Chicagoan Evan Weiss is far from a fresh-faced dabbler in the genre, having spent the better part of the last 15 years cranking out angular angst with myriad bands. But now he's a key player of the current "emo revival" following last year's Intersections LP by his one-man band, Into It. Over It. While previous releases were endearing enough on their own modest terms, Intersections is the real deal, proof that "adult" lyrical content and sophisticated production can be powerfully paired with Braid-styled riffs. With the World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, and Farewell Continental. 18+.
