Joke band turned electroclash-ish trixters.

I like 'em.

I need to check more out by them - I heard one song on the radio and was really intrigued, and I see their album is getting pretty good reviews.

Saw them open for Of Montreal. They were enjoyable, but seemed all over the place (I think 3 different people sang during different songs, etc). Is the album more focused/concise?

I really like the single, 'Time To Pretend'.

Been listening to em for awhile. They're just okay. I know a few people who are obsessed with them, and I think that's a bit much.

Kids is a pretty great tune though.

Listening to it on Rhapsody for the first time -- I loved that song Time To Pretend immediately.

Seems to me they might be a "one hit wonder" with "Time To Pretend" being the obvious hit. But that's allright...the world needs more one hit wonders.

Listened to their stuff on MySpace and the sample bits from iTunes. Not sure if I will buy this, seems a bit of too-many-different-styles, but "Kids", "Electric Feel", "Time To Pretend" and "Of Moons, Birds and Monsters" sound really good.

And that video for "Time To Pretend" is just awesome!

Completely agree. And I'm surprised to see people say they are inconsistent or too varied in their style, because I find the album to be a fantastic cohesive whole.

Electric Feel is easily my favorite track. And the video...uh, yeah. Awesome. Loving these guys right now, even though I'm a little late getting on the bandwagon.

I dig a few tracks from the album. The ones I dig, I like a lot.
