World Waits

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Jeremy Enigk; Producer (group): Reincarnate Music

In a climate where emo acts concern themselves more with finding a sexily smearable eyeliner than plumbing any genuine, well, emotion, the original intentions of formative ’90s emo outfits like Sunny Day Real Estate seem pretty much lost. But onetime SDRE frontman Jeremy Enigk is, as the kids say, old school — thought ful, impassioned, and refreshingly unshowy. And while World Waits may be missing the top-hatted theatrics of today’s Billboard prancers, Enigk’s quiet talent — and pedigree — earns him a closer listen.
