Desert City Soundtrack began in Portland, and featured Matt Carillo (guitars, vocals), Cory Gray (keys, vocals, trumpet), and Brian Wright (drums). Over a series of releases the trio perfected its lush, detached brand of indie rock that incorporated elements of Built to Spill, Sebadoh, Ben Folds Five, and the emo movement. DCS issued a few early 7"s before signing to Deep Elm and issuing the Contents of Distraction EP in 2002. The Funeral Car LP followed in 2003, and the band appeared on a Deep Elm split release with Sounds Like Violence and Settlefish. Perfect Addiction, the trio's second full-length, was released in September 2005. ~ Johnny Loftus
