CHILLERTON: Hollow Lane: 7"

May 21, 2010

Kinda reminds me of the sound that Jawbreaker used to have way back when, but I could be entirely off base since I didn’t really listen to Jawbreaker all that much. Let me make a hazardous attempt at greater accuracy and say that this sounds like the bands that were coming out in the late ‘80s to early ‘90s when some elements of the punk world were transforming into what would become known as emo. That is not to say that this should be junked as an emo record; rather, Chillerton has that early emo sound (musically) but the lyrical content is not pussified the way that emo developed.
