Sport released a new album, ‘Slow’ (stream it)

Sport Slow

French emo band Sport returned this past Friday (5/13) with the digital release of Slow, the followup to their great 2014 album Bon Voyage. Talking about that album, I said “It’s easy to get tired of the Kinsella-style emo bands — like garage rock or doom metal, it’s a genre where the point is sort of to do something that’s been done before — but Sport really do feel like a breath of fresh air.” That’s true of Slow too. Once again they’ve got a punky formula that kinda sounds like Cap’n Jazz meets Title Fight, and while they are in fact “reviving” an old style of emo, their sound is too fun and too spirited to feel like they’re just a rehashed version of other bands.

Slow will be out on LP this summer via Adagio 830 in the US (and Germany), Dog Knights in the UK, and a few other labels in other countries. More release info here. Stream the whole thing below.

Sport were last in NYC for the 2014 BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase with The Jazz June, Pity Sex, Beach Slang, and Cayetana. Check out pictures here.
