Au on Tour with The Dodos and Deerhoof

A lot of people have told me that I like "weird" music. I'm guessing, they would consider Au one of the bands that fits under that banner. However, I don't consider them weird at all. I find them quite talented and unique, albeit it a little experimental. But I've come to really like music that doesn't sound like everything else that's out there. This definitely doesn't sound like everything else. They utilize so many different instruments and sounds, well it's hard to figure out exactly what it does sound like... Sometimes their sound is so full it's downright crowded. But it sounds good, so that's all I need to know.
