I was hoping it wouldn't take long for this review to come out!!

Unfortunately I'm waiting until August 15 to hear this record, as that will be the day me, my brother, and my best friend (all avid Kindo fans) are all reunited. We're all very excited

However I loved both singles and all of the live videos of new songs

So... what does this band sound like?
they used to sound a lot lot lot like Mae, but now ten years later have been getting progressively more complex (like, The Receiving End of Sirens level of complex) along with getting progressively more jazzy (think Miles Davis) to the point where they switched from being a rock band with jazz influences to now being a jazz band with rock influences.

They are also famous for the youtube videos, because watching them play their stuff is just impressively fantastic. Don't just listen - watch them.

This might sound weird, but I've always placed them on a spectrum of awesomeness, squarely in the middle with Foo Fighters on one far end and Dave Koz on the other, hahahah

Do you understand what I mean by Eastern vibe? Haha. I just want to make sure I'm not crazy.
i don't know man, the way they work the 5/4 time signature throughout the song is just crazy awesome in my opinion. I think the song showcases how subtle and classy their skills and technique have become

That's the kind of thing that should have been in the review. Thanks, man! They sound interesting.
haha you're welcome! I've written my own review for them, so I'm kind of always prepared to plop this kind of talk out, it's my pleasure. I hope you enjoy them, they are worth the investment of time, money, and love

Can someone give me a RIYL for this?
excuse the verbosity, but here's what a wrote for someone else

but the summation of this would be Mae +Foo Fighters + Miles Davis + Dave Koz. not necessarily any of those separately, but moreso all blendered together

however, if you liked Mae's (m)orning EP, that's more along the lines of Kindo

It's hard to say...it's jazz music. Very complex jazz music. You know Sleeping at Last? Imagine them with jazz influences, I guess.

Yes, do! I actually might prefer them to Kindo.
I think Kindo is a much better band (especially now considering that Kindo has released more albums than TD&A), but I prefer TD&A stylistically

the first 7 tracks from The Bell and the Hammer are 7 of my favorite songs in all of musicdom
