Razorcake Podcast #145: With Kurt Morris

Ah, emo. It is an oft-debated term in the punk and indie community. What is it? Where did it come from? Why does so much of it suck? Like the idea of defining punk, it can be hard to pin down. While I like a lot of bands that might fall under the emo moniker, I especially enjoy artists from the early to mid-1990s, which is when I first got into emo. There’s so much more out there that I couldn’t include but I figured this was a good start. Despite how you might want to define things, hopefully you will hear some songs you enjoy.
