Good news, the last two albums were pretty great.
We were able to get an interview with their lead singer about his creative process (and birds) in August. Check it out: http://www.playgroundmisnomer.com/2011/08/30/songwriter-spotlight-interview-with-jonathan-meiburg/ We also got one with former bandmate Will Sheff.
hopefully will see some UK dates announced soon too

Will be checking this out.

I think that's where the gated reverb snare sound was born as well so blame him for that.
