Another band I know very little info about: Olivia Tremor Control.
"Memories of Jacqueline 1906" from Music from the Unrealized Film Script "Dusk at Cubist Castle" (1996)
The only thing I know about them? They were part of Elephant 6 crew - which puts them alongside Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, Apples in Stereo, etc...
"Define a Transparent Dream" from Music from the Unrealized Film Script "Dusk at Cubist Castle" (1996)
That means something approaching quirky but baroque but tuneful, vaguely '60s-indebted proto-indie-pop. Also, elaborate album and/or song titles. Right?
"Hideaway" from Black Foliage: Animation Music, Vol. 1 (1999)
Yeah, sounds right. O and Athens, GA!
Here's their website. I didn't realize that they'd only really been active such a short time - only two real albums and a handful of singles, within about 4 years. But they seem to have been re-uniting for quite awhile.
You can find their new suite "That Game You Play Is In Your Head," either for sale from Secretly Canadian or streaming at Pitchfork. And those two full albums are being re-issued by Chunklet.
