"Random thoughts for Valentine's Day, 2004. Today is a holiday invented by greeting card companies to make people feel like crap." For Alana, the queen of skramz.


So, it's everyone's favourite day of the year again. Since I did The Saddest Landscape last year, I had to come up with a band even more emotionally heartbroken and melodramatic. The answer: iwrotehaikusaboutcannibalisminyouryearbook, the definition of skramz and sad jams. They were a four-piece band from California. Their members were also involved in Punch, Beau Navire, and ...Who Calls So Loud, which should be an indication of how amazing this band is. They are easily one of the most noteworthy screamo bands of the 2000's, and created some pivotal music in their time. Plus their lyrics are just perfect, especially for people still waiting to meet someone in Montauk.

They put out a discography LP in 2010, with the first 12 tracks taken from their only LP, tracks 13-17 from a demo LP, tracks 18-25 from their first demo, and the 26th track as a bonus one. They never titled their songs, which is why they all have numbers for titles. Enjoy.
