There's no better way to get to know Dan McGee & the guys than a show in a packed club on a Friday night. Watch the set below.

Spider Bags' Merge debut Frozen Letter will be in stores next week, but the full album is now streaming at NPR Music.

In their description of the album, NPR writes:
What's made Spider Bags such a worthwhile band to follow, aside from peeling back scalps with blistering fuzz when they want to, is McGee's preternatural understanding of his niche. He writes songs that reach back to the canon but retain more personality than almost any in the garage spectrum, solely on his words and riffs, and he lands both with a lot of comfort and a little abrasion.

Visit NPR Music now to stream Frozen Letter and pre-order the album now on CD or LP in the Merge store.
