764-HERO

764-Hero were part of the 2nd wave of Northwest bands to make it relatively big. Along with Sleater-Kinney, Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, etc, 764-Her0 reinvented the image of Northwest music, pushing it past the long-johns-wearing, illiterate backwoods grunge stereotype into decidedly more credible indie hipsterism. For better or for worse, it can be argued that this wave has had the most enduring effect on the image and sound of this corner of the world. This song is off their 3rd album for Up Records, entitled Get Here and Stay. It's my personal favorite from this duo-turned-trio. Here's a sampling, with "Ottowa Dropout".
