They Love Those Who Make the Music
Formed in 1996 in the diminutive Pennsylvania city of Kutztown around the talents of Andrew Low, Justin Max, Bryan Gassler, Adam Gerhart, and Daniel O'Neill, all of whom met at Kutztown University, hard-hitting emo-pop quintet the Jazz June employ a heady mix of punk-infused indie rock and emotionally charged post-rock, and became one of the leading lights of the burgeoning emo scene in the late '90s (falling somewhere between Sunny Day Real Estate and the Promise Ring) before calling it quits in 2002. The group issued a significant body of work before disbanding, including the LPs They Love Those Who Make the Music, Boom, The Motion and the Music, Breakdance Suburbia, Medicine, and Better Off Without Air. In 2007 they put out a collection of B-sides, rarities, and live cuts under the title Scars to Prove It, and in 2014 they made their reunion official by releasing a brand new studio album, the Top Shelf Records-issued After the Earthquake.
