Broken Water would do a mean Sebadoh cover.
The band throws us further from the scent by housing two members of the west-coast Sisters, who sported some Sonic Youthy east coast chops.
But Broken Water are from Olympia, not the East Village or Massachusetts, so if you're going to hear the glum pre-grunge past in the forlorn male vocals and the crankin' guitar solo, pick off contemporaries like Talbot Tagora, who would make some great touring buds for their current trip with Whet, their new LP out this week on Night People. Or refer to our new compendium of favorite Sub Pop antiquities, some of which might offer some clues.
Order that LP here.
