Curiouser and curiouser. I don't remember when/how I ended up with 'Pathetic Aesthetic,' in my music collection, but I came here to see who The Librarians were since I've had them on frequent cycle lately. Now I learn they are (very) NOT the Major Label faux-lo-fi styly dudes I envisioned, but a 1999-2000ish East Bay house show band? I was at East Bay house shows back then, but am also certain I never heard of The Librarians til now. Not surprising, given the infinitely splintered Bay Area music scene--this was not my splinter. Funny that I'm drawn to the music now, though, and I'm happy to find myself a 'top listener' (albeit belatedly).
