This is one of those CDs that I discovered at a listening station. A local band that I've never heard of, but I put on the headphones in HMV and was immediately intrigued.

Most of the reviews that I've read draw a parallel with Neutral Milk Hotel due to their use of horns. But not being very familiar with that band, my reaction was more Rheostatics meet The Deadly Snakes, with a horn section. Although there are probably better comparisons, my knowledge of this indie sound is still somewhat limited.

After I bought the CD, there was a long article on the band in our weekly entertainment tabloid. The article mentioned how the band never rehearsed. They just do their shows and whatever happens, happens. I'm not really sure how they could put together a tight CD with this approach, but it seems to be working.

You can check out a few tracks here ( I can see a few people on this board digging this band.
