For their next move, the band signed with Fontana Records for global distribution while remaining with Capitol in the USA. Their first album for the label, ''Four-Calendar Café,'' was recorded amidst continued turmoil, with Guthrie entering rehabilitation for substance abuse, and Fraser suffering a nervous breakdown. [[NewSoundAlbum It departed even further from their trademark complex dream pop,]] moving instead towards clear, conventional AlternativeRock. It drew a predictably mixed reaction. Their next album, ''Milk and Kisses,'' returned to heavily layered guitars, and incomprehensible lyrics.

The band broke up in 1997 while recording a new album, due to irreconcilable differences. All three members have gone on their own ways, with Raymonde and Guthrie focusing on producing for other artists, and recording solo albums. Fraser has had the most public exposure since, due to her vocal contributions to Music/MassiveAttack's song "Teardrop," and "Lament for Gandalf" off Music/HowardShore's soundtrack for ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings,'' but has otherwise stayed in a sort of semi retirement, only rarely releasing new material.

The band were supposed to reunite for the 2005 Coachella Festival, but Fraser pulled out for "personal reasons."
