At last something I've never heard by a band I've never heard of beyond recognising the name

Woohoo!

No clue about these guys. I had assumed they were some contemporary outfit. This is going to be interesting.

If I find they don't really do it for me I have dibs on the "neutral" pun.

Ah now here's one I've been meaning to listen to for years. An old internet friend of mine grew up in the South and the Elephant 6 bands were huge for him and his buds and he recommended it time and again but I just never got round to it. Till now.

Also, I read Jeff Mangum's name as Jeff Magnum for years. (I prefer my malapropism.)
