First off, check out this great cover art. It's by Ramon Villalobos. He perfectly captured the sound of Filbert: finding beauty and wonder in the mundane and shitty. They're from Stockton, and y'know, Stockton sucks. If it's where you call home, you try to make the best of it.
If you like Pedro the Lion, Neutral Milk Hotel, or Why? this will appeal to you.
