    Very nice. I'm sure you guys have a lot more appeal than the average Post-rock band. I like a lot of that genre, but sometimes I just don't want to listen to an entire twenty minute long song just for the last "release" section.

    Good work.
  3. whoa. That's pretty good.

    My band does the instrumental experimental thing to.


    oh, and I would change your default picture. It just sorta makes you look like Sonic Youth fan boys, which is fine, I'm one too.
  4. hey

    yeah we do have a lot of appeal cuz of the fitting everything in 4/5 minute songs. A lot of people have picked up on that with reviews and stuff, we like to think of our music as a cathartic release for any emotion you feel, whether that be for us the musicians or for the listening. Basically trying to put as much emotion into 4 minutes as we can.

    The Sonic Youth picture, its actullay down the road from where I live. I live in the most boring little town in the world. Nothing happens and its full of people who listen to Trance music drive around in "pimped" up cars, shout abuse at people and beat up old ladies. So the picture is kinda refreshing.

    If you want a CD sent over just email the_exploits_of_elaine@hotmail.com with your address, we have 3 available and if you're nice we may send all three!

    Great sound. Very "direct" to the heart and mind. I like that the hook is inseperable from the track.

    My group is a more confused and schizophrenic cousin of yours:

    I can dig it. I just got into the post rock stuff recently with Tortoise and Mercury Program and Six Parts Seven etc. The myspace playr isnt working for me now, so I'll check back later and give more feedbacks.
  9. Genius emo quote. I'll be in Montreal on January 6th, for my record release party at the Main Hall (Mile End):

    I plan on eating lots of poutines and dancing at Cleopatra's..... ;)

  10. Glad you're enjoying... keep listening
