    There are some B&S comparisons to be made, but overall this paves it's own distinct road in feel. They both serve up something different.

    Despite the Belle and Sebastian comparisons, The Hill for Company is one of the best albums I've heard recently.

    Nice but sounds far too much like Belle and Sebastian.

    Karl Smith joined a band called Small Sips, Pete Cohen's now with Khancoban. Both equally great.

    For what some term 'lo-fi indie', Charity Board kicked my ass right through my ears. Awesome track. Sad to hear a band with such a wonderful sound, and then hear that they're no more. Also, by the sound I would have sworn they were Irish. Clearly I need reeducation.

    Why do so few people know them? Fantastic melodies; make you wonder why nobody thought of them! * by/e (//)/(()
