The band’s lyrics don’t necessarily connect the dots to their gritty, elliptical music. This isn’t meant as criticism; the band excels at conveying moods – but you’re left with a choice: follow the rhythm or get lost in the obscurity of the lyrics. Their music begs comparison to the laconic whimsy of Syd Barrett-era folk-psychedelia, with a healthy dose of slacker-cool Elephant 6. Song structures be damned, they tend towards atmospherics, plenty of samples and noise, all of which works well with their solid, quaaludes-induced vibe.
