I was wondering if anyone has heard of this band. I did a search and didn't find any threads or posts about them. Heard two of their songs today and I am really liking "Mansard Roof." Here is a link below (can not post urls yet since my post count is so low).

What do you guys think about this band?

I've got it and I can't stop listening to it. Wonderful pop music, very easy listening. There isn't a song on there that I wanted to skip. Finally, Pitchfork got something right. Link to the review.

The insanely fun video for one of the best songs on the album, A-punk:


Awesome stuff...

Ya, I've been listening to this myself. And ya, it is excellent. So much fun. I prefer it to everything else I've tried in January so far save Times New Viking and possibly that Drive-By Truckers album.

LOL, yeah they're feckin' ghastly. But there was something altogether about it, something quite uncanny, that made it so listenable at the same time!
