Biography: Any band that harbors the notion of making music a career and not just a quaint pastime to someday share with their children, knows it must continually push past its own creative boundaries.

It isn't just a smattering of half-finished throwaways surrounding a single strong track. Each of the five songs here rightfully stakes claim to its own slice of this indie-rock gem.
