Location hardly seems to really matter anymore in the blogosphere, however. Sioux Falls are a band that couldn’t come from anywhere but the northwest. Sioux Falls are a band steeped in the northwestern indie rock history of groups like Built to Spill and Modest Mouse. Although at first Sioux Falls may seem willing to live completely in the shadow of their 90s idols (I’m really just guessing that those groups are their idols… I mean shoot who doesn’t love Modest Mouse and Built to Spill?), the group brings a sweaty, DIY intensity that is far more rooted on solid ground than it is in the clouds day dreaming. If there is anything that Sioux Falls make clear on their new EP its that this is just the beginning for the band.
