Indie/ folk styled band based on depressing and maudlin themes, formed in 1995 and disbanded in 2003

I've been genuinely depressed the last few days, and listening to these guys is a great release. Beautiful songwriting. I love the use of the violin.

Love this band, but to be honest the sadness can get grating. It all sounds so gloom, it's like cheer up already jeez.

Honestly it seems like the whole band (or at least Jenn and Mat) has bipolar or serious depressive conditions haha. You can really hear real sorrow in their music, you can tell they've dealt with some harrowing personal issues. I'm actually very curious to learn what these issues are that inspired their music..

Surprised there's not a thread. Surprised honestly that you would dig them.

Really good shit. Slowcore's a bummer of a genre, but it's good for burning out on every couple months.

Fantastic band, especially very early in the morning. So You Wanna Be a Superhero is like the ultimate insomniac anthem.

This really is music made for the manically depressed haha.

It's full of self pity and resentment. But it comes from a very real place. It's very interesting to notice how the context and sound of their music changes depending on your own mood!

Oh no problem man.

I can't stop. Although I probably should.

I always try to balance it out with Miami Horror or something similar after every listen. But sometimes you just can't pick me up off the floor.

I have Songs About Leaving on vinyl, easily one of my favorite records. Probably the best Sadcore band out there.
