10. Dananananaykroyd, Hey Everyone! (‘Infinity Milk’)
Like the melody-driven approach to screamo of Raein, Dananananaykroyd put the sweet bits of the indie rock into the maelstrom with heavy, choppy post-hardcore. It makes for something more interesting, for me, than the wearying twee-ness of Los Campesinos! or even of Johnny Foreigner. Perhaps some of those bands’ endearing quirkiness is lost in Dananananaykroyd’s approach, maybe by recognising that even post-Mclusky there still ways to be exciting and heavy and loud (especially post-Mclusky; some might point to Future of the Left’s latest album for this). It’s the promise of combining the fun of pop (or quirky indie-rock, at least), the dynamism of post-hardcore, the vocal energy of screamo, and the crunchiness of metallic rock that Hey Everyone! works hard at fulfilling, over a fairly diverse range of songs.
