...and they have captured my heart and then some...
I saw them play at ACL recently and was so happy that I finally got a chance to hear them play live. At the moment they are currently more of a w.o.m. band so their play time was an early one on Sunday. They are another awesome band from Seattle with a hodgepodge group of talented people. They met each other by chance and collaborated to create something absolutely fantastic. This is my favorite album of 2011. Hands DOWN.
"The songs are a result from those first inspired months pick at the multicolored threads of leaving home, finding home, and through that process of deconstruction, finding yourself. These are songs about crossing rivers and roads to get to the one you love, about family far away, and the desire to chase Technicolor dreams down foreign horizons.When people hear these songs, or see the band live, the first thing they have to do is tell someone else."

Below are two other great songs who didn't make the album cute but are so worth a listen or two.In the Summertime - The Head and the Heart by dianeleigh

This is one relatable band. I hope to see them many a more times.
