Local boys kicking ass.
All the losers crying for an American football or mineral reunion got one and they’re pretending to not care because they want a more obscure band to reunite.

Anonymous asked: hey chris, big fan. but what do you think of the slowcore revival?
I think that slowcore revival needs to overtake grunge revival as the true successor to emo revival. Only time will tell what the outcome of this Manichean struggle will be, but right now grunge is winning. The 2013 Pity Sex record (very relevant guitar music band) displays this edge — it skews in the grunge/noise direction of the shoegaze spectrum. However, the recent ridicule to which the band formerly known as “Daylight” (popular but not great grunge revival champions) has been subjected suggests that the tables may be turning.
That’s all for now.
i remember when that last modern baseball record came out yall were going off on ‘oh man they have songs about INSTAGRAM now’ and i don’t adore MB, i’ll admit they have some good songs but more importantly did you guys all forget about the instagram lines (plural) in Blood on the Leaves?
The difference is that one artist is a cultural visionary whose greatness stands in spite of his temporal frame of reference and the other is a boring pop punk band.
