I have to check out that band one of these days. Everyone keeps on mentioning them and they sound like the kinda thing I'd like.
also has an album called "music to sleep to" or something like that, by a band which i can't remember, which is an album of post rock lullabies.
it's impossible to listen to at night without falling asleep. i've only heard the end a couple of times!
