I hear similarities with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Doves - not surprising as they are all contemporary UK Indie bands.  That is a good thing in my book.
 

BRMC very much from San Fran...
Sometimes I think we all underestimate how influential R.E.M. was and will be for some time to come.
On my high definition sound card and speaker system......this recording sounds really coooolll.....Awesome......I can't keep my legs from moving with the beat....if I wasn't working I'd be running crazy......hahaha
I don’t know where he finds these songs but I am so grateful for RP very wonderful station
It just takes some few seconds to recognise that a certain song is played by The Boxer Rebellion. Love it!

They're on tour in the US starting in San Diego at the end of September. Hope to see them in San Francisco.
Good album.
On second listen - Bump up from 7  > 8 !

So is it just me or does the drummer keep varying up the tempo slightly, particualrly during the chorus?  There seems to be a slight pull back happening, and it keeps throwing me off.

Without looking, I was wondering if it was the Tragically Hip. Well, OK. I like the T-Hip. This is still good.
