Oh, I'm glad someone mentioned Uncut ... after hearing Shivaree on the mag's cover disc, I pulled some more of their stuff off napster and just had to go out and buy the album the very next day. Not only do they have a kooky-quirky American-gothic kinda thing going (IMO, anyway), but the band's improbably-named singer-songwriter, Ambrosia Parsley, cites the novels of Jim Thompson as something she likes.

BTW, if anyone is interested in pulling something off napster (or macster, for non-pc types) look out for the tracks 'bossa nova' and 'goodnight moon'
... great stuff!
