Originally the backing band at a burlesque house, the band released their first album "Supermelodrama" in 2002, "Una Volta" in 2003, "How it Ends" in 2004, and an EP of covers "Curse Your Little Heart" in 2006. They also contributed to the soundtrack of the Sundance hit "Little Miss Sunshine", performing the score by Mychael Danna. « hide
