SF WEEKLY -- The foursome met as students at San Francisco State, coming together over a shared love of DIY and indie bands like Yo La Tengo, Dinosaur Jr., Slint and Polvo. They honed their craft playing house shows around the Bay Area, earning a reputation for their frenzied, volatile performances. After releasing a few EPs, the group was contacted by Jessi Frick of the venerable San Francisco label Father/Daughter records, which subsequently offered to put out Uncontrollable Salvation.
