I from Bossley Park, Australia. We wrote an emo album called I'm In The Fetal Position Telling Myself Everything Is Going To Be Okay. It'd be insanely cool if you;d check it out. :) :)
If you like American Football but also angsty hxc yelling, my label just put out a 2 song ep by a band called Toy Maker you just might enjoy. Free download! https://toskatapes.bandcamp.com/album/theres-a-ghost-in-these-walls
everything about their one self-titled release suggests a band in a sort of grace. one of the most perfect and self contained releases i've heard, it hasn't aged at all. everything on it is just so right, including the mastering and recording.
