Brightside - 2011 - Good Enough

 Brightside is an punk rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They feature ex-members of Code Orange Kids and the Edukators. They play a brand of emo that I quite enjoy. It's as close to pop punk as you can get without being incredibly poppy, while still having a base in actual punk music. The vocals are all clean and desperate and there's as real melodic sense above the anger and churn of the rhythm section. They pour an incredible amount of energy and emotion into their music which translates to pure energy. You can buy their LP Good Enough on cassette tape from Driftwood Records
