Skeletons - MONEY - 2008

I guess you could say that this highly experimental pop album is loosely based in funk. There are some hot rhythms, choice horn parts, good vocals, strange lyrics, ragged noise, muddiness, and a huge sonic palette. Digs into your ear canal to lay its eggs. Occasionally they'll sound like they're ripping off some more well-known bands, but there's so much bizarre shit going on that its an easily-forgivable offense.

Nail it on their Bandcamp.
Dont mean to butt in on Frankie's excellent post but I have been a large fan of these guys for years. Sadly I had lost touch with the group and only really gotten a chance to enjoy their 2007 effort "lucas".  Of course I enjoyed them more when they were called "Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities" but whats in a name really?
