For the last month or so I have been listening to their album "The Orchard" non-stop. I love the violin and cello work in it especially, it sounds very natural and not forced and gimmicky. I started listening to them originally because they are part of a large festival I am going to on the 16th and 17th along with about 20 other bands I had never listened to, but I got addicted to them along the way.

Some samples:

- Boys
- Dying is Fine
- Too Dramatic (Live)
- Foolish (Live)

Anyone else out there listen to them?

I listen to the Rhumb Line quite a bit. It's easygoing and happy, similar to Vampire Weekend in vocal style, but I'm dead into the strings.

Wow. I am impressed that you guys have heard and enjoy Ra Ra Riot. It seems that I'm the only one who listens to them among my friends. I'm extremely happy I found some others who like them. The Orchard is a great album, hopefully you guys bought (or downloaded :twisted: ) the bonus version and got the music video for boy and the bonus track. Keep on rocking RRR!
