And we were really impressed, in fact had it on today. loads of different influences and really really tight live
but I donno much other than hearing that EP on spotify. Sounded alright to my ears. But there was a thread about them last week for that errors show I believe..

best new band of 09
have got them on at bardens on the 6th of may aswell. the square pusher show would be good..
...if you count Mike D. The atmosphere was amaaaazing.
would you say Sigur Ros were over-hyped, because they were the one Icelandic band who broke through in 2000? or that they were good enough for people to listen, and had been crafting their sound for 6 years, until they could transcend fashion? same story with BLK JKS

...via some hyperbolic statements made by a couple of people. Funny thing hype. Has lots of negative connatations but is very important in getting new music heard.
However you slice it, I think I may be heading to Bardens...
I wish I had some money, or someone to go with :(
