Beatrice Nine

Californian band Beatrice Nine took a fairly straightforward college/indie rock approach on their Zero Hour Records album Little Stars Hung Upside Down, released in 1996 at the height of post-grunge-dom. Moody vocals, quiet/loud dynamics, chunky guitars, and the rest of the standard alterna faire are all present, but the songwriting is solid, and this track, "To Girlfriend", brings an interesting psych-pop element to the mix. The band went on to release one more record, Incredible Husk, in 1998.

  1. Believe it or not they managed a third album titled "be nothing" in 2000. It is fantastic but hard to find. The demos that preceded Little Stars are also fantastic. Get in touch if you would like to hear any of it.
