Algernon Cadwallader - Catalogue Reissue

Mastering, 2018Ryan SchwabeComment
The most influential emo bands are almost invariably mourned using the lexicon of incompletion and imperfection – they break up on the precipice of something bigger, are misunderstood or scorned by contemporary critics, leave a cruelly small recording legacy cited by more commercially successful peers as a primary influence. And since Algernon Cadwallader is a cultishly beloved and defunct emo band, it’s only right that Peter Helmis fondly remembers there being “something unattainable” about the Philadelphia trio.

Algernon Cadwallader - Parrot Flies

Mastering, 2011Ryan SchwabeComment

“Interesting indeed...” is what came to mind while quietly jamming the new LP from twinkly emo revivalists, Algernon Cadwallader. Their self-released new album is called Parrot Flies, and I just love the South Park-style paper cutout of the parrot on the front. Something is really stirring in Philadelphia because so much great music is coming from there these days. Music in the veins of Midwest ‘90s emo.
