Amoeba Review

07/04/2014

Is it too soon to be nostalgic for emo? Nonsense. It never died anyway; Joyce Manor go at it like it's the turn of the millennium on their latest, Never Hungover Again, pouring their feelings all over their worn copies of Weezer's Pinkerton and reinvigorating a once-derided genre that sounds pretty great right about now. Singer/guitarist Barry Johnson's voice cries in and out of tune (but never without passion) over shredding chords on "Falling in Love Again," acknowledging the excitement of a new crush while his tone anticipates heartache. But it's not all open-diary melancholy; the buoyant "End of the Summer" bobs into the headlong "Victoria" and before you know it, you're googling to see whatever happened to The Get Up Kids and if they're touring. Even their sadder tunes like "Schley" don't wallow, full of scenic guitarwork and gently propulsive beats. They're not adding much to the equation, but hearing Never Hungover Again makes you want to be 16 and get drunk on pop-punk all over again.
