I have this album for a while now and I must say Mutual Friends is one of the albums that I can listen from the first song till the last. Normally I love making playlists of different artists, according to my mood but I promise this girls is perfect for your saturday mornings. 

Their myspace page and official web site. If you want to listen my favorite songs of the album, first listen to this, then this and finally this.
