Caught this song on the KEXP podcast. They're got a pretty cool sound. This song grabbed me right away. It's a good find.

Beiruts album Gulag Orchestra is absolutely amazing. If you liked beirut, then check out Final Fantasy (Owen Pallet). Stuff can be found on youtube or myspace.

Nice find. Although I'd say more Rufus Wainwright or Antony and the Johnsons than Jeff Buckley.

"Scenic World (Second Version)" from the album "Lon Gisland" is by far one of the most amazing beautiful songs I have ever heard. It just seems to resonate. Check out a sample of it here (where I actually found out about the band):

More Ron Sexsmith than Jeff Buckley. Honestly, I can't hear Buckley at all.

Good to see some theatrics in the video, reminiscent to me of Gogol's Overcoat, if anyone was lucky enough to see the CanStage production. Great song. Thanks.
