Shecky Formé - 002 (2000)

Okay, back on it! It's a bit odd that the only release by Shecky Formé is called 002. Where is 001? Was there a 003? But oddness suits this band, with the art-pop Chris Vail. There's an archived ffwd article over at the theyyscene that reminds us that this was Vail's first major band, prior to XL Birdsuit, Vailhalen, and Key to the City. Vail's clear, soaring voice delivers gorgeous melodies couched in complex time signature and weird chord progressions.
