Anyone else impressed by them? Two guys - two gals - with a minimalistic approach. Schooled musicians who thought they would play jazz for a living, but wound up doing this, instead.

Their first-ever TV appearance was on The Colbert Report, February 5, 2014.

"You Go Down Smooth"
4 minutes

For best quality:
Pause the video when it starts.

Not sure how I ended up finding them, but I like their stuff! Ordered Fun Machine when I first heard about it, then got the rest of their stuff. Gotta like bands that the musicians actually can play, and it's not full of studio tricks and treats!

They actually remind me of an early Barenaked Ladies before they got weird....and tried TOO hard to make it happen...

Nice, thanks!
My sister asked me to send her new music, and I use this forum as source for that. This is on the way to her inbox too!
