I was suprised to look into the indie forums and not find one about these guys. This band is one of the older mor influential indie bands of this decade. I will say that everytime I turn on my iPod these guys are one of the first things i turn to.
I like them, especially the keyboard player. I like their wierd percussion sounds too. Not drums but keyboard percussion sounds that fit in good with their songs.
yeah, i saw them in Nashville about a year ago. just fantastic. i can't say i've listened to a lot of their early stuff, but their past 3 albums i absolutely adore.
