    I can't tell if I like this or not, giving them a good chance right now. :bigthink

    They're playing a great venue the inbetween Coachella weekends out here.

    Anyone seen or heard these guys?

    Yeah, I've been streaming the album a couple times too.

    The first two songs are killer. Then the album gets kind of sucky. I think it's the singers voice, and that it can get annoying'ish.

    I want to check out the show. They played a show here in December with Run the Jewels, but it was a Sunday night.

    Love their previous album, "Holy Fire." Their latest is pretty good, but may be a bit of a step back.

    I've seen them live, and, from what I remember, recommend it.

    Well, for what it's worth, I fee that I have my finger on the pulse of music, and not a week goes by that I don't get introduced to new (to me) music from 20-30 years ago
