After hearing their latest album "In Case We Die," the feeling might be mutual for most listeners. All the typical pop instruments (guitar, bass, keys) come together with some rather nontraditional instruments (musical saw, tuba, hand and power tools) to create a frenetic sound that is as pleasing as it is indefinable.
