Indian Summer - Science 1994
Indian Summer were a short-lived emo/post-hardcore band around in the early to mid 90s (there is a self-titled Indian Summer album from 1971 floating around. this is a different Indian Summer. it is not good). they lasted for a year and then broke up, which is a shame because they made some pretty great music. the Science 1994 anthology (consisting of only 9 songs...) is their only release unless you count live albums. Indian Summer mostly play post-hardcore similar to Drive Like Jehu with vicious guitar riffs and anguished vocals, but they stand out from other post-hardcore bands with their ability to go from aggressive madness to a much softer, melancholy sound, often within the same song, giving them a distinctive and varied sound.
