I've heard quite a bit about them online, and just read a boatload of rave reviews for their album, so now it is my sworn duty to track down some tunes and check them out.

... and hope it's not some typical indie shit that I'll automatically loathe. :wink:

By the way, the album is a whopping $7.99 at Target until the 4th.

I read about this album on Pitchfork *runsandhides* I did't pay much attetion though, but with your recommendation I will listen this stuff

I've listened to a few clips on YouTube and liked what I've heard, so I might pick up their album. Sounds like good summer music.

If you shout... 01-31-2008 02:58 AM

Not worth picking up. A few amazing songs, but little else. I have NO idea what the fuck all the fuss is about.

Weren't we supposed to hate Graceland, like, six months ago? WTF?

Can't not like a band with a name like that.

And 'Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa' is pretty cool...

The train rolls on...

Yeah, it's good. But don't go expecting something on the level of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's first album.

You're right, it's not annoying garbage.

:wink:


Seriously though, what's with the constant unrelated comparisons?

It sounds like Graceland, in case you were wondering. Not sure if you thought my "comparison" applied. Either way, no worries. "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa" and "Oxford Comma" are both pleasant enough. I've been listening to them two tracks quite a bit, lately.

I'd be perfectly happy with it not sounding anything like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They fall into that "blah indie music that does nothing for me" category.

A friend just told me about them the other day and I watched this video then. I liked it but didn't feel the need to run out and buy it. I need to hear more.

Woah what the hell.

Just listened to Cape Cod... on Myspace. This is really unique :dance:

EDIT: Just listened to Oxford... Tom Petty chorus with yodeling and sparse production. What the fuck this is great :lol:

Might catch them on tour in March http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6...ies/dancer.gif
