That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I like 'em. I've been listening to Oracular Spectacular a lot lately. Not the most visceral of music, but it's good fun.

I go to Wesleyan (where the band originally formed) and they're quite big here (and have been for a while). At most dance parties it seems kids is played at least once.
They have a (somewhat) new video that is deliciously trippy.

Haha, lovely way to start the thread. Opinions are are good though.

I really like Indie Rokkers... gay name but good song. Sorta has a dark feel to it. I like it.

I had never hear that song before so I just downloaded it, and wow. Very catchy, meaningful song. It is now one of my favorites.

I like the song weekend wars.


This might be a stretch but in "Time to Pretend" do the vocals remind anyone else of Conor Oberst?

Well, I stumbled across the video of them performing Time To Pretend on Letterman and I thought it was awesome, but then I listened to some of their other songs and didn't really like them... I don't even like the recorded version of Time To Pretend that much... Oh well.

No offense but I've been checking into these guys lately and they seem to be this psychadelic group that I was thinking would have crazy music. It really doesn't seem that way, most of what I've listened to is pretty poppy actually. I should've figured for how popular they actually are. So is the like crazy psychadelic part just an act to get attention? cuz the videos were pretty trippy but the music didn't really seem that way...idk I don't really like what I've heard not really anything special

They have a very Klaxons vibe

When I first heard them I thought they were crap, but they are quickly growing on me

Klaxons?I dont hear that at all.
I think Oracular Spectacular is a really good album, the youth and kids are my favourite on it.

After avoiding this band (the funky clothes and hype kinda put me off them) I finally heard this band via my friend who showed me their album the other day. I must say I'm really liking what I hear...the psychedlic electro pop style doesn't sound contrived at all and they clearly have a knack for writing great pop tunes.

I will get the album soon.
