Podcast #052 – When Indie Bands Kick Out the Jams

Show notes:

Here at LMB we’re obviously open to a band stretching a song beyond its normal studio length or otherwise changing it for the live setting…that’s, in fact, one of the main reasons people dig live music. (Okay, duh, you can send my regards to Captain Obvious)

But while a band such as Phish is definitely known for kicking out the long jams in concert, there are plenty of other live bands that don’t normally get this label that can still rock out a jam segment either in concert or in the studio.

With this in mind, we’ve compiled a few long-winded tracks from some bands that are not necessarily known for their jamming skills, and we want to know from all the listeners: do you like when “indie rock” bands jam? That’s the basic premise here, and if you didn’t catch it, the title is supposed to be tongue-in-cheek.

Total running time: 45:46

Tracklists includes “stretched out” songs from:
Wilco, Radiohead, LCD Soundsystem, !!!, and Yo La Tengo

Enjoy! And definitely let us know what you think in the comments section.
