Episode Summary

Cymbals Eat Guitars cover Superchunk
We thought that Superchunk's "Detroit Has A Skyline" would be one of the last songs to go--and that it would take a particularly rocking band to do it justice. Of the final three songs, it made perfect sense for New York's Cymbals Eat Guitars, who stopped by the office the day before playing a blistering set at Lollapalooza. The band's debut, Why There Are Mountains, came out last year, and it's a raucous collision of Built To Spill, Modest Mouse, and even Cap'n Jazz. Most of those acts were rocking while the CEG guys were still in school; they're still in their early 20s. Cymbals' performance was easily the loudest Undercover yet; thankfully most of our neighbors had gone home when they stopped by.moreless
