Tjarko Busink I can't remember how I've stumbled upon this band, but man, they are FUN! The totally unexpected (and funny) turntable solo on If You Want Me To Stay made me very happy. I bought the entire discography. as I appreciate the combination of a high level of musicianship ánd a sense of humour a lot. The other albums are quite interesting, excellent and well produced too. Full of unexpected influences. Highly recommended for fans of The Bad Plus, Brad Mehldau, Tin Men and The Telephone, Sex Mob etc... Favorite track: If You Want Me to Stay.
