These guys are excellent, have been compared to Arcade Fire.

There are several tracks for download as well as some tracks from Flashy Python and the Body Snatchers, frontman Alec Ounsworth's side project from the link below
Cool. The two songs on that site for download happen to be my two favorite CYHSY songs.

Apart from the opening track it's a pretty decent album. Can't see the Arcade Fire reference though, seems like typical lazy journalism.

i'll give you that, and to be fair i dont think they themselves were particularly bad, the sound system though was dire.

Finally heard the album today even though I bought it about 2 weeks ago.

As if by a total coincidence the last album I listened before playing it was 'The Name Of This Band Is Talking Heads'.

So it`s probably fair to say I would have liked it more had it not been for that.

I don't really see the Talking Heads' comparisons aside from the voice, but I love CYHSY. Awful live, but still a really good band.

As an aside, I really like the opening. When I first heard it I was hoping the rest of the album would be a little different then your run of the mill Indie Rock. I was a little disappointed that it wasn't, but I still like it.
