Jim Yoshii Pile-Up

Lately I've been listening a lot to this track by the band Jim Yoshii Pile-Up. I really don't know much about them. I know they released a split EP with Xiu Xiu which was recorded by Chris Walla of Death Cab who also recorded the Decemberists' The Tain EP. I also found out that Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu does back-up vocals on this track I've been listening too. So they must be good yeah? Anyway here's the track and the video which is very Bear City-ish.
