The Promise Ring – ‘Nothing Feels Good’

Posted on 27/11/2011


As an incredibly underwhelming celebration of Milwaukee’s The Promise Ring reuniting, i’ve decided to post my favourite record of theirs.  If you haven’t heard these guys, The Promise Ring are basically one of the essential Midwest emo bands of the 90’s, and  inspired a lot of the stuff I, and many other rad dudes, listen to today.  They play an incredibly poppy style of emo, and do it extremely fucking well.  In my humble opinion, this record showcases all that this band has to offer, being its catchy melodies and rhythms, accompanied by its poppy style of vocals that just work so darn well.  It’s definitely not for everyone, but for those of you interested in the genre, it’s a must have if you want to call yourself a fan of emo music.  For those on the border like my friend D, who only like selective bands going under the genre of ’emo’, you will in all likeliness, not like this at all.  But don’t take my word for it, listen:
