Sarasota, Florida Emo 3 piece Betterment have returned with their latest EP "Raise Your Spirit" and it proves to be the band's best collection of songs to date. With excellent melodic guitarwork and vocals from multiple members that display excellent use of group vocals as well as the tired and true sing/scream dynamic, the band pulls heavily from 90's emo bands such as Braid and Mineral as well as newer more screamo influenced groups such as Algernon Cadwallader, Glocca Morra and Grown Ups. Overall, Raise Your Spirit is an excellent listen that comes highly recommended for fans of the aforementioned bands and the emo genre in general.
