I know nothing about this band I stumbled on them while looking through the (recommended) Kindercore Records catalogue, but I quite like them. Lots of English pop influences there, in the same way XTC took the Beatles & reinvented their psychedelia, these have too, there's a bit of Anglo - Celtic folk which reminded me of Jethro Tull of all things and lots of swirling organ. It's timeless, but if you're looking for something up to the minute, this is not for you.
At least they have avoided the whining vocals that seem compulsory with modern sesnsitive bands (Mercury Rev, Grandaddy, Flaming Lips, Sparklehorse...)
And everything is green!!! There's a song about golf for heaven's sake!
Not a classic, but a quality product.
