Remember indie rock? If you're an indie rocker, you probably do. The Doers do, too. They build on previous indie rock models for most of their Ready, Set... Do LP, a compilation of Blocks-friendly tunes, and the I Can Enjoy Almost Anything EP (which features Mike Watt on bass for all but one track). The models I refer to encompass numerous styles, including but not limited to the herky-jerkiness of bands like Polvo and the squealing, shouted vocals of Superchunk. The sweet news is that this loose synthesis of styles gives them a fairly clear sound of their own. It also says something that the Watt-less LP holds up as well as the disc with contributions from the "duke of bass."
The Doers play Wavelength at Sneaky Dee's Sunday (October 24).
