Two Knights

There may be some argument as to how appropriate using the term "emo revival" really is, but with Denton, TX two-piece Two Knights, we're certainly dealing with a new band who revives the emo sounds of yesteryear. Their debut album, Shut Up, comes out next week (4/8) via Count Your Lucky Stars (pre-order) and it takes us back about two decades to the raw, mathy sounds of Cap'n Jazz. Some songs, like opener "If It's Brocken, It's Brocken," are a dead ringer for that band, but much of the album combines the Kinsella noodling with the harsher, throaty vocals that evoke later '90s bands like I Hate Myself and Saetia.

If you dig that stuff, you should check out Shut Up, and can do so by listening to the full album stream which premieres in this post, below...

Emo is music for sexually confused teenage lacrosse players.

I'd take back 5 questions to get rid of these emo posts.

The appropriateness of using the term "new band" to describe Two Knights is questionable.

Two Knights? Wasn't that the song from first wave giants The Emo Doctors?

New band? They're not new.

Really? This is their first album and their EPs date back to 2010. How many years before that did Cap'n Jazz break up?

4 years is not new no matter who you compare it to.

On every post about emo I see a bunch of posts lambasting BV for trying to cover more content, it's really depressing. I know that commenting is anonymous and doesn't take much time, but just ignoring a few posts is even easier than bitching at people who are trying to share music that you don't like.

this is basically a 100% homage for the Houston Noodlely/Screamo Duo from 2002ish, Die Emperor Die. ( http://www.last.fm/music/die,+emperor!+die! )
