MewithoutYou is yet another example of why emo is the new prog: The eclectic Philly outfit holds forth in precariously wordy yet impressively fervent fashion. Its latest is Ten Stories, a concept album about a circus-train crash in the 19th century. A Great Big Pile of Leaves, a local band that's much classier than its name might suggest, runs with the emo crowd, but its output tends more toward tight, postpunky indie pop.
