Artist Of The Day: Everyone Everywhere

If you haven't noticed from my recent posts on Algernon Cadwallader, Empire! Empire!, and Dikembe, I've been on quite a twinkly kick over the last few months. But, even while I've been enjoying a large portion of bands from the genre, it's started to become repetitive and very few new bands are actually breaking into my favorites. Everyone Everywhere's unique take on the sound has launched their latest self-titled album into my top ten of the year, and no song describes them better than their six minute opener "I Feel Exhausted." The band's songwriting is top notch; while a tad repetitive, the buildup keeps the song interesting, while tempo and time changes sophisticate the track beyond those of the band's peers. It's immediately catchy, yet extremely interesting, and is one of the strongest accomplishments in emo this year. The rest of the album is just as great, and you can buy the album for only one dollar on the band's Bandcamp page. While you're there, order the record, as the color is gorgeous and it sounds absolutely great. It's also one of the best of the year, and if you haven't heard it yet, you're missing it.
