Creeper Lagoon is a lovable indie rock band from the Bay area whose somewhat staid, lo-fi, bar band style is aided by unusual instrumentation (marimbas, hip-hop inflected drum machines, grand piano fills) and inventive production. (some songs on their debut LP I Become Small and Go were produced by Dust Brother John King) Their first EP, Creeper Lagoon was met with relative indifference. However, their debut LP received a rave review from Spin, and other sources, and Creeper was later voted Best New Artist of '98 in Spin Magazine. In the writer's modest opinion: Creeper's debut album is an interesting listen that's halfway between Sebadoh-ish pop and ambient noodlery. It's been a constant favorite in my CD rack, and it's modestly priced at http://creeperlagoon.com.
