The End of Sound Team

News of the Sound Team break-up was unfortunate to say the least. This band has been in the minds of many over the last couple years and while some may be quick to blame this on the Pitchfork effect; I'd wager that it's far great than that. This one reeks of major label mismanagement. Capitol's mistreatment of the band was blatantly obvious as we noted a couple times last year. The label subsequently dropped the band shortly after their release of Movie Monster. In the end, it's a classic case study for a Lefsetz letter. Sad and just one more reason why we should be weary when indie bands we love make that leap to a major.
