Expectations can only go so far without making us go crazy. Luckily I had no expectations for this album and by doing so made it possible for Invented to take hold as they haven't been able to do since their Clarity days. What I would love to see for the future of Jimmy Eat World. Drop their major label, and lets see what their music can really do. I only think good things could come of it. In the meantime, Invented is an alternative rock masterpiece!
Having seen Cursive at festivals and medium-sized venues, one gets the illusion that Kasher is untouchable, a god of the stage who is just out of reach. To see him at a bar on the city's north side, nervously strumming through poignant, delicately worded songs he attributes to nobody but himself was something special.
The sheer lunacy provided by the guys who make up the band, each of whom is now in the mid-to-late 30s, was unreal. Tim Kinsella, frontman, occasional tambourine slammer and French horn blower, was especially animated. Even for him.
The Appleseed Cast has had tremendous longevity over the years. The band is working on album number eight and is also looking to release some new 7”s in the near future. Recently the band embarked on a 50 date tour playing Low Level Owl Vol. I-II in its entirety at each show. I talked to guitarist Aaron about the tour, new music, and much more.
Braid was a highly influential emo/post-hardcore band from Illinois that helped define the genre in the mid to late 90s. The band played four final shows in 1999 before disbanding. They reunited for a reunion tour in 2004 playing US, Canada, and Japan dates. After much demand, in April 2010 Polyvinyl re-issued their first two full lengths as well the Movie Music volumes. I got a chance to discuss with the band their history, DVD release, influences, vinyl collections, those re-issues and so much more.
