The '90s: Sunny Day Real Estate — Diary

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy trace the so-called emo tree back up almost all the way to the top, exploring the definitive parent of the Midwest emo branch, Sunny Day Real Estate’s 1994 album Diary. It stands to reason that if you listen to this podcast, a lot of the bands you enjoy (and episodes we’ve done to date) were influenced by Diary, as SDRE genuinely helped move the genre forward. Find out more about why SDRE couldn’t sustain their success through some fault of their own, which of our hosts’ favourite bands today draw influence from Diary, and where the Foo Fighters come in on this week’s podcast.
