BUM OUT: Celebrate with Me, I’m Letting Myself Go: LP

It’s not as pervasive as it was a decade or two ago, but anti-emo sentiment still pervades most punk circles, despite renewed interest in progenitor bands like Samiam and Jawbreaker. Fuck that. Emo rules! Bum Out is one of the best contemporary emo bands, bellicosely belting out tragic music as unabashedly as dudes like Pegboy’s Larry Damore did before them. Featuring Razorcake’s own Mark Twistworthy, this record is one for the ages. It’s easily one of my favorite records of the year. Don’t miss it! –Art Ettinger (Twistworthy)
