Being a bit impulsive I decided to buy their most recent release (Trouble) on the back of hearing a couple of the tracks on the radio. Being even more impulsive and having spotted this album going cheap, at the same time, I ordered it too.
This album arrived first and it was an instant favourite that has got better with every play (and I've played it a lot).
If there was any justice half the tracks on this album would have been sizeable hits as they manage to give very catchy tunes but with a depth too them.
There's a good variety on this album and I would suggest that if you like The Breeders, Strokes, Vampire Weekend, maybe, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, then this should appeal (and may well do so anyway).
At the moment I tend to get to play one or two albums a day max and for two weeks now I have played this album everyday.

The self titled debut album from this 3 piece NY band is not your typical generic indie-pop, it has an unusual quirky feel running through it especially the musical backing which is almost different on every song.
It's certainly never boring nor repetitive.
Amber has a lovely voice, particularly on the plaintiff almost spoken 'julie' and most of the tracks are very catchy although the longest track 'argonauts' is somewhat disjointed and a bit of a letdown.
For lovers of Savoir Adore, Standard Fare & Sky Larkin.
