You Blew It! - 2014 - Keep Doing What You're Doing

You Blew It! is a three piece emo band from Orlando, Florida, America. Keep Doing What You're Doing is their new LP courtesy of Topshelf Records. You Blew It! play a brand of midwest emo garnering comparisons to bands like American Football and Braid. It's not that they're doing anything new, melodic noodly guitars, shouted but still melodic vocals and an overweening sense of meloncholy aren't ground breaking but there's something to be said for a band that can pull all those things together into an album that practically demands re-listening. Highlights include Match & Tinder, Regional Dialect, A Different Kind Of Kindling, Rock Springs, You & Me & Me,Gray Matter and Better To Best .  If you like your emo straight ahead with a clear melodic sense, You Blew It!'s Keep Doing What You're Doing will serve well.
