The Slip

The Slip began their career firmly entrenched in the jam band scene, but as time passed, members changed, and tastes within the group shifted, they evolved into a guitar-heavy indie rock band. Founded in the early '90s at the Tabor Academy, a New England boarding school, the Slip originated as a classic rock cover band featuring the Barr brothers: Brad Barr on guitar and vocals and Andrew Barr on drums and percussion, as well as guitarist Jon Myers. After Brad's graduation in 1995, Andrew met up with bassist Marc Friedman in one of the school's jazz ensembles. When Brad returned from Colorado a year later, he began to play out with Myers, Friedman, and Andrew. Myers left the band, and the remaining trio enrolled at the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, MA, but eventually dropped out to concentrate on playing professionally. By 1996, they self-released their debut album, From the Gecko, which was inspired by Miles Davis' seminal B**ches Brew. In the spring of 1999, Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks saw the band in concert and signed them to his new Flying Frog Records imprint, which released Does in 2000. After signing to Rykodisc the following year, the Slip issued Angels Come on Time -- which was recorded in Phish's barn -- in summer 2002.

The Slip's musical direction changed radically over the next few years, drawing on influences ranging from Can and U2 to Built to Spill and the Postal Service. A companion live set issued in 2003 on their own 216 Records, containing the albums Aliveacoustic and Alivelectric, reflected these changes. As they spent more time in their home studio, the Slip continued to move further away from their initial approach toward a more indie rock-inspired sound. In March 2005, the group began work on its fourth studio album with co-producer Mark Ellard; its first single, "Even Rats," was featured in the Playstation 2 game Guitar Hero. The band performed throughout the spring of 2005 under the moniker Surprise Me Mr. Davis, featuring Nathan Moore on vocals and guitar; they also continued to perform -- sometimes in two-band shows along with Apollo Sunshine -- using their original name of the Slip. Live at Lupo's, recorded live at a summer 2004 Rhode Island show, appeared in January 2005 before the Slip returned with a new full-length that showcased their new sound. Eisenhower was released in the fall of 2006 through Bar/None Records. ~ Jesse Jarnow, Rovi

Hmmm, I'm liking it.
John Scofield called and wants his sound effects back!
This is the worst description for a band I have ever read. Indie rock?. Who cares where these guys went to highschool? How about how the drummer lived with a tribe on the ivory coast of Africa and studied drums; That seems a lot more relevant. Bottom line these guys JAM! All three of them are incredible musicians. The Slip should have never done any studio work in my opinion. You gotta see them live to fully appreciate their sound, or find some old recordings.
nice
Love the song Even Rats, but the album's a bit of a let down
debradbooth
very nice
Interesting stuff. Reminds me alot of artists like The Bad Plus, MMW,hipbone, e t c . All fusion and off the map from mainstream. I'd like to see this group jam live.

This artist gets my approval
to me indie is a mind set more than anything else... they can come from anywhere... my indie band is all about expression in abstract ways... to me they did that! yes abit generic, but still good
bigdprender
apparently "indie" bands only come from dirty garages...NE boarding schools are more notorious for creativity than elitism...ev e n if it is creative brain cell depletion
Maybe I'm being a reverse snob, but I have a hard time classifying a band that forms at a New England boarding school as being "indie" - it seems a little too elitist. Their sound is okay, if a little generic.
If I'm not mistaken, none of members changed since they released From The Gecko. Whatever the case, one of my favorite bands.
F**k dat s**t.
"suffocation keep" is a nice straight ahead song. i'm concerned to thumbs up it. you know, the slip-->phish - - > j a c k johnson, as all roads lead to jack johnson.

It's kinda weird how much like scofield this is. Great musicians.
I wonder if all of their songs sound like Scofield?
jay.pare
This band is a hidden gem. I have seen them in concert over 20 times. Just terrific musicianship , songwriting, and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
I'm convinced this track is really Scofield w/ MM&W.
Sounds like Andrew Bird without the whistling and happiness.

mm..i like it lots :)
very chill and definitely my kind of music.
josimpso
That groove sounds just like Stanton Moore and Galactic at first. Good stuff!
UNDERCOVER JAM BAND ALERT! NOOOOOOOOOOO O O O ! ! ! ! !
I saw these guys at Bonnaroo a couple of years ago and they put on a great live show.
I am new to their music, but it is emotionally deep and keeps the background simple, which allows for a lot of emphasis on their poetic lyrics. Excellent jamband!
Weird, in a BAD way.
even rats is the BEST song to play on guitar hero haha.
jakrasil
where is that Mr Davis?

these guys are solid.
