I'm listening to the Fiery Furnaces, and it just occured to me how similar they are to the early Split Enz stuff. Not obviously in terms of visuals and that, but more in the sense that their songs seem a bit schizophrenic, changing moods and time signatures and keys mid-way, flying off on musical tangents, with strange instruments and synthesizers making up the bulk of the sound. However even with all the weirdness, the songs are filled with beautiful little melodic hooks and ideas.

Just thought I'd share.
