Full of pleasant surprises. If upon your first or second listen you don't find yourself bobbing your head with the music or feeling the urge to get up and dance then you better check your pulse - you might be dead. Cool, compelling grooves, very much unlike anything I've ever heard. These guys have the subtle complexity of Sonic Youth on Prozac, with shades of Beastie Boys and a strong dose of je ne sais quoi. The title track is just WAY COOL.
