Sioux Falls

Finally catching up on some regular updates now. Still working on the Treefort coverage, but for now let’s dive into some of my favorite albums this year so far. Let’s start with Portland band Sioux Falls. They released Rot Forever back in February and it is a kick-ass indie-rock album that is filled with really good songs. Sioux Falls has such a classic indie-rock sound to them ranging from Modest Mouse to Pavement to Built To Spill. They also have an emo-punk theme to their music along the lines of Blink-182.
The vocals are what jump out at you first. The growly viciousness of Isaac Eiger is a staple in Sioux Falls. The way that he paces and presents the lyrics are really unique and add another layer of intrigue to the band.
Overall Rot Forever goes down as one of the freshest indie punk-rock albums this decade. So definitely wrap your ears around Sioux Falls.

Sioux Falls

New music from local Portlanders Sioux Falls. These guys have such a classic sounding indie rock sound. The new album is called Lights Off For Danger, which just came out a couple of weeks ago. The album is full of great tunes that leave you wanting even more. The album starts off with a heavily Modest Mouse induced song called “On the Bus In the Heat.” Then follows up with a mostly instrumental track, “Where Is Nebraska,” one of my favorites.
Sioux Falls has great songs that most people can really understand and get into. They are a new favorite of mine and you can download the new album for free! Make sure to check out “Empty Shows” and “Lights Off Speak Less.” Go listen.
