Best Band


Grunge. Nirvana. OK, now that we’ve gotten the two entries from the “Idiot’s Guide to Writing About Roomrunner” out of the way, let’s actually talk about this band. Roomrunner is really, incredibly fucking loud, but blissfully so—the aggressive, blaring guitars provide that rare release for both performer and listener. Ideal Cities, the band’s first proper long-player, worked so well because it moved the goalposts from the band’s first two EPs, revealing a diversified array of songs to go along with the piercing chords. The real secret to the band’s sound, though, is the pounding underbelly laid down by bassist Dan Frome and drummer Bret Lanahan. Which is to say they’re an overlooked part in a complete package. Here’s hoping David Geffen swoops in and makes them millionaires.
