So recently I’ve expanded my search for more MidWest Emo bands. Some are more math-rockish then others, but they all fit the description. I’d suggest checking my previous blog post that touches the subject of math-rock, post-rock, and midwest emo, and provides examples of each.
Here’s some of the bands and songs I found in my search. Enjoy!
“Song For Ghosts To Haunt To” by Maps & Atlases
“Viva La Speed Metal (Live)” by The Jazz June
“Spit Fountain” by Algernon Cadwallader
“Be My Lobster” and “I’m Just Slippin’ on Monsters, Thinkin’ About Life” by Hightide Hotel
“Sundays” by Joie De Vivre
“Summerville, SC” by Into It. Over It.
“Let’s Go Blue” by Hey Mercedes
“Back And To The Left” by Texas Is The Reason
If you are enjoying the music above, I suggest looking into these bands more. If you’re on Spotify, my user name is ‘leesplez,’ and I have a playlist with a lot of good bands just like the ones above!
