There are good hippie rock groups and bad hippie rock groups, the numbers fall into category one. They are free spirited, and produce jangly rock tunes tinged with a bit of melancholy and sadness. However, they don't throw their "free spirited nature" in your face, meaning they don't constantly remind you of how hip and new age-y they are. They are also a band that I think can be enjoyed by multiple age groups, they aren't restricted by musical barriers or genre labels; their goal is just to produce enjoyable albums. I also like the fact that the numbers defy stereotypes, not only is there an equal male to female ratio, but the band members also look like realistic human beings; they aren't unbelievably attractive, they are all a tad over-weight and are the antithesis of what the modern music industry considers "marketable."
