    "Kitty in the Middle" is just really reminding me of a chilled indie electronica version of Shiv-R, maybe it's just the vocals in the track, but maybe the slow bpm and bass which is in some Shiv-R tracks

    Different strokes...these guys had never managed to trigger my synthpop jones beyond the Hurts level (which is about a B-), but I'm in love with those two songs.

    These guys are slipping. Apocalypso is amazing and a lot of Beams and Pacifica are great, but No fun and Goodbye... aren't good.

    Hey x-truder. Apparently, amongst the remixes, there will be an extended version appearing on the single.

    "I'll stick around for their next album, though." Hah, so generous! Honestly, they left the follow up to Apocalypso gestate for too long. The public is fickle and loses interest. This often happens to artists, they release a big album, and then think that the public will understand taking an extended sabbatical to "hone their craft".

    My People is a great song. The music video makes it even better.
