Influenced by: African and Middle Eastern music
Notable: The band released a self-titled debut filled with frantic, tribal grooves in September 2005. Since then, they've gotten more into Middle Eastern music and are adding more percussion to their sound. A second album could drop in the summer or fall, Ford said.
Quotable: "Not to say that this record won't be high energy, but it won't be as immediate high energy as the first one," Ford said. "I think a little more patient, maybe, more crafted. But how it comes out is something totally different, because we're weirdos."
