Sputnik Emo Punk Thread

There are so many bands out there at the moment.
I will post some of my faves plus a little description:


Sport
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Sport/36248/
http://sport.bandcamp.com/
A band from Lyon, France. Me and my friends often have 'Sport Sessions' in my friend's room at 3 in the morning, and it's perfect. All their songs are named after Olympic Games.
Favourite track: the album 'Colors'

Tigers Jaw
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Tigers-Jaw/13221/
http://runforcoverrecords.bandcamp.com/album/tigers-jaw
A band from Scranton, PA with some of the best vocal harmonies I have ever heard in a punk band. They are currently on their final Europe tour after announcing they would break up on completion of the tour.
Favourite track: 'Lodging' from their split with Balance and Composure.

Moose Blood
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Moose-Blood/41611/
http://mooseblood.bandcamp.com/
Quartet from Kent, UK. Lyrics are usually based around girls and bands. Have just signed to No Sleep Records and are bringing out a split with Departures soon on said label.
Favourite track: 'Bukowski' from 'Moving Home' EP.

Dowsing
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Dowsing/27226/
http://dowsing.bandcamp.com/
Quintet from Chicago, IL. More like Indie Emo and drive most songs with sprightly keyboard motifs. Just toured Europe with Annabel.
Favourite track: 'Amateur Cartography' from 'All I Could Find Was You' EP.

Captain, We're Sinking
http://www.sputnikmusic.com/bands/Captain%2C-Were-Sinking/18654/
http://runforcoverrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-future-is-cancelled
Band from Scranton, PA. Have just brought out superb album 'The Future Is Cancelled' on Run For Cover Records. More punk orientated, but with a lot of hardcore/emo influences.
Favourite track: 'Montreal' from 'The Future Is Cancelled' LP.



Now fire away with your own likes and comment on what I've written sure and the bands I have mentioned.

Happy Wednesday.

Listened to this band coz John Hipster Hanson. But they kept reminding me of Fall Out Boy and I couldn't decide if i was okay with that. Re-listening now and they're loads better than I remember, cool. (Captain We're Sinking that is, not Fall Out Boy)


People would probably dig Crash of Rhinos, they're emo/indie with just the most chill vibe, perfect for lazy summers and all that comes with. In their own words, "We make a racket. Five voices, 2 guitars, 2 basses and a drum kit." I love their first album Distal but they have a new one as well. Butttttttt, Distal is name your price on bandcamp so go get it http://crashofrhinos.bandcamp.com/album/distal

Transposed from other thread for posterity:

Bass Drum of Death - Bass Drum of Death (2013)
FIDLAR - FIDLAR (2013)

I didn't like them as much but neither were bad.


also The Glockenwise - Leeches

^ pushing the shit out of this because it is unheard of over here and I thought it was pretty excellent. maybe a 3.5 to Captain's 4/5
