In celebrating Washed Up Emo’s 10th Anniversary, Tom Mullen will be releasing a book called The Anthology of Emo Volume 1. The 376-page book compiles ten interviews from the podcast along with rare, unseen photos and ephemera. You can pre-order the book at https://www.polyvinylrecords.com/product/anthology_of_emo_volume_. Below is a list of interviews that will be featured in the book.
Yesterday Washed Uo Emo had the premiere of Cambridge, UK emo outfit Grieving’s new single, “Brian Emo.” Washed Up Emo described the band as “for fans of Sunny Day Real Estate, Braid and Jawbreaker.” Sounds like a winner to me. Shortly after Washed Up Emo posted the song, the band uploaded the track to Bandcamp. In addition to that song, Grieving has a bunch of ep’s available on their Bandcamp page that you can name your own price for. I picked them all up yesterday and they have been the perfect Friday soundtrack.
You can snag Grieving’s discography at https://grievingband.bandcamp.com/
No matter what you might have heard, read, or thought, emo is fun! And Oso Oso’s new record, The Yunahon Mixtape is fun! I have to thank Washed Up Emo for the heads up about this record. The record is full of catchy, upbeat, indie pop songs. It’s the type of music that makes you feel good! You can name your own price for The Yunahon Mixtape at https://osoosoband.bandcamp.com/

Tampa Bay indie pop band Pohgoh has released their first new track since 1997. From the band:
“We wrote and arranged this song in a couple of hours. For the first song we’ve written in 19 years, it was pretty easy. It’s like we all started speaking the same language again. I instantly knew what the song would be about. We’ve tapped into a kind of magic that we’d forgotten about a long time ago.”
You can watch the video for Try Harder over at http://www.washedupemo.com/news/2016/21/video-premiere-pohgoh- and you can download the single for free at https://pohgoh.bandcamp.com/track/try-harder
One of the records I’m most excited about this fall is Ivadell’s full-length debut, Maybe Tomorrow. The band has given us another glimpse at that record with the song Loch Ness. You can head on over to Washed Up Emo and give the track a spin. http://www.washedupemo.com/news/2015/28/premiere-ivadell-loch-ness
