Sicbay - Overreaction Time

Year: 2003
Label: Fifty Four Forty Or Fight

Sicbay features Nick Sake formerly of Dazzling Killmen and Colossamite, and you can hear those bands in the mix, but this new group lets the listener up for air more often. Certainly they can pound you into dust, but there are just as many delicate passages that heighten one's awareness of what's about to come. It sounds like a band raised on equal parts midwestern noise rock, and the math rock of Slint and Polvo. 

They released a second lp, and broke up in 2006. You can still find their releases on the Fifty Four Forty Or Fight website here.
