"As a member of Their/They’re/There and Stay Ahead of the Weather, as well as the brains behindInto It. Over It., Chicago native Evan Weiss is a leading figure in the welcome reemergence of Midwestern emo, a movement that’s necessarily reductive to simultaneously give credence to the yelping, math-y Cap’n Jazz acolytes and the type of autumnal, wistful pop that Into It. Over It. makes. “Spinning Thread,” the first single from his second LP, Intersections, is indicative of how Weiss’ pop sense stands out amongst the guitar tapping, odd time signatures, and shredded vocals of his peers.
Weiss takes cues from early Death Cab for Cutie and the Promise Ring, as verbose, melodically winding acoustic guitars lead while more distorted parts add texture. His pure-sounding vocals recall one side of a difficult conversation between two people who are better at talking than they are at listening: equally vulnerable and confident, passive and aggressive (“Talk about something new/ I’m goddamn desperate/ I’m fucking begging you”), word-drunk and just plain ol’ drunk.  “Spinning Thread” is one for the overthinkers and overdrinkers, a sticky yarn about someone who’s gonna talk himself out of living in the moment.”
