Pop Filter

In this episode we're listening to the debut album by Chicago's Hospital Bracelet, a brief history of emo music and why South Loop Summer is a great demonstration of the best aspects of midwest Emo.

Show Notes

South Loop Summer is a demonstration of the contemporary revival of Midwest Emo from the 90's. Featuring soul-baring storytelling without pretentious South Loop Summer sees Hospital Bracelet growing from an acoustic solo project into a full blown emo-punk band with sick riffs, taut drumming and plenty of F-Bombs. Have you ever had an ***hole in your life that you've wanted to cuss out? Because Eric Christopher sure did and they do a good job at it. 

You can cathart alongside Hospital Bracelet on all major streaming platforms and at hospitalbracelet.bandcamp.com!

Pop Filter is produced in Victoria, BC on WSANEC and Lkwungen land. You can follow Pop Filter on all major podcast locations and at popfilter.ca!
