I don't think they invented the indie genre

I do love this band

I do only know about them because they toured with Brand New

Basically, Ben's right on with the Brand New point. I'd say a lot of there fans like them from seeing them or hearing about them from Brand New. I just don't think thats a bad thing. Plenty of bands get heard that way.

Did they play Where Have You Been?, or Wolves At Night again?

And am I the only one that doesn't think they sound that much like Built To Spill?

Probably. They do.

I'm not saying they don't sound like them at all. I just don't think they're as similar sounding as everyone else seems to think.

They are very similar sounding.

I might have missed where anyone says they don't.

Most people are just making the point that they can like a band even though they sound like another band.

I think they sound a lot like Built to Spill, but I like Andy's lyrics more. Also, their live show pushed them from being a band I really like to a band I go see every chance I get and listen to frequently.

If that's the post you're referring too, he said THAT MUCH. Meaning to him they sound like them somewhat, but not as much as people say. Which he clarified in his later post that said:

"I'm not saying they don't sound like them at all. I just don't think they're as similar sounding as everyone else seems to think."

So, show me the person again who said they sound nothing like them.

How the fuck do you not understand that I said they sound like them, but I don't think its that strong of a similarity?

Manchester Orchestra and Neutral Milk Hotel have one thing in common... Brand New. No one on AP cared for either until one opened and Brand New covered the other. I remember when it happened.

But hey, good music, so no complaints. It's just funny.

No way. NMH have been massive in the indie underground for a long long time. In the Aeroplane has sold 200,000 records, that's a hell of a lot more than just cause Jesse Lacey covered them.

But on this site, they weren't talked about until Holland, 1945 and Oh Comely were being covered almost every week by Jesse. I've lurked here and then posted here now for almost two years, they weren't mentioned until this spring. Which was my point.
