There were a lot of similar bands around this time
A mix of folkie-sounding electronic stuff with more electronic pop. The vocalist has a nice touch and makes the songs come alive. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
What You Want is the only one weknow about
What You Want (c. 2000)
What You Want
No longer available
"Neurotica" is the first track of theirs that made me really stand up and pay attention to them in the midst of a bunch of mp3 downloads, but all of the songs have hooks and great moments. This is another time when the only music available from a band is a burned CD from mp3. This are 8 strong tracks, though "Cold Comfort" may tend a little more towards plain folk than I usually like, on repeated listens I got quite fond of it. And after many, many listens I still love "Neurotica." (Neile)
