    Saw him playing last night at the Fillmore after catching a blurb about it in the paper the night before. I picked up his first American released cd Dead Cities after hearing a song on a local radio station that would do an electronic music special every Saturday. That was 5 years ago and his style has changed quite a bit. His new stuff has a lot more instrumental sound to it now. The music is still very heavy though, but there are more songs that had an upbeat feel than I thought there would be. Kim+Jessie especially could be a radio song. Didn't hear a single bad song through the whole set. :cool:

    Give Dead Cities a shot. It is a lot different, like I mentioned a lot more electronic sound to it. Same feel though, really dramatic. Not too many songs up on youtube unfortunately.

    I have the dead cities album. Pretty good stuff. I've never been a big fan of electronic music, but its ever so slowly growing on me.
