BTW - I just learned that the Best Coast drummer up to around 2011 was formerly of the Vivian Girls. Here's a Vivian Girls post I made a while back: Indie Post June 2016.
BTW2 - I like your discovery Le Butcherettes. I'd never heard of them before but when I checked the logs of my favorite station I see in the list a couple that you've posted:
LE BUCHARETTES NEW YORK
LE BUTCHERETTES ACTRESS THAT ATE ROUSSEAU
LE BUTCHERETTES ALL YOU SEE IN ME IS DEATH
LE BUTCHERETTES HENRY DONT GOT NO LOVE
Good pedigree/Vivian girls
Terry Gender Bender's a go getter
I feel old when remember Coldplay, R.E.M. and U2 were once independent too!

Of all the times I've heard about GY!BE or flipped past them at the record store, I've never taken the time to listen to them. Because of your post, I'm finally giving it a go. I started with Lift your skinny fists..., and now I'm about 15 minutes into F#A#infinity. It's good. Really, really good. Right in my wheelhouse.
Thanks for the prompting!
I tend to find post-rock a little tedious. Most songs, although unstructured, tend to follow a fairly predictable arc. In the end, songs and bands are fairly interchangeable(to me). Not so with GY!BE. This is great. It's far more orchestral and experimental than most post-rock, with multiple movements in the same same. I suppose lumping it in with post-rock would be unfair.
edit: what a useless post. sorry for yammering on.

I'm glad my recommendation worked out! F#A# Infinity occupies the CD storage space that gets played often at this place. When I heard "Dead Flag Blues" on radio, it was an album I HAD to have. I've slowly been backfilling their catalogue since then.
And on that note, here's this wonderful piece of Canadian art.
No that's OK. I like Tool in the Heavy Metal genre for much the same reasons. I like the bands that everyone tries to pin a label on and come up with about 5 or 6. Radiohead is another.
I hope you guys don't mind, since this is mostly where I participate.
