For fans of: Criteria, State Faults and Thursday.
AMERICAN HAIKU was a pleasant surprise. The band is hard to pinpoint, but they border on emo, rock, post-hardcore and even skate/pop-punk. It's a very interesting and rewarding listen - especially half-through "Crinkling Paper". Think a mixture of pretty late-90s emo mixed with early Thursday, Criteria and the screaming of State Faults.
