I caught the band during Moogfest 2010 when they were playing challenging compositions from their last album, Congratulations. This song reveals a lighter touch, although an earlier single "Alien Days" (link to listen here on PopMatters) veers towards the overly complicated. The band will play the Virgin Mobile Freefest September 21 in Columbia, Maryland at the Merriweather Post Pavilion before heading over for a fall tour in the U.K. and Europe. This is a free show with donations going towards homeless youth, tickets available August 9 -- more info here.
