I saw these guys live back in 2010 without knowing very much about the band and only being familiar with a song or two. I walked away from that show blown away and instantly hooked. 2011 was a big year for the group, they signed on with Sub Pop and saw their albums re-release, and steady word of mouth from their live sets saw them finally start to blow up. It was nice to see the band getting some well deserved recognition, and I look forward to even bigger things from them in the New Year, with hopefully a new album in the works. Speaking of new material, they just posted this new track titled, "While You Were Gone" on their facebook page from a video shot in Seattle with The Ballard Sessions.
