Default Real emo/screamo thread

Before we begin: Fuzzy you will almost definitely not like any of this music, so kindly just refrain from posting in this thread.

Thought i'd post some of my fav classic/first wave emo and skramz bands, cause I know that word has a negative connotation for its more commercially successful second/third wave bands. Anyway:

Essential early/proto emo:






I'm going to skip Slint because they're pretty well loved here/not often recognised as an emo band (but they totally are - last 3 mins of Good Morning Captain proves it)

Then we have emo's knotty, furious little cousin, screamo (or skramz as it is affectionaly known)





Then later on you get more experimental/progressive stuff as emo interbred with post-rock, post-hardcore, math rock, shoegaze etc:






WOO SADNESS PARTY YEAH WOO

I actually like a lot of Emo. I love this track. It kind of sounds like "Today" on steroids

I appreciate te input fuzz but this thread is more intended for the 90s Midwest style of emo and it's more experimental/abrasive/underground offspring than the big stadium brand of emo that emerged around 2003 like the used, circa survive, saosin, my chemical romance etc.

Caught in a Flood with the Captain of the Cheerleading Squad is one of my favorite songs ever. I paid more for a copy of 10 Songs than any other record I own

have you heard of Lord Snow? awesome chaotic skramz with female vocals

sixteen years ago or so i liked fugazi, sunny day real estate, and at the drive-in and i heard the term emo thrown around for all three. they weren't terrible.

Yeah they're amazing. They have a comeback album this year, as do These Arms Are Snakes. Pretty excited for both.

out of all that stuff we talked about in that mix thread i enjoyed them and " the exploration" the most.



not really what son-jon was talking about but i don't have anything to add to the discussion other than bragging to him about all da cool bands he is talking about that i've seen live and/or toured with.

point of interest: what is up with that screamo -> noise -> new age -> electronic lineage?

i used that sebadoh album to make a short film with my friend julie over the summer after 8th grade. at first i was just recording a rock with a face and had her speaking into my video camera mic over the phone. but she ended up coming over to my father's apartment for us to finish. and that's just a really fun memory i have of us together.

we finished the film, too. at one part i put the rock on the back of the couch while she wore a jacket on her head so the rock looked liked her head. and i kept cracking up because her hands kept moving to make sure it didn't fall on her.

I only listened to it because my boyfriend at the time had brought it over, I pretty much only liked that song...and I never read the lyrics in the liner notes so I thought it was "I don't wanna be the one last flame" and in my stoned stupor I was all like yeah man, profound. so that turned out to be disappointing. But later when I did read the notes my disappointment was mitigated by the number of times Lou Barlow thanked lynard skynard

Probably the more interested you get in recording the less songwriting you're doing...I know that happened to my husband, he did a year of audio engineering so that he could buy equipment with his inheritance and record his band, but in the end his obsession with sound quality destroyed his urge to write songs. And his band broke up because of drugs and uni work, etc. And now he loves really crazy sounding noise and electronica
