Dead Link Rescue -
This came up on my iPod, I thought " the boys/girls on the indie playlist may like this" then I get the link ready and realize this is 12 or so years old now..... Wtf feeling old
Return to the coast.
BTW - I just learned that the Best Coast drummer up to around 2011 was formerly of the Vivian Girls. Here's a Vivian Girls post I made a while back: Indie Post June 2016.
BTW2 - I like your discovery Le Butcherettes. I'd never heard of them before but when I checked the logs of my favorite station I see in the list a couple that you've posted:
LE BUCHARETTES NEW YORK
LE BUTCHERETTES ACTRESS THAT ATE ROUSSEAU
LE BUTCHERETTES ALL YOU SEE IN ME IS DEATH
LE BUTCHERETTES HENRY DONT GOT NO LOVE
Good pedigree/Vivian girls
Terry Gender Bender's a go getter
I feel old when remember Coldplay, R.E.M. and U2 were once independent too!
Some chicken soup for your psychedelic soul -
Camper Van Beethoven
Telephone Free Landslide Victory
Of all the times I've heard about GY!BE or flipped past them at the record store, I've never taken the time to listen to them. Because of your post, I'm finally giving it a go. I started with Lift your skinny fists..., and now I'm about 15 minutes into F#A#infinity. It's good. Really, really good. Right in my wheelhouse.
Thanks for the prompting!
I tend to find post-rock a little tedious. Most songs, although unstructured, tend to follow a fairly predictable arc. In the end, songs and bands are fairly interchangeable(to me). Not so with GY!BE. This is great. It's far more orchestral and experimental than most post-rock, with multiple movements in the same same. I suppose lumping it in with post-rock would be unfair.
edit: what a useless post. sorry for yammering on.
