    Charli XCX releases her new album Brat next week, and while making the promo rounds in NYC, she appeared on the new episode of Recess Therapy. On it she hung out in the park with host Julian Shapiro-Barnum and a bunch of kids, talking with them about partying.

    By 2004, the emo boom was really boomin’. Emo was just the pop music of its time at this point (one form of it, at least), and bands in the Victory/Vagrant/Drive-Thru mold were popping up left and right. It’s the year things started to get a little too oversaturated, so it makes sense why a lot of the great bands in this world wanted to break from that mold in the years that followed–some were already doing that in 2004. A lot of mainstream emo started to look and sound the sam
