The Jim Yoshii Pile-Up

Halloween weekend and I've got the flu. Excellent timing! I figured I would make the most of my bedridden time and update this here blog. If you haven't heard of these guys you're in for a treat. The Jim Yoshii Pile-Up has the slow-core Northwestern style down completely. In other words, they sound a lot like Death Cab for Cutie before Death Cab for Cutie became this.

They have a handful of releases but these are the only ones that I have. If anyone has something I don't have, please send it my way and I can post it. They have their full discography listed on their website. Their latest/last album "Pick Us Apart" is definitely my favorite and features the song "Silver Sparkler" which is worth the download alone. Enjoy!

Pick Us Apart (2005)

Homemade Drugs (2002)
