The whole emo-grunge thing is certainly a thing with younger bands, it’s not really but my cup of tea but every now and then there’s one that grabs your attention because they don’t spread themselves too thinly. Take Glasgow’s Flakes with their new tape out on Struggletown Records, few can pull of a trudging slowcore track like ‘got the morbs’ and get away with it. Meandering and delicate, a pacemaker. Music doesn’t need to be played faster than this.
