You ever heard a band, thought they were cool, then saw them live and thought they were even cooler, then bought the CD and realised they are actually plain amazing?

If you haven't do that with Andy Glenn and Ritch, I did, and man am I glad. These chaps are ex members of the Green Acre but I don't even know who they are or what they played but im sure it wasn't as good as AG&R, and if it is i will eat my Yankees cap.

This band is basically take everything that rocks you about melodic indie rock, not emo or hardocore or punk, I am talking about pure melodic structures here, then cut and pasting them around the most originally danceable rhythms and tight as anything drumming. I want to call it jazzy but it's a term that is completly over used, I don't want to call it mathy because this has nothing to do with algebra either, lets call it awesome instead. There are not much vocals, but you don't even notice your too busy picking out all the new rhythms you pick up everytime you hear it. As I said to the drummer from Long Live just before we saw AG&R live "i only have one song, but i dont care, i could listen to it a thousand times"

Well here is 4 songs on the audaciousartexperiment to listen to a thousand times.
