Seldom was a Seattle-based pop-rock trio. Their line-up consisted of piano, bass, and drums, but some songs included electric guitar, mellotron, strings, or other keyboard instruments. They toured in support of both Pedro the Lion and Sarah Shannon. Both of their releases were on Casa and their 2002 album "Romance" was distributed by Barsuk Records.
