If you came-of-age in the '90s, you might be feeling a huge wave of nostalgia these days. It seems every act from decade, no matter how small or marginal, is reuniting for tours, reissuing albums and are generally taking one last run at fame. And two more bands from the decade are ready to work your mixtape heart with a couple of documentaries.

If You're Feeling Sinister Silkworm

If you came-of-age in the '90s, you might be feeling a huge wave of nostalgia these days. It seems every act from decade, no matter how small or marginal, is reuniting for tours, reissuing albums and are generally taking one last run at fame. And two more bands from the decade are ready to work your mixtape heart with a couple of documentaries.

First up is Belle & Sebastian, the Scottish popsters who have been delivering their brand of twee pop since 1996 and are still going strong, have participated in a full length, one hour movie about their breakout album If You're Feeling Sinister for Pitchfork. If you were anywhere near a college radio station in the '90s, this was a staple, a smart, witty, melancholy and romantic album that still stands as one of their finest. It's a pretty great look, especially for fans, with frontman Stuart Murdoch leading discussion of the album, along with every member of the band who participated. The doc contains lots of great archival footage, too. Seriously, set aside sixty minutes for this one.

And when you're done, you can continue your trip down memory lane with "Couldn't You Wait?" This doc centers around the more underground, but no less respected Silkworm, an incredibly prolific indie rock band who never quiet achieved the heights of fame that their contemporaries did. Nonethelss, the bonafides speak for themselves with Steve Albini, Jeff Tweedy, Stephen Malkmus, Gerard Cosloy of Matador Records, Mission of Burma's Clint Conley and more contributing interviews, as well as the surviving band members (drummer Michael Dahlquist was tragically killed in 2005). Watch the trailer and if you like it, you can buy the movie right here for as little as $5.
