Code Music: American Football

American Football – American Football (1999)

This post would have never happened if I didn’t see “American Football” trending on Twitter last night. NFL? XFL? One of my favorite math rock bands? Minutes later I was tweeting the following:

This eponymous debut album by American Football sparks your memory of what it’s like to be a teenager in the late 90’s and early 00’s. The repeating guitar arpeggios and dream like pace with the low-volume vocals makes it a treat to code too. This album has helped code many websites along with deal with tons of heartbreak. The whole album is only 9 tracks averaging around 4 mins a pop, so it’s an easy listen and a great album to put on repeat.
