60s influences

Today, Steven recorded double-tracked lead and harmony vocals for "Filler," woodblocks on "The Clapping Song." He also edited the bass line on "Lucy" and pitch-shifted Arta's guitar on the old recording of "Thank You."

"Revival of 60s pop, The Beatles and The Beach Boys? That sounds like Belle and Sebastian."----I admit we are musically channeling the same influences. They even update their site everyday, answering fan questions, like Neon Phosphor. But, crucially, we are not twee or cute and are infinitely more pessimistic than they are. Of contemporary artists, I believe we are most similar to Elliott Smith, if you insist on comparisons.
