    Their latest cd is fantastic !! Definitely on my must see list. They remind me a bit of Midlake.

    Just had the pleasure of seeing these guys at Lincoln Hall in Chicago last night. Unreal musicianship between all of the band members. Definitely a MUST SEE on the Polo Fileds. Can't put it into words. Briefly talked with the lead singer and they are really looking forward to playing Coachella. Radiohead is lucky to be able to see them every night on their tour. Do yourself a favor and see this show.

    Deserved Bump. It's cool to see the amount of fans this band has gained over the past month or so.

    These guys used to be in a band called Kunek and the had an album in 2006 called Flight of the Flynns. I highly recommend checking it out. It's their best work. They don't play any of it live though

    They're still really cool live though. The band members are very memorable. The singers sad-looking face and kind eyes really made an impression on me. Plus the asian chick is really cute.

    Opening for Radiohead will do that for a band. I do find their music very interesting and look forward to seeing them in April.

    Really enjoyed their opening set for Radiohead tonight short though it was. Will definitely be looking to check out their full set at Coachella.

    tamer animals was one of my favourite albums last year, and most notably the title track
    i agree that it had a real feel of the national.. i wasnt aware they had other albums
    i shall have to do some extra investigating

    glad im not the only one excited to see them

    I really want to see these guys and only a few acts would trump them. My worry is a Explosions in the Sky conflict at sunset. Not sure which one I would go with.

    New video posted on their FB from their Paris gig during the break from the Radiohead tour. Really excited to see them.

    I had the pleasure of having a couple of beers with them after the KC Radiohead show. Very chill crowd they brought from Oklahoma... good people and they sound incredible live.

    Great set in KC. I met Jesse during the show. He is as cool as it gets. Definitely check out their set. I am looking forward to seeing them in the Coachella setting.
