Please be aware that Evergreen is not "house" music. It's punk. This needs to be corrected. Thanks!
The final piece of the post-Slint puzzle.

"If you don't know of the band Slint, you should. They formed in Louisville KY in the mid-80s, and they were... I don't know, but they were more than a band. They were practically a phenomenon. The released an album in 1987 (Tweez), then another in 1991 (Spiderland). Then they broke up, and many mourned their passing. The various members then took part in other projects. Brian McMahan (guitar/vocals) and David Pajo (guitar) both worked with Will Oldham and various incarnations of The Palace Bros. David Pajo was involved with Tortoise early on. The two then started their own projects; McMahan now fronts The For Carnation and Pajo has a project which manifests under various "M" monikers... Aerial M, Papa M, even just plain old M. I've never heard of either of Slint's bassists being involved in any post-Slint music, but I did hear that drummer Britt Walford had joined (or formed?) a band. That band is Evergreen.This is by far the weakest of the former Slint boys' offerings. It's nothing more than mediocre indie/college rock, and it's as generic as I just made it out to be. It isn't horrible, per se. But it does fall short of the greatness that The For Carnation and Aerial M have reached. I honestly don't fault them for not sounding like Slint (The For Carnation and Aerial M show obvious hints of their heritage), it's just that there's very little about the music on this disk that makes any sort of an impression. There's no spark. Still, it was nice to hear Britt in action again. Brian, David and Britt must be frustrated that nearly 10 years after they broke Slint up, people like me are still attatching the name to their foreheads with a staple gun. But that's just too damned bad. They should have thought of that before they formed one of the most amazing, jaw-droppingly beautiful bands the world has ever known."
