From: Athens, Georgia
I first heard of them: when someone on MTV mentioned that they were popular on college radio
Sound: they went through many phases, but it seems like any attempt at a description has to prominently feature the word "jangle"
Listening station: R.E.M. is one of the few bands I've seen live, but in this case it wasn't because I was a huge fan — a bunch of people I knew were going and they had extra tickets, so I figured what the hey.
