Genre: jazz, math rock, indie
If you've never heard of Seattle's Sharks Keep Moving, you probably have heard of the bands that sprung from its ashes: Minus the Bear, Pretty Girls Make Graves, and The Blood Brothers to name a few. I've discussed with Daniel that I'd probably give up any Minus the Bear album for another SKM album, and I'd definitely give up any Blood Brothers or Pretty Girls Make Graves album. With a jazzy edge that I've never really heard since, these guys made some pretty amazing music that has stood the test of time. I'd start with the full length and then move onto the EP's ("Pause and Clause" is my favorite) and singles. My favorite tracks are probably "Jet's Jets," "Sailor," and "Like a River."
