With their fourth album, Furr, under their belts, the Portland, Oregon sextet has refined their sound on their new album, which has drawn inspiration from bands like Fleet Foxes and Beach House, and have departed somewhat from their previous influences like The Grateful Dead.

They have also found that they are thankful for the help of their new label Sub Pop because they are too busy touring to take care of all the details as they had done with their previous three albums.

Songs performed: "Sleepytime in the Western World," "Furr," and "Black River Killer."
