Seam

At The L Magazine, Tobias Carroll's list of top (but unlikely) candidates for the deluxe reissue treatment is topped by one of my old favorites, Seam:

Hey, with Bitch Magnet, Temporary Residence has already reissued one of Sooyoung Park’s bands’ bodies of work. And Seam are a fantastically underrated band — over the course of three albums for Touch & Go, they did the anguished loud/quiet/loud thing better than almost anyone. But there’s also a host of music from them that’s now out of print: from their debut album Headsparks to their final single "Sukiyaki," also featuring a fine cover of David Bowie’s "Heroes."

The Problem With Me and Are You Driving Me Crazy? are both excellent, and highly recommended.
