Four piece emo/punk band from Springfield, Missouri. Wonderful conduction of the melodic logistics between the 2 cooperative guitars and the thoughtfully cadenced vocals driven confidently
 by a solid rhythm section. The creative decisions bear the smell of gristled veterans as Ordinary People offer up their hearts with a music that is both tender and irresistible. I love this and have been repeatedly jamming it and you should too. Ordinary People's debut  "Nothing New" out now and 10inch coming soon on Wiretap Records: May 26, 2015.

band's facebook

Fist Benders is a emo band from Lake Elsinore, CA and is almost single handedly responsible for re-sparking my interest in "twinkly" emo. This band brings an atmosphere that is so dreamy yet distressed with all the guitar harmonics and arpeggios you could ever want complimented by a range of soft and coarse vocals that will wrap you up and not let you go. You'll find tracks like "Understanding" and "Run Everyday" stuck in your head all day and you won't be upset about it. This is definitely one of my favorite releases of 2015 so far and i highly recommend you check it out.
