Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 03 / Trk 09 / Lie Down on Landsdowne [Version] / Lifter Puller

I’m including these guys pretty much because they started in Minneapolis in the mid ‘90s, just like the Plastic Constellations. This song dates back to 1999, and still sounds an eensy little bit ahead of its time. Like I’m a little surprised that bands were making this kind of music even then, in various hidden nooks across the country.

It’s interesting to me that Lifter Puller followed the siren call to Brooklyn and morphed into the Hold Steady, while the Plastic Constellations stayed put. I suppose it’s a question every band faces: go to the scene’s epicenter instead of being an odd fish in a small pond?
