I went out for a couple of cold ones with some pals on Friday night. We went to young, hip, ironic people bars. We thought "hey we're Dads now. Let's remember what it was like to be young". Well every stupid bar we walked into was playing the Rapture way louder than it should have been.
And yes, I understand that by playing the Rapture here and now I am no better than them.
A sort of Buffalo band
The band's music was a quirky blend of smart pop and psychedelia crossed with the more experimental side of new wave. Though they never received widespread recognition outside of critical acclaim, they provided a key link between Big Star and '80s alternative guitar acts such as R.E.M.
Pretty Fountains of Waynesie if you ask me.
It is across the horizon and his name is Toby Gardenhire.
I saw these guys last night along with the New Pornographers. I will comment on how wonderful the show was in LTE form when I sober up a bit.
