last night i was chatting with james when i remembered this link for a band my sister had sent me that i never got around to checking out. the trachtenburg family slideshow players.

a band that perform music based on found slides. i couldn't get the videos to load when i tried to watch them earlier, but i could listen to the sound samples. i'm not sure how i feel about them, but i suspect i would like them more live than just listening.

while listening to them i thought: they sound so seattle. and by seattle i mean pre-grunge seattle. i can't quite put my finger on what it is, but the vocals sort of remind me of the young fresh fellows or bands that were on the pop llama label.

after being fairly certain they were a seattle band i started to think - maybe i'm wrong. maybe they are from boston or something. but looks like i was right according to all music guide they have two hometowns: seattle and new york city.
