Headed up by Alex Schaaf, the NYC-based band have released three LPs and four EPs since March 2009. They've also recently picked up a third member -- Jon Natchez -- formerly part of Beirut, who contributes with bass and horns.
The track on this post is "Whale," which has a sound mildy reminiscent of something put together by Sufjan Stevens. It's awesomely original, and has definitely inspired me to try and catch them at SXSW.
Their SXSW lineup includes:
-- 3/17 "” BirdDog Promo - The Aquarium - 8:45pm
-- 3/18 "” Muzzle of Bees Backyard BBQ - 3217 1/2 Hampton Rd - 1pm
-- 3/18 "” Billions Official Showcase - Antone's - 10pm
