The twinkle-daddy/emo revival/whatever the piss you want to call them bands have thrown out some incredible, incredible offerings, and I'm curious to hear from some fans what their favorites are. My own personal:




Grown Ups- More Songs
No doubt my favorite emo record of the last 10 years. Such quality jams, encompassing every good element of the twinkle variety.


Runners up:



Snowing- I Could Do Whatever I Wanted If I Wanted
If you don't/haven't listened to Snowing, do it right now. Such a great emo punk band.




Joie de Vivre- The North End
A great album to chill to, with variety of instrumentation and real emotional depth.


Other favorites:
Dikembe - Chicago Bowls and Broad Shoulders
Everyone Everywhere - s/t
Algernon Cadwallader - Every Release
The Clippers/Coping- split 7''
The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - Are Here To Help

So so stoked on the response to this thread. Been jamming most of the bands mentioned here, and this genre is destroying my iPod. Absolutely lovin' it.

Totally forgot the Empire! Empire! LP, that thing is pure gold. Definitely check it out. And I was referring to BOTH Everyone Everywhere s/t's, seeing as how they're both INCREDIBLE. The 2012 record takes the cake though, phew...straight rad.

Does anyone know some typical alternate tunings used by these twinkle (really hate that description) bands are? I don't have much experience with that and usually shy away from anything that requires me to change the setup of my guitar, but I'm really curious.

I know a lot of "punk"ier emo bands use drop D, Snowing etc. Grown Ups tunes down a half-step (and probably LOTS of other more recent emo bands do this). The more complicated, mathy, Kinsella-y stuff often uses crazy tunings the likes of which I can't tell you and/or use haha. Sorry if thats not much, thats all I really know.
