References:

This week's fav: "Out of Reading with Gallic laced Stereolabelled avant-pop filtered through folksiness and electronica with viola, theramin and spacey synths, vocals in English, French and Spanish. A heady cocktail of mown grass and absinthe" ("What's On", Birmingham's answer to Time Out)

or for the more discerning listener: "You're shite" (Paul Mead, Essex)

Strengths and Weaknesses:
Strengths include excellent presentation and dress sense, impeccable record collections and of course,fantastic songs. Weaknesses? Well, we're never going to be as big as Travis are we?
