A wonderful young group singed by Barsuk records from the indie-rock homeland of Washington State. Name came from a psychedlic song from the 60's.

Not emo. Unfortunately, if you write lyrics that are borderline depressing you get labeled "emo" when their music is more in line with other bands of that areas like Modest Mouse, and even The Shins.

Easily one of the greatest bands today.
Emo? Please. Bright Eyes sounds even less emo these days.

Amazing Indie/Emo band. Performances are the experience of a lifetime.
Death Cab for Cutie rock live!

A "band" soo awful that listeners consider killing themselves.
One such listener of Death Cab For Cutie includes Elliot Smith.

Kickass band (apparent by huge follwig of fans) that plays 'emo.' Whatever that means, im not sure. Emo seems to be a hugely wide classification.

You can judge the lyrics of your own:
"the new year"
...
so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogues bleed into one

i wish the world was flat like the old days
then i could travel just by folding a map
no more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
there'd be no distance that can hold us back.
...

personally, i like nerdy their little intros:
the glove compartment isn't accurately named
and everybody knows it.
so i'm proposing a swift orderly change.

cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
and all i find are souvenirs from better times
before the gleam of your taillights fading east
to find yourself a better life.
...
Im tough, i listen to slipknot. DCFC sucks, they are pussies. Since Ben Gibbard has a beautiful... i mean wussy voice, i can kick his ass, so I am cooler.
Im really inscure about my self image, all songs must be about murder.

Actually, im a giant pussy, and i cant listen to "the new year" without crying, so i listen to shallow death metal shit.

The epitome of an Indie/Emo band.

Let's go to the Death Cab For Cutie concert after I finish putting on my womens' jeans and cutting my wrists.
