* NewSoundAlbum: ''Brill Bruisers'' has a much more noticeable reliance on synthesizers and a denser sound in general. Also, ''Challengers'' was composed almost entirely of ballads, but this didn't carry over into their subsequent material.

* DoubleSubversion: The song "Execution Day" features this lyric:
-->''On this day which began as execution day\\
And sure enough became execution day''



* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Neko Case remains a member of the band as female lead.

Part of the reason Kathryn Calder was hired was to serve as female lead on tour, so that they could tour independently of Neko's schedule. Only recently has Kathryn begun to sing lead on some songs that weren't Neko's. And you'd never guess she was a different singer from hearing them.
