Spokane was a slowcore band formed by singer-songwriter Rick Alverson in Richmond, Virginia, after the dissolution of his previous 10-member project Drunk. He founded the outfit in 1999 '..with the intention of exploring that small, quiet, sometimes disturbing (and most often ignored) space in life between events and behind the glare of the overly mentionable, and as a vehicle to stand (however quietly) in objection to the West's cultural addiction to the fast, loud and ostentatious'.

He released Leisure… read more

    I'd reccommend Ida and the Heart Like A River album if you like this kind of music.

    p.s. -- and if you're new to this band, for the love of god, don't let that absurd bio turn you off. This band produces some beautiful, ponderous music, a little like [artist]Bedhead[/artist] perhaps, or maybe even more so like [artist]Hood[/artist]. At the pace of minimalism and yet a bit too lush to *be* minimalist; a little too emotional and anchored for space rock; not enough obvious hooks to be shoegazer...but if you like music in those veins, then this band is well worth your consideration. If you've been a fan of [artist]The Antlers[/artist], then Spokane would make for an effective complement when you're looking to slow things down. In any case, they do beautiful work. Just disregard that ridiculous bio -- it does a gross disservice to a lovely, thoughtful bunch of musicians.

    I like this band quite a bit, and have been a listener for many years now -- but damn, whoever wrote the bio for this page is unbearably pretentious. I sure as hell hope it was written by some misguided prig of a fan, and not the band themselves: "... a vehicle to stand (however quietly) in objection to the west’s..." blah blah blah. Ugh, overwrought much?? As a professional writer, that degree of overt snobbery and obtuseness makes me cringe and grit my teeth. To whoever wrote that: Please, quit wiping your ass with the words that the rest of us have to use. Jeez-louise, have a beer and chill the frak out.
