Language Advisory: This is a live concert recording, and may not contain language suitable for all audiences.

In many ways, Archers of Loaf are a lot like their Sasquatch billmates Guided By Voices: a canonical indie band long out of commission, whose hooky guitar rock has only grown more beloved in the years they've been away. Lead man Eric Bachmann has kept busy since the Archers hung it up in 1998, releasing records under his own name and as Crooked Fingers. But for fans who thought they'd never hear "Web In Front" live again, the band's current string of reunion dates is a welcome surprise.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Sunday, May 29, Archers of Loaf perform here as part of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
