An indie band formed in 2001. Originally three persons (Tylan Greenstein, Doris Muramatsu, and Nate Borofsky) they later added a drummer, JJ Jones. Formerly a 'folk rock' band they changed their genre to 'folk pop.' Neither of these things has substantially altered their sound.
Critically well received, great variety of instruments and lead singers between songs and a banter-heavy stage presence are notable features. As of 2010 they are based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Notable examples of the gender irreverence suggested in the band name are Ty's song 'Young James Dean,' which can serve as something of a lesbian or transman anthem, and Nate's popular cover of 'Son of a Preacher Man,' but the majority of their music is concerned with other things.
