Song of the Moment: "checksum"
"checksum" by From Monuments to Masses found on On Little Known Frequencies
I discovered this band at a show sometime early last year, I think they opened in support of The Lonely Forest (who I also highly recommend, and not just because their lead singer is a doppleganger for Jake Gyllenhaal). The prominence of the drummer in this 99%-instrumental group is what really hooked me. And, as often seems to happen when I discover bands, they shortly thereafter went defunct. That shouldn't stop you from checking them out, though, especially the excellent album opener "checksum" that always succeeds in producing some blinds-closed white guy dancing whenever my music player deems it suitable to play.
