Free Music Friday: Good Times – Late Bloom

I can only hope that the next wave in the emo revival is more hardcore influenced emo. San Fransisco’s Good Times hits on the same style that made me love Victoria, BC band Toy Maker. You could possibly say in the vein of La Dispute (although I would say more influenced by and not sounding like). The band’s heaviness and raw emotion comes through in the screamed vocals. The music is melodic and serves more as a bed for the vocals to rest upon than a driver of the songs. Even on Broken Shell where the track starts with this blistering punk fury, when the music settles, it goes back into this laid back vibe. Even on the ep’s closer, Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now, where the music drives the song, the contrast between the upbeat funk of the music and the screamed vocals creates something that feels original and fresh. And that’s what hardcore and emo need. A fresh injection of young talent doing things differently. And Good Times provides that on Late Bloom.
