I have loved this album forever.
Acres. are a relatively unknown emo band from New Jersey and the obscurity of the cover of their release Silos reflects on the band themselves. In the words of fellow contributor Sam, this EP is full of "nice, summer-ish" emo tunes, laced with lovely kinsella-esque melodies and shouted, angsty vocals. I've pretty much been hyping this since its release last February and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this is one of the most clarified, hard-hitting emo albums since last year's What It Takes To Move Forward by Empire! Empire!(I Was A Lonely Estate). At first listen it's nothing new, as emo apologist SlightlyEpic may tell you, but the record is full of genuine emotion and is devoid of pretense. Check it out.
