We Were Troping Anyway:
- Alternate Reality Game: One was used to promote the EP The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties.
- Instrumentals: All but one of their songs have no lyrics to them (the exception being Come to Me, sung by The Cure frontman Robert Smith).
- Overly Long Name: A few of their songs and album titles go into this, like "Install a Beak in the Heart that Clucks Time in Arabic", "I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood", and The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties.
- Spoken Word in Music: Amongst others on Another Code Against the Gone, 2412, Asphalt & Trouble (featuring a monologue from Full Throttle) and Massive Star at the End of It's Burning Cycle (featuring dialogue from Wizards).
- Word Salad Title: Some of their song titles (and most of their album titles) don't make any real sense, as is the case with songs like "Install a Beak in the Heart that Clucks Time in Arabic", "I Swallowed Hard, Like I Understood", and "The Distant and Mechanized Glow of European Dance Parties", as well as albums like The Fall of Math, The Destruction of Small Ideas, and We Were Exploding Anyway.
