    The singer looks like she's singing in a karaoke, which is quite funny.

    They grew up in Portland. What do you expect? Something not strange? I think this is such a great little break from typical music. Shangri-La could be one of my favorite songs of all time.

    Dude, first of all it's "Mozart". Second of all, yes Mozart would repeat material, but he would always shape it and change it. His themes would go through variations and modulations. His themes would evolve over the course of his pieces keeping them fresh and original. This music is just the same faux-intellectual hipsteresque line over and over again with cheap synth that sounds like it was made off of some cheap toy keyboard. Don't even compare Mozart with these hipsters.

    "If I can't go to heaven, let me go to LA....or Oregon on a summer's day" .... I actually like this, and I'm a granny... Iol ...They are witty, which is always a good thing in music! And, for those with failing hearing & eyesight, the lead singer is OBVIOUSLY a woman: 1)Listen to the timbre of her voice, especially her speaking voice. 2) There's no Adam's apple. (The verbal nastiness of some of you people is appalling, your mouths should be washed out with soap. Shame on you!)

    Possibly, but isn't that typical of some of the classic rock tunes....ie, "Come On Baby, Light My Fire", regardless of the singer...... And, some Motzart is like that, too... lol

    How to make a song in two easy steps: 1. Write a chorus. 2. Repeat 35 times in a row.

    Compared to the other NPR shows this was pretty lame. I scrubbed through the set trying to find something forgivable. No joy. Even the people making the music look bored out of their minds. They're AT LEAST getting now enjoyment from it, that's forsure.

    sorry you're having a rough time with it. :( good news is you don't gotta listen to it if it's not your jam. i personally love it and really understand and identify with their sound, look, and meaning. and as to whether claire is a he or she (as far as i know she goes by she), why's it matter all that much? are we not all a mixture of feminine and masculine? anyone who can identify and express something within themselves that is not normally accepted and expressed...well, i think that's powerful

    If the Gong Show were still on, they'd take down the gong and beat them to death with it.

    Im trying to get along with thoese new-age hippies, but i just can't . She can't sing for shit and I still can't understand if that's a "she" or a "he"; the "music" is not so great too, but that I can endure. Noone on this planet can convince me that you people actually enjoy these eardrumraping sounds... hippies, I would have been soo glad if you just stayed in the last century :/
