Super tight, folk rock, fuzzed out, music that brings a smile across my face. I love you, Conor.

Fav Tracks: Harmony Hall, This Life, Rich Man, Married In a Gold Rush, Sympathy, and Sunflower

Fav Tracks: Cuz I Love You, Jerome, and Truth Hurts

Least Fav: Lingerie or Boys

Yes. I simply find EITS, as described, quite innocuous and the entire quip of emotionless post-rock just tires me. If your band doesn't have any unique personality or bite, they don't take me on my expectations of post-rock while overall being far too slow/predictable.
