The Alternates is a band from Los Angeles, California fronted by Spencer Livingston. Their release of their EP Spiders and Webs was funded by fans from kickstarter. Their sound is a sort of alternative indie-rock mixed with a country/Americana kind of vibe. Don’t let the “country” tag scare you away though, there’s enough great guitar riffs to rock your world in the EP. I’m allowed to share with you the track called The Modern Way, which is actually the slower more subdued track in the song that is almost reminiscent of those sort of build up to a giant wall of sound indie tracks, except that they don’t and it remains quite chill.
