  • This THE greatest indie rock band. No doubt.

  • how the fuck did I miss these guys. great songs
  • Love at first listen! :)
  • hello people please listen to things that are not icky mettle so the charts can change and be interesting n stuff thank you
  • Sorry dude, I've been searching also for an AOL alike sounding band but still haven't found any. Got to say that most of the indie of then & now really can bore the shit out of me, but AOL just got these special sounds which are great. Harnessed In Slums, The Lowest Part Is Free, ... What you can do is check out some skateboard videos, maybe you'll find some good music like AOL. That's how I got to know 'em, the Element skateboard video "Elementality vol. 1".
  • Decided to check in on the group to see if any of you had heard any tidbits on new material...oh well...we can always hope. Any more reunion shows? Only got to see them the one time in the mid-90s and they so kicked my ass. Looking for similar artists? all the recommendations I've seen are from bands that were in the same scene but AOL had a sound very much of their own and I've yet to hear anything else out there that fills my AOL cravings. The guitars were definitely inspired from what Polvo was doing, but then went for hooks aplenty and Eric has such an awesome world-weary voice. The new remasters have been a great listen...
  • literally everyone in the world wants you to make a new album
  • I really want to see them live... Been watching videos from some of the reunion shows, and it's just looking fantastic. Jealous of everyone who got to see them.
  • Nothing innovative, or all that different, but enjoyable nonetheless.
