While A Band is Something to Figure Out is filled with anthems destined for superstardom, "Are We Failing?" is decidedly smaller and more indie. It reminds me of really early solo Lou Barlow, more Sentridoh than Sebadoh, but with better production. It's only 1:20 long, starting off with a blast of feedbacky noise, and the rest of the song is extraordinarily minimalist and sounding looped, even though I don't think it is.
