Ok, well, I have no idea how popular these guys are here but I couldn't find any threads on them, spelt properly or otherwise.

Anyway, I got these guy's album yesterday and I was just blown away.

Incredibly original and refreshing.

and they're from Boston

Myspace

I'm not sure if their music on Myspace works...

and

Official site

Check em out. There's no way to describe them.

coin Operated Boy= the most accessible song I've heard in ages.

I think they're pretty good...very original.

In fact, it's an album I wouldn't mind.

They're supposed to be pretty good live too, so I may have to go and see them.

I have the album and the live DVD. They are something special. Coin operated Boy is my least favourite song they have done though. It has nothing of the emotion of the style of the others.

saw them twice last year, the dvd only hints to how amazing they are live

they love to do covers live, check some of them out at automaticjoy, even if you're not a fan. listen to their cover of two headed boy from the 1/1/05 show, i was there

I've heard Coin Operated Boy and Missed Me and none of them caught my atention. They're original allright but that doesn't implie they have to be good.

yeh a woman at work likes them heaps - they gave themselves a genre - its something like brechian cabaret punk... and apparently its spot on.... but i dont know enough about that...

girl anachronism is an awesome song and coin-operated boy is so fun to play on the piano... i play it for people and they laugh like its something off play-school...

ay, finaly some who have heard of them. we dont see much of them here in europe, but thay play at Roskilde Festival last year, and did the greatest cover of War pigs. Its was great that Danish TV has repeated the show, once a week for ages.

Girl Anachronism is absoluly amazing. If ýou dont no them listen to that song, with your speakers turn up to the max...

They're alright, heard a few bits and pieces in the past but nothing really convinced me to pick up their album....

Even if I didn't like them, they'd still be cool because they're from Boston.

I thought they were pretty good. Such sick piano playing, nothing amazing, just so creative.

And they're pretty fucking hilarious live when inbetween songs.

I've only heard "Coin Operated Boy" and whenever it's played on the radio, I change stations until it's over.

Hmm, I like 'em, but I wish they would do more fast songs like Girl Anachronism.

I haven't heard any others like it, but I might be wrong.
you tell me who's better. i think good charlote are better than the bealtes but that's only because their lyrics mean more and they are better musicians.

^ http://www.automaticjoy.com/ is a pretty good site.

I listened to some of their new album on their myspace thing. I think it will be good but the first album is so excellent in my opinion it won't match it. Sex changes is superb but songs like Sing just seem lacklustre considering their talents.

one of my favourite bands though.

I've really been enjoying Yes, Virginia..., I listened to it 4 times through on their MySpace and just picked up my own copy about an hour ago. I don't know if it stands up to their last album since I never picked it up but I've really been liking this one.

Anyway, yeah, the new album isn't half chaotic enough
