American Football craft a mix of math rock, emo, and indie rock that would be bumping on the edge of the mainstream if it was less technical and more hook-laden. Not surprising since it’s the project of Chicago mainstay Mike Kinsella (formerly of Cap'n Jazz and Joan of Arc, currently of Owen), along with frequent collaborator cousin Nate Kinsella, drummer and trumpet player Steve Lamos (the Geese, DMS), and guitar player Steve Holmes (also of the Geese). They released an EP and one critically acclaimed eponymous full-length in 1999, then disbanded, though they reunited after a deluxe rerelease of said album in 2014 and have been active ever since. They’ve even dropped a few more LPs. All are titled American Football.
