The Guillemots
I have no idea how to pronounce their name, but I have just discovered that a Guillemot is a kind of penguin. Fyfe Dangerfield, MC Lord Magrao, Aristazabal Hawkes, Greig Stewart are The Guillemots, a swinging smart band from London. "Trains to Brazil" is so surprising in how it has a big band, jazzy classic feel, yet it mixes in random explosions of weird sounds along with off kilter, yet exuberantly exhilarating vocals (with the occasional yodel,) it's great stuff!

They have a quite odd and interesting website at http://www.guillemots.com/, as well as three more songs to hear at http://www.myspace.com/guillemotsmusic.
