Let's start this train a rollin' with a band I just recently got into. Cowboys Became Folk Heroes is one of those bands that released a very small amount of material even though you know they could have done so much more. They're from FL and currently all living in different places, which would explain they lack of material at this time. They had about three total albums which where a demo, s/t, a rare cd/r called Hello Space Cowboy (which I am unable to find), and a release to Europe that was pretty much the same thing as the s/t just four tracks. These guys are just so fucking good, they have so many transitions in their music sometimes you're not sure whats going on. They have a Violent Breakfast, Daitro, and I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism In You Yearbook sound where it's very classic 90's emo infused with moments of melodic atmosphere. They include a very diverse instrumentation ranging from, pianos, violins, xylophones, they create and interestingly punk ambiance that just blows me away.
