The And/Ors

The And/Ors is, apparently, an indie rock supergroup of sorts, composed of former members of a bunch of bands of which I've never heard (not meant as a slam). Their first album (2001), Will Self Destruct, received rave reviews: see or A short list of bands to which they've been compared: Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Guided By Voices, Big Star, Pavement, Television, Replacements, and Sonic Youth. In other words, every beloved, influential alternative band of the last 30 years, so you're gonna love them. has 3 of their songs available for free downloading: As We Play the Tape Tricks Us, Flexiclocks, and Screams Nicole. The first 2 are my favorites but they're all good. Note that Screams Nicole is posted twice for some reason. These songs definitely show off the Pavement and GBV influences.

You can read more about the band on the website of their record label, Better Looking Records. That site also has 2 of the 3 downloads available on
