a pair of contrasting emo bands lay down 3 songs between them prior to the summer 2013 tour. football etc only have 1 of those songs, but balance things out by it being a slow burning wonder. perfectly constructed, gently wandering and with the usual drifting vocals. no huge departure from what they have treated us to before, but perhaps a little more sombre. great stuff.
plaids are far rowdier and you will be more than familiar with them if you have any interest in the burgeoning UK emotional punk rock scene. songs "eleven" and "twelve" are barn burners, with the latter being their most explosive and, for me, best effort to date. the music is pitched along the lines of the glorious assorted porkchops days of bands like rights reserved and cornelius, a full bore effort that melds 80s, 90s, 00s and nows into a sweet sweet melodic sound.
