For those who swooned over the sweet, sideways indie-pop of The Spinanes back in the '90s, the return of singer-guitarist Rebecca Gates can only be a good thing. Since The Spinanes' dissolution in 2000 — the band was never much more than her and drummer Scott Plouf, who left in 1996 to join Built to Spill — Gates has played with a variety of supporting players while working on her visual art and keeping a lower public profile. Her latest album is titled The Float.
Recorded live at The Gorge on Saturday, May 28, she performs here with her band Rebecca Gates & The Consortium as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
