These Toronto natives emerged onto the Indie scene with their debut album Feel Good Lost in 2001, quickly followed by their 2002 sophomore release, You Forget It In People. The 11-piece band was praised by critics for their unique brand of lush, hypnotic rock, and You Forget It In People took the Juno Award (Canadian GRAMMY) for Alternative Album of the Year. The album was released in the U.S. by indie label Arts and Crafts in fall 2003. Bee Hives, an album of rarities and B-sides, followed in 2004 and in 2005, the band released a self-titled album featuring musical appearances from members of Stars, Metric, Do Make Say Think, Raising the Fawn and The Dears among others. This ambitious work met with further praise by fans and critics alike, and the band embarked upon a North American tour immediately following its release.
