Weekly Nostalgia: Sunny Day Real Estate

Posted by: Adam Pfleider (09/15/09)
Seattle has been a mecca of creative, talented bands throughout the years, but of the early 90's post-hardcore scene, Sunny Day Real Estate brought a sound that resonates through many bands today. The band's debut album, Diary, is a staple, and is seen as one of the first true "emo" records after Rites of Springs' End on End, but around the same time as Jawbreaker's 24 Hour Revenge Therapy. The band released four full lengths in their time, including one of my favorite records, How it Feels to Be Something On. Vocalist/guitarist Jeremy Enigk, drummer William Goldsmith. guitarist Dan Hoerner, and bassist Nate Mendel have reunited this year for a tour, which coincides with the reissues of both Diary and LP2. This is a momentous occasion to see one of the most influential bands to this site, and music in general. More information can be found at the band's website. Be sure to check out at least one release by the band this week, and witness a piece of history at a show near you in the weeks to come. Tour starts Thursday and runs until October 16th.

How It Feels to Be Something On is a classic, and, in my opinion, SDRE's best record. Guitar & Video Games is a beautiful song.

I'm hoping my Diary reissue makes it here soon. I'm seeing them in DC at the end of the month and I couldn't be more stoked. Jeremy Enigk played here on my birthday a few years ago opening for Cursive. It was an awesome night. This will hopefully top it.
