a little more easy today kids. here's some 90's emo courtesy of The Van Pelt.
the van pelt were an indie/emo band from new york city that formed in 1993 and lasted until 1997 with a brief two show reunion in 2009. the band consisted of former members from the bands Native Nod and Blonde Redhead. after their breakup, some members went on to bands like Jets To Brazil, Enon and The Lapse. for me, what makes this band stand out amongst all the other 90's acts out there was the unique vocal approach. lead singer chris leo had a more spoken word style of singing rather than your normal style. you might have heard this used by craig finn from The Hold Steady. also adding to the overall atmosphere is the music created by the players here. if you like the soft styles of perhaps, American Football, Bells on Trike, Built to Spill and the uptempo shifts of Sonic Youth this might be for you.
so for the music you will find their two full length albums minus the three hard to find split albums. first is the, Stealing From Our Favorite Thieves and second is my personal favorite, Sultans of Sentiment. try these out and enjoy!!!
you'll be alright...
