well, not to put too fine a point on it, but that's how i described
their first single, _nevada downs_, not the band itself.  that is to
say, i'm not sure that there's anything essentially "lo-fi" about the
*band*.  they've done some good 4-track recordings and i'm sure they'll
do more before they're finished, but something tells me the state champs
will be perfectly happy to be pretty much as slick as what they have money
for, recording-wise...
