I saw these guys open for mewithoutYou last year. They were pretty good but I never really looked into them much further after the show.

They have a new album as well. I read that Marionette and the Music Box was mostly just an experiment in narrative, and they wrote the songs to follow a story that came with the album. They're a good band, but they kind of fall on the boring side of "post-rock".
