i had never even heard of this los feliz based band until my friend matteo invited me to their show at the music box at the fonda last night. before the show, we watched their performance on david letterman from january 16th, and i instantly fell in love. my obsession drastically multiplied after i saw them live. though the band has been together since 2006, their popularity soared last year after kroq, indie 103.1, and 98.7fm put "sometime around midnight" by the then unsigned band on the airwaves. they were immediately signed, and are now on their way to superstardom. the music is very "morrisey-esque". even the sad songs will make you smile and bring you back to the lost innocence of your teens. every band number brings intelligence and a thorough understanding of music to the stage, and they often bring a string quartet to their performances. just added to the coachella 2009 lineup, i predict that they will be at the grammy's in no time! go to their website and watch the letterman performance. you will get hooked.
