Yep... I'd say they are one of the best bands, lyrically, that you can find right now.w They're live shows do get a bit energetic/rowdy. If that's not your cup of tea, you should go through their discography, particularly their "Gleam" EPs.
Just because someone mentioned Jim Croce earlier, I felt this cover was appropriate.
