Small Brown Bike – Fell & Found

April 12, 2011

I am not entirely sure what to say about this album. Small Brown Bike are a band that’s basically reached cult status in the No Idea Records-esque punk/post-hardcore scene. When I was at the Fest 8, I met people who flew from all over the globe to see the band play a reunion set. After splitting up in 2004, they’ve reunited and released a new full length. If you are familiar with the band, this album will seem like a natural progression. It feels more modern, but it’s still very much like the old stuff. If you don’t know Small Brown Bike, picture the middle ground between gruff, emotive punk like Hot Water Music and more intense emo/post-hardcore bands like Castevet (or CSTVT, stupid damn name change). Yeah, that’s all I got. Check it out. There’s a reason these guys are so influential.

    These guys fall right into the amazing mid/late 90’s Midwest Emo. I suggest checking out their split with The Casket Lottery (these bands go hand in hand) or “Nail Yourself To The Ground”… Cameron is right, These guys are still influencing bands for a reason. Very Exciting.
