Sport - Colors (2012)
When I first discovered this release, the thing I was immediately drawn to was the album cover. It's kind of like someone took a picture on Instagram and it was actually good. For some reason it made me feel like the album would have some weird, nostalgic feel to it and I can honestly say that it kind of does. The music here is bright and sparkly indie emo with a lot of the Midwestern scene influences although it never feels derivative. The two vocalists are honestly awesome, both very emotive with their own unique deliveries. It seems they draw more from traditional punk vocally but it still fits the music perfectly nonetheless. There are some truly great hooks to be found here and overall this is just an outstanding release.
