At any given time, as few as six or [[LoadsAndLoadsOfMembers as many as nineteen members]] will be involved with the group. Members often [[RevolvingDoorBand come and go]] to pursue other projects after they finish a tour or album. The group's sound could be considered a combination of all of its members' respective musical projects, and is characterized by a very large number of sounds, grand orchestrations featuring guitars, horns, woodwinds, and violins, unusual song structures, and an experimental and sometimes chaotic production style.

Added DiffLines:

** The live shows are almost always this in terms of the female vocals, as Emily Haines, Feist and Amy Millan have their own commitments, so Lisa Lobsinger tours with the band instead.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Feel Good Lost'' is a completely instrumental post-rock album with elements of trip hop, ambient and alternative hip hop, sounding more like a scrapped Bark Psychosis record than anything the band would go on to do after it's release.


* TheCameo: [[{{Rush}} Geddy Lee]] appears as a judge in the video for "Fire Eye'd Boy".

Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: the ''Bee Hives'' version of "Lover's Spit", which is taken at a somewhat slower tempo, has piano as the lead instrument instead of electric guitar, and most notably puts Feist on lead vocals instead of Kevin Drew. It's also about three minutes longer, mainly due to a long guitar solo at the end of the song.

* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: "I'm Still Your Fag."

to:

* EpicRocking: The greatest example would be "It's All Gonna Break", which is about 10 minutes long. Most of their longer tracks are on ''Feel Good Lost'' and ''Bee Hives'', such as "Last Place", "Backyards" and "Da Da Da Da".
* IntentionallyAwkwardTitle: "I'm Still Your Fag."Fag" and "Handjobs for the Holidays".



* NewSoundAlbum: ''Feel Good Lost'', their first album, is a mostly instrumental post-rock record, while ''You Forgot It In People'', their follow-up, is a much more straightforward indie rock record in the style of Bright Eyes or Arcade Fire.

Then they gained six new members and dropped their self-titled album, which was a much more dense, noisy and experimental.
