Song of the Day - From The Sea

Wearing all black and looking apathetic does NOT make us emo!

Eskimo Joe - From The Sea

Eskimo Joe. A band that showed such promise before being seduced into emo commerciality. I kid, I kid... don't go self-harm or anything rich kids. It was nice to see the Western Australian three-piece gain a larger audience, even if the song 'Black Fingernails, Red Wine' made me cringe more than just a little bit. Don't even get me started on 'Sarah' which had the classic line, "Sarah, won't you tell me your name." Uh, you just addressed her by it. The boys dropped the emo-esque act by their next album, Inshalla, so everything was right in the universe once more.

'From The Sea' was the first single lifted from Eskimo Joe's second (and best) album A Song Is A City. If you're not too familiar with Eskimo Joe, it's a worthwhile listen and comes highly recommended from the fictitious It's My Kind of Scene hall of fame. If that's not good enough for you, it placed at #3 on the 2004 edition of JJJs Hottest 100. And if that's not good enough for you... I've got nothing.
