Critical Jargon: Chicago-bred, Brooklyn-transplanted rival Friedberger siblings Eleanor and Matthew spin sparse and shambling music concrete lullabies. Simultaneously old timey and contemporary, it's kinda like listening in on a conversation between two tin cans connected by a fire wire cable.

Quoth the Band Member: "We'd like to play for little kids and in old folks' homes, and play in nasty bars as well." - Matthew Friedberger, guitar, keys, vocals, etc.
