This is the version from their first LP, “The Rhumb Line,” but a longer version also appears on their “Ra Ra Riot EP.” I saw them last night opening before Andrew Bird, and they made me more excited than I have been for a long time. The band members obviously know each other very well and have this casual, but intense bond the entire time, and are all so absorbed in the music the entire time. And the electric violin and cello (!) were incredible, adding this sonorous layer to the whole band’s sound. They will transport you away.
