Seam


Seam began as a three-piece in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Although Seam’s “pedigree” included Bitch Magnet and Superchunk, Seam’s reticent melodicism and subtly moving guitar washes occupy a realm quite different than the illustrious pasts of Seam’s members might suggest.
The band's third album continues Seam's tradition of sleepy, droning (but beautiful and affecting) music. The band's new lineup seems to work well with Park's musical sensibilities; Are You Driving Me Crazy? is as creative and moving as anything else the band has accomplished.
