Does anybody like this band? They're a seven piece from Scotland, and thus, seem to get compared to Belle & Sebastien a lot. But really, they're fantastic. They have this weird, kooky look going on, but their music is really chilled and laid back, but cool. Acoustic-Melodic stuff mainly, with silky vocals. I really like it. One of their best songs, in my opinion, is "Suspended From Class" ("I should be suspended from class; I don't know my elbow from my arse..."). Class. Try them. Or if you know them, what do you all think? I'm just buying their debut album, because the second was so good.

Can't say I'm a fan, but I have heard enough to know they are very good...
I should probably download more of their stuff.

I haven't heard much of their music, but what I've heard, I've liked. I'd say they are comparable to Belle & Sebastian, but not so much so as to lose their identity as a band! Most of what I've listened to seemed happy, and a little twee.

Missed this thread.
I love Underachievers..
There can never be enough good pop in this world.

Reminiscent of Adam Green I find.
The vocals (and the music somewhat) reminds me a tiny bit of US Indie band Yo La Tengo.

Yeahh they were amazing. Although some of the members were a bit butch I think they're perfectly fine.
