Sisters - Everybody


Another great recommendation courtesy of Jason out in Washington. Hailing from Olympia, this trio makes noise pop that could easily be mistaken for a lost Sonic Youth record from the mid 80's. The aforementioned indie rock godfathers could probably benefit from picking up a copy of Everybody and taking some notes. The music that Sisters make has the sort of bite that Thurston Moore & Co. haven't been able to capture in years.

Ouch.
Well, I really like this record. When did It come out? Other then a passionate description of the band as an embodiment of what indie rock use to mean "before blogs, before “Garden State” and commercial licensing deals," I can't find shit on them- which, all things considered is not all that surprising if what they say about them is true. The record was added to their label's store (which seems to have no further information on the band other than the album description) on February 9th this year, does that mean this is a very recent record... and that they're going to tour? Possibly, Maybe? Wow, I guess I really don't know how things function outside of the internet anymore.

Oh, Never mind they have a Myspace after all.

Thanks for the post, a good album likely to be overlooked by many people but OngakuBaka has its finger on the pulse. Okey the name gives the band (Sister being my fav SY-album) away but the music is good, the only problem is the low quality of the mp3s, 160kbps rip does not do the music justice.
