31) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Nethers-'What the Wind Will Never Tell'
This band is certainly one of those that was way too overlooked. Nethers lead singer Nikki has an amazing voice, and the atmosphere of their music reminds of me the slower side of Yo La Tengo. I'm happy to have seen Nethers play three times in their short career, and I don't even think this band exists anymore. Pity as they are one of my favorite acts from the past ten years. This album is a great sophmore effort, and a great continuation of their debut album; which I enjoyed just as much. I was surprised this one hadn't been played yet as a MMR. It's truly a great indie masterpiece. Here's hoping they will surprise us with another offering in the future. Here's hoping I'm buying them Mexican food once again when they stop through town. "Can't remember if it's day or night, in the fire, in the fire."
