yeah i run into accidental rhyming once in a while but anyhows, if you like really ambient half-emo-half-artsy fartsy experimental anti-folk...just beautiful laid back music, and if you wanna get an idea have a listen here, they did the soundtrack for the show Friday Night Lights.
their music is way more than you might expect and can cause a crying fit, but hold tight anyway, i highly suggest this to any indie rock fan.

I'm a huge fan of these guys...it's really sentimental and uplifting so it's always great to see other people appreciate their stuff. If you get chance, seeing and hearing them play live is a real treat. 'The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place' is their best in my opinion, but pretty much all of it is good.
I understand that the lack of lyrics can be a bit of a stumbling-block for some, but I have quite a lot of instrumental music in my collection and it can be really varied and expressive.

I've loved this band for years, ever since I first bought The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place (bought the CD because I liked the cover ;P) and looks like I might finally see them live this year at Primavera Festival so stoked! _________________ not a bug - a feature.
