been listening to their album for a few weeks now since it got leaked on the net. pretty good listen i reckon. their cd along with lightspeed champion's falling of the lavender bridge are the 2 best releases so far in 2008.

Really only just started listening to them and I really like their sound.

I'd almost put the two albums as good as each other.

I'm wondering about the slight Indian/Bollywood influence in Contra. Or am I imagining it?

Anyone going to the Melbourne next Monday? I'm coming back to Victoria early especially for it, and I don't think I've been this excited about seeing a band for a while. They seem at that really exciting point where, like Arctic Monkeys, they've hit this really high point but that they've got a few more notches to go.

It's like Radiohead during OK Computer. They've made something sublime but you can't help but feel excited by what they're going to do next.

Not going to their show but saw their set at Falls.

Wallcott essentially blew my mind, what a way to ring in the new year.
