Californian (later NYC) electronic dance band formed in 1996 who released two albums in the early 2000s. The first, ‘S.T.R.E.E.T. D.a.D’, was instrumental but praised for its ability to convey emotion without words. The second, ‘Let Us Never Speak Of It Again’, added vocals. They broke up in 2005 when members concentrated on side-projects like !!! and LCD Soundsystem. To me, this is just dance music for people who don’t like dance music, with all the self-conscious restraint that implies. Also, the titles are so wack. I am glad I wasn’t in the band practice where someone suggested “Hair Dude, You’re Stepping On My” as a name for a song and everyone else agreed…
