This 2005 collection, their second release for Chicago's Flameshovel label, presents Chin Up Chin Up tracks primarily recorded in '02 and '04. The Windy City ensemble showcases its off-kilter brand of chiming, guitar-driven indie-rock on tunes like the slinky opener, "Collide the Tide." In addition to two remixes, the compilation also includes one new song--the spare, acoustic "Falconz and Vulcanz." The enhanced portion of the CD contains a video for "We Should Have Lived Like We Were Skyscrapers".
