A rough and rugged genre named Emotional Hardcore made love to melodic and gentle Indie Rock. Their child is Midwest Emo, a subgenre of emo that typically incorporates catchy melodies and guitar riffs with the emotional expression and energy of 1980s Emocore bands. Midwest Emo is often easier to listen to and digest than raw energy such as hardcore punk while retaining its archetype edginess and bombast. Examples include Cap'n Jazz, The Promise Ring, Tiny Moving Parts, and Foxing.

A: Actually, they're Midwest Emo. Just listen to that intricate guitar work.
