Small Brown Bike is a band from Marshall, Michigan  that started in 1996. The trademark of Small Brown Bike is their "double vocals" backed by melodies. Their sound is often identified as being similar to other post-hardcore bands, such as Avail, Hot Water Music and Dillinger Four. Throughout their existence, Small Brown Bike have toured three times with Dead Season. Their last show was in 2004 at The Fireside Bowl in Chicago, after already agreeing to split up. Former members Mike Reed and Dan Jaquint later created the band LaSalle, with Reed's wife playing bass guitar. Ben Reed also started the Great Sea Serpents based out of Chicago, IL. Mike and Ben have also formed the band Able Baker Fox with former drummer Jeff Gensterblum and Nathan Ellis from the Casket Lottery. Their first album "Voices" was released in January 2008.  The band name is derived from working on bicycles as they grew up together.  (Wikipedia)

The Riverbed is Small Brown Bike's 2004 full-length LP, which was released via Lookout! and No Idea records.  Some consider this to be Small Brown Bikes' best album, but I'll leave that opinion up to you because Small Brown Bike is pretty much my favorite emo band of all time.  Anyway, The Riverbed is a killer LP and still sounds fresh to this day even though it was released over a decade ago.  highly recommended!  Enjoy!
