Reseña de álbum

Omnibus collects all of short-lived alternative rock/country-folk quintet Tarkio's material from 1996 through 1999. The Montana collective led by future Decemberist Colin Meloy released one full-length record (I Guess I Was Hoping for Something More) and an EP (Sea Songs for Landlocked Sailors) of dusty pre-Americana college rock in the wake of the post-R.E.M.
