    What a shame. I remember purchasing the first album and being blown away. Strange We Should Meet Here helped me through one of the worst experiences of my life and opened myears to genres I never had given a chance. Thanks guys.

    I wish they would come back :( Yesterday I was driving my friend home and listening to Idiot pilot in the stereo and I told him how I still remember to the very last exact detail my first time I heard their Strange we should meet here album... at that particular time, their music seemed just like tailored made for me, like something I was missing and it just came, better than a dream come true. They should really come back...

    shit i just read Daniel's AMA on reddit . i know i'm years late but here's what he said about the third album : "Not sure if it will ever be available to the general population, but that has nothing to do with WB, they were very good to us during the split. I love that 3rd album though, its very weird. Think Idiot Pilot mixed with R. Kelly and Justin Timberlake."
