I'm not so steeped in the genre, but I think that Calvary LP is totally top notch. Sounds a lot like Rites Of Spring, I'm cool with that.
Did they do other records?

Re: new emo bands

just a demo and 7".

Re: new emo bands

Oh shit didn't see it!

Re: new emo bands

No worries! Really looking forward to any new material they come up with. LP was a blinder.

Re: new emo bands

Same. Would go see these bands live but not really bothered about listening to their records. Appreciate the recommendations though, had not heard of Snowing.

Re: new emo bands

They are both a bit more emo than Algernon?

I read most reviews, honest! The abstract for that one must have put me off. Just making an order from sncl for that Straight No Chaser band based on your review! Looks awesome.

Re: new emo bands

Ah ok then your info is correct and that's good news. I thought they had packed it in because they couldn't find a drummer - they have been looking for one for quite a few months now!!

it has been a long time indeed... would be a shame if they don't find one sad they were reaaaaaaaaaaaally awesome the few times i saw them play!

They did find one, posted a myshat bulletin up about it a few weeks ago. Writing new material soon apparently.



oehhh, awesome! smile

Snowing are ex-Street Smart Cyclist. I listened to some rough demos on myspazz ages ago and they weren't anything amazing, but I should probably give them a second chance.

Re: new emo bands

Those lot are better. There are at least 4 bands with this name - http://www.last.fm/music/Straight+No+Chaser - has anyone ever heard someone utter the words 'Straight, No Chaser' when ordering a drink?

Re: new emo bands

Is anyone else actually enjoying listening to the a cappella guys? Seriously, I am.

Re: new emo bands

Thoughts on this page of the thread:

Snowing - really liked the first 2 tracks on the 7" but the others were boring.
I don't like Boys and Sex.
Oli, gonna review their stuff? I think you should...
