Default Flying Saucer Attack

Does anyone know/like this band? I guess technically they're a "post-rock" band, but they have a vocalist and some of their songs actually show semblances of song structures... In any case, they're very good, I recently got Further, their second album, and it blew me away. Very mellow, dreamy music.

Go buy or download or whatever floats your boat.

I'm not going to put favorite songs since I think they're a more album-oriented band rather than song-oriented.

Do I detect a hint of irony in there?
Like mirrorball I've never heard of them.

No not irony

It`s just really weird hearing it done as a post rock type song.

I quite like it

Edit: I uploaded it here if anyone is interested , no idea if it works or not.

Great band, I dig their sound. So far I only own a compilation called Distance, but I plan on getting their studio albums soon.

One of the most enticing front covers ever. And the album is exceptional too.
