I know nothing about this band, but I do believe that I dig their sound.  A new discovery for me?! 

Here is a stream of the new album, "Tripper":

I also checked out some of their older stuff, but I've barely scratched the surface.  Tell me what I need to know!!!


The Ruminant Band (their last record, put out in 2009) is extremely solid. It's the only one of theirs I have though. I do believe I'll be checking out that stream. Thanks for the post.
It's all happening.


I haven't heard them in a while. I used to have Mouthfuls (2003ish). I remember them being pretty solid indie.


Saw them this summer at a small festival in Oregon.  Hadn't heard of them, but LOVED them.  Super fun live!  :)
Give me a butt load of reverb on this one - just pile it on.


The first album I heard from them was Echolocation.  I have listened to that album over and over and love it.  I also like Ruminant Band.  I have Spelled in Bones too but this is the only real gem on it IMO:
