8 that will probably turn into a 9 within a few more plays
I love songs like this. It is just a vibe, a feeling that washes over you while listening. Nostalgia provoking...

Fred,
I'm thinking of issuing a tube of  medicinal waxy substance called "Balm for the lugholes"
You wouldn't mind if I license this?

I loved this song, thank you. I'd be curious to learn more about the time signature or whatever else he's doing to get that sound.  Remarkable. Hi, from Portlandia. 
I'm hearing a Roland Orzabal influence here. I like it very much!
I can't decide whether to give this a 1 or 10. It balances on that knife-edge between truly awful and inspired...

Read eyes to be deceived.
The horns carry the lovely sonorousness I loved in Dead Can Dance's later music and now miss.  Thanks, RP!  I'm liking a lot of what I'm hearing from this group.
OMG-you guys are blowing my mind this afternoon! I'm getting a buzz from just listening! ! {#Dancingbanana_2}
So cool!  Thank you Proclivities

Here's a link to a larger image of that cover.  It is pretty cool.
I'm glad the bassoon was given a little love; those of our ilk are underappreciated.
Thought for sure this was Younger Brother. I like YB.
Wow.  Very nice pairing of "Imogen Heap — Canvas" and this track  ...  go Bill.
I bought the album - it is excellent overall.
Loving this.

Sounding like Alt -J and, or Tame Impala.

The new sound.

Is it just me or are the lyrics not matching?

Corrected.

Time to spend a little cash. Thanks for another discovery, Mr & Mrs G.

These guys were around before Alt-J, but this sort of "folk-tronica" sound has been around for quite a while - before these guys as well.  It's not as if Alt-J has really been around long enough to "make their influence" anyhow.  Obviously though, contemporaries often influence each other - they may even know each other.
A wonderful follow up even without the full band. Scintillating.
Bill will you stop playing this great music! I've been trying to add a second Sonos Play 3 for 2 hrs now but I can't turn RP off to complete the installation!

I like this tune too. It will take a few more listens to pinpoint the Alt-J-isms I'm hearing. Certainly the overall tone, the dub-steppish double-time percussion placed around the background, and some of the voicing. (But not the voice of Joe Newman!)  It took me a while to appreciate Alt-J. It's good all around.
