American Football build on their distinct craft for creating pop songs out of odd time signatures, seamlessly weaving multi-minute epics without ever feeling overblown such as on Silhouettes, cementing the band's return as a success. American Football, not to be confused with British Soccer or Norwegian Table Tennis, have finally found their footing. After the disappointing second album, their third effort feels like a legitimate step foward for the band. The production is gorgeously textured, retaining their emo/math rock sound while leaning more into dream pop territory. It’s also extremely well-written and Mike brings out vocal performances that actually stick.

Everyone is Dressed Up Not long after Polyvinyl Records released American Football’s self-titled debut album in 1999, the band called it quits, having only played a smattering of Champaign-Urbana college house parties and sets at small clubs like Chicago’s legendary Fireside Bowl. When American Football announced in 2014 that they would play live for the first time in 15 years, the built up appreciation for that eponymous LP physically manifested itself as they sold out 3 nights at Webster Hall in New York City in a matter of hours, and then went on to do the same at venues around the world.
American Football was released on Polyvinyl on September 28, 1999. According to an issue of CMJ New Music Report dated 18 October 1999 the album performed well at college radio stations, which might be due to Kinsella's musical past. Despite the minor success, the band broke up due to the members no longer living in the same. Owen and Rutabega Reissue and touring. In April 2014 American Football announced they were reuniting for live performances.
About American Football, sometimes stylized as americ anfootball, is an American indie-rock band formed in 1997 and signed to Polyvinyl Records. The band would later break up after the release of their first album, before reforming in 2014 with new member Nate Kinsella and have been active since. In 1997, Mike Kinsella, then a university student who performed in bands such as Joan of Arc and Cap'n Jazz, formed the band The One Up Downstairs alongside Steve Lamos, Allen Johnson, and David Johnson. Though the band was originally supposed to put out a single on Polyvinyl Records, the record was shelved as the band broke up.
American Football (known colloquially as LP3, as all the band’s studio albums are self-titled) awakens with microscopic bell chimes and shudders of vibraphone as the seven minutes of Silhouettes swaddle the band’s guitar lattices in reverb and glitter-gray exhaust. It’s Steve Reich reincarnated as a tinny iPhone alarm on lead singer Mike Kinsella’s nightstand, going off after a sleepless night. Nearly every track on LP3 pushes out toward the five-minute mark, and where previous American Football songs were internal journeys, this album’s travel to new vistas in all directions. The flow of Every Wave to Ever Rise is languorous and asymmetrical like a tide pool before its outro descends into the same deep water as the Cure’s Disintegration, whereas the intro of Doom in Full Bloom dares to toe the vast oceans of Smashing Pumpkins’ Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.
