BRUNCH: Manrae

All-business patiencecore jets the Ebullition groove trans-Atlantic. Leicester boys spin yarns of injury, regret, and the inadequacy of language. By 1995, nothing new, but Manrae's steady builds and articulate mouthpiece — or is it just the accent? — present a new vision of emo composure, measured and contemplative without the "violent" histrionics. This time, chaos ain't me.

"Mr. Leuchter"
"Pacata Hibernia"
"Sleight of Hand"
