A pretty good band

Saw these guys, What Made Milwaukee Famous, a couple weeks ago on Austin City Limits. Check out the video here of their track "Hellodrama". That's easily the best song on the album, called "Trying never to catch up". I got it off UCR's horrible cdigix system, so I don't know how y'all can find it short of buying it directly from Barsuk Records. I like the concept of a Shins-esque band with more down-to-earth subject matter and a smattering of 80s synth-pop.

The songs, they do run together, though.
