Something happened to me when I heard Why? for the first time. Lil played them to me in Paris back in March and I can safely say that 80% of my music listening time since then has been dedicated to them. I am addicted. I have never heard enough. How do they do it?
Despite the fact that I was in the country when they played ALT back in April and that I had a ticket for their gig in Paris the following week, I still havn't managed to see them yet. So when I heard they'll be playing Andrew's Lane again in November I was so excited I almost wet myself. Well not really but I did do my, “my new favorite band are playing” dance. I checked the ticketmaster website everyday until they went on sale, and I am now the proud owner of a ticket.
For those of you who aren't familiar with them yet ive decided to start describing them as the world's greatest band. Maybe im exaggerating a little, but you wont know for sure until you give them a listen. And they're friends with cool bands like Deerhoof and Islands on myspace so if that isn't reason enough to give them a chance then I just don't know what is.
And for your viewing pleasure;
